Microwave tek?
    #2977839 - 08/08/04 11:59 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I saw it here http://www.shroomery.org/index/the/default/par/22707
in the gallery.

I've searched for "micro tek" and micro AND tek, but don't find anything. Is this a viable way to grow? It seems much easier than using a pressure cooker...

Any tips/links?

That person is using the PF Tek though not grains. With the PF Tek in jars you dont need to PC, just boil for 30 minutes. If you try that tek with grains (which is when you need the PC) I would bet that youd fail miserably though.

PF Tek calls for boiling the jars 60 minutes from the point the water starts to boil. 30 minutes is not sufficient. Also, it always better to pressure cook.

Okay PF Tek is with brown rice flour/virmiculite, correct? That's what I'll be using. I was thinking of boiling, but there's a good chance of contam, so I'll just pick up a 30$ PC at the store near here.

How do I do the microwave tek?

Yes, PF Tek is w/ BRF and Vermiculite.

Don't do the microwave tek. If you have a pressure cooker, then that should be your first option. If you boil the jars correctly, you should have a high sucess rate.

OKay, my friend doesn't have a PC, so could they just follow this teck http://shroomery.org/index/par/3372 which is

??? That tek suggestes boiling. If I follow it correctly, I should be okay though? That would save me quite a bit if I didn't have to pick up a PC.

EDIT: I just found this in that guide

Quote:

Take the fresh mushrooms (6-7 per person depending on size of caps) and cut the caps and stems into very small pieces. Place mushroom pieces into medium sized pot 3/4 filled with water. Boil the water along with the mushrooms. Boil for ten minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 more minutes. Strain mushrooms with a coffee filter, or paper towel. At this point, if you truly desire tea, a mint flavored version works well. Otherwise, kool-aid is an option. Grape kool-aid mixed stronger than usual will definitely cover the taste. Serve with ice to chill the kool-aid to the desired temperature.

always use a PC if you have a choice, even though its 30-50$ it's still a great investment.

That edit you included is for preparing mushroom tea, not sterilizing jars.
