Made up 7qt jars of WBS, last night. But now that I pull them out of the PC and shake them, I notice there's a bit of extra moisture. Is there anything I can do to save these? Can I just not use them for a few days and maybe some of that will evaporate off?

I've used over hydrated WBS with lots of burst kernels with minimal success my first bulk run. Are there a lot of burst kernels in your jars? If not, a little condensation is ok. Post some pics and what WBS prep tek did you use?

No burst kernels, I used Cue tek. Just a bit more moisture on the bottom than I'm used to.

I don't see all that much condensation there. Might be my computer.

But I'd go with that

It looks a tad wet but not enough that its likely to fail. It might colonize a little bit slower but nothing major. Carry on lol

They actually look perfect for wbs. Too dry and they will stall.

Yours look a tad wet. Beware bacteria. Hopefully the pc was enough to kill Bacillus.

 The only issue with wet grains is they can become too tacky to shake up which will slow the rate of colonization.

. . . And they have anaerobic areas that favor bacteria. 

 

Those two factors often result in failure.

Well all I can do is wait and keep my fingers crossed! Sterile procedure was on point this time around and all the jars got 90 minutes @ 15 PSI
