Does h2o2 hurt mycelium?
    #1409931 - 03/25/03 09:59 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

all right, i just had an idea, and am wondering if it'd work or not (or if it's just plain stupid)

now, when one creates a bunch of grain jars, one (or more) of the jars can then be used to spawn (i think that's the correct term) more grain jars, right?

the only real problem is sterility. not just as simple as injecting into a little hole, the lid of the pressure cooked jars must be opened in order to add colonized grain, which allows for contaminations.

so i got to thinking, what if, after the jars had been pressure cooked, and right before adding the mycelium, a small amount of h2o2 were to be added to the jars, and shaken around and whatnot. then, any airborn spores would be killed, but from what i think i've heard, the mycelium would be unaffected. a quick shaking once the jars have been spawned to, and the h2o2 coats the grain and kills any nasties.

is this idea plausible or am i nuts?

You're not the first person to think of this idea!
This is pretty common actually.
