myco noob - first time
    #3783327 - 02/15/05 02:29 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

hey everyone this is my first serious attempt.. ive got some burma spores and both medium and large self-healing myco bags.. and a big ass bag of rye grass seed.. got a pressure cooker that goes up to 15 psi also.

the site i was using with the technique suggests using "500 mg" of rye grass seed but i havent got my own scale so i have no way of measuring that out..

can anyone help me with their own mycobag tech that doesnt require a scale to weigh the rye?

this is my first serious attempt at this so any other helpful advice or tips on sterilization and whatnot would greatly be appreciated :mushroom2:

just fill it up to about 1/4 the way (packed) somtimes less, just give it a good look...it doesn't matter how much you use, but if you use alot, it just takes a little longer to colonize..and if your fruiting in the bag,you have to have room for them to grow..but it really doesn't matter if your casing, just whenever it colonizes 100%, case. I prefer to fruit in the bag, its damn near foolproof, just make the bag, knock its ass up, wait, shrooms...all there is. now for making the bags..just put ur grains and shit (not shit, but whatever your mixing with it) in, impact seal it shut (hell a lighter has worked for me) then PC it,10-15 psi  and inject, wait 3-4 days, should (keyword SHOULD) see myc if you dont (like me) it may take alittle longer like 5-6 days somtimes, depending on conditions (temp) but once u see the white, massage that mutha like its a tit and then let it sit, 6 days later......BOOM! pins and 100% colonization (for me)...

ps. makes sure u mix vermiculite (biggest chunks you can find..) in with the rye, and throw in some WBS if you want..it only helps..

hope this tek helped, this is what i use...

peace out,
:mushroom2:

its whatever you want to use, most people use grains (i read the mycobag site and seen what was in the grain) just make sure you go buy vericulite, those big ass gold chunks that are kinda flat, and by impact seal i mean get it shut, they make impact seelers and sell them at wal mart, it sucks all the air out and seals, i have sucuessfully used my mouth (HA) and sucked all the air out i could held it tight, and used a lighter being EXTREAMLY CAREFUL not to damage the bag too much and just melt it togather to form a seal and then i tested it, and another thing is use one of those flat hair straiteners, and rub it across after all the air is out and the ghetto lighter tek, and that should make sure it has a strong hold, then PC the little bastereds and knock em up. Simple if you follow all the steps..

that does sound like a good tech.. how much is a wal-mart sort of impact sealer.. also do you suggest i let them fruit in the bags or try to case them?

you may have better luck if you search for an impulse sealer rather than an "impact" sealer
