Where can I find quality spawnbags?
    #11371458 - 11/02/09 08:08 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I ordered about $40 worth of very poor quality spawnbags from a myco vendor. I can't remember who and I didn't keep my receipt so sorry about the lack of warning. (might have been MycoPath) Anyways, the bags ripped in my hands while removing them from the PC after it had cooled down. My fingers just went right into the sides of the bags. Only 2 out of 8 survived. I have never had this happen with other bags. They are clearly skimping on thickness.

Anyone know who has reliable filterpatch bags for sale?

Thanks

Yeah get yourself a Sealer, then buy some bag material and make your own spawn bags.

not what i was looking for. How would you go about attaching a filter patch to a homemade bag anyway?

Sporeworks has some good ones

Just make sure they're not touching the bottom of your PC.  Having one stick, then the smell of burning RGS and coffee taught me that one.

I put 5 jar rings on the bottom to raise the platform up and allow for more water. My presto is 23 qt so there is still space vertically and I wanna find a round cookie rack or something to elevate the bags even further from the bottom to try and reduce breakage.

I am gonna try the sporeworks bags. They say they are thicker than average, so we'll see.

Thanks

No problem, just look at the tek they have on the site, it helps with figuring out the best way to fill them, how much to use, etc.

also line the sides of your PC with foil
this will stop the bags from sticking to the side

Awesome advice, falls under the category of "Duh! Why didn't I think of that?"

you can use a tube and pull the bag thru and stuff with polyfill.  Get turkey bags from the store...    Id also imagine you could stab the bag with a syringe and patch the hole.  Maybe use Silicon and tyvek..:shrug:

here.. look at this thread

Those look like they would work ok, but  think you would have to be very careful when shaking and kneeding to not pop the tops off. Maybe not. I like the comfort of a secure impulse seal and a quality built in filter patch. Everything is sealed together tightly and it's one less thing to have to worry about.

I've used bags from mycosupply and the mad season, and while they look identical, the mad season bags were noticeably thicker. Mycosupply did give me and extra bag, tho, but I think i'd rather have the extra thickness.
