CARLITO's Bag Recipe: im having one of those moments...
    #5884981 - 07/21/06 06:39 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Im trying out Wronguy's bag recipe and its been three days and there is hardly anything colonizing. so i started to wonder why...

well, apperently its not in wronguys version above, but in some other version of the same recipe i read, the ingredient list said:

16 1/2 cups of uncooked WBS. (for measurments sake?)

i think i took this the wrong way. didnt cook my WBS, i just mixed it up dry. JESUS, come to think, i didnt even rinse it off...
i thought it might soak up a little water while PCing or something, i dont know.

Is this the problem? im i retarded?

it would only be appropiate for this grow, followed by this

i think im losing my fucking mind...

Well, it wouldn't be any dumber than shit I've done myself. Don't beat yourself up about it. Hell, I recently threw out a full casing because I thought it was "bad" when it now appears likely I was just listening to some really depressing tunes (Harrowdown Hill, specifically).

That's pretty dumb. =)

But if you didn't soak the WBS, it doesn't have anywhere near the moisture that the spores need to grow and thrive on. It's basically a loss.

I'd start over.

i just inspected my bags and it does seem like the WBS soaked up a significant amount of water during the PC run. i could squish the millet/milo between my fingers, it felt like my preppared WBS, maybe a little drier. but isnt drier better for spawning? i thought that was the idea of not cooking it...

Well, ...if you don't mind possibly wasting the spores, go for it.

If they smoosh between your fingers, that's pretty much the consistency I look for. I'm kinda stunned that's what you're seeing from a PC only, though...

you cook the bags for 3 hours, so all the moisture in the poo/verm steams up the bag. its like steaming rice.

im not sure that dry WBS is my problem, im waiting for a vet to swing down and clarify the tek for me.

well if it does not look overly wet then give it a go. what have you got to lose unless you have no more LC or spores. which if thats the case I am sure shroomery members will just send you a print. We need pics to even get this thing off the ground

i dont know what youre talking about. i knocked up 6 bags with 1000cc of LC, and i have gallons more. im not trying save the bags, i just want to know if im reading the recipe correctly...

as for the bags not being autoclavible,
AGAR was the one that told me to get them

though, he recommended the 3mil, i went for the 2 mil because im a jewish bastard. but i dont think it will make a difference, right....

oh shit. 
the title of that thread was "autoclavable bags"
but it was actually about pasturizing... not PCing
:sad:

*OMNI breathes deep. takes a peek at the primordia inside the monotubs.more breathing* 

i have fucked up sooo many times this week, i think i was over doing it. i spent over 50 hours last weekend working on various parts of this hobby.  and always too :blazed:

or maybe you are all wrong. :cool:

Yeah... those bags will most likely melt in your PC... 2 mil is fine... You can get them at medical supply websites.

Here's 200 for 40 bucks: http://www.bettercontainers.com/autoclave.htm

Sorry, but you _DID_ waste your money, most likely. You can try a trial run... Put one of your bags in a pint jar and PC for however long you were going to pc your bags.

But autoclave bags are at least .002 inch polypropeylene.

Anyways, sorry to bum you out! Hopefully your bag in pint jar test works (wont get your pc messy).

.002 inches is 1/2millimeter, so thats even thinner than what ive got. these are poly bags as well. ill just have to PC one and settle this. i bet if i sent it back missing a bag, no one would know, naughty.

and now it all makes complete sense. that always confused me, i thought mil was short for millimeter... but that obviously didnt make sense. i just chalked it up to conspiracy and reveled in my ignorance.
double damn.

:P who would have thought that mil meant thousandth of an inch!? haha... (mil = thousandth) ie... MILlimeter (thousandth of a meter), MILligram (thousandth of a gram), etc, etc.

Just normal for the good ole american measurment system to rip off something and just shorten it to mil, when it should be something like... millinch... Oh wait, THAT's why they don't call it a millinch!!! Because it sounds almost as stupid as it looks. haha, millinch, oh man, i crack myself up.

as for your original question about the wbs...


you did it correct.

the number one problem you will face is your substrate being too wet.

make sure it is on the drier side and you will be fine.
