PE strain Rye Berry jars advice

Recommended Posts


First inoculated about 60 days ago. Sat at temps around 82-84 degrees. Never shook them. Looks like the bottoms are slow to cover. I’ve heard PE are slow to colonize. Wasn’t expecting to get this far. So....should I wait for the bottoms to cover or are they ready? The middle looks thick and covered. Sorry my camera sucks! I have 3 jars like this. Since PE is a moisture lover should I dunk them after I birth them?

      Oh I apologize I was confused as to which thread I was commenting in. My last reply was about actual fruiting chambers and conditions. You are incubating. You need to maintain 77-80* air temperatures during incubation but do not sit your bags directly on a heating source.

      Makes sense. So do you recommend that I put the tote away from the heater so it falls back to room temperature? I know contams are higher risk at higher temps but I also read it promotes healthier mycelium and faster colonization times. I thought I'd give it a shot since my other bags failed on the shelf

      That is due to a phenomenon known as dew point. The air in the fruiting chamber is much warmer than the plastic of it. This causes the moisture in the air to condense on the walls. Like brining a cold can of soda outside during the summer. the goal is to cool the air in the fc to about that of the plastic. 68-72 degrees.  Condensate almost always indicates temps too high
