ok to screw lids loose during incubation?
    #6495575 - 01/25/07 01:27 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

a friend is doing pf-tek and has already removed tape from 5 inocc. points but he said he thought the brf mix was a bit rough and the myc isn't getting enough air. so is screwing the lids loose ok or should the inocc points suffice?

Exposing the 5 holes should be more than enough I myself have the habit of cracking the lids a bit anyway and that certainly wouldn't hurt anything just don't over loosen 1/4-1/2(max) turn is all thats needed.

Hey, I just screwed up a bunch of jars because I let moisture build up in my chamber, therefore bacteria infested nearly my entire batch. The holes in the lid are pretty good. I haven't had any problems with not enough air. If that is a problem tell him to try wild bird seed in the pf jars and also instead of poking five or four holes in the lid poke one big one about half an inch give or take a little and stuff it very snugg with polyfill. You can cook just like pf jar, but instead of innoculating five or four different holes, you only have to do one, and also you can shake the jar after inoculation and it will colonize much faster. I hope this info can help your friend.

I always leave my jar lids slightly loose and have not had problems with moisture content or stalls.

Yes, the "dry" layer gets damp in time.  Its normal for the mycelium to reach up into it.  It won't get very far when it realizes there's  no food there. :smile:  You'll see that there's light, whispy growth throughout the layer when it comes time to birth them.
