bulk straw question
    #3277689 - 10/26/04 01:38 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I was thinking about pasteurizing some straw in water tonight inside of a pillowcase. I'd have to do this in the kitchen. Shroomgods tek says to let it sit and drain on an oven rack over a sink. I will not have my hepa running in my kitchen so I don't know about contams floating around. Would it be ok to leave it in the pillowcase draining for around 12 hours? Would contamination become easier if I leave it out like this before dumping into the container? At this point I would bring the pillowcase into my clean room where the HEPA is, put all the straw into my sterite container then spawn.

also, where is this 3mil furniture plastic he uses to cover the straw come from? Would a clear garbage bag work the same?

OVERGROW the government!!

it's not a war on drugs, it's a war on personal freedom, ok, thats what it is.

I pull my pillowcase of straw out of the bucket on the stove right into a collander that sits in the top of a 5 gal plastic bucket just perfectly right in the kitchen
it stays right there till cool enough to spawn to which BTW is several hours
never had a problem

garbage bag works fine

Contams are not a problem. Your straw is pasturized so good organisms will fight off the bad ones.

Bag works fine, plastic is at a hardware store, comes on rolls..

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
