Creating a SEED CULTURE at 7,000' and 25% humidity
When I lived in Seattle, making a Seed Culture was simple and predictable using Reinhart's pineapple juice method.
I now live in Santa Fe (7,000' elevation, though I don't know if that makes any difference to the project at hand), and it's very dry here, especially in winter. Inside my home it rarely gets above 25% humidity, and honestly, I don't know if that matters either.
Anyway, after four days my Seed Culture has not one tiny bubble.
