Quick substrate question......
    #4554743 - 08/19/05 10:29 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I used my just made substrate today to get ready for the inoculation process.

There is about 2 1/2 pint jar piles left over that i did not use.
The next time i'm going to inoculate and even have spare jars to use would be sunday.

My question is....
Should i keep the substrate or will it go bad by sunday?
Or should i just throw it away and not use it.
I dont want no contamination nor do i want to risk it.

No matter what I say and no matter what I write here.

I'm sick of always looking at this page with a blank stare.

have you pc'd yet? seeing as the substrate material is fairly cheap i don't think you should necessarily keep that as apposed to making a fresh batch as needed.

Stick it in the fridge or freezer. It is basically the same as food, and will keep just like it.

The only thing would be it drying out some between now and then. I would check the moisture content of it before using it. As long as you sterilize it sunday contams won't be a problem.

you will be fine. you do not have to worry about moisture content if you are keeping them for 2 extra days. People have kept jars for over a month and they were still viable. you do not need to throw them in the fridge or anything like that.

Yes, substrate is cheap, but throwing out good substrate is just a waste of sub and time of pcing. if you have left over sub, you could throw it in a steril zip lock and when you have jars, you could use it.

or, just pick up more jars, they are very cheap.
