Home made spawnbags

you can buy polypropolene for 4 cents per square foot

and all you need is a $19.95 heat sealer.
http://www.monokote.com/accys/topr2100.html

http://www.macpaper.com/c-33-onlinecatalog.html
or You can get 100 PP bags for $10...less in bulk.

http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.asp?page=20046&category=1,42207&ccurrency=1&SID=
for $12 you can get enough Tyvek to make 1000 filter patches

and these are just random searches...I wasn't even looking for deals.

why do spawnbags cost so much when it's basicly the same thing?
If I made these for sale I'd charge $5.00 for ten
not $20 for 10 and still make a profit.

Has anyone besides me used cheap Polypropolene bags for making spawn?
It's nice just having them ready made but I'm a hands on guy.
My local dollar store has 20 PP bags for $2 and I can put them in the pressure cooker,I just tie a wad of cotton in the neck of the bag with cotton string and I'm good to go.
Call me cheap but I think it's the only way to be.
after all it isn't like we can reuse this stuff.
Madness I tell you ...Madness.
Do you make your own?
You may choose only one
No I pay $2 per bag
No I use jars
Yes I make them for $0.10 per bag

Hi Peter

Me is thinking of using spawnbags in teh future when im trying grain.
Cause i think its a better fit in the PC and my TIT.

Coincidently I was checking some online PP bags and the prices differd a lot.

I wonder, how needed is the filterhole, cause there are also bags sold without filterholes and just being plain PP bag?

How reliable is that "cotton tek"?

who sells spawn bags for $20 for 10, your not looking in the right place, I pay 35 cents a bag and it's a hell of a lot easier than all your work.

Oh yeah the cotton teck works great.you can inject thru it too.and if the mushshrooms wanna eat it so be it.
If you feel it's getting too much air or drying out just tighten the string or put foil over the cotton wad in the neck of the bag.think of it as a filter patch that is an inch thick.
get "rolled cotton" from the drugstore for it.

with spawn bags you could just use a bandaid to cover the inoc point.. complete waste to buy the ones with self healing fliter patches imho.

I've used oven bags and they just got too weakened in the PC and were a huge pain in the ass. I've come to the conclusion that $.35/bag for the quality bags from mycobag is the way to go. The slight difference in cost between this and your method is probably worth it with respect to the effort in creating them, and the mycobag's reusability.

Heck, just stop by a FedEx office and pick up some free Tyvek envelopes.

But it doesn't stick to PP bags. :mad:

VERY interesting!

if it doesn't stick to PP, why not sandwich silicone between two piecies of tyvek, seal up the sandwich (heat sealer or just plain glue), and then glue this sandwich-patch onto the PP, so it's only the bottom tyvek layer of the sandwich that makes contact w/ the PP. Or is this what you are doing.

Either way, expand on your ideas - I'm loving it.
