Can one use a regular ziplock bag to colonize spawn?

Of course it would be cleaned out with alcohol. But does the actual zipper have some space to open the door to contaminates?  Thanks for the info. Rudiger420 :wexican:

So you mean the mycrobags that people all talk about can withstand the heat and pressure from the pressure cooker?

yeah - autoclavable bags.

regular ziplock even if they did last sterlization you'd need to make a tyvek filter for air exchange and it's not worth the time.

it sure would be nice if autoclavable bags had zip locks of some sort.. i have seen strange things made up by people using 2L bottle caps and the top of the bottle.. They must put it on after PCing

I think he meant using jars to sterilize grain. Then dumping the grain into a ziplock bag wiped with alcohol and doing the spawining in the bag.

Akin to a grain to grain without the sterility of a PC'ed jars.

the bags would be sterile from the manufacturing proscess.... it could work but it still needs a filter... others have tried it and had sucess

Haven't searched for flat cakes, but i'd...

-duct tape some tyvek windows into the baggies
-work fast
-work true
-let people know how it went
