Inoculating with Mycelium?
« on: July 18, 2007, 01:52:50 PM »

I have some BRF jars that are about 80% colonized with mycelium. I also have 4 BRF jars that are fully sterilized and have not been inoculated. I wanted to know if I could maybe break up one of the cakes once it is fully colonized and somehow put the mycelium in the 4 jars that are sterile and ready.  How much mycelim should I put in the other jars and how whould I do it so I don't contaminate them. I can't use a syringe because the BRF/verm/mycelium mix would be to thick to suck up right? Any help would be awesome. Thanks

If your sterilized jars have a dry verm layer on them, I highly doubt you can do a g2g.
That opens up your jars to contam.
But it may be possible if done in a glovebox.
Sterility is the biggest factor so you may lose the time invested.

I would just knock up the other jars with a syringe.

Hey man, a couple weeks ago I was wondering the same thing so heres what I did.  I took a spoon and took a spoonfull out of 2 corners in each steralized jar and filled them with a spoonful of colonized brf n verm and packed it in a little bit and its colonizing the other jars fast and contam free.
