Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. As for as the coffee and gypsum are concerned, I'm assuming you mean to add these while creating the cakes before putting into jars??

I have a few PF-Tek cakes incubating right now in the taller slimmer 1/2 pint jars. I'm wondering how it would be to slice them in half long ways after birthing and before the dunk and roll. This IMO would create more top surface, and just more growing surface in general when placed in FC.

I'm going to slice some and leave some whole to see for myself, but was just wondering if anyone else has tried this and what were your results if so?

Spore Works did me right.
Less than a week delivery.
Nicely packaged with alcohol swabs, needles,microscope slide, and an extra Penis Envy syringe.

Way better that "spores101" by 10 fold.
Don't use "spores101" I have had no luck getting any colonization from there spores and the amount of spores contained in a syringe compared to spore works is laughable. I have read other bad reviews of "spores101" since my purchase. I should have asked the same question before starting in this hobby.

Yeah, I don't blame you for not wanting to play RE5, it's trippy enough. I also have a PS3, but my wife has a wii. I just came across the game and it looked interesting. May buy one day if I ever come across it in stores....

Well no snow here, but I guess I could clear a shelf off in the fridge....
I don't have a PC so if I just leave the lid on my pot tightly closed in the fridge would that be ok?

What is the shortest time from sterilization to inoculation (cool down time)
that you have had success at?

Is 6 hours too short?

They do smell bad :angry:
I'm going to start all over, but I can't think of anything I can do better
So I have a few questions:
Is it ok to store spores in fridge before inoculation?
is spores101 a reliable source for spores?
Honestly those are the only 2 things i can think of that went wrong :huh:
I was sterile as hell

Thanks again for all your help!!! it is much appreciated!!!

"I've seen that happen, if it grows anything on the initial stain throw it away. You should know if its bact. or mold in a day or 2.

PW "

So I should be able to see green mold or Bact. 2 days from inoculation?

I just checked in on them and it seems like the water from the syringe is kinda brown inside on the walls of the jars where i inoculated them. Does this mean contaminant or could it just be a little off colored from verm. and BRF?

I'll try to post pics tomorrow if possible.....

A little more information I forgot. I used Horticultural Vermiculite & BRF for cakes. Steam sterilized in canning pot for 90 minutes. Sprayed tons of Lysol in room, swabbed everything with alcohol. Flame sterilized needle after every jar. Used glove box with A/C off. After jars cooled in pot took straight from pot to glove box (no condensation on jars or foil at all).

« on: April 19, 2009, 05:17:14 PM »
I inoculated my jars almost two weeks ago, B+. The temperature has been from 67-77 degrees F. (I’m going to make an incubation chamber soon to help this) in total darkness. No colonization happing so far. My question is how long before I know if I did something wrong? Is this the sign of contamination?

Thanks for your help in advance!!
