Sodium bicarbonate
    #11264972 - 10/17/09 01:05 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

i hear allot about buffers like lime (Sodium carbonate0 but what about baking soda (Sodium bicarbonate)

NaHCO3 = sodium bicarbonate = baking soda
Na2CO3 = sodium carbonate = baking powder


Sodium bicarbonate decomposes at a low temperature to make sodium carbonate, carbon dioxide and water vapor
2NaHCO3(s) --heat--> Na2CO3(s) + CO2(g) + H2O(g)

the PH is 7ish..

anyone??

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Sodium bicarbonate is a salt.

Salt is toxic to fungi.

Sodium bicarbonate decomposes at a low temperature to make sodium carbonate, carbon dioxide and water vapor

so it would be OK if you put it in before pasteurizing right?

Above 70 °C, sodium bicarbonate gradually decomposes into sodium carbonate, water and carbon dioxide. The conversion is fast at 250 °C

Excess sodium is toxic to fungi.

You want to use calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide (hydrated lime) to adjust ph.

Sodium bicarbonate will kill your mycelium. Try it on a test batch.
