... so I had an idea today. How about using an iron to seal mycobags. My friend has my impulse sealer right now and Im workin on some bulk stuff so I thought Id give it a try. I know these things are expensive so I thought Id post this for some broke peeps that want air tight mycobags.

heres what ya do.

Start warming up your iron super hot, no steam necissary. Lay out a clean towel, that you dont mind possibly getting gunked up. steralize the hell out of the area as usual. lay out a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil on top of the towel, just enough to fold over the top of the bag where you want to seal. now after youve done your grain transfer or liquid inoculation, fold the top of your bag several times, small folds or even roll it a bit. place the edge to be sealed on the foil and fold the foil over the edge. now iron over the foil several times. let it cool before you try to remove the foil or just leave the foil on. This can be done under a hood or in conjunction with the oven tek to limit possibilities for contams. I just tried it out and it worked perfectly.

hope this helps someone out

Some people have recommended just using several paper clips or some kind of metal tie to just temporarily close it for pasteur/steril ization. Then you can open it an use it without cutting it. This also allows for reuse because those damn things are pretty expensive.
