(Pic taken right before we started pressure cooking.)
So, got my jars all set, inoculated 6 with Golden Teacher and the other 6 with Ecuador. Now, I've got them incubating.
I have a question though... Everything I've seen says to incubate at 80-85 degrees, the spot I have them in is a steady, constant 79. Is that good enough? I didn't think one degree would make a lot of difference but, I had to ask to see what you guys thought, just to be sure.
I could probably make up the difference but, it would take some screwing around to get it dialed in. The setup I have now is keeping that 79 locked.
Also have another question. Both syringes I have had a little black blob floating in them when I pulled them out to do my inoculations. It ended up squirting out between a couple jars each. Is this a bad thing? Not really matter? It seemed rather strange to me. I hope it doesn't mean they were bad or something.
I hope things will turn out alright with this batch, being my first run and all, looking forward to trying out some micro-dosing. I wouldn't mind a nice trip either, if I'm being honest...
