if you dont have any contams yet, such as bacteria, then please do yourself a favor and wait some more. you cant do anything. sometimes the spores are not so strong or not well hydrated in the syringe etc

Its really okay! my first batch, I thought I screwed up completely, I didn't have any growth for 2 weeks, I had a second round of jars already colonizing that I had innoculated a week later. If you don't have any contaminations, you are way ahead of the power curve.

one thing I know I did wrong was not allow any gas exchange in the jars, so I uncovered the holes and they went like mad!

Good luck to you

Well of course i'm going to wate the substrate shows no signs of contams :smile:  But only chance i think i fucked up was maybe baked the substrate to have no water in it :frown:  but i have just the lids and tape on them right now over the lids and the lids are on loosely.  was thinking of ordering some sterile jars from micron magick just to make sure its not my sterilization procedures

smell the holes, if you get a funny smell, like mildew or yeasty smell, your jar is trash. Too much water will make it smell like mildew. If you cant really smell anything, open a jar and smell it, make sure thier's no foul odors, and check the substrate consistancy. chuck the dry verm and wipe the inside of the jar and replace dry verm. you got about 50-50 chance of contams after that, but it's the tester jar, and better see if it colonizes than to chuck it and not try. I recently did this and had contam around the verm/substrate layer, so i openeed it again and cleaned it out, cut out 1/2" of substrate (taperd pint) and replace the verm. didnt get any contams after that, and the jar is doing fine.

Whoooa there cowboy!!! Never ever ever put your nose up to the holes and sniff. Never sniff de jars period. If there ever is a contam in a jar you can usually smell it from a mile away. By sniffing jars you can inhale a concentrated amount of all sorts of nasties that can make you very very very sick. If you absolutely must, waft some air towards you, but never stick your schnaz in and take a big ol' whiff.

well, i didnt mean take a big snort, i meat take a light whiff. using the hand trick usualy doesent work since the holes are so small, and with the verm layer and all. although you should do that when smelling the substrate when you take the lid off

If I were you, maybe increase the temp. 80 degrees seems fine but maybe like 85 would be primo. Seal the lids up after you steam them, you dont want crap getting in after that. Seal up the holes too. Dont go by smell, but experience. If the cakes dont show myc growth then there is probably a problem. For me, my cakes fully colonized and I accidently dunked, drained, left it in the jar for a night, and then dunked again. Before I dunked again I took a smell, and it had a fermented mushroom smell, but that was only stale air and my cakes are fine. Give it time and just see. You still have hope.
