Is there a tek or a good thread on this?
    #1794162 - 08/09/03 12:58 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I want to start by innoculate some pint jars using the popcorn grain spawn tek.  I want to end up with the straw log tek.  Where I'm confused is what I should do in between those two teks to get a bunch of quart jars colonized. 

I was thinking of doing the popcorn spawn tek again with the bigger jars but I dont know if I can do a grain to grain transfer?  I mean once the quart jars are done in the PC and ready to be inoculated, can I simply take the lid off the jars and mix in some of the colonized substrate with my hands?  Does it have to be nice and evenly mixed? I'd wear gloves ofcourse. 

I'm thinking of building a little teepee sort of thing out of bed sheets to minimize air flow so I can try something like this.  I'd spray a ton of that lysol for air born bacteria in the bed sheet "room" and the actual room, spray everthing down with lysol, shut off the AC, not breath, generally try and be as obsessive about being steril as possible. :smile:

Also, I dont want to start with inoculating quart jars with syringes as that would take more syringes than Id be willing to do.

Throw any suggestions or comments my way, I'd really appreciate it.

Peace

The tee pee you are talking about is called a "glove box." Lots of people use them for grain to grain transfers. Except I wouldn't make one out of bedsheats. Look in the faq or do a search to learn how to build one properly.

What's wrong with doing quart jars with syringes? ONE syringe will inoculate about TEN quart jars, which is plenty of spawn for a straw log.

"once the quart jars are done in the PC and ready to be inoculated, can I simply take the lid off the jars and mix in some of the colonized substrate with my hands? Does it have to be nice and evenly mixed?"

So I can do this?

I'm really tired but ill read all the sterilization techniques tommorow.

I'd advise the use of plastic gloves and some alcohol to sanitize them before you do it, but sure.

Yes, you can do this. It is called a grain to grain transfer. Read about it in the faqs and teks. There is lots of information already available. Be fast, and worry about getting it evenly mixed after you re-seal the jars. Just give them a good shake and the grain should break up fine. It would be advisable to do it inside a "glove box" though. There is lots of information available on building one. You just have to look around.
