Hi I would like to know if anyone has had great success without a pressure cooker and if they did what methods did they use for sterilization. Thanks

You can steam them in a large pot with a tight lid for an hour (pf tek). Many newbies have good luck with that the first time.

I have had great success boiling in a large crabpot for 30 minutes, then inoculating the jars over a warm oven door.

When you are talking about a tight lid some steam is coming out or no steam is coming out at all?

I've been growing shrooms now fo about 2 1/2 months now and have experienced great sucess without using a pressure cooker.

Out of about a hundred 1/2 pint jars I've innoculated only seven have fallin ill with contaminents. I believe this didn't have anything to do with not having a pressure cooker though. I added far to much water to my brown rice flour/ vermiculite substrate and originally had my lids with rubber seal down so I undid them and flipped them over in an attemp to dry the jars out. It was only these jars that contaminated.

I'm pretty sure it would be fair to say that you would be better off with a pressure cooker but if you can't find one or can't get up the money, (thier pricey) I wouldn't let anybody bust your balls about it.

If you go with a regular pot just be sure you have the water half way up the sides of the jars, keep on a low boil for a least an hour and make sure the lid is on securley not letting excessive steam escape and you should be alright.

Good Luck, Hollywood

Get an 8 quart pressure cooker from walmart for $60. It's worth it. There's nothing worse then spending hours making substrate and inoculating and shit just to have all the jars fail because of improper steralization.
