question: Incubation toowarm 2nd day?
« on: January 25, 2005, 09:34:22 PM »

I just innculated ten jars yesterday and noticed that I could attain the right temperature in my house.  I live in a cold house in Minnesota.  So I built an incubator with an aquarium heater.  I was trying to figure out the right settings on the heater and forgot about it for awhile.  For about four hours my spores were incubating around 94-98 degrees F.  Does anyone know if I am screwed or do I still have a chance?

They should be ok, spores are hardier than mycelium and for mycelium the thermal deaths have been established to be sightly above 100?F.

Set the heater to ~80?F now.
