Way I do prints.
    #2809570 - 06/19/04 09:45 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Well this is how I like to do it. I like to get my foil ready like this That way when the print is done you have these flaps to fold over.

I then get a half pint jar (wide mouth) and prepare it like this. I ditch the disk and silicone in a tyvek disk. This will allow the cap to dry a little as sits in the jar. (Which causes more spores to drop and prevents the cap from rotting. Will also allow the prints to dry once the mushroom cap is removed.)

Next put in the foil and cover with the lid. Put some foil on top and pc for one hour at 15 psi.

Now uncover and wipe off and your little print chamber is ready.

Now take the jar to your mushroom chamber and loosen the top but don?t remove it.

I like to put a pin in each of the mushroom caps I?m going to print.

Cut the shroom just below the cap and put it on the foil in the jar as fast as you can. Easy to do since the jar lid is loose.

Put it in a glovebox or where you like to do your work.

In 24 hrs open up and take out the cap by the pin (now we know what the pin is for) and put the cap back on. Let it sit for 24 hrs again to let the spores dry.

Once dry fold up foil and store in a cool dry place

I hate to clean my print foil with alcohol.

I do mine in a half pint jar also and just place the cap in the jar...
I just use the lid ring and a paper towel so it can breathe a bit...
Magas way is a lot cleaner so you should really do it his way
Also i dont use the foil because i just inject my syringe water directly in the jar...I usually make about 10 syringes at a time this way

Actually, if I'm gonna make the syringes right away I pretty much do it your way. I put water in instead of foil and when I take the print I have a little screen in the jar that the cap sits on.

I still pc and everything the same.

Couldn't you just clean the surfaces with alcohol and place a clean glass over the (smaller) printing jar?

I hate to use alcohol on my printing foil and jars. I also want to be dead sure not only the foil but the entire inner surface of the jar is sterile

Yeah you could do it that way...I usually just let the cap sit on the bottom of the jar for a day or so ....you just have to be carefull that the cap doesnt start rotting or molding thats why i use a paper towel as the top so it gets some air...My way is a good way if you dont forget to take the cap out after it drops its spores but isnt really the cleanest :smirk:

Yeah, I usually do foil cause I usually take some time before I do the same strain again and it's better for storing over long periods of time.

This might seem like a dumb question, but you can still eat the cap after doing a print in this manner, right? :smile:

Shure you can go ahead and dry the cap just like your other regular harvested shrooms after it has dropped its spores in the bottom of the jar..

If you store a print in a plastic bag in a cool dry place it will be good for years.

Alounacara
in your print method, which I have used myself, have you ever had problems with the syringes from them? I don't expect any, but haven't gotten there yet.
thanks

Surprisingly i have had great luck making syringes this way...I usually blast the spores off the foil with a syringe directly in the jar if i am making them from a print i have recieved...

WHat about the outer rim of the cap where it contacts the foil? You don't take any precautions about that?
