innoculating wbs jars
« on: June 19, 2004, 05:57:09 PM »

would anyone know how much innoculant a pint jar of wbs would need?  i am using a multispore syringe and this will be my first time using wbs.  i am guessing a pint jar of wbs needs more innoculant than a regular pf jar, and i am also wondering if you would innoculate it the same way as a pf jar, with the spore solution running down the side of the jar.

You use around 1 ml of inoculant with pint jars.
Best way is to make a polyfill lid, and a second small hole to fit the needle, and put tape on it.
After sterilization you pull the tape off partially, inoculate through the hole, and replace the tape. Then you shake the jar to distribute the spores.
