Perch,

Is the temp and humidity holding within your parameters? 

Carl

Since I don't have a dedicated incubation chamber (yet) I got a mini space heater, and switched the temp controller from cool to heat, and am using the camber for incubating. Of course this only works once, as I can't incubate a new batch if I already have product in there. Temp is holding between 82 and 87F, and  humidity 75 - 85. Tonight I'll switch back to cooling, and run it at 55F and 70-75 RH. Yes, it's holding temp well. Humidity dips a little low when the freezer runs, but catches up very quickly. I stuck a computer fan pointing up next to the humidifier that runs when the humidifier runs. This drastically reduced lag time.

Last night I was explaining the set up to my wife. She asked if the fridge/ freezer would be an older model or a newer model. I had to fess up that it was going to be "pretty new". Like delivered from Home Depot new. But then I explained how much money we'd save in cured meats! She said something about a boat, and price per pound of fish or something... I don't know, I wasn't really listening...

I'm beginning to realize the 3 weeks is a really long time when you go downstairs and take a peek every 25 minutes...

Having lots of wet meat (yikes!) in the chamber is causing humidity to spike. Going to try narrowing the high/low limits on the thermostat to get the unit to cycle more often. Otherwise I may need to install a light bulb or low wattage ceramic pet heater to trigger more frequent cycling until things dry out a bit.
