Dealing with over-humidification
    #583391 - 03/19/02 03:24 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I think that I've manged to pretty seriously over-humidfy several pans of colonized rye substrate. What is the best path to remedy this? I was thinking about starting over casing them, crumbling them into new pans.

Does that make sense?

Are there better paths to take?

Thanks
-Asher

What are you talkinmg about. is the spawn too wet? is the case too wet? was the rye too wet (obviously if it colonized it was fine)
explain your problem and you might get some help :P

Apologies for not clarifying.

The substrate is probably a bit wet to begin with, but ok as it colonized.

What I'm referring to is what, as far as I can tell, matches the symptoms described in other posts for over-humidification of the cakes. The primary symptom being that they aren't forming pin-heads at all. From previous experience (Which is limited) it seems as if the symptoms could be the same as under-humidifying (in terms of the mycelium bulking up) but the bulk-up is more limited, here. The humidifier is pretty powerful and it's been on full, so it doesn't seem like the problem is under-humidifying, although I've just gotten a new hygrometer to make sure. The cakes look wet.

Does that give any more information that's useful?
