Spawn bags too easily contam'd without impulse sealer?
    #3338135 - 11/09/04 06:26 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I was thinking about getting some spawn bags instead of jars, but I don't have one of those impulse sealers. Are they more susceptible to contamination than are jars? I was looking at these:

What kind of retail store would have something that could be a substitute?

I use spawn bags. Many people dont use impulse sealers. You'll just have to either fold it a few times and use clothes pins, or zip ties. I buy my bags from mycosupply.com They are $70 for 100, but mycobag.com has spawn bags for $30 for 100. I've never tried them and cannot vouche. Impulse sealers are only 20-30 on ebay plus $10 shipping.

Good points derx. Also you can use a metal paperclip and twist the bag first, then twist the paperclip around it really tight.

People have been saying you can get 'turkey bags' (autoclave-able) in grocery stores, but I am curious to see how you add your own sturdy filter patch?

The turkey bags aren't clear though are they? Yea, just stuff a wad of polyfill in the opening and tighten it around that, simple enough.

What about them? If you're asking me if they're clear, I dont know I've never used them. Judging from the picture supplied, the bags are clear since you can see the contents of the bag.

Just wondering if those would work. I went to the grocery to check them out.

1) they're huge! I could easily fit 1.5 gal in those things
2) they don't seem that thick and heavy duty

Are those things off of mycobag.com reusable?

I have some of the mycobag.com and i think they are reusable, but i have never PC'd one and don't know how the cloth patch would stand up or the self healing innoc site. I intend to try it within a few days tho.

yes they're reusable. i dont see why you couldnt just put a few myco bags inside your PC. It's not like you just put 1 inside.... Either of your ideas will work, just depends what you want to do man. So stop asking questions and just do it. The best way to gain knowledge is from expierience. Good luck!
