I noc'd some bags of corn and made a little much. Any idea how long it is good for? I broke it up to recolonize and haven't had any pins yet.

That thing will last as however long it takes to go bad! Assuming it is good however.

Colonized corn should be stored in the fridge if you don't plan to use it within the next couple weeks.

 

I've had jars sit here on room temp for 5-6 months and the cultures lost alot of vigor.

Fruiting took over a month and the pinset was a little less exciting.

Fruits still grew big and mature tho.

 

You might even get good results after a few months on room temp but if you plan to clone from that culture then you should definately cool it directly if you know its not gonna be used soon.

The cooling slows down "aging" of the culture which is a good thing when you plan to keep using this culture

Typically 2-3 weeks after full colonization grains will start to pin but it depends on the strain and/or genetics.

 

I have some that pin invitro really fast and some that seem to never want to pin invitro and just dry out.

Would it be safe to assume that putting it in the fridge will slow the mycelia activity and prolong it's life?

Not an assumption, thats how it is.

Same principle as storing cultures on plates, they are refrigerated to slow the mycelium down

Just throw any extra into the fridge and they will last for months
