Autoclavable bags in a PC STACKED??
    #1287720 - 02/07/03 07:33 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with bags in a PC.

I ordered some bags from unicornbags.com yesterday and I am thinking about exactly is going to happen in the PC...

The bags are 3 inches by 4 inches and are 9 inches tall. And they are shaped like the old brown paper bags you used to take iunch to school in, so they will stand up on thier own.

The main thing I am concerned with is stacking them in the pressure cooker. What exactly happens when the heat is turned up? Do the bags blow up like balloons? Or do they just stay flat? If I can stack them then I can double my production.

I've included some pictures to help out maybe.





TIA

-A

It depends on the PC, the size of PC, the bag size & whats in them.

I fill 4 liter Unicorn bags 3/4 full ofsoaked WBS, fold tops & fill a AA 941 full with them, then PC 5 full hours.

The more mass you place in a PC, the longer it takes to sterilize the content.

Like cooking a 2.5 lb chicken, verses cooking a 25 lb turkey. No brainer, it takes longer, because the turkey 10X the mass of the chicken.

Same goes for mass in autoclave bags.

Thanks for the link.... that thread opened my eyes some.

If anyone is interested the bags are 3 x 4 x 9 (w X l X h) or about 1 liter
the PC is a AA 930. I am thinking about 17 bags per cook.

I am hoping to use them simply as a replacement for jars.

After reading Una's thread I think they best way to go about doing this is:
-not sealing them (because I want to innoculate with grain)
-filling with a standard grain/water ratio
-cooking for 1.5 - 2 hours @ 15psi
-letting the bags cool in the laboratory
-innoculating them with fully run grain (from jars)
-impluse sealing them and letting them incubate in semi-setrile conditions

Does anyone know if these bags re-usable?

Thanks

Kinda lit, so -- if this is gibberish............BITE ME.

Long time ago I ordered a several "K" of big ass bags from UNICORN BAG, without filters, by mistake. They were like $120 a "K".

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Mistake or not.............NOPE

How.......I use then...........is by applying a filter.

How I do that is:

I use them for G2G transfers.

I bought several feet (meters) of 2 inch bore automotive radiator hose (cheap @ auto parts place), cut the hose in 2.5 inch lenghts, used tyvek at a filter, used screw tight metal automotive radiator hose clamps, to seal them. Works like it was made for it.

Can't beat the bags & WBS, for bulk spawn, if ya have a big ass AA PC.
