Cold shocking mycobags, and a few other questions
    #1868456 - 08/31/03 03:40 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

--Before I case my 4 mycobags, should I put them in the fridge overnight?

--Can I spray my latex gloves w/ Lysol before handling mycellium? I heard Lysol kills it.

--Should I leave one mycobag and just case the other three in case I fuck it up? I at least want to have some portabello mushrooms at the end of all of this.

--I have a pretty big tupperware bin, and only 4 mycobags (3 if I leave one out). Can I spread it around such a big tub without any problems?

--For 100% colonization, I have to be able to NOT see any grain or substrate in my bag, correct? Just pure white? I'd say it's about 80% covered right now. No contams.

Thanks!

1.)Usually no need. Which strain? Some do need cold shocking.
2.)Dunno about Lysol. Take hydrogen-peroxide at a 3% solution. That decontams nicely.
3.)You won^t fuck up all of them I reckon. But if you want to go ahead.. I wouldnt though!
4.)"pritty big , is pitty vage! You want at least 2.5 centimeters of mycelium hight.
5.)yes

hope I helped!

It's B+. Thanks for the help. I read the FAQ but the questions weren't answered in there, which is why I'm asking here. I'm a noob, and just want to get everything right so I can get in the habit of doing it the right way. Plus I don't want to have to wait another 2 months for the next batch.

Cold shocking before casing is madness. Cold shocking halts mycelium growth, thus your casing layer won't become colonised. :razz:

Do I put a small amount of peroxide, like a teaspoon, into a spray bottle to disinfect the tub? Or just use straight peroxide?

And I can't start casing if my bags are ~80% colonized? I'm anxious to get the damn thing started.

no need to fall into a fit! He^s right, sorry I was refering to the casing after it was colonised. Cold shock it before initiating the pinning-phase.

3% peroxide is enough. You got straight peroxide? Should be very expensive!!

I mean does it say 3% on the bottle? I don't have peroxide yet. Just wondering if it's something that you just dump in a sprayer and spray away, or of you dilute it. But I take it by your post that it already comes 3%.

And how do you cold shock a whole tub of substrate? That's a pretty damn big fridge....

Not sure about lysol, I use surgical spirit, it evaporates very quickly so there is not much left on your gloves, plus you are not going to be giving the substrate a massage, so it only the bits you touch that might suffer.

As for peroxide, I fill my spray with boiled water, let it cool then add the peroxide, I use 6ml to 1 liter, works great for me.

And straight peroxide (100% h2o2) is very dangerous, the Germans used it in ww2 in experimental jet fighter fuel mixes. If poured over cloth it with cause it to burst into flames!

So you can read them.

If you had something relevent to add it wouldn't be an issue, but you're asking a question to someone who hasn't been here for months in a 5 year old thread with outdated information. Now the next noob that comes along not paying attention to the date reads about "cold shocking" and thinks he's discovered a great new way to get his cubes to pin.
