Title: Birthing early
Post by: zebdead on March 04, 2013, 01:54:28 AM
So it has been 2 months since inoculation of brf 1 pint jars. This seems like an excessively long time to go without added moisture and whatnot, so I have the idea to take the ones closest(85% or +) and wash the uncolonized myc off and dunk. I've done a little research saying that as long as it's close to fully colonized it shouldn't hurt as long as you remove the uncol. myc. I even have two jars that have pins, but not fully colonized.
My question is do you guys think this would be a mistake and too too big of a gamble? I suppose I could keep patient and wait longer, but the growth has slowed and wait probably put me at 2 1/2 months colonizing before fruiting. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Ive washed off the uncolonized portion of a pftek cake before with no issues, in the future use 1/2pint jars to avoid stalling and if you encounter stalling in the future flip your jars upside down.
