Filter Discs vs. Coffee Filter
    #717456 - 07/02/02 09:16 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I am going to try using whole grain as a substrate this time around and was wondering if I have to use a filter disc or can I just use a coffee filter. What is the difference in them. Thanks.

coffee filters are more pourus then filter discs. If you plan on using coffee filters then use like 3 in place of one filter disc.

You can also try polyfill. I've used it with good success so far.

You can also get synthetic filter discs used in buchner funnels for chemistry. They're not that hard to buy if you look around....both my local university and a science supply store in my city sell them.

I know this isnt what you asked....but since I cant find silica gel packs to keep dried shrooms good...I put damp-rid in coffee filters and tape them ...that keeps moisture away from the shrooms....

Filter Discs filter down to 0.3microns...coffee filter can't compare. A cheap alternative is polyfill.

i use three dry coffee filters over my jars after they are pressure cooked and inoculated. i put tape on the jars while im pressure cooking them, i let it cool, take off the tape and inoculate. then i just put the dry coffee filters over top with a rubberband. I dont have a problem with contams...i loose maybe 1-2 jars out of 12. sometimes i dont loose any.
