Slightyl burnt mixture...will it still work?
    #2213938 - 01/01/04 11:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I made 8 jars full of the mixture of vermiculite, water, and brown rice flour. I dont have a pressure cooker, so i decided to boil the jars using the steam method. I filled the pot up w/ water to about 1 inch then i set the timer to 60 minutes and let it boil. After about 45 minutes i smelled something burning so i went downstairs and turned off the stove. all the water evaporated out and the bottom of the jars were a little burnt. The mixture is slightly burned at the bottom....what im asking is if this is still good to use or if i need to re-do the process over again. Thanks for the help, Nick.

its always better to start again than to waste more time and spores, in my opinion.

shianggu, you said this happened to you also and it still worked for you? How burnt was your mixture on the bottom? Cause on all 8 of my jars only a small bottom layer of mixture looks burnt. I know i should probably start over...but everything seems to look perfectly fine but just that small layer. :P this is my first time trying to grow shrooms. If i decide to start over could i re-use the jars?

Anytime you get sludge its best to just dump em and start over. Very good chance you'll end up with partly colonized jars

K thanks guys, guess ill put my laziness aside and re-fill the jars today. Another quick ? though... Im going to be using the steam method again because i dont have a pressure cooker. How long should i let those jars boil? Also, should i boil them with the foil on top?

I burned about 6 of 24 jars I did a while back and decided to go ahead and try them. They where BRF and had tuned a burt brown color on just the bottom and they ALL colinized fine. If anything burning the BRF just decreases the nutrients alittle. hehe at least you know the burt part is sterilize d lol.
