Steaming and Inoculation questions
    #592253 - 03/28/02 08:06 PM (22 years, 29 days ago)

i plan on sterilizing my jars by boiling them in a pot for an hour. does the size of the pot matter at all? the pot will hold about six 1/2 pint jars, but i wasnt sure if the heat would break the jars in that small of a pot.
Do i leave the holes in the lids open during steaming or put tape on them? the jars wont explode with tape on them?
After steaming while the jars are cooling and waiting for inoculation, is it better to leave the tape on or take it off?

When i am inoculating my 10 jars, do i have to sterilize the needle of the syringe with a flame everytime i do a jar?
How far down in do i put the needle into the jar? Do i actually penetrate the BRF and verm. or do i just put the tip of the needle on the inside lip of the jar and let it run down the sides?

why? did i say something wrong? let me guess, i need to go back and read the teks...well i keep reading them and they arent all the same, so i get confused and i just find it easier to come to the forum and ask you guys cause you all seem to know so much about all of this

Ok, noone's took it yet so here goes, lecture free.
1)as far as I know, the size of the pot doesn't matter. Just
keep the jars up off the bottom.
2) tape the holes, leave lids loose
3)leave the tape on, snug the lids
4)some do, I don't. no problems yet
5)past the verm, against the glass
6)yes, penetrate the substrate
If teks conflict with each other, stick to this one:  http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_mmgg.shtml 
Hope that helps. :peace:

When in doubt, stick to the PF tek as closely as possible. Then you can look at other teks.

I almost used the link for the PF tek ( www.fanaticus.com )
but when I started, I read the PF Tek four times and still had
questions. I asked PF. He basically said "buy the new book"
Then I found the MMGG (Magic Mushroom Growers Guide)
which filled in the missing details. But I did't know about the
shroomery back then.

Can you tell me if it is better to use a short forcefull burst when injecting spores or a long slow stream?

Oops, should I have posted that in advanced? ...lolzzz

I wouldn't think it would make much difference. But I would
suggest watching the plunger cross the cc marks until you
get a feel for how much it takes per hole or you might run low
on spore water too soon. If this does happen, try to catch it
early and draw up some sterile water, and shake it. If you
can see spores at all, it shouldn't hurt it a bit. Just try not to
let the spores settle to the needle and go out on the first few
jars. Hope that helps. :peace:
