alcohol in water
    #3948721 - 03/21/05 02:01 PM (12 years, 4 days ago)

If I put alcohol in the perlite water, will it have bad affects on my mushrooms?

My search only told me about using alcohol to sterilize.

Quite possibly. Hydrogen peroxide or maybe iodine would be better.

My 2 cents. Use peroxide if you plan to ever put your cakes directly on the perlite. If you always use lids like me, or have some sort of rack in your chamber, use a very small amount of bleach. I put a tablespoon in a gallon of water, and end up using half of that water to hydrate my perlite. Then I shake the perlite around vigorously to spread out the bleach. I have only been growing a few months now, but I have yet to lose a cake to contam once it gets to the fruiting chamber.
