Spawnbags without flowhood :)
    #4179281 - 05/15/05 07:38 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

hey!

so as i just did a bag or two i thought about sharing my way of doing
spawnbgs without a flowhood and without impulse sealing them with quite good success.

note: basically, when working without a flowhood / glovebox and spawning bags
in "open air" your chances of getting contams along the way is quite high,
this is just an idea oh how to minimize (in my experience dramatically minimize though)
the percentage of contammed bags.

first of, we need to prepare grains for the bags or whatever you want to fill them
with, see my spawnbags preperation pictorial for how i do my grain mix
or shearch the shroomery for preperation of different media.
spawnbag pictorial: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3840489/Main/3777212/an/0/page/0

anyways, once you got the bag prepared the way as in the spawnbag pictorial,
namely secured the tops with the autoklaveable tape:
---> -->

you sterilize them and let them cool over night.
in my experiences, especially when doing large bags, it can take up to 15 hours
for them to completely cool.
if your unsure and want to be on the same side, just let the cooker stand around
for a day before you open it.

anyways lets get on.

you need a jar of spawn (dont say heh):


now its time to  prepare some h2o2 solution.
for this purpose i like to use some rather highly concentrated h2o2.
after shaking the jar up properly and seperating the individual kernels,
you inject 5cc of h2o2 into the jar and again shake the hell out of it to
coat the grains with the h2o2.

now, when removing the bag, you can easily unfold it and roll it up
and this is where the beauty comes in, the autoklaveable tape dont let air in when you roll it up.

now you easily pull the fold of the bag apart slowhly and fold the inner side back which will be an easy task as the tape will let lose quite easily.

now just open as much as needed and pour in the spawn, twist the whole bag
till down to the filterpatch hard and secure the twist with tape.

nowbend the whole thing over again and secure again.
et voila, knead in kernels to distribute evenly amonng substrate and there you go :laugh:


this way i used bags up to 5 times without any probs,
its economic and i usually just get one of 5 bags to contam.

additional photos will follow soon!
peace ohm :mushroom2:

for taping up the bags, is that one piece of wide tape at the top of the bag folded over on itself?

I know I saw a reference to this somewhere else, but where does the autoclavable tape come from...is it actual autoclave tape as in the kind that changes color? Any idea how well plain old masking tape holds up?
