random spawn bag explosion in autoklave
    #3652385 - 01/20/05 07:40 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)


so i get random spawnbags exploding on me when im sterilizing them.
to give you an idea how i use them:

i fill them, try to get all the air out and twist them above substrate
layer and secure the twist with a rubberband.
then they get twisted and secured with rubberband at top aswell.
over this comes some tinfoil and an additional rubberband to hold it down.

reason for all this rubbers is that i can re-use the bags and it works
really nice.

but for example, i just unloaded 4 and one of them was popped :/
how can this happen?
sterilizing at 17psi btw.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

heres the directions from myco bag... http://www.mycobag.com/ryeseedbagtek.aspx i'm pretty sure you're not supposed to seal the tops when you PC them, you just fold em over and keep em sealed w/clothes pins.

Bring your PC to 17 psi at a slower rate. This will allow the expanding air/water vapor time to escape before internal pressure causes the bag to burst.

I'm also pretty sure it has to do with you sealing the bags when PCing. Are there filters? That would normally give way for expansion I'd think but if the filter was blocked from weight of grain that could be an issue as well. Do you put something on top of your bags to make sure they dont block the pressure guage? If not the pressure could be higher then you think as well? More likly due to sealing but we'll see what other say who use mycobags more...

Hmmz, did bag touch the bottom of PC or was the ventilationpatch blocked? Maybe with another bag on top of it?

But you give me hope again of using my bags. I got me a monster (some bags for testing) for free.
WIth twisting and rubberbands I can re-use them! :thanx:  :tongue:
