Fruiting in garage (just wonderin')
    #4603648 - 08/31/05 02:36 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Im about to start my first crop in a few years. Im thiking about doing the whole process in an old garage but in past experiences ive lost crops to cotams when fruiting in a garage. Would moving the casing trays inside be better or is their another step i could take to protect the crops from cotams in a dirty enviroment such as a garage. I was also wondering about cold shocking, because ive heard mixed things, and if anyone has any random tips about ccasing or fruiting please feel free to post your tip. I will be using the Shroom Wizards(PF) meathod because its simple and it has worked before.

first off don't use the Shroom Wizards method...

I see alot of horror stories from people that use his method.

---

Clean your garage out and use filtered air exchange if you have had problems in the past in your garage.

making a fruiting chamber with sealed lid...and filtered air is the only way to go...IMHO

You may want to try the  Double Tub Tek . I think it would work well in your case, being that it would minimize the exposure to possible contams. GL dude! :thumbup:

IMO, If you were to do it in a garage I would suggest setting up a table with clear plastic covering the whole table and have it suspended over the table like a tent and seal it.
For air exchage there is a couple of options like a Poor Man's Pod with the air pumps in filtered boxes so they only put out clean air, or set up a small hepa with the outlet air going into the sealed fruiting chamber via hoses or ducting of some sort.
To get into it I would just cut a vertical section of the plastic and overlap it and tape it till I need to get in. In a garage you might have a problem controlling temps.

For ease and cleanliness I suggest doing it inside in a closet or an unused bedroom or bathroom.

Many have found flaws in the Shroom Wizard's tek. The PF tek isnt that difficult,,, This may help... http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23588

Take care n be safe...

Foo gave you some really good advice...

using the double tub tek might be a very good way for you to stop contams...in that garage of yours.

Oh, one more thing about that tek is that you don't HAVE to use a huge container like it says. I tested it with small 12qt containers and it worked pretty well. Here is a pic of the second flush:







It's no "Sea of Shrooms", but I thought it was pretty good for my first attempt with the tek. I cased mine too soon and I'm pretty sure it affected the flush sizes. Make sure if you do the tek that you wait until it is BRIGHT WHITE with myc. It will pay off in the end :thumbup:

I used the Shroom Wizards tek...It actually worked for me but it contams usually about when your first flush is coming up :tongue2:
Other than that its the worse tek on the internet :smirk:
