TOO HOT!!!!
    #509932 - 01/04/02 10:27 AM (15 years, 10 months ago)

I just innoculated my jars yesterday, put them in a box with a thermometer and threw them on top the radiator.

I was meaning to check the temp. in an hour, make sure it wasn't too hot, but I fell asleep. When I woke up ~9 hours later, I checked the thermometer and it read 108! Needless to say I immediately relocated my jars.

Did I F*CK UP? Will the jars still be viable? Would re-innoculating them be a good idea to make sure they spawn?

I'd wait a few days and see what happens. It may not have gotten quite that hot inside the jars and the spores are quite hardy.

Sorry to say this, but you may have caused irreparable damage. I've read 102 is the point where mycelium begins to die. Like Max says though, you might as well wait a few days just to see. Probably everyone has cooked a batch at one time or another, I know I have. Learning is a good thing.

Mycellium starts to dies at 108 deg .But If there wasent any yet to begin with you shouldent have a problem . Foaf had 10 jars freshly inculated sitting in the incubator for 7 days at temps between 105-110 . He took them out and left them at room temp,, about 9 days later or so it started to grow,, havent had any problems since. It just took a while to get started little over two weeks before the first spots showed . Just wait it out , at room temp .
