Try using the straight PF Tek man. It rocks.

That is two cakes 75% colonized then cased.
You cant go wrong with the PF Tek. and Shroom Wizards casing method is pretty cool too. I haven't tried the PF Double ended casing tek yet.

Hey melter8or, in your oringinal post you said your friend had the problem So if it's your friends problem why do "YOU" have to worry about buying a pressure cooker, shouldn't that be your "FRIENDS" problem?
Just curious. You're not growing are you? Shame on you if you are. tsk tsk tsk! :smile:

I had the same contam problem with my first (ever) batch. I used (and still use) MMGG, however, I learned that if you boil the jars (do not forget a lid) for 2 hours instead of one you will be just fine. I haven't lost a single jar to contams after doing this. Also, every time I inject a bit of spores I wipe the needle with a bit of cotton soaked in rubbing alcohol.

However,
you should really consider using Uncle lazlo's Mycelium tek (see grow/find). By using mycelium you can soak the whole thing in H2O2 + the mycelium will start growing much faster.

Good luck (although you wont need luck if you are careful)

Butt, Butt, Butt!!!!!

you cant afford a pressure cooker? wtf they are dirt cheap!
you can get a brand name new one for around 20$ which will do 8 1/2 pt jars..
look on ebay.. look at junk stores, you can get one for even less..
can afford, its not an excuse, they are cheap

melter8or:

I'm with DinoMyc on this one... you really should make the investment and get a pressure cooker. I got one about a month about on e-bay. $20 plus $3.50 shipping, a brand new Mirro pressure canner that can do eight 1/2 pint jars at time. That'll be the best twenty bucks you ever spend on this hobby...

good luck

I see pressure cookers all the time for about $2 at the Sally Anne. I've even been thinking of stocking up on them but they are so cheap new it wouldn't be worth it!

A friend of mine recently got a bunch of PF syringes. Only 1 jar colonized fully without stalling. Several never germinated. He used the exact same method as they did with Hawk's Eye syringes, where he had 100% success with full colonization.

I've heard a lot of good things about PF though. Maybe this was just a weak batch or whatever.

That's just the facts as my friend sees them.

I was EXTREMELY dissapointed in my last syringe from PF. All the friuts except 1 were sterile, no spores :frown: I didn't even bother keeping that print figuring the resulting friuts would be just as worthless.

Who know, like mentioned earlier, maybe just a bad batch, but maybe not...

Peace.

I have heard alot of bad press about PF lately.. i wonder if his strain is starting to show extreme signs of mutation..
i wonder if he has a backup culture from back in teh day to rejuvinate his stock
anyway

Here ya go Jimmy James... this is only 2
1/2 pint jars of finch seed/verm cut in 1/2.. cased with the 50/50+ mix.. the strain is the cambodian cubensis.

Perhaps its time to upgrade that strain your working with.

Isn't it funny that all our friends are using us, in a very nasty brutal way.
I mean if i was to ever cultivate mushrooms(god forbid!), i wouldn't make my close friends, my pals ask dangerously illegal questions for me...

such a shame, this is....
