Rinsing WBS with hard water?
    #2386944 - 02/28/04 05:58 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

My friend iicarus has a dilema. The general consensus seems to be that you should thoroughly rinse WBS before cooking it. At the same time using hard water in your substrate is to be avoided. As iicarus's tap water is indeed hard he's not really sure what to do. In the past he has just used spring water, and exchanged it several times while soaking the WBS. Would he be better off just using the the tap water anyway for rinsing? The reason I ask is because his jars have been quite slow in colonizing, despite incubation and liquid innoc. Oh yeah, the obvious solution--to use a different type of grain--will be done eventually, but in the meantime he has a bunch of WBS to get rid of.

The time to decide is near. Iicarus would appreciate any opinions on the matter.

I would say it wouldnt be a big issue...but again, try only  a few jars out, it may cost a few cents worth of materials, and a little more time...thats the life of the amatuer mycologist! :wink:
