To Tape or Not to Tape
    #4655256 - 09/13/05 03:53 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Immediatly after inoculation should the jars be retaped? I havent cultured in a while and I seem to recall not retaping with no ill effects...as a point of fact I believe it was recommended to me for air exchange reasons. Have I royally messed up by not retaping?

Thanks for your time.

Keep the tape off for air exchange. If you're worried, use a filter like tyvek or polyfil. I use polyfil.

i use foil for my top, that way enough air gets in and contams stay out. the ONE time i used my lid (with holes in it and no tape) i got green mold and cobweb on ALL 4 of my cakes... it was my only syringe of OI to:(

After I inoculated mine and put dry verm on the top then I untaped it. Now I have mold.

When I grew from cakes, I didn't even leave the lids on after inoculation. The dry verm on top was enough to keep out contams.

I didn't tape (I used verm), I currently have 7 jars going and I just birthed an additional 2. No contams. Just be strile.

edit: clarified my use of verm

you inoculated, then put dry verm on top? the dry verm goes in the jar on top of the substrate to act as a contam barrier. Im sure you know this, as you have a decent rating...perhaps im misunderstanding you? Im nearly positive I removed the tape immediatly preceeding inoculation before and had a great sucess rate. on top of this, I am very cleanly while injecting...lysol in the air, 10:1 water/bleach sterilization solution on my hands, arms, table, and jar lids, shower before hand, clean clothing, bandana around mouth, candels, etc. It is my understanding contamination has much more to do with cleanliness while innoculating as opposed to a contaminate working its way into the mix after the fact.

yea, i managed to dig up a number of old posts on the issue...the related threads thing is very helpful (if you cant tell im new to this websight)...it would seem tape off is actually a benefit, provided you are clean during the original inoculation....we shall see i suppose
