Casing/Cake Question
    #1474496 - 04/19/03 11:29 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hey guys, another quick question, in the 50/50+ tek, it does not say anything about steralizing the verm in a pressure cooker, so I was not going to worry about that.  It does say to steralize the substrate though, so I was going to use the spawn bags from mycosupply and pressure cook it in that, good idea?  Also, where would I find a good tek on making wbs cakes as opposed to brf cakes?  Do I just substitute the wbs for the brf?  And last question(sorry)does any one know where a good place to find these products online is: hydrated lime and good (not $9/jar) wide mouth canning jars?  Thanks in advance! :laugh:

Lowes stocks hydrated lime. You don't need to steralize the verm, because it's a mineral, not an organic substance. If you're worried, you can stick it in the oven at 300 for 1/2 hour

You can, and in my opinion should, sterilize your casing mix. You can hydrate it with 3% peroxide, .5% bleach, boil it, or PC it. Just make sure and keep that pH up and don't let spores drop on it when it starts to fruits. Harvest before the veil breaks. Spores dropping all over the surface can and will lead to contams.

Yes, but handling bags can bruise mycelium. Jars are better, IMO, for several reasons, but bags seem to get the job done, too.

Also, where would I find a good tek on making wbs cakes as opposed to brf cakes?  Do I just substitute the wbs for the brf?




Its pretty simple. Soak in h2o for 24-36 hours, fill jars, PC at 15#, 250 F for 60 - 90 minutes, cool for 8 hours, inoc. My friend takes out the metal discs with the rubber seal and just screws the lids down over tyvek.

Ebay is a good place to look :smile:
