Drying spawn prior to use
    #1100010 - 12/01/02 03:08 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

ok, i'm am lazy and want to use the blender to chop up my pf cakes for spawning. i've been using a cheese grater but it's a pain in the ass. i tried the blender before it gave me putty blobs. I was thinking i could dry out the cakes for a day and then blenderize them to get a better powderish inoculate. would drying them for a day do a lot of damage to the myc?

cheers

I don't think it would damage it all that much.  Are you really that lazy that a cheese grater is too much? :smirk:  If its that bad, you may want to try birdseed or rye.

yes

uhh, i should explain. i live in a foreign country where it's hard to find the things i need. the only cheese grater thing i could find has about 2 cm of grating surface length, where one back in the states has about 20 cm of surface length. so it takes about 10 times the effort for each cake=pain in the ass

Damn, that sucks.  Hell if you want to pay the shipping, I'll send you a nice cheese grater with a big surface.  :wink:

that's nice of you, but i'd rather improvise with what's available...makes me feel more resourceful. i think powdered myc would give you more inoc points than grains. but of course i'm just talking smack on grains cuz i don't have a pc and can't do them. hmm, maybe i'll try grains anyway using fractional sterilization(aka tyndallization), maybe sterilize a second time 48 hours later. anyway, thanks again
