wet straw
    #1197554 - 01/07/03 12:25 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I'm having a problem getting my straw to the correct moisture content before spawning.

During the summer I water pasteurized my straw for 40 minutes in an old pillow case, hung the case on a fence outside overnight to drain, and then spawned the following morning. This worked very well. While draining in the pillowcase the straw remained protected from contams.

When using this method now that winter is here,  the straw remains too wet. The spawn dies and the straw grows cobweb.  :frown:

I'm looking for suggestions on how to properly drain the straw to the correct moisture content without exposing it to contams.

Leave it on a rack over the sink.

You could hang it over your shower curtain rack and let drain into tub!!!

This is all a work of fiction everything I type is fiction. I in no way have made any true statements
this is all a work of my mind
