Why aren't we all using microwaves?!
    #1421693 - 04/01/03 05:59 PM (18 years, 26 days ago)

Seriously?!

Like WTF?!

Shouldn't it be possible to make up a big ziplock bag of WBS, nuke the shit out of it, and be contam free?
Same thing with casing material???  (60/40 verm/coir)

That would save so much dicking around with the PC and those oven bags.
I'm gonna go do this and let you all know how good micro-waving is for contams. :tongue:

I do believe the subject has already been touched on several times and was found to be a terrible alternative. It could work but I believe you run the risk of lost moisture, burnt substrate, and no pressure sterilization.

I'm just a newbie and my thoughts are inaccurate and not thought out :laugh:

Motherfuck!

That totally didn't work worth shit. I let it cool, and I had a brick. Not very suitable for growing mycelium on...

I will try again with WAY more water (it was still moist when warm, but damn).

I really like this quote. And whats with this dude telling us how to clean our microwaves?

I just put my jars in a normal pot with a lid on it, set the jars on a cloth , which is at the bottem of the pot, and i steam for 1.5 hours.. Let the water come to maximum boil, then drop your temp to about medium temp on most stoves, that will bring it to slow boil, and you just steam them.. works fine for me :smile:

oh btw, if you jars stop growing mycelium on them before they are entirely covered, just birth them, i wasted an entire batch of jars thinking that they would fail. MagicalMushies, told me I shoulda just birthed them ,cakes don't always fully colonize!!!!
