I was just wondering if I could inoculate my jars outside to cut down on the risks of contams.Would this work if I just steralize my needle?Please help!

I recommend using the oven techniquie.  The theory being that doing it on an open oven thats heated will keep the air flowing UP and away from your shroomy spores :smile:  If you are really down for it, an innoculation hood is the way to do it.  I've yet to try a homemade one, but I'd assume you'd drastically cut down on the number of infections you'd get if you did the innoc in a "sterile" environment.

there is all sorts of pollen and junk floating in the air outside and inside your house. use the oven tek like johnny explained to create a hot air draft that will destroy most of the badies floating around.

Oven tek is virtually useless IMO.

Make a very simple glove box. Sterilize with lysol, bleach, etc.

Unless you are doing grain to grain transfers,innoculating from a print,or a using an agar wedge,there's no reason to be sterile when you innoculate IMO. Just sterilize your jars and innoculate with syringe.

Yeah,people go overboard on sterility sometimes,if you are newbie I'd say better safe than sorry,but I see no reason to make a glovebox just to knock up some jars.

You really can't sterilize a room :smile:  Anything you can think of to minimize exposure to air currents or particles dropping down will help.  Glove box, can't go wrong with.  40$ and some ingenuity at Wal-Mart  / Lowes wil lget ya one :smile:

agreed, a glovebox is simple to make and will be a huge advantage over inoculating outdoors.
