8 days in the incubator.. and..................
    #4714705 - 09/26/05 04:13 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

6 BRF jars show very nice growth.

2 of them show ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

what could have went wrong? I did the same with all of them..

i thought maybe they werent getting any air (i have two layers of tinfoil on them, could i have totally blocked off their air by accident? i poke a hole through the top lair of tin foil on one of them just to see...

anyone?

another thing to note is the growth only started at 1-2 inoculation points in each of the successful jars.. so is it possible there just werent enough spores in the syringe water??

if only one inoculation point showed growth in a jar, will it take 4 times longer to colonize? (assuming a 4 inoculation point standard)

You're fine. those two might not work because of invisible contams. I did 12 1/2 pint jars my first run and two showed nothing at all. Just give them time or throw them out. Still have 4 jars (Which I hope you case :-p) Good luck:peace:

thnx man.. maybe ill seperate them from their friends just in case these possible invisible contams are contagous... and ill see what happens to them. How much more yield do you get from casing compared to dunked cakes?

Quite a bit. I moved from cakes to casings then kicked myself in the ass for not just starting with the casings. Casings are the shit.

Yeah. They can take a while to start actually showing or growing. But there are times when nothing at all shows. I don't know if you would exactly call them contams. But they are. They prevent anything else from growing.

if you have a dry verm barrier remove the foil, it only hinders you.

I thought i had this problem once, i took the cake out after like a week or so... maybe less, I'm really impatient. So i took it out and meant to dump it and restart but, surprise surprise, i forgot and it ended up tossed into a large Tupperware i keep all my supplies in, now almost 2 months later i dug to the bottom of that Tupperware in search of lids and there was a fully colonized cake, smiling up at me.

Yup. NEVER just throw away supposed "stalled" jars. Just keep them somewhere else, and before ytou know it, it will sometimes just take off. Even after a couple months in some cases.

Yea man, fungusman is right again.  Two of my 12 brf jars didn't do shit for 3 weeks, then within 5 days got about 30-40%.  They're just late-bloomers, no big deal.  Timing isn't always gonna be right for you, they do their own thing; this I have learned. :bongload:
