4 U zealous anxious noobs

Yeah, So how about I got just a little bit to over confident and now 13 jars are completely wasted. Not only that, but I don't have a PC so I mainly use brf cakes, which take forever(3-4wks) to colonize...So now i'm pretty much screwed. Either I got a bit careless with the spores(made my own syringe) or I wasn't sterile enough(i did a bunch to be sterile), Well it had to have been the spores, all 13 got contams. Anyways I though i'd share my bad luck with ya just to show you how 1 thing done carelessly can really screw you up. Well Gl all and stay Clean and Sterile. Later.

lol, that's one idea, keep S clean and dont think you're immune b/c ur soo good but yeah, that could work too, and brf cakes sucl, im going to grains fairly soon, they take so much less time to colonize that it wouldn't be such a bummer as anxiously waiting 2 wks to find contams.

I think any PC is always better than a normal stove? Mine has no psi meter on it, but Ive read that when the ventile is rotating fast and is steamin it is about 15psi.

Do your cakes always take 3-4 weeks to colonize?
How come?

it should go up between 10 and 15 psi, atleast that's what i've read from people who buy the ones without gauges(typically walmart). But the manual should say what psi so that ud know what temp. you'd be cooking at. You could PC the syringes, i've heard of people wrappin them in aluminum foil but i'm not sure if it's necassary, but you should ask around or read up on it just in case i'm incorrect :smile: Gl.

Lol, i just read what you wrote and now i kind of sound like an idiot, oh well w/e, here ya go for the people who didnt know what i just wrote (GD brain dead i swear)

to sterilize syringes most people just boil up some water.. draw it in and shoot it out 4 or 5 times and vola.. keep some water in it if you want some sterile water.

yeah thats how i do my syringes, but some people like to take it the extreme, go figure. i donno but i'd get a new Pc if urs is "ancient". Those things are like bombs being held together just by the hindges, lol, so i donno and i use brf cakes b/c i have no Pc like i said...I could do grains and all the other "wonderfuls" but i cant reach high enough temps. to kill the bacteria in them, hence why everyones talking about a Pc...i hate brf cakes, time to get a pressure cooker and cook up sum grains...

Fuck cakes, fuck jars, fuck PCs.  :evil: :evil: :evil:

Fastest, greatest yielding tek is one that requires no middle process nor even a PC!

Noc up a liquid culture and perpetuate that for spawn (EASY EASY)  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Spawn your liquid culture to pasteurized straw/poo.

Only 2 simple steps once you have your initial liquid culture.

There is no more efficient and better yielding way to grow if all environmental conditions are met!

AND NO PC!  :thumbup:

I prefer to encourage mushrooms to grow right of the syringe. It takes alot of sweet talk and a little rhetoric, but the yeilds are HUGE!

Check out this FAQ on correct pressure cooker usage. "When the pressure cooker reaches the proper temperature, the rocker will jiggle audibly, and you can see the steam being released. Adjust heat lower to maintain a slow, steady rocking motion."

contams take around 2 to 3 days to come out so why are you waiting 3 to 4 weeks to see them6?

hmm. when i make my personal syringes i just use some bottled water a shot glass, a clean syringe and some lysol.

i spray the air with lysol. wipe ou the glass with alcohol. scrape the spores into my shot glass. shoot a syringe full of bottled water into the shot glass. stirt it, then suck it up. wipe the needle with alcohol, cap it, then store it until i need it. i do go through more steps to be streril when im making syringes for other people though.

anyway, i have not had any contaminated syringes that way. if there were any contams they were isolated to one jar and came from some where other than the syringe. but in the last year ive only had like 3-4 comtamed jars. and thats out of around 150 jars.
