Hi guys wanted to say thanks for everything you guys do youve got me through every step of my pf tek run with very few hiccups. (Couple stalled jars, i believe due to drying out) although no cantaminations.. i even made a few lc's from ms and a brf 2 grain transfer with great success thanks to the detailed teks on here. I have many questions to ask particularly on post birthing/ troubleshooting my sgfc but ill save those until i get my free member status, and i look foreward to finally having some like minded (and much more experienced) people to conversate with and learn from

Welcome Tokr92, you could tape over some of those holes. I now use tubs and aquariums and get my fresh air by fanning. I got plenty of tubs with holes and am never going to make holes in tubs again. Hope to see you around here.

peace

Ill post pics when i get off work i dont have pics on me but on a side note i am having great results with my rye jars all 12 showing good mycelium growth within 4 days from .. thinking ill spawn those to bulk using DOC TS mini MSG mono tek.. i moved the 4 cakes from the sgfc to a moni mono i made and the humidity seems to be doing much better although i havent been fanning i believe the way the tub is set up it still gets a good amount of f.a.e.. ill post pics of the sgfc i took them from and the mono i moved them too tonight

I also took one of the cakes after the dunk.. without rolling and did a double end case with jar lids with holes filled with moist verm, and did a generous later on top as well, curious to see how it performs compared to the ones i rolled and left uncased.

Hi, new here too. What did you do with those that were stalled? Inject water?

I did as you suggested and switched the cakes over to a mini mono i had for when i go bulk has only one layer of 1/4 in. Holes about 3 inches from the bottom and a one inch hole on each side near top, covered by my easy felt tek filter disks.. did the trick began pinning the following day. 4 days later i found this
