(edit) Finally got 8 qt PC...goodbye steam, hello shrooms
    #4446676 - 07/24/05 02:01 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I just got a 6 qt pressure cooker made by Manttra, and it doesn't specify what the max psi is. It lists in the instructions that food should be brought to 12 psi but that's all it says. Any info? And if the max is 12, will that suffice or at least be better than the steaming method? This is like the 4th time I went out today returning stuff and I'd hate to have to go back out AGAIN and return this too. I know it's small but I'm fine with doing 1-2 jars at a time as long as they're sterile in the end.

Well, I'm a stubborn perfectionsist, so I went out AGAIN and got the Mirro pressure cooker 8qt unit.  Now I finally feel complete :smile:  All the right tools to get the job done.

That works out great, I planned on doing 3 WBS substrates inoculated with Hawaiian. Can you use the rack that came with it to set the jars on? It doesn't look like it's high enough off of the bottom of the PC to prevent cracking. Has anyone had any success using it?

It works fine.

As a scientific principle, as long as they don't touch the bottom they're O.K.

LOL! I just went to walmart and bought the same exact PC'er!
Just now cleaned it out. Seems like its all there (had to take first one back for missing parts).

I cant wait to PC my jars tomorrow! No more using 4 boiling pots with 2 jars each. Although I need to read up on PC's before I do that. I have no idea how to work it. Seems fairly simple though.

Good luck man.  :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

By the way, where did you pick up your quart jars? I found 1/2 and 1 pint jars. But no quart ones where I checked.

Thats for sure. PC'ing is the most time consuming activity in this hobby. And the thing you do most. I can do in one run what it used to take three. :grin:

More me time now,lol.

Yeah, but it's nice to be able to get what you need to get started at Wally World for only $40 at least.

I hope to up-grade PCs soon.

That one is huge, I dunno if I'd want one so big, 41 qts it would cover the whole stove lol. I was thinking of the 30 qt one.

I'm just glad I can be sure my jars are sterile...a lot of hesitation in the steaming method!

Wouldn't 3 quarts be plenty for a nice full flush of shrooms?

I HOPE so, LOL. I just placed 3 casings, 3 quarts WBS each, in my greenhouse. I've never fruited any grain. Went straight from cakes to poo, thanks Agar :grin:

Had trouble getting poo, no rain in a month or more. So I thought I'd give it a try. Always something new to try :thumbup:. One of the reasons I  :heart: this Hobby soo much. Can't wait to see what it does. Did a couple cakes cased, they did real well.
