Shakin Rye Jars
« on: April 10, 2008, 01:21:37 PM »

its day 8 and i have shaken my jars 5-6 times.  i have about 60% fuzz in the jar (looks Beautiful) 
my Questions:  do i need to wait until 100% of rye is fuzzy? Should i stop shaking my Rye jars for the last few days of incubation?
Also----U know how you see a jar & its all super fuzzed out, then, you shake the jar up and the fuzz "disappears" inside the jar and you see either moldy super chunks of rye or the grains that have yet to be inoculated.......that what i got in my lab, that why im asking these questions, to see how far along i am and how much longer to wait...patience is hard after 8 days!
Thanks :ph34r:

You shouldn't shake them so many times.
You should shake them first immediately after inoculation, then when you see app. 10% of the jar colonized, and then perhaps one last time when 50% of the jar is colonized.
