They will be in jars, so their will be no smell. Howeve If you were to get a contam, and then open it up, you would be able to smell it..

That is possible. It's also possible that one jar could go bad , and take the rest of em with it by the time you get back. (but not likely)
When jars are fresh you can smell the cooked rice. As they start to mature, the better mushroomy smell comes along. Personally, I absolutely love the way finch seed makes the incubator smell.
If you're double careful you shouldn't have to worry as much about contams. Presteralize everything! I pc my jars spoons, measuring cups, everything that I'm going to use. I bake my substrate and mixing bowls too(300 deg/ 20-30min). A flat metal pan can scorch the brf. Better to use pyrex or corningwear.  You can't hurt the verm. This may be overkill but better safe than sorry. Hope that helps:peace:

For dry heat sterilization, 20-30 minutes is not long enough.  Dry heat takes at least three times as long as wet (steam) sterilization because of reduced thermal transfer.  Of course if you are PCing your substrate after baking it, the time baked really doesn't matter.  :smile:
