Pressure cook too long?
    #3378208 - 11/18/04 09:37 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

As extra precaution i pressure cooked for two hours... Its day five and I dont see any mycleum. Could I have altered the moisture content?

My previous two jars that i cooked for an hour have water droplets on the side and started colonizing the second day, and the six jars im having problems with dont.

That's definitely overkill, I've never gone over 30 minutes PC'ing anything (including grains) and never had a contam. Running it that long also runs out your water level in the pc unless you filled it to the top (doh!)

holydiver, dont give bad advice, i put an inch of water in my PC, run it for 1.5 hours and it never dries up or even comes close to.

You can run a PC correctly for over two hours with less then an inch of water. A PC doesnt release much of the steam in it at all.

I do however think that you were way to quick to judge derx. A PC for 2 hours CERTAINLY can alter the water content if the jars were not covered with tin foil. You could have put less water in them to begin with though.

Huh? Take a breather. In my experience with my little pressure cooker the water runs out quick, that's all. Maybe I run it too hot, /shrug.

You did give bad advice though and I'm with him, people need to stop giving advice to people that they don't know about. Your pressure cooker isnt properly sealed if you can't hold an inch of water in it for more then 30 minutes PERIOD. You are using the PC incorrectly or it is broken..either way you shouldnt be giving advice about it obviously. Not to mention that grains should always be PCed for an hour and recommending never exceeding 30 minutes is once again BAD advice.

I've never grown shrooms, but I'd either dunk the cakes or inject them with sterile water, if they seem dehydrated.

Injecting with water is a good way to get contams..dry cakes will still colonize..just amke take a little longer but dont worry about it and try and fuck with it or youll screw them up more. Even if sterilized water is used to get the water spread around equally in a PF cake would be difficult. It can work (I've done it with straw before) but you really dont want to try with something like this, my straw had become cracker dry and wouldnt colonize no matter how long I left it, your in a different position.

You also shouldnt dunk cakes that arent fully colonized.

Perhaps you should wait until you have experience on the subject before posting advice on it..at least you mentioned you have no experience growing mushrooms but still..
