Question on Popcorn Tec
    #2000938 - 10/11/03 08:12 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

My friend has his corn soaking and wants to inoculate his popcorn jars tomarow. He is cofused looking at the tec though and wants to know what he's looking at here http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7923/pag/3

is this ONLY the band of the lids minus the lid itself or is this tyvec OVER the lid part?
Thank you!

I don't think that even is Tyvec. I'm not sure what it is.

I use just the bands and tyvec, then cover up all but less than a square inch with masking tape. If you leave the entire surface of tyvec exposed it will dry out really really fast if you don't also provide lotsa humidity. Which if you did that and incubated it too you should get hella fast colonization time.

Be sure to cover the lids with aluminum foil in the PC. even then the tape can come loose from the tyvec from the heat. pressit back down before you remove the foil from the jar when it has cooled.

Though I'm not sure what Tyvec is, I am sure there is no lid there, just the band with the stuff over it. I don't think you'd be able to put anything over the lid without ripping it.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

i also use tyvek with popcorn, and hitler is right it will dry out on you if not taped in some way. although i don't tape until after pc'ing and innoc. just use foil during pc.

popcorn is a great way of doing things so stick with it and you shall have great rewards.

i love popcorn and it is almost all i use so if you need help along the way, just shoot me a pm.

good luck.

Also you can peel back the tape and flame the needle and melt a hole in the tyvec when you inject the spores, then seal the tape back over it.
