Autoclavable Spawnbags and Tape
    #1071744 - 11/20/02 11:47 PM (14 years, 22 days ago)

Ok, i know people put tape over holes on PF Jars before pressure cooking to keep the water out, what i want to know is if anyone has used tape to seal spawnbags before cooking. I'm thinking: fold the top of the bag over once or twice then try and seal all the way across and over the edges using clear packaging tape.

So the big questions are: Will the tape hold through the cooking, will it provide a good seal, and does this halo make my ass look big?

I think standard practice is to seal the bag after sterilisation, but I'm not sure why. You should be able to seal the bag by putting it under a single sheet of paper and ironing it with a hot iron. Good luck!

I think that some seal the bags after sterilization so that the bags won't burst from the increased temperatures. However, the bags in question have filter patches (sorry i didn't specify that) which I believe would allow them to be sealed prior to cooking (please correct me if I'm mistaken here).

As for tape working as a contamination barrier, it works alright at the injection site for a spore syringe. More input on this would be greatly appreciated!

Sealing with an iron has been tried with unsatisfactory results; unable to get the iron to the correct temperature. Too cold to seal the bag, or too hot and melts the bag, unfortuanatly creating holes and making an ugly mess of the top of the bag.
