1st off, thanks to Mycobag for a quick and quality order
Here is a quote from their site:
A breathable filter membrane on each bag provides for different gas exchange rate with different membranes. Membranes are designed to provide gas exchange rates for different applications; micron size range from 0.1 to 5 microns and each membrane has a nominal gas exchange rate.
now this prompted me to inquire what might be the optimal micron size for shiitake sawdust spawn. i could see that the air exchange rate might need some tweaking considering the spawn can take 2-3 months to become fully colonized.
now maybe i am just retarded for thinking this way or maybe plenty of people might consider fitting the micron filter to the species and interpret the above quote to mean that Mycobag does just this.
here's a quote from the response:
The Micron filter size is a universal size, and has nothing to do with introduction of spawn. The bag is injected through the injection port, the filter is used only for air exchange throughout the process.
1st off thank you for spelling out the painfully obvious. Either I came across as retarded or Mycobag.com has to deal with retards on a regular basis.
Maybe I am overestimating my mental faculties but when I compare the 2 above quotes i see a glaring contradiction.
Assuming I have a firm grasp on my mental abilities I'm going to walk out on a limb and guess that what the 1st quote was trying to convey is that the filter patches have a hole size ranging from 1-5 microns for any given patch.
By the way, I got 2 entirely different responses to the same inquiry as I queried both "orders" and "info" mail accounts. Here was the other reply:
for any spawn the filter spore size should be less than 0.2 microns.
Whoah. Is this not flying in the face of practically all of Mycobag.com's previous statements concerning micron size? Again, maybe I've got a screw loose, this is why I'm getting a group of my peers' input.
What I'm hinting at for Mycobag.com is Consistency.
Another shining example of what I mean: My original inquiry also concerned the specific temperature required to seal the bags as I wanted to get an adequate sealer.
The seal is done in a fraction of a second at about 250 degrees C for 1/2 a second to 1 sec.
On any 10-14 inch sealer the temp. should be turned up to 3/4 to full depending on how hot the sealer gets.
Again, I'm stressing consistency, here.
Also, some of this information would be great to add to the site.
Again, this is a happy and most likely returning customer, just a bit rattled.
