moisture content for WBS in bags
    #4074554 - 04/19/05 10:47 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I hate jars. Got the bags in a few days ago. Excited.
I hate using the grocery store's coffee grinder to grind brown rice into flour. (wtf is that guy doing...now our coffee will taste funny)

Excited about using WBS in my spawnbags.

I can't seem to find a good recommendation on how much water to allow into the final WBS mixture that goes into the bag.
Lets assume I'll soak the WBS overnight, but not simmer it.

Once the WBS is drained, is it good to go into the spawnbag for autoclaving or does additional water need to be added? How hard should I squeeeeeeeeeez the water out, how much can stay in the seed?

Watch me use zip-ties instead of buying an impulse sealer.

Is it acceptable to use spores to colonize large spawnbags or is G2G a must?

Soak it for 24 hours or so--until it stops expanding.  Don't simmer.  Just dry it and load it into the bag and PC.  :wink:

Do what Agar says!! I just tried that meathod (Frist time WBS user here too!) and it seems pretty solid. Although I just inoculated today!
