I was just wondering if anyone else has ever added water to PF jars, for some reason after about a week and a half things slow down and the water seems to help. I think from now on I might do it on a regular basis. The only downfall I see would be the possible contams. I also thought maybe I dried the substrate out in the canner maybe, even though I follow directions to the T.

i dont see how dunk tek will help the guy, he's talkin about adding water while jars arnt fully colonized.

when i just started at this hobby i used to pull the pressure valuve coz i liked the PSHHHHH sound.
anyway, i discoverd that it dried up the cakes. i then injected water and all was fine.

maybe your cakes are slowing because they dont have enough air or maybe just put a little more water in the 1st place.
never the less, putting water inside while colonazation cant hurt - just keep sterile.

Again, it seems that everyone is getting all hyped up about dunking and using water. You shouldnt have to do anything to get them to colonize.
Although some people dont like to, as soon as they get to the bottom of the jars I flip them. And for ME, the jars finished colonizing in like 2 days, WITHOUT any problems. Adding water seems to me like asking for trouble. Just let them go.
They will finish without that. Dont overkill your poor jars.

oops. sorry, I misunderstood. I agree with turning the cakes upside down. i read somewhere that the CO2 will build up at the bottom of the jar and that will slow down the mycelia. To the guy that likes the pshhhhhh sound, were you using filter disks or were the cakes getting dry through holes in the top?
