Does this tek really work
    #2593962 - 04/23/04 08:58 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Has anyone tried this technique http://www.sporelab.com/shroomwi.htm

It just looks I dunno funny after looking at the posts posted here. Especially the part about not using p. cooker. Thanks for any help offered.

You dont need a pressure cooker,Although it is better to use one,boiling/steaming works fine,but dont use that tek,use this one.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

"These jars are placed in a covered pot of boiling water until sterile (about 45 minutes). "
I pressure cook 1/2 pint jars longer than that, and he's using pints.
I wouldn't suggest trying his process. Like you said, just look at all the thousands of posts from hundreds of people who believe otherwise. To risky, IMO.

A PC is not necessary when using verm/BRF{ I boil for 1 hr.} Most teks use2/1ratio, not3/1.Also,less chance of contam if you innoc thru small holes you make in the lids before boiling. See PF tec- it worked well for my dog first time

I've done jars with no precautions: no pc, no steaming jars. I simply boiled the substrate(brf) scooped it into the jars with a spoon, and then incubated in a closet with a pot of boiled water placed in the bottom shelf for heat every once in a while. Half the jars contamed, half fruited. The point is most anything will *work* it just comes down to how much of a success rate you want.
