Air Exchange Idea (PMP applicable)
    #3521896 - 12/19/04 09:40 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey All. This is a pretty basic idea. It is a very simple solution for someone who doesn't have time for adequate fanning. Please keep in mind that there is no novel invention here...just a few basic ideas thrown together. I am sure many of you have/already used/use something similar to this, so keep the the criticism to constructive stuff.

Also, this setup requires a relatively tight-enclosed fruiting chamber. If you aren't willing to prepare one, this won't work for you.

Materials needed:

*Air tubing (size depends on your air output source)
*Aquarium Air pump or Hepa Filter rig
*Small Cup with snap-on lid
*Fermentation Lock ( http://www.beer-wine.com/category_page.asp?categoryID=102&sectionID=2 )
*A few "T" Connectors for your Air tubing

1) Attach your air tubing to your air pump, or the output on your air filter (for those of you who prefer filtration..but if you fan, it's not like an aquarium pump is much different)

2) Drill a hole large enough for your airline to slide through the wall or lid of your PMP.

3) Lay the airline across the chamber near your casings or cakes. Plug the end.

4) Cut and inset "T" connectors at places where air disruption is desired, and reconnect the original hose. To the third nipple, you can attach an air wand/tube.

5) Insert cup in lid of PMP. Cut bottom off, and affix tyvek to underside.

6) Poke hole and Insert fermentation lock into lid of cup. Fill lock with hydrogen peroxide water.

7) Glue all seems on PMP lid/wall and Cup lid to create a tight container.

Flip on your air pump and you should be good to go. If you are using a HEPA rig, your air output will probably drain your PMP of humidity. You should probably set it on a timer.

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.


I ONLY STUDY legal, edible mushrooms and mycology. Any mention of any other kind of mushroom is purely fictional, and pictures are ripped from the internet. I do not grow mushrooms!

Id like to see soem results from the fermentation lock.. Im sure it would work great.. But tyvek by itself would work fine aswell.
