Moisture in colonizing jars.
    #458326 - 11/14/01 06:24 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

If moisture drops are showing up on the sides of the jars wherever there is myc. what should be done.
If there were such jars, straight pf tek still covered in tinfoil and bands tight.
If there were such jars in an incubator that is generating enough humidity to keep the sides of the cooler drippy.
If these lids were loosened would that make them even more humid inside?

Jars which are are colonizing DO NOT need to be kept in an overly humid environment. Water drops on the sides of your jar are ok to an extent, so long as your cake doesn't begin to turn bluish. If you must use an incubation unit, try to keep the RH ambient if at all possible. You should(if you haven't already) take the tape off of the jars and flip your cakes, make sure the surface they are sitting on is dry though.

Leave it be. Don't do a thing, Moisture will condense on the (cooler) glass.

I'm sorry, that may not be proper usage of the word. I just mean to keep the RH, inside the "incubation unit", the same as the room it is in (no need for any supplemental humidity during colonization period for jars)

------post edited------

I' sorry, I just read a post about stalled jars, and thought that was an issue with this post. You will be fine...
but still there is no need for supplemental humidity during colonization in jars

Oh, The humidity isnt intentional it is a byproduct of the heat source (fish tank heater in water).

There isnt any condensation on the outside of the jars, just on the inside walls of the cooler.

The tiny water drops are on the inside of the jars, but only where myc. is?!

Anyone know why it would only show up in those spots.

They are 8 days old and there is growth in 10 of 12.

First attempt (PF tek, HawksEye B+)

It is VERY obvious how much the heat accelerates the colonizing.

i've got the same thing with the water in my incubation chamber, I have to empty it out of the bottom ever day, nothing to be worried about dude, although it is a pain in the ass. next incubation chamber I do with be with a heating pad and a thermostat. fuck it, this is just to much of a hassle..

my jars are coming along nicely though, no complaints there

as for jars not needing to be in a humid chamber, please remember that some of us live in the drylands, I saw soo many posts saying it wasn't nessesary... guess what, all my labor was TOASTED... I've since been using a humidified rubbermaid for colonization and things are a-ok
