Popcorn Question
    #4049162 - 04/13/05 07:13 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Using the popcorn tek, I've noticed that it's turned into a cake, and can't be spread out onto a vermiculite layer for casing. I was looking at this http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23805 and was wondering if there was a way to break it up in the jar, and spread out? If that's not an option, and I need to use the info in the link above, I was wondering if I just use the sandwich bag right out of the box, or if I'm supposed to sterilize it in someway? Any help would be highly appreciated.

I would boil up a knife and cut it up while still in the jar. Have you tried to really shake it up hard, with sudden jolts?

no dont shake it really hard that might damage the mycelium too much.... take it out of the jar and pout it into a sandwhich bag and break it up inside the bag

Bang the jar against a fully inflated tire a few times to completely break it up into individual kernels. Then, simply pour it out into your tray.

I'll try this first, but if it doesn't work, does anyone know if you're supposed to just dump it straight in the bag?

I sterilize a large spoon...and just spoon it out of the jar.
