People on here always talk about cultures unexpectantly crashing. How often are people really experiencing this? This past summer I put some cultures by an air conditioner (out of laziness) and they got some mold and were slow producing, but besides that, I really haven't had trouble with any of my cultures just crashing. Just wondering.

Out of the half dozen or so jars I make a week, sometimes one or two hydei cultures will fail to take off. I have never experienced a crash, though I did have mold problems to begin with.

Well when I first started making cultures I had a few develope mold and crap out on me, but I changed the way I make my cultures now using half water and half vinegar, since doing this I have not had a single one crash on me since. Maybe for those that do have a problem should give it a try. Just an idea :lol:

I've never had a culture crash on me, but some of them just suck. I usually make 2 or 3 cultures a week, and every once in a while one of the cultures will have a miserable production. as far as I can tell they are identical to the other cultures, so I don't really know what's going on.

I make about 150 a week and very few fail to take off or "crash" one out of about 20 of the Heidi are either slower or don't take off at all but for some six years never a total failure of an entire feeding program. This probably happens with unclean conditions or poor planning or both.
