PF - Tek / Stalling
« on: November 02, 2008, 07:33:36 PM »
I did put the rubber side down (against glass), but I left the four inoculation holes open.

I know folks have issues with cakes stalling as they approach full colonization, it may be worth noting that these are nowhere near completion. 

It took a long time (8 days) to show any signs of life at all, and even now (2-3 weeks later) the spots of mycelium are (at best) dime to nickel sized.

(Temp maintained at 80 deg.)

PF - Tek / Dried out cakes?
« on: November 02, 2008, 06:48:42 PM »
Just got a pressure cooker, but before I did, I tried a batch of PF cakes steamed in a pot.  Inoculations seem to have been fine, no contams, but progress seems to be stalling.  The jars look very dry and I wonder if I didn't cook out too much moisture during sterilization.   

Is this a possibility?

Should I inject a bit of water?
