Oh shit.... fire in the inoculation room. Burning alcohol
    #1775862 - 08/03/03 05:26 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

So here I am, sitting in my kitchen, tons of jars on the oven and multiple oyster syringes ready to inoculate.. I get aprox. 5 jars done, and I tip over my bowl of burning alcohol and now I have a 4'x3' flame from my kitchen floor to the counter tops...

Not to mention the exposed syringe in my hand and 1 jar opened on the oven, so I rush across the room to get a towel, put the fire out asap and get another flame going... flame steralize the needle, dunk it in more alcohol, then inoculate.


What do you think the chances are that the quick movements I made to run across the room could of pushed some contam's via air movement into my jar? I think that would be the only risk factor here because I had one jar's inoculation hole exposed and the syringe but I flamed the syringe killing all problems there.


Anyhow, the process went down nicely and after the whole thing i wiped my incubator down with some bleach wipes. whallah

though I'm not really into the psilocybe containing strains, don't even smoke pot just love mycology.

if you were using the oven tek, the warm air rising wouldnt have been affected that much by your rapid movments across the room. although the giant flame probably made a lot more air move than you did running across the room.
if i had to say one way or the other, id say tyoure fine

now I always thought that considering the fact that one cooks a lot of food in an oven and in most cases lots of food is deposited all over the oven racks and inside walls...

but considering that it's usually cooked at 350+ daily, all the shit inside is simply steralized food matter.

my stove was nasty as all hell i had to break out the heavy duty industrial steel cleaners/
