Is this ok for an incubator??
    #592161 - 03/28/02 08:31 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I think i have an ok setup for an incubator. I have only 3 jars going right now but this setup can do 6-12 jars if properly aranged. So i set a rubermaid 18qt tub on a heating pad at high heat. A towl is placed between the tub and heating pad 2 jars are set upside down in the bottom and a cd case lays folded out on top of the 2 jars. I then lay a tshirt in between the cd case and the colonizing jars. This way the warm chamber is heating the jars, not the direct heat of the heating pad. The temperature ranges 78-82 when the thermomiter is placed near the jars. Is this an ok setup for a heating pad?

You may want to discontinue the heating pad and just place the container next to the hot water heater or somewhere else warm. Also the container your jars are in is clear. When jars are incubating they need to be in a dark place. You dont want premature pinning. So put a cover over your container to block out light.:)bluhoney
