Yet another cake speed inquiry
    #647063 - 05/27/02 03:05 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I had this idea tonight to try and help my colonizing cakes speed up the process. I was wondering about people's thoughts on the subject. I know it is best to colonize at about 80-85 degree's farenheit.... In the general opinion anyway.... What i am doing is placing my 4 best colonized cakes in an incubator consisting of an old 1 gallon ice cream container with a layer of vermiculite, water, and H2o2 on the bottom (of which all has been sterelized). The jars will be sitting on the layer of verm. directly. The temp of my incubation chamber, however, will not exceed 80 degrees. My basic question is this.... Do you think this setup will help at all with the colonizing process? I mean the humidity will be heightened a tad, but does that matter or not? I also did it this way so i could sit it on top of my water heater to increase temps. It is pretty dusty in the closet my water heater is in, so i thought of the used gallon jug of ice cream to enclose the jars and try and prevent contams.

Any civil comments on this would be appreciated
((posted this again cuz i didnt think it was appearing in the last thread))

humidity is not nessesary for colonization and most likely will result in you growing some contams all over the outsides of the jars. just put the jars in their original box and prop it a couple inches above a heating pad and turn it on LOW. is the outside jar temp will always be a couple degrees lower than the inside, so keep that in mind so you don't cook them

What are you talking about man? All you got to do is put your jars back in the box and put them on a shelf in your closet They colonize perfectly fine at room temp. 2-3 weeks and they will be done. Dont waste your time with all that other mess just to get your jars done a day earlier. Room temp is fine.

If you will it, it is no dream.
