Hi guys, I did a search and read that someone reccomended boiling water, putting it in a jar and keeping it in a drawer with your jars or casings will keep the temperature to an optimun level. Of course you would hve to change it twice a day but ithink its worth it if you have no other means of heating, what do you think??

Sounds like a pain in the ass.

Can you not build a simple incubator? I'm not trying to sound condescending, I'm merely asking. What about one of these:

Its cheap, easy, effective, and fairly easy to conceal.

I cannot as it would be a little revealing for the situation I'm in. Im just trying to find a non revealing method to keep my drawer at the right temp.

Wait, actually one of these would probably do the trick...The link you gave me does not have the pictures though.

If that is too bulky or tall, try building an incubator with an aquarium heater in one of those small Rubbermaid shoeboxes, they are 99 cents at Home Depot.

It does when I hit it, try it again. Oh stonedfish, I don't think the shoe boxes have enough clearance for a fish tank heater.

Not trying to be condesending, but a fish tank heater would be too revealing while taking the time to boil water twice a day wouldn't?

Im incubating my jars at the bottom of my dresser. Its all the jars in the box they came in. With a heating pad on top as a cover. Keeps the temp in a very good range for me and almost done colonizing soon.

Instead of using boiling water, you can microwave wheat or rice grains. They get very hot, and hold heat much longer than boiling water.

Get a cotton sock. Fill the sock half way with dry wheat grain, rice grain or rye grain, then tie a knot in the sock. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Be careful, its really hot! (Some people use this method for creating a heat pad for arthritis and rheumatism)

i have tried using the fish aquarium heater, but blew it due to high temp. evaporating the h2o and it sitting in a dry jar. could have possibly started a fire, so now i prefer to keep them next in the edges of a soft sided waterbed kept at 85 degrees. i know not everyone has a h2obed but for what its worth. usually colonization time of pint jars for ecudors (sp?) & golden teachers averages 2 1/2 weeks. the bed may dry out cakes, but this isn't important since our jars are just for bulk sub. but for pf cakes it may not work so well...
