Make shift Incubator
    #2575985 - 04/19/04 12:55 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

As i am aware to carry out my shroom grow i will need some sort of Incubation chamber. Which is easily made out of rubbermaid tubs and a water heater. I am trying to find a way to incubate without a water heater.
Because i have something called a Brew Belt which is used in homebrew to keep the Kegs Warm in winter. Beer is heated to about 80degres F when fermenting and as far as i know shrooms require the same.
What if i filled my 60litre fermetre with about 2-3 inches of water from the bottom. And place my jars in the water. They wont be submerged just sitting in about 3 inches of water.
Then ill wrap the fermentre in the brew belt and in my theroy that should make a nice lil incubation chamber.
Only problems i can think of are.
Maybe the jars shouldnt be actually partially submerged in the water?
Besides that i can think of why it wouldnt work.
So u understand a brew belt just plugs into th wall and it wraps nicely around the fermentre to keep its contents from getting to cold.

What u reckon or should i shut up and buy a water heater.

From what you say, it seems like that should work, but there is only one way to find out for sure if it will work.
Give it a try.

hey luvbud
add a dash of h2o2(hydrogen peroxide)1 part to 10 to the water the jars will be sitting in when they are incubating,also if you have K-mart over there in WA check them for jars,they just started selling them a year ago but yeah the drinking glasses are just as good :thumbup:
