Mycobag mystery
    #4125383 - 05/02/05 11:09 PM (12 years, 26 days ago)

My friend has recently PC'd a rather large mycobag full of brf/verm and he's wondering why whenever he pressure cooks a mycobag after taking the lid off the Pressure Cooker why the bag is all thinned out and stretched and bloated with air and if this is still safe from contams or not? Every attempt with mycobags has lead to this weird effect on the bags, is he PCing too long? Or is it a poor quality autoclaveable bag or anything like that? And has anyone else experienced this..? Thanks.

is he sealing the bag shut before PCing? If it's all puffed up, then the steam in the bag is not able to escape while PCing. I think your suposed to just fold the top of the bag over and clamp with a clothes pin or something, then seal the bags after you've PCed.

And yes, just foling the bag a closing afterwards would suffice too....

Sweet, nice link, thanks. My friend was just confused because he's tried both methods and even saw a tek where in the tek the person was sealing the bags before hand and had no problems, but yes my friend was sealing them before PCing which was obviously the problem. Thanks!

You can seal them before pc'ing. Just don't do anything to speed up the pressure loss after the cycle. If you pop the weight off to let the steam out, you'll blow up the bags like a baloon and ruin them. Simply turn off the stove when the time is expired and walk away. Allow the pc to cool on the stove burner slowly. The bags should be ok. Be sure to have something on top of the bags so the loose plastic doesn't get against the vent hole and stop it up.
