first time straw
    #1969209 - 10/01/03 01:01 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

My brother's friend has some straw pasteurizing on the stovetop at the moment, when it comes off he plans to dump it in a rubbermaid, use a cheese grater to shred a PF cake over it, cover it with perforated foil, and leave alone to incubate. Sound like he's on the right track?

yeah, make sure u all ow the straw to cool throughly and drain somewhat. Also make sure u cover up the sides of the rubbermaid with foil or black electric tape so it will not allow light in

I'd make sure there was some spawn mixed in with the straw too so that it's not just on top. Shred half the pf cake, mix it up, then put the remaining half on top.

Thanks a lot, he hadn't thought to tape the rubbermaid or mix the spawn in thoroughly.

may i suggest you cover it with plastic wrap instead...
compact the straw/spawn as tight as possible, then place the plastic wrap on top, PACK THAT DOWN TIGHT, the plastic wrap has to be very very tight against the top, if not, then water begins to bead up on the plastic, and green forms (i lost my 1st bulk tray to green because of that)

tuck in the edges of the plastic like you are making a bed...
there is a great pictoral tek describing what i am saying, go search for it, its fantastic....

best of luck
(btw, straw + poo kick ass.. make your substrate atleast 5 inches deep and be preparied to be amazed at teh size and amount of fruit you harvest)

Loose plastic wrap has never been a problem for my friend, but this is probably a good suggestion. Tuck that bitch!
