growing myc in a gallon jar
    #3344853 - 11/11/04 02:30 AM (12 years, 30 days ago)

I was wondering if anyone has tried to grow myc in a larger jar besides 1/2 pint or pint jars, because i was looking at this gallon pickle jar and thought it would be perfect to try it with.

I was wondering the same thing the other day.
I think it would work. It would take a while though and if it got contaminated it would be abunch of work down the drain.

You can do grains... but clean it out really well, first. I think the pickle jar might be too tall for some PCs, though.

You can incubate in any kind of jar. There are just a few things to keep in mind..

1) For cakes, is it wide-mouth so you can get it out?
2) Colonization time if you can't shake it
3) Size in relation to PC

etc.

I've never seen a wide-mouth pickle jar, so I'd assume you would be doing grains. I don't see why it wouldn't work, but you would have to figure the lid out. Maybe a layer of tyvek down first, then the lid.. with polyfill stuffed in the hole in the lid.

If you wanted to do a transfer and didn't have to stick a needle in there, tyvek > lid with holes in it would be fine.

I wouldnt use it for BRF even if it was wide mouthed...it would take forever to colonize. Grains can be shaken however and it would colonize quickly. To do the lid I'd put tyvek then lid and then you can just put a band aid over the hole on the lid. It should breath. Even with tape you can just have a second hole. Or do grain to grain transfer (this would be good or liquid myc instead of spores to make colonization faster). Either way..if it contams you loose all of your grain at once..unless your doing lots of these and losing one wont be a problem I'd think about sticking with smaller jars.

I think since you said 1/2 pint and pint your talking about PF tek and I wouldnt do this at all..grains would be much much better.

OK, this is a bit off subject, but im to lazy to start a new post. I have a number of contaminated jars that i put outside away from my good ones. I forgot about them and just looked at them and they have fat amounts of myc with patches of mold. I was wondering what would happen if i tryed to friut them? Could I cut off small pieces of the myc(that seem to have no mold) and fruit these little chunks? Or would the mushrooms be contamed or toxic? What are the risks of fruiting contaminated myc? I know these are pretty stupid ?'s but I thought i read somewhere that its fine to cut off small chunks of mold, and I cant really see how the mushroom it self would be affected unless the mold grow on the mushy. Ok thanks for any words of wisdom.
