Mid-70's too cold?
    #4538271 - 08/15/05 04:09 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

In anyone's experience, is a temp in the mid-70's too cool for B+ to colonize?

not too cold, but it will take longer to colonize than if it was in the mid 80s

B+ on PF tek? it wouldnt be too cold, but your looking at likely doubling or even tripling the colonization time. Get your conditions optimal and you can a half pint colonized in 6 or 7 days with LC inoculation.

if you had B+ in a 18x18x8 casing, then mid to upper 70's would be a colonizing temp...

Happy Trails and GL to ya

If you are using PF style jars, put them in a small cardboard box on top of the fridge. The heat from the fridge will warm the jars and the box will keep them in the dark and discreet.

I agree doubling or tripling for sure! This will only give contams an edge but with a good sterile culture technique you will be fine. GL
