urgent query: should i even waste spawn on this?
    #1733572 - 07/21/03 12:40 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

tonight was a poo adventure fraught with difficulties... i made up a pillowcase full of 50/50 chopped straw and cow manure (from the garden store). the first problem came when i cut open the bag of cow manure. while working with it, there was a pretty distinct ammonia smell. i've heard that this is not a good thing with mushrooms. before i pasteurized the mix, i tried to leech it out a little by soaking the stuffed pillowcase in water and draining a dew times. when i was done pasteurizing it though, the ammonia smell was still kindof there. maybe it'll be gone in the morning...

the other problem was that because i was using a hardcore industrial strength propane burner, the bottom of the pillow case, right above one of the burners, got a 3 inch hole burned through it. the substrate didn't look real damaged though. from checking with a thermometer though, the water temp never got above 180. is it ok if small amounts of the substrate are sterilized instead of pastuerized?...

i was gonna spawn this out tommorow, but now i'm having second thoughts. i don't want to waste any of my limited spawn.

should i start over or is this stuff probably ok?
