rubbing alcohol question
    #2833791 - 06/27/04 04:46 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

hey, I just sterilized and then innoculated my jars. They went into a dark warm container, which had been sterilized shortly before with rubbing alchohol and paper towels.

the fumes from the alcohol wont hurt the mycenial growth, will it?

depends on how much alcohol you used. You should let it evaporate first.

hmm I'm not 100% but I would have to say it probably didn't hurt them

I would not worry. Unless the PPM is quite high, it shoudn't bother them. Especially since they were jars. I sprayed a casing layer with alcohol once that had the green meanies. Both mushroom mycelium and the green mold survived, although the trash can tek was employed shortly thereafter...
