Anyone have any ideas how to sterilize them? I had an infestation of mushrooms all over my large patch of wood chips in my back yard so I'd say they're a good substrate. Do you think they'd only be good for casing? What about just dumping them in a jar and innoculating them?

if you are trying to grow woodlovers then sure, just pc them same as any substrate.
Fresh is better than old wood chips though.

Ganja is right, fresh but dry wood chips are best, soak them for a couple of days and stay away from pine, cedar and most other soft woods.

If your growing Psilocybe cubensis, then no its a bad idea.

If you are growing woodlovers like Psilocybe cyanescens, azurescens... Then yes, sterilize. Make sure you have the right kind of woodchips however!

I wonder if pasteurization might work for these woodloving little myco's? An idea that I've had would be putting the wood chips in pillow case, but have a few handfuls of compost/shit in the pot with the water. The beneficial nutrients in the compost/shit would be 'washed' into and absorbed by the wood chips, and the harmful contaminants would be pasteurized. I'm not sure if wood loving mushrooms would get much from shit, but I have a feeling they might. I've seen p. cubensis mycelia go through sticks and wood chunks in compost before, maybe p. cyanescens would like some of the nutrients found in animal waste.


Good luck.

Except it adds another vector for contams...woodchips by themselves are rather resistant.

Check out part of my TEK towards the bottom.  It is a very cheap source for creating mycelial mass/spawn, but it would be better to fruit off of something else.  I personally have been getting good yields using a multiple spore strain out of bags that I also use to inoculate outdoor patches.  I have very low contamination rate with just 45 minutes in a PC at 15 psi.  I think this is bc the woodchips have plenty of space for steam to pass through and isn't a supper dense block of substrate.  I also supplement with some BRF, azomite, gypsum and ag-lime.  I use 2 pint size BRF cakes to inoculate bc I suck at grain.  The bag is completely colonized in about 2-3 weeks and can fruit in the bag or then be used to inoculate more nutrient dense substrates.
