Colonization of poo/straw question
    #4519831 - 08/10/05 11:08 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi all. I was wondering what would be the least percent of surface colonization which would be acceptable before casing, or should it be 100% ?

The correct answer: It should be 100%

In reality, you can case at any point, even immediatly after spawning. You just run the risk of screwing more things up the more time you try to cut off...any less then 100% and your taking a risk, the risk starts very small, but goes up the more uncolonized it is.

It's been 5 days. It was one pint wbs per 16 qt rubbermaid, 50% straw 50% poo, pasteurized, about 3 inches deep, incubated at 82-84F in the dark.

Should it be colonized by now?

After 5 days? Impatient much? When its been two weeks you can worry.

Here's why. I overheated the sub somewhat, (reached 190F briefly)and I'm kind of anxious to case it so that it will get its non-nutritive layer.

Therefore should I case now, or wait some more and cross my fingers?

If its going to contam, it will contam. If its looking good after 5 days, chances are you'll be ok. Getting a little high for a few minutes isnt such a thing to worry about. If you put a casing layer over it that will only hide the contaminations. It should be sitting in a closet though not gettin disturbed so contams shouldnt be introduced, so no need for the protective layer. The protection only comes, when you move the protective layer of foil or saran wrap. You only need one layer of protection, you just change it as you go.

Gotcha. All I used was the lids that came with the rubbermaid, but it is in a closet being left alone.

One of those coffe cup warmers that keeps your cup of coffee hot is the heat source, it works like magic. The closet space stays around 82-84F, all the while I have the A/C blastin' in the main house. lol

Thanks you for the great advice, I think I get it now.

I've PC'd poo for a good hr at 15psi and had no probs. I'm not saying that's a good thing, but 190 for a few min will be ok.

Good advise scat. :thumbup:
