Birdseed Observations
    #585819 - 03/22/02 12:26 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

well thus far (1 hr into) birdseed i like it already, just looking at almost a whole quart of substrate gets me going. after i pc'd the quart i took it out at once and shook it, its pretty broken up, only small clumps as i shake but i do have a little.....residue on the bottom, i heard this was normal but i was wondering if it would be considered uncolonized substrate when the jar is done, as the mycelium will not be able to penetrate it. also i have seen pictures of birdseed jars that are supposed to be done and there are small spots where there looks to be no myc... can you takje out birdseed when it is not all the way done? also one more quick question, to knock up a quart of birdseed what would you say the minimum amt of 1/2 pint brf cakes would be? and can i dunk them in peroxide?

thanks, ParticleMan

alright, forget all that.......all i really want to know is can i put my BRF cakes in peroxide to lessen contams while doing my BRF - Grain transfer?

i read a little in another thread that touched slightly on it...hinting that peroxide slows growth sometimes and may cause wet spots.....are they talking about bacterial contams????

since peroxide only kills NEW contams that have not started to grow....it would kill all the contams in transfer....hopefully.....and as long as there are not contams in my cake i would be golden right???

i plan on using the garbage bag method, spray it out, use sterile tools inside.....

i dont think they are contaminated, but when doing a transfer i thought it might save a little worry later on. breaking up the cake and just having it out in the open puts me on edge. i figure if i can get away with extra sterility, why not do it. i hate getting like 2 weeks into something and realizing its contamed.

anyway.....i read a deal about h2o2 that said it would stop anything else from growing, but allow anything that is existing to live

oh well, i already gave it a shot without it and we'll see :-)
