tape or not?
    #836721 - 08/22/02 07:27 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

i was curious to find out your opinions ................since water and air exchange is a big part of mycelium growth. Using brf cakes, how many of you put tape over the holes after innoculation? How many don't? I'm a n00b still , but as soon as my 3 PR syringes get here i'm gonna try it both ways, and try using polyfil on some also to compare ...seems that the tape would prevent air exchange, which would make it take longer for the mycelium to grow. Longer it takes means contaminations have more time to take over. No tape would make the mycelium grow faster but contams could get in through holes?

if you have your lid... the flat piece... placed upside down. there is an exchange in air. we tape the holes 'cause there's more of a chance for things to fall into the jar which will cause yuckies.
taping the hole works.

ongoing deb8 methinks.
I've been using a loose lid with half a ballon streched over top to cover holes and allow inoc. through the ruber.
