how to get mycelium out of the jar, EASIEST WAY?
    #2682635 - 05/15/04 04:02 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

now i have slammed... i have stuck a knife in and cut it into 4 pieces, and i have broken jars to get that damn colonized cake out.... but everything i do, ITS JUST NOT EASY?! now, my question, is there anyway that is EASIEST? i mean everyone is gonna say SLAM IT ON A COUNTERTOP, ... trust me, ive broken jars ive had to slam so hard, it just sticks like a mother fucker lol.. infact, its still stuck to the glass when it breaks! ... now, again im asking, is there anything i can lubricte it without contams? or a way to shrink it before i need it for a tek?

thanx

Maybe dunk it in the jar overnight? I have no idea but the water might loosen it up.

are you using tapered jars?

There definitly was something that went wrong during the whole process if you are breaking jars to get cakes out..

Im not sure ,but I think the water may cause the cake to swell up slightly causing it to wedge itself even tighter. If you are using the right jars it really shouldn't be an issue. But since it is,I think your best bet is to flame a spoon and dig it out of the jar and case it. Good Luck!

I've never had to do more than give ti a firm tap with my hand by holding the jar in one hand and then slapping the back of that hand into the palm of my other, sometimes it takes more than one tap and some shaking....but that's usually all there is to it..

Yup, I think that is the problem. You need jars that are slightly smaller at the bottom than the top. You can sometimes get what they call jelly jars at wallyworld,or the dollar store for like five bucks a dozen. They work great!

Get some wide mouth - Tapered Jars. They are much smaller on the bottom and there is nothing preventing them from coming out. Turning them upside down and they slide right out. You can get 12 of them online for like 6-8 dollars.

hey

there is a method as i heard of which is being used in some parts of the eu
as i have heard, using WECK(C)Canning Jars.

they are konically shaped, widemouded and of nice size/production.
example: 

u flip them into a ziplock, give it one or two bumps and it flups right
into it, crumbling made easy.

downside is, as u see, the used seal was made up of tinfoil, 3 layers
in total serving as a inoculation hull and a double layered anti-contam hull :wink:

it will require u using a completely sterile environment during incubation
since there is no air exchange filter at all, but, in the end,
isnt shrooming all about sterility?

peace ohm :mushroom2:

when I used to birth cakes I would hold the jar upside down and tap firmly with my palm all around the sides till it inched its way out...its a pain in the ass but it works...if you gonna case it then just cut it up with a knife and let the pieces full out
