When to remove tinfoil?
    #4673533 - 09/17/05 11:57 AM (12 years, 9 days ago)

I tired searching couldn't find the answer I wanted. I followed Docs WBS tek and my jars are now 10 days in. After I inoculated I just put the tinfoil back on because in some of the pics on the tek, he has tinfoil on colonized jars. I was just wondering when would be a good time to take the tinfoil off?

If you have some kind of filter or dry vermiculite top layer you can take the foil off.

I have polyfill stuffed in the inoculation hole, will that suffice?

ya the foil is mainly used for when you PC to help keep the water out of your jars, but i gess you could leave it on for some extra protection afterwords.. like foomanshroom said as long as you have some sort of filtering system for your jars i would take it off i think it would hinder the air exchange in your jars..  thats just :2cents: .. hope it helps out some.. l8r

My jars are about 40% right now, so will removing the foil help speed the colonization? They are already going quicker than I had anticipated. I would just hate to lose the jars now to something stupid.

My jars have been in a sealed plastic tupperware, the holes arent covered and I removed the foil before inoc and never put them back on.
