Should I do it?.......
    #481400 - 12/06/01 12:11 AM (16 years, 6 months ago)

I'm having A LOT of trouble getting these ladies to fully colonize. Would it be OK to take what I have and try to case them? They are still growing (just SOOOO slowly; it's been well over a month), so should I wait or go ahead? Thanks.

Did you try loosening the lids a bit? Is your temp around 85? If not, go ahead and give it a try....If you take the cakes out before full colonization they WILL contaminate!

If you will it, it is no dream.

Of course you can birth them, only if you're gonna case them. I knew this guy who thought he had contamination when the jar was only 50% colonized. He took a sterile knife to cut off the yellow stuff and the uncolonized parts then cased. He saw fruits about two weeks later.
