soak your grains overnight, popcorn is best simmered for an hour and then left to soak... drain it for 30-45 minutes but do not rinse it, the residual sugars on the hulls help to speed colonization... dump the substrate into the bag and fold overthe top so that it protects the filter from moisture... use a clothes pin to hold it....

after you remove the bag, have a safe surface to work on and you can seam the edge of the bag on the hottest setting without steam or you can also place a bare copper wire under the opening and run the iron over the top... it's a finer seam but can be a little tricky...

hope it helps

yes... any metal will... it simply makes a neat small seam...
