I prepared 4 birdseed jars, 2 are covered with the polyfill lid like outlined in the Polyfill for Dummies tek, and 2 are covered with squares of Tyvek TM hold down by the rim of the lid.
I´m going to inoculate them with Ecuador rye grain spawn tomorow, incubate at 29°C and report on the progress in the following days.


After 2 days fresh growth is noticable both in polyfill filter jars and
in Tyvek filter jars. I couldn´t tell if the growth is faster in any of them.
The jars will be shaken today
to distribute the newly colonized kernels and put back into the incubator.

I prepared 4 birdseed jars, 2 are covered with the polyfill lid like outlined in the [[English/Polyfil|+]], and 2 are covered with squares of Tyvek'^TM^' hold down by the rim of the lid. The variety of Tyvek was the thin Tyvek used in construction, "Tyvek house wrap".

I inoculated them with Ecuador rye grain spawn and  incubate at 29°C.

After 2 days fresh growth was  noticable both
in polyfill filter jars and in Tyvek filter jars. I couldn't tell if the growth is faster in any of them.
The jars were shaken

If you look carefully you will notice, that the upper layer of the Tyvek filter jars has uncolonized, dry kernels on the top of the jar during the excessive gas exchange through the filter.

To counteract this one should make the hole in the lid smaller and thus only partially expose the filter surface.

No contamination problems were observed in jars with either kinds of filters.
