a few growing questions..
    #2903640 - 07/18/04 10:37 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

my friend is getting ready to try his first grow other than the pre-mixed mycobags. he heard that you can use drinking glasses with aluminum foil over them to grow in. will the tin foil be enough to keep contaminants out? he does not have a pressure cooker so will be using a large pot to sterilize in. what setting should they be boiled at, and should he put something like a dish cloth in the bottom of the pan to keep the glass from cracking or exploding? thank you for any help

I have also heard you can use drinking glasses...I have not tried it, nor would I...Its only 6 or 7 bucks for canning jars...if you do use glasses, make sure they are tapered so they slid out easy.

A large pot if good enough for pf cakes.

As far as setting goes, boiling is boiling, water will boil at the same temperatre (around 212F) so just make sure its boiling (once boiling a higher setting will only cause water to evaporate faster, it will not increase the temperature)

I dont think the glasses will explode, but I would certainly use a rag to keep them off the hot metal..

Good Luck!

i have read in a few grow guides on here that a large pot will do the trick, has anyone had luck with using a pot instead of pressure cooker? also a friend of a friend of mine does not pc or boil his jars at all, he mixes them, freezes for two days then lets unthaw and grow, has anyone heard of anything like this?

yes you can use a pot instead of a pressure cooker....only if your using rice flour, whole grains need a pressure cooker..

Ive never heard of freezing jars to sterilize them. I dont think it would work...many endospores(contams) can resist freezing temperatures
