might actually be a good idea... if after a week itz not infected, itz totally sterile... wont waste spores/mycelia on it! th@ is, if your jars are completely covered til you innoc... hope all goes well!

might not be too good of an idea becuase you are giving contaminents time to propagate without growing the mycelium. Many times jars that produce shrooms and are successful are not fully sterilized they just manage to fight off any possible infections by colonizing the jar first. You should innoculate the jars as soon as possible after sterilization

Yep Lenor is right, however if you just have to wait to inoculate then add 1/4 teaspoon of powdered gympsum (calcium sulfate)per 1/2 pint jar to the substrate after you cook it but before you sterilize it. This is actually a good idea to do even if you plan to inoculate right after the substrate cools. It will give your mycelium field advantage over any contams that might be present. Good Luck.
