G2G Transfer with Compost? Method possible?
    #3375162 - 11/17/04 06:20 PM (12 years, 23 days ago)

Would it be possible to sterlize compost in the oven with oven bags, then take the compost and put it into jars, then drop a piece of mycelium in? Not worrying about the possibility of contams (they have never been a problem.

If this is possible should I wet the compost before putting it into the oven?

How wet should the compost be when putting it into jars?

Thanks

Mushroom spores can survive space travel... imagine the possibilities.

If you have a flow hood it could be done. Exposing any sterilized substrate to air even for a second is begging for contams. If I were you I would just sterilize the compost in the jars and then try to do a quick transfer. About the water content, I dunno, maybe someone else will answer.

Compost is pasteurized not sterilized. Read this:
http://www.shroomery.org/index/the/default/par/23371
If it were me i'd pasteurize the compost and then load it into a few larger containers and do a g2g and have a few big casings instead of an assload of jars that you'll have to empty out anyways. :thumbup:

That link doesn't really tell you how to do anything so here's one using oven bags like you mentioned.

You would probably be much better off pasteurizing the compost and going from there. You will have to use a bit more myc than you would use in a typical g2g ,but your chances of success would be much better. In order to ensure that you reach full colonization of the pasteurized substrate you should add at least a 1/10 ratio of myc vs. substrate.


Good Luck!

You're right, i didn't really make that clear that you couldn't just drop in a few grains huh? Good eye.
