Do I need to bake Jiffy Mix before using?
    #1056310 - 11/15/02 05:59 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I want to do a casing, my first, with Jiffy Mix i bought today, but wasn't sure if I should sterlize it first. I don't have a PC, so can I bake it for that purpose?

Yes, add enough water to it and bake it in a foil covered pan with a meat thermometer in the middle of your casing, once it reaches 160 degrees, cook it for 45 min and let it cool in the oven (will take longer than you think, you may want to let it cool overnight.

Skikid16, that's pasturization man, but yeah, that'll work for jiffy.

rumor has it that the 10 min microwave pasteurization works like a charm with Jiffy mix. The gnomes I have locked in my closet have had great success with that. ;P

Thanks...can you use something other that those autoclavable bags for microwaving the Jiffy mix in?

I use the high setting and I have a 1000 W microwave. If your microwave it not as powerful then I would suggest extending the time a little bit. Perhaps a min or two. Don't forget to keep it covered after you get it out of the microwave, because you are going to have to let it cool for a while. Make sure that it is a bit cooler than body temp ( around 80 degrees or less is good...you can always use a fever thermometer for this) before you apply the casing layer so that you don't kill the mycelium.
later

When using Jiffy Mix do you typically put it on the casing and then give it a good misting, or do you wet it before hand? Sorry for the simple ?, I've had shitty luck getting a good casing layer up to this point.
