Reduction of contaminants for bulk
    #335269 - 06/05/01 05:00 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Have been injecting 10 ml of .15% H2O2 into quart jars of sterilized bird seed after addition of colonized seed to wipe out any contaminants that float in whie the lid is open. Anyone else ever try this? I'll post my results. If this works my oyster mushrooms are gonna be great!

Well, this turned out to be a bad idea. The birdseed I'm using is pre-soaked for 48 hours befor being rinsed and drained then pressure-cooked (this is such a great way to do it because you can easily shake up the seed later, it doesn't clump!). So, the seed has already absorbed as much moisture as is can. The addition of 10 ml of 0.15% H2O2 is enough to fill the spaces between the seed with moisture that inhibits colonization so what ended up hapening with every jar that I tried this on is that it looked good for awhile but it never recovered after shaking. The seed began to smell slightly sour. I'm now convinced that it is better to NOT add any additional moisture so that the mycelium can do its thang and colonize quickly.
