How to avoid "over-pinning" in grow bag (oysters)
    #26298324 - 11/04/19 02:31 PM (1 year, 3 months ago)

Hi all. I'm doing oysters (Phoenix, golden and pink) in grow bags. I've done sterilized substrate but recently switched to pasteurization so I followed common protocol and poked holes in the bag at the outset. On my first pink bag (I've been all Phoenix till now) I've got pinning EVERYWHERE. Obviously they can't all be mushrooms and it looks like a lot of wasted energy to me. I've had the same problem with the Phoenix when I didn't poke the holes until pinning started, and now expect the same with a golden bag that's just finishing up colonization. What can be done to avoid this???
On a related note, I had a contam in one bag I poked the holes in right at the hole site. This seems pretty likely to happen so I'm wondering, how is it supposed to work with pasteurization if you poke the holes right away before the mycelium gets the upper hand? Wouldn't it make more sense to keep the bag sealed with a filter patch and poke the holes after colonization? Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for your input!

What are you using for sub? I bet you are using straw. Where the sub gets FAE it will pin. Straw allows FAE to go everywhere. Thus all the pinning. Pack the straw as much as you can and then cut the bag where it is tightest against the bag usually the bottom of the bag. But I use soy hulls and fuel pellets it is much easier.
