Pressure cooker, casing questions...
    #4010017 - 04/03/05 10:14 PM (12 years, 26 days ago)

Alright, its been quite a spell since I've posted round these parts, but i have a few questions to ask.

First off, i have a small PC that goes to 15 psi no problem, but it only fits 4 1/2 pint jars at a time. I wish I had a larger one, but whatever, I'll deal with it.
Now, Ive been growing with the PF tek for a while now, with various modifications and other experiments ive done with it. But I recently stole a 30 pound bag of popcorn from the local movie theater, so it seems as though the time is right to move on to a different substrate.

Now my first question is can I have the jars in the PC without that screen insert, just have them inside the pot? I ask this because its a pretty tight fit with the insert, and if i could go without it would work much better. So if anyone could share some insights on the matter that would be fantastic.

Another question I have is about a casing I made today. I had an extra BRF cake sitting around, it was stalled at about 95% colonized. So I birthed it, discarded all uncolonized substrate, all in a very sterile manner. Then I decided to experiment with a different casing substrate, so I layed down a 1/2 layer of verm, crumbled the cake onto that, it made a nice 1.5 inch thing myc layer. On the top of that I put a sterilized layer of 50/50 verm/cow shit.

So I'll be patient and see how that does. If any of you have a prediction for me, Im curious to hear it.

Also, could I just use an oven bag to pressure cook the popcorn? or would the PC be too much for it?

thanks a lot everyone, I'll have a grow log for all this up soon.

I think the problem with not using the bottom insert in the PC is you might burn the bottom of your jars (or perhaps just dry out the bottom too much. You could use a towel instead i think.

No screen on the bottom...Did you mean Rack?

It keeps some heat off(direct heat) off the jars, i'd use it, when i didnt :thumbdown:

Peeps use towels(socks w/e) on the bottom of pots when doing the Brf tek...And that's only boiling temps,imagine 15psi...Yea.

I'd use it...Just my .o2...Never heard of anyone Not suggesting it's use, but w/e...

Good luck

Hey. If you ever want to use your PC without the insert you should replace it with a cloth or rag. Having your jars sit directly on the bottom can cause them to crack.
As far as your casing idea, I would say it's doomed for failure. Cow shit should be used as a substrate to spawn to. When used in this manner it should be layered with a thin layer of colonized mycelium to act as a contam barrier. Poo is very nutrient rich, contam's will more than likely take hold fairly quick without some type of protective layer. You should of mixed your cake with the poo and then cased that with some type of proper casing layer.
Good Luck.

alright, one last question-

with popcorn, should i use the 4 hole lids i have from PF tek and tape them while pressure cooking, or should i go out and get some filter discs, or what?

i was going to use the lids i have with doubled foil, but a second opinion would be good.

thanks a bunch
