Just buy some DampRid or something from walmart, and save $35...OR I would disect that food dehydrator and disable the heating element manualy.

B+ -- any experience with them?
I used syringes.

I have 10 in one chamber now -- about 6 pins emerging!

I dunno about you, but before I noc up my jars, I sterilize the needle with a lighter.  I repeat this again every 2 jars to prevent cross contamination.  I dunno, just something I picked up from another tek.

A couple of quick questions here:

1.  Should I be concerned with condensation build up on the inside walls of my jars?
2.  Is there any special sterilization procedure for fruiting chambers?  Or do they just have to be generaly clean...

I can't believe I haven't had any sign of contaminants yet.  Most of the jars are solid white.  The patterns are actualy very beautiful in a way.  Looking forward to fruiting!
The 2nd round of 10 jars I prepared is coming along much more rapidly than the first.  I used a 1/2 cup more water in that that may be helping accelerate growth.
...more to come...hopefully some pictures

All this goodness has motivated me to do up another 10 jars.
Do any of you know when a good time is to start looking out for contams?
Also...I was unable to obtain tapered 1/2 pint jars -- is this going to cause any major issues when I need to remove the cakes?

10 jars currently PCing happily at 15 psi using the simple mind tek.  We'll see what happens I guess?  I'll keep a log on here in case any problems (and I expect they will) come up.

I've been waiting for my Pressure Cooker off of eBay (should arrive today!) since then I've been storing my syringes in a box in the fruit drawer of my fridge -- is it a good idea to let them reach room temp again before I inoculate (hopefully 2nite!)?
