Advice for stagnant rye jars?
    #858657 - 09/02/02 11:33 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Some of you may recognize this scenario from last week....

My friend's uncle's roommate has quart jars of rye grains, pressure cooked and innoculated according to the FAQ recipe (trust me, by the book!). They have been stored between 80-85 degrees for 11 days now, and show absolutely no signs of growth. There is a little bit of yellowish goo building up around the bottom, and some of the grains are drying out a little.

So at this point, my friend's uncle's roommate wants to know, should he:
Ignore the problem and wait longer?
Re-innoculate with another syringe?
Try colonizing the rye by throwing in a piece of fully colonized BRF cake?
Junk the whole batch and start another?

All advice is appreciated!

Bin them, yellow goo is not good! Espescially when there is no mycelium.

Good luck

Something was not "by the book" if after 11 days, you have not one spec of colonization & yellow goo in the bottom. Wait a few more days - & - if nada happens --  :frown: trash can tek  :frown: could be applied. Start again @ square one. Shit happens -- even to the best of us. SixTango  :tongue:
