Straw log with a 2 Liter. Innoculation?
    #1982495 - 10/05/03 11:44 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)


Hello,

  I want to give a shot to this straw tek that uses a plastic 2 Liter bottle for colonization.  I'm just not really sure of how would be a good way to innoculate the straw.

  I have some popcorn spawn ready to use. Here's briefly how I plan to prepare this thing.  Please tell me if you see any problem with this...

  I'll chop some straw into 1-3 inches pieces and pack the 2 liter bottle with as much as I can just to figure how much straw I will need for this bottle.  Then, I'll remove the straw from the bottle and pasteurize it using a pillow case and a large pot at 170F for 1h15 minutes.

  Next, I'll drain the pillow case for a couple hours and let it cool.

  Once it's drained and cooled, I'll drop a quart of colonized popcorn into the pillow case and mix it well with the straw.

  I will desinfect the 2 liters bottle with alcohol  and pack the straw/popcorn spawn mix in it.  I'll find a way to close the bottle with some plastic .

  That's how I plan to do it.  I would appreciate some comments.

I also have a couple questions.

1- Should I make some holes on the bottle for air exchange or      keep it sealed?

2- Should I incubate the bottle at 86F or be concerned about biological heating ?

Thanks for your inputs!  :thumbup:

sounds good...I would do more straw than what fits into the bottle when dry tho...maybe 4 bottles worth....you'll be able to fit more straw in when its wet and you want to stuff as much as you possibly can in there

you can pre soak the straw to have a better idea of how much straw will fit and it's a good idea for optimal hydration of the straw? Good luck!
