Mind's Easy Bag 2 Bag Grain Transfers
    #27138762 - 01/10/21 01:22 AM (16 days, 17 hours ago)

I started using bags instead of jars a few months ago and have absolutely loved the transition. You can really maximize the amount of grains you can sterilize with bags, relative to jars. Also, being able to use one bag per tub makes it way easier than trying to add 4-5 jars per tub. The point is; bags rock!

However, the worst thing with bags is the difficulty of doing bag 2 bag transfers. Having to awkwardly bunch up and pour a tall bag can be rather annoying. I had been going the route that most go by inoculating jars, then g2g them into bags, which works great. But I've recently started inoculating master bags with agar, like so, https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/27088090

I've been turning each of those master bags into roughly 10 - 4 lb bags. Since that's necessitating bag 2 bag transfers, I've figured out a better way to do those annoying transfers in a relatively simple way. So I present...



Mind's Easy Bag 2 Bag Grain Transfers


What you need:


- Flow hood
  - a SAB can be used if you have good technique but that sounds like a pain the ass

- Master bag


- Receiving bags


- Impulse sealer - this tek only works with an impulse sealer


- Scalpel

- Torch

Steps:

- Lay out both receiving bags and master bag in front of the flow

- Break up the master bag grains

- Flame sterilize the scalpel, cut the corner of the master bag, and push the air out of the master bag (this step is only necessary if your bag is full of air, which mine usually are)


- Reseal the master bag below the filter using the impulse sealer


- Flame the scalpel and slice off the excess part of the master bag above the now resealed part of the bag


-Open up the receiving bags


- Flame sterilize the scalpel and slice off a corner of the master bag.
Make sure to slice a big enough hole to allow easy pouring but not too big to make a mess.
(No picture. Figure it out yourself)

- Pour the master bag into the open receiving bags


- Seal up the receiving bags and viola!
