Time between Sterilization and Innoculation?
    #939139 - 10/07/02 10:22 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I wanted to get started mixing the substates and sterilizing them before my spores show up. They should be here today. I was wondering if I sterilized em now would they be ok for a few days or would I risk contam. If they do show today how long will the jars take to cool completely? Oh yeah, one more ? Do I put tape over the holes in the lid after innoc. Sorry for the newbie ?'s but they aren't mentioned in the guide, left for me to figure out! Thanks of much

Happy Trails,
sAn trOpEz

not a prob to let them sit for a while. Dude had some jars sit for 5 weeks before inoculating them and none had any problems.

Wait until room temp .........could take up to six hours cooling for this .Ego personally would use then with in 24 hours of making , leaving them lying around is trouble waiting , IMHO .
Wait for the spores ..........mail service is not pure science , if you know what I mmean ?
Ego used autoclave , so used breathable tape , put on before sterilizing , left on till ready to innoc .
Good Luck :cool:

I agree with Trip. The sooner they are used, the better. The longer they sit, the better odds for a nasty to develope. Even though, once I waited a week to innoc, because I had to leave town. They turned out Okay.

Look at it like this. You build a building . You don't put on any waterproof siding. Thinking, it is sunny & no rain in sight. I can wait.

Odds are you will be okay for a short time & it will not rain. The longer the time, the higher the odds, it will rain.

Shit happens.

A quick innoc after the jars are cooled to room temp has a profilacitic (SP) effect. At least INHO.

Good over-all advice. Mickey and I both responded to a post asking something similar and my thought was to use them right way as well. Mickey made a good point when he said that it might not be a bad idea to wait a couple of days before you inoculate to see if any contams develop, especially if this is a person's first time making PC'in substrate. No point in wasting good spore solution on a batch of water logged, or contaminated jars.  :smile:

can someone elaborate on the tape? Masking, scotch, duct. I put it over the holes before sterilization? Then I remove it for innoc? Then after the innoc? Is the tape necessary or will it be too airtight, as I've heard this debated as when discussing the lids and stuff. I got my spores! I'm gonna start now!!!!!!!!

Peace and Happy Trails,
san

Cover jars with tin foil when sterilizing in PC, no need for tape. You want your jars to be able to release pressure in case you didn't already know that. After inoculation you can use the tape to cover the holes in the lid.
