spawn bags question
    #4269445 - 06/07/05 10:04 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Can you use the bags that you get for the vacuum sealers to PC WBS or rye in. Maybe wrap it in a towel or something. They seem pretty thick to me. Maybe someone knows of a way to rig one with a filter patch. That would be great. THanks folks for all the help.

Think  an oven bag would be better. Always can try to find out. Be sure to rap in towel. Not only will the will the towel keep the bag from touching the sides but will also make cleaning up from a melt down a little easyer.

Why not just buy the damn spawn bags with filter patches online? They are like about 30 to 50 cents a piece or something and you can buy as little as 10 at a time.

Yeah, I know, but getting the right shit also saves time. If you use some make-shift crap and have contamination set in, how much time did you save? Believe me I've been down that road too. It can really suck bad when you smell that sweet bacterial bloom. The thought of that smell just makes me feel ill because I've been there and done that one too many times. When you've had a few years or decades growing experience under your belt, you might see waiting a few extra days for the right bags a little bit differently. I am just trying to help.

To answer you question about the food saver bags - they will not work in a pressure cooker well. Those bags you see are made of Polyethylene which has a relatively low melting temperature and will not withstand pressure cooking. Normal spawn bags are made of polypropylene which has a much higher melting temperature than regular polyehylene. To learn more about the materials used in popular spawn bags look at this site:
