First Grow attempt - Need input
    #8814704 - 08/23/08 08:28 AM (10 years, 3 months ago)

Well I went ahead and used Doc's WBS tek, but forgot to add coffee and gypsum. Its not listed there, but someone mentioned it would be a worthy addition to the process.

I followed it pretty much word for word, omitting the tyvek layer because I couldnt get some in time to inoculate. Cleaned the seeds. Let the seeds soak. Simmered the seeds. Drained the seeds, but I feel like they may be a bit too moist. Are you supposed to see small amounts of water pressed up between where the grain contacts the glass?

Cleaned out my bathroom, repeatedly sprayed lysol in there all day. Before I inoculated I thoroughly nuked the room and let it sit for 10 minutes.  I used a syringe with  the Golden Teacher strain.

Its been 2 days since inoculation and no signs of growth (obviously). Im incubating them in the partitioned box the jars came in, wrapped in a opaque trash bag (sprayed the insides of the bag liberally with lysol). I wrapped this bag in a shirt, then a sweater, and put it all above and behind my fridge, where temps seemed to be highest.

Im a poor college student so this is the best I could come up with. What do you guys think? Destined for failure or success?

How long should GT colonization last? Ive done searches and come up between 3 days and 3 weeks :frown:

Ill post pictures of my jars after about 5 days, still too paranoid about contaminants to get them over to the computer.

The coffee and gypsum aren't necessary - the coffee is supposed to speed up colonization and the gypsum keeps the grains separated.

If you aren't using tyvek, what are you using as a filter?

Using Polyfill over my one inoc hole and 3 layers of foil over pretty much the entire top half of the jar.
