How many times do you guys shake your grain jars while colonizing? Just once?, a couple times? Gave them all a shake a few days ago which seemed to of sped things up quite a bit.

I'm pretty new so take my advice lightly, but I shake mine as soon as I take them out of the PC. I shake them again immediately after inoculation. Then I usually shake them when I have dime size growths (24-48 hours after noc), and then again once they recover from the last shake (2-3 days later depending) and then they are usually fully colonized after the next recovery period so I shake them again right before use.

I don't know if this is the best way to do it.. but my G2G jars (one heaping spoonful of colonized grain per quart jar) have been colonizing in 7 days or less.

Shake it like it won't stop crying!

Just kidding. I don't shake at all. Cause I'm that lazy.

30 percent is good for the first shake. (Roughly). A second anytime you want after seeing good recovery.

More than three shakes is masturbation ;)

But seriously, once around 25% - 30% to redistribute the myc seems to speed things up and again when it looks pretty much done so as to check for fast recovery which gives some confidence there's no bacterial infection hiding out.
