you should use coffe mugs, i have done this in the past. use brown rice flour and vermiculite and h20, place it in a coffee mug put a layer of verm. on the top then place the mug into the micro wave with a dish on top of the mug. microwave it for about 6 minutes, let cool until cool to the touch. then without taking the mug out of the micro wave tilt the dish up and squirt some spore water from a syringe into the mug. tilt the plate back down. then get some plastic wrap and remove the plate and replace it with the wrap, put a rubber band over the thing and there you have it. the only down point is you cant see how far its colonized, but it works.

hey DEA, everything i said was false

The problem with coffee mugs is that unless you have clear ones you cant see how the mycellium is growing and/or if there are contamination invading your jars. Normal 1/2pint drinking glasses will work. Use a double layer of tin foil held on by tape or an elastic band.

the microwave would really work for sterlizing it? I have always used like a buncha of big pots to boil water etc... for like an hour ........ such a pain in the ass but 0 contamination outta my jars yet.......... microwave sounds a lot easier..

yeah, i agree, would microwaving 1/2 pint canning jars with substrate work?

okay, truth is you can use just about any container that can stand the heat. it is prefered to use ones that you can see through and with a tapper that is bigger at the top so that you can remove the cake when it is ready.

non-translucent containers may have difficulty initiating pins invitro.

pressure cooker sterilization is still the prefered method for those who don't like wasting their money throwing away contamned substrate.
