Make your own C02 for long term storage (Pictorial)
    #3598767 - 01/08/05 04:06 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Here is a quick and easy way to make your own C02 for long term storage. As mentioned in the last page of the 9er Tek, one can make their own C02 with easy to obtain ingredients. I wrote this up as a means to show everyone how easy this is to do at home.

All you need is:

Baking Soda
Vinegar
Container with inward taper (you'll see why)

Pour a small pile of baking soda in your tapered container, then when ready pour a bit of vinegar on top. You'll see the solution bubble up, this is the chemical reaction and C02 is being produced.



Now pour the C02 into your jar with dried goodies. This is why I like to use a tapered jar, it keeps the solution from pouring out when held horizontal. Work quickly and pour out the invisible C02 into your storing container. It should only take 2-3 seconds, since C02 is heavier than air it will pour out quickly.



That's it, now put your retainer ring and lid on rubber side down and you have a long term storage solution. I've heard that shrooms will keep for years and years like this, I have yet to try it for myself.

As a side test, I poured C02 into an empty canning jar, and sealed it. It sat for 2 weeks, and I finally opened it. Taking the lid off and bringing a match to the opening, it went out almost immediately. This shows that there was no loss of C02 after 2 weeks whatsoever in a sealed jar.

What about taking a candle, putting a glas over till it goes out.

That would also fill a jar with co2?

plenty of it...

Carbon dioxide is a molecular solid with a molecular formula CO2. The linear
molecule consists of a carbon atom that is doubly bonded to two oxygen atoms, O=C=O.

So would it be a good idea to put all of the mushies on the bottom?

it would be a better idea to use nitrogen but Carbon Dioxide is acceptable.

This would be great if it could some-how be incorperated into the dehydration process. Use a full tank of CO2 from soad machines! Might also just be a waste of money doing that. CO2 isn't cheap, ask the guys at www.plantedtank.net forums, they use CO2 to make thier plants grow fast by adding it to the water.

ive been grinding up my shrooms into powder and putting them into small glass jars, like 1/2oz fits in there, thats how small. anyway, i then put those jars into a jar of honey. i dont want my shrooms to get all sticky and taste that way so i figure this way should still work on keeping the ox out. any thoughts on this? thinking of mb starting new thread on this but figured ild just add it here.

its pointless, the reason for the honey is to make the shrooms more palatable,
placing the shrooms in a jar that has air in it and then placing that jar into
one filled with honey does nothing but make a big mess, put the powder in gel
caps and the jelcaps in a vacuum container, suck the air out and then place
that in the fridge. less mess and you can save the honey for tea

I paid $80 for a 20lb bottle of co2 for a sheilding gas, after that I was paying
about $12 to get it filled, check welding supply houses.

a 20oz tank will last you a little while... buying them is pretty expensive
but refills are cheap. you save tons if you buy a large tank

I work at a convention center that has loads of large CO2 tanks. I play paintball as well and asked them if I could purchase one for a fill station. Checked the other day and they let me have one, and they refill it for free. How awesome is that?! I'll definitely try this tek soon!

i was under the impression that the honey tek was about long term preservation, not taste. wouldnt honey prevent o2 from entering?
