Help needed! with temperature for pinning
« on: September 17, 2011, 05:54:11 AM »

I know it says in the guide that for pinning the jars should be kept at room temp of 21c but my room only sits at around 16c. I was wondering what difference this would make to the pinning and also if the 21c includes the heat that is emitted from the mycelium?

If my room is too cold then should i maybe use the incubator at a reduced temp to get the 21c?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Yes more heat is needed!

The 21 is absolute so it includes the growth heat. Say your room is @ 18 and inside the incubator is 21, thats fine!
