Yea, that works.

Main thing that is most important, is to make sure that you don't get the water simmering too much. Just a slow simmer and don't let very many seeds bust open.

WBS Test.

If you can squeeze the seed lightly and make it burst, then it's at MAX CAPACITY - That's all you need.

Soaking 30 hours gets that capacity.

It doesn't need simmering.

Popcorn and rye are the Main ones that should be simmered

I don't know. 

My jars seem to be drying out after they reach about 50% and I don't know why.  I only soak for ~30.... no simmer.

I am going to try both soaking and simmering now to see if that helps.:shrug:

It's probably something to do with air exchange...

That or your TiT is to dry and is sucking out moisture...

What do you use as a lid?

Yeah I definitely plan to simmer, unless it's not necessary. I plan to use a casing layer of http://www.tennstud.com/catalog/item/1676047/1184508.htm ...will that require simmering or will that be bad for it?

Lol.

That's rdy to go....

WBS doesn't need to be simmered.

Agar covered this a long time ago....

Simmer if you want, but it's most def. not necessary.

Even if I'm only soaking 12-14 hours as opposed to 24?

For air exchange I have been using agar's method...


I have tried two holes, and one hole in the lid. My TiT is always between 60-80% humidity. It has water condensation on it if I have a lot of jars in it. I keep the lid on the TiT and cover with a thermal blanket at all times.

The only thing I haven't really given a fair shot is using polyfil instead of tyvek on my jar lids.

I don't think it hurts to simmer. I've read some that only soak for a few hours and then simmer with success. Hell, look up Anno's method. No soak, no simmer.

Once my jars are pc'd can i put em in a shoe box in my room? (the same conditions for incubation...stays about 80-85?) until my syringe arrives?

I recommend- if possible, leave them in the Pressure Cooker until your syringe arrives. It will definitely stay sterile in there. A shoe box might not be a good idea. I also use a Rubbermaid type tub that has been wiped out good with bleach water. You need to create a sterile environment for them to stay in.

Also, keep the foil on until you knock em up.

Also, deleting your original thread- just because you are finished with that step does not help others out very much that are looking for answers that had the same questions as you. :rolleyes:

Sorry, I guess that is kind of selfish of me.  I'll definitely think before I delete a post next time.  :frown:

I thought you were trying to save the time of people who are answering questions here, which would technically be an un-selfish move which you should be commended for, but I agree, if everyone deleted threads after the questions are answered there wouldn't be anything for noobs to read but teks.
