Steamer Pot
    #1015981 - 11/02/02 04:03 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

My friend is gonna begin his grow today. Hes gonna use the BRF method but since he returned his PC, he just bought a crab steamer pot to sterilize the jars instead. Its 3 pieces: a large pot, a lid, and a smaller pot that fits into the larger one. The smaller pot has about an inch of holes at the bottom and when inserted into the larger pot, there is about an inch between the bottom of it and the larger pot. My ? is: how high should the water in the pot be??? Also, is there any danger in using tap water when preparing the substrate, or should it be boiled first???

With a steamer you have to keep adding water coz it will run dry. start with a couple of inches and don't let it run dry !!!!!!!

Use ordinary tap water. Boiling water = steam = sterile

But how high should the water be when the jars are in there??? Should it touch the bottom layer or jars??? Also, I meant the water that is added to the substrate... if it is tap water, should it be boiled???

You don't need to boil the water going into the jars. It will be sterelized when you steam the jars.

Well If you think about vegatables for a moment (in a steamer that is) They sit above the wayer level (coz the steam is hotter than boiling water) I would do the same with your jars if theres room. Aslo I would steam for at least 1 hour.

No you don't sterilise the water.

1 more ?: is it ok if I wipe the jars out with alcohol before I put in the substrate, as long as I let them dry???

This is actually his first time growing P. cubensis... the only other types of mushrooms he grew were all the wood-loving type... they're said to be harder, but he has more experience with them...
