a few straw log questions
    #11165443 - 10/01/09 08:10 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

so i'm looking to do some straw log again and i have a few questions.

first is, i previously used clear kitchen bags and taped a long seam to make it 8"-10" or so wide and i would like to use poly tubing like in the teks. however all i can seem to find are rolls in the 2000' range. where can i get poly tubing in shorter rolls? also what thickness would you recommend 1.5 - 2 - 3 mil. ?

second is, i was re-reading sky pilot's (RR's) tek and i noticed that after pasteurizing everything is done on the kitchen floor with bare hands. while i am certain RR's kitchen is probably cleaner than my GB, lol  but either way is this ok or was it just done like that for the pics?

I bought 4 mil as per RR's suggestion (tear resistant to getting stuffed). I found smaller lengths of poly tubing on ebay (I bought a 500' roll for like $40)and mycosupply has them in 20 & 100 foot lengths. I have always just done my pasteurized stuff in open air, bare handed, just like the vid.. no issues. Good Luck!
