Good old radiation?
    #402566 - 09/24/01 01:03 PM (22 years, 12 days ago)

I tried an experiment where instead of using a pressure cooker to pasteurize my casing material, I used a microwave. Glad makes some really nice microwave/freezer bags that did the trick. I put a 2 quart bag in the microwave for roughly 15 minutes then allowed it 4 hours to cool. I've seen no contamination in my casings, however the mycelium hasn't done anything in about two weeks. I can actually dig down through the top layer of casing material (50/50 peat/vermiculite, crushed oyster shell, bit of lime) and find the original chunks of mycelium exactly the same as when they started. Do you think the microwave did something to the casing to prevent further growth?

you should wait i ca somtimes ake a while for it to over take he casing layer dependin on how much mycleium you use and how deep your casing layer u used, and oher factors,
if you put more the 1/2 inch of caseing you could try to remove some of it. The radiation from them micro wave have nothinto do with it, just as long as you let it cool be fore you addded your mycleium.

The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.

Casings that don't colonise are usually too wet.

When the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem begins to look like a nail.
