Inverting Jars- When Should I?
    #605435 - 04/11/02 03:29 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, my jars are apx. 70% colonized. Should I flip the jars or should I wait, and if the latter, how long should I wait?

thanks!

I never flip my jars and they work out fine.

I used to flip them (assuming the bottom is last) when the sides were pretty much finished and all that was left was the bottom. and smack it with my hand to drop it down. if your cakes are really mosit i have found that flipping them isnt that great of an idea, it gets your verm layer soaked and i have seen a few contams this way.....but you could.

When they are about half done, flip em. It drains the co2 out
speeds the finish. It's really hard for contams to start on already
colonized substrate (top).
Or flip half of them and report back what you see.  I fliped
half on two different batches. Now I flip em all.
Hope that helps.

I always flipped mine as soon as I innoculated them.

I wouldn't flip them after just innoculating them.
cause the verm barrier will get wet.
