How to break up colonized WBS for case?
    #1612831 - 06/05/03 09:42 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

How do you break up a jar of fully-colonized WBS to be used for casing? The teks I've seen imply you use a spoon, but wouldn't that bruise the mycelium? Any suggestions?

Use a sterile spoon.

It won't do any permanent damage.

Just use your hands i think, either wash with antibacterial soap or use gloves... thats what my friend does.

I usually empty the contents of my jars into sterile bags. Seal the bag and crumble by hand. It's less messy, requires less work and greatly reduces your chance of contamination.

Work smarter. Not harder.

LOL That sounded so familiar to me, but I couldn't place the quote. I was still thinking about it over lunch and some friends were talking about the new matrix movie.

It was like a song stuck in my head.

afoaf is about to break up some PF jars and plans on throwing them in freezer ziploc bags, crumbling them, and then covering em with some jiffy.

I just take the jar and smack it against my hand really hard a few times. It will take a couple of straong smacks to get it to start breaking up, but, once you do, then it is relatively easy to shake up the rest. This way you never open the jar until you are ready to case it and plus you don't stick anything in it either and risk contams.
BUT, :lol: if you have alot of jars to do-you will bruise not the WBS, but, your hand. So be carfull if you choose to do it that way.
For 1 or 2 jars I do it that way, but, for alot of jars, I use the ol' trusty "Sterile Spoon" and break it up with it.

Damn I just did it again with these old posts.

Is someone playing with the calendar and the clock?

Sorry again folks.:lol:
