Jars gone to shit
    #4727129 - 09/28/05 09:29 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hello, from the 10 jars I inoculated 7 bgan showing signs of myc growth. The current state is one completed (dont know for how long can I keep it that way since the other ones are advancing slowly), and two more that are almost completely colonized. The other 5 have apparently stopped their growth and are getting a more solid consistency and have lost the bright white color for a brown/orange with white. What the fuck is wrong with them? Can I (still) do something for them or just discard them?

I suppose that with 3 500 cc jars I can make 2 casings alright. But I would like to rescue my other children if possible. If not, can I recycle the jars?

Too many and dispersed questions, please focus and try to answer all... bye...

Hmmm, with time I oculd do this but now the kids are resting at a friends house who's camera has very bad resolution. I can tell you though, that the mass of what used to be healthy myc suddenly caught a consistency like clay or smething (you know, from the outside is difficult to give precise descriptions). The color all around them has changed to a dark orange, in one who was especially larger you can see some spots even. Strange shit. I dont know if I'll be able to take pictures for you. I hope there's some wise mycophile out there who can help me up.

Get some wheat or rye grain. Prep it - PC it. Take one of your cakes into a ziplock bag and crumble it - then inocculate the grain jars with your cake crumbles.

I usally use two table spoons of spawn per jar (qt).

Check out the Grain FAQ

Oh yeah, you can reuse the old jars if you wanted to do cakes again.

the substrate is already rye grain... wouldn't it be difficult to open the jar after PC and put a piece of myc'ed rye into the other rye without getting contams (dont have a glovebox). what other solutions for expanding or taking advantage of only 3 jars can you give me?
