Quick Question...
    #456001 - 11/12/01 03:04 PM (15 years, 24 days ago)

I tried searching for the PFtek and got A LOT of information... would like to know when you can take off the tape on the jars in order to let fresh O2 into the cakes and CO2 out... also don't have those nifty filter bags.Any comments would be much appreciated-thanks

ok check it: keep the tape on...all the time, during sterilization, and then take tape off when you innoculate, (obviously), then put tape right back on. when you leave the jar in a dark warm place, still keep the tape on. if you want, after about a week, loosen the lid a bit, so too much CO2 doesn't build up. when the substrate is totally white with mycelium, then you jus cake out the cake, and let it sit and there ya go..magic :)

Well in my dreams I've done this before, I just had slow colonization. How much of the cake should be colonized because some strains do it differently. About what % of the cake should be done before I remove the tape(after incolonation)-thanks

well mah friend, although i am not even close to an expert on the topic, i would wait till the entire cake is colonized. so...basically 100%, or until it's all white when you turn the jar all the way around. what strand are you growing in these dreams? haha. also, when it IS all white, or close to it, you don't need to remove the tape i don't think. cuz you'll be takin the cake out of the jar anyways, right?

Thanks for responding back... well in my dreams it was the old rinky dinky "classics" but hey, my dreams start somewhere. Anyway I think you can take off the tape when colonized about 80% I was just a little curious about the aspect-hey thanks again.
