few questions before i get started
    #2374829 - 02/24/04 07:15 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

me and a friend are about to embark on the amazing journey of growing mushrooms but we have a few questions first.

we have no PC so were going to have to steam sterilize the filled pf jars. In the tek i get confused because first it says to loosely put on the lids so the steam can penetrate easily, then in the next paragraph it says something about making sure they're sealed all the way so water cant get in and mess up the ratio. Please could someone give info on successful steaming procedure.

Also i read that using natural water is better than tap. Would water scooped from the river work? if so I assume i need to boil it first or something? Any info on the best kind of water would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance :smile:

Ok i'll try to answer your first question , if you heat up a sealed jar in a PC or only with steam its alot of risk that it explod , so you need to let the lids loose , if the lids are loose and have at least 2 layer of aluminium sheet covering it and if the water dont boil on your jar it will be ok and its no chance for the ration to be changed.

and for your second question i realy think spring water sold in all good market are the best , because water of the river are full of spores and other thing who could cause infection in your pf jar.

p.s. sorry for my bad spelling :smile:

Do you live in a adobe hut in the middle of no where? no tap for some water?

Make sure you dont pack the stuff into the jar...just let it fall out of your hand into the jar..it will make a diff.

The lids should be loose under the foil, but when your done steaming wait for it to cool a bit..open pot then tight lids with foil on asap (using hot gloves or whatever)
