Microwave Steralization Q!
    #545517 - 02/09/02 03:27 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

If someone was to put the mixed substrate in a jar with a paper towel covering the top (without the metal lid on, of course!) in a microwave and zap for 8 minutes...would he have to add extra water to account for the moisture that would be lost from it being zapped so long? No plastic lids!

Yes...but you'll have to experiment to find the exact amount. If you're using pf tek, it'll be a lot easier just to use a big pot and steam the jars.

A small experiment I just ran, 1 PF style jar prepared and microwaved.
You can discuss the results.

Anno,
I love reading your experiments. You are a master. I also love when you post pics. Even if I was from the non shroom world I would appreciate your professionalism. In my opinion you and Workman should conspire together and write a book.

The key to (successfull??) microwave sterilisation is to have an another water source in the microwave besides the water in the jars and turning the powewr back once the water is boiling.
I?m rather sceptic on how good the sterilisation is, I?ll run some more trials soon.
For all of you who want to try it, the metfod in the Grow/Find section has some potential, perhaps somebody wants to give it a try and report on results.

I?d turn the power back once the water in the outer container is boiling just to keep it boiling a lttle for 8-10 minutes.

Perhaps the one who is going to try this method can weigh the jars before and after microwaving to see how much water has been lost this way.
