Eberbach containers at fungi perfecti
    #814447 - 08/13/02 08:46 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone ever been to Fungi Perfecit and seen those Eberbach containers. Supposedly you can dump a whole petri dish worth of colonized agar in there and it will blend it up into a nice potent mycelial liquid for you, and then you can make some bad ass mycelium syringes!!! Would anyone recommend getting one of these or is there a "homemade" way of doing it? Thanks!!!!

Well, the laboratory ones can be autoclaved while sealed, while your average blender can't. You could probably 'ghetto' it and use a coffee grinder - you'd just have to work REALLY cleanly and in a glove box or in front of a flowhood.

I was shocked at the price of an eberbach container so I did some research...
I have an old blender with removable base ring, blade assembly and rubber gasket...
Once removed I discovered that it fits your regular canning jar mouth perfectly...
I just fill a quart container full of water, put the gasket on, blade assembly and screw the blender base on top...loosely of course...
Sterilize for 30 minutes, put pressure cooker in lab (in front of flow hood), and open when cool....
I have been using this for over a year and have only lost one batch to contamination...
Let me know if this helps ya...I know it saved me $500....

Most blenders can have ball jars screwed on instead of the glass
container.I tried a 4 oz jelly jar, it fit perfect.I didn't run the blender,
because it said not to do this in the instructions.

Well I still haven't heard anyone say anything particulary good or bad about these. Do they work? Are they worth looking into?

They work, but are very expensive. The main reason to get one is because you can autoclave the entire thing to sterilize it. A blender has plastic parts that tend to melt in an autoclave. You can make one using a blender base and a canning jar (quart size) though you still have the problem with the plastic melting in the autoclave. If you really want one, look on ebay or labx. I see them go from time to time fairly cheap (<$50 compared to $350+). When you do get one, be sure you don't over blend the mycelium. You want to blend it enough to cut it up, but not so much that you damage the cell structure. If you blend it to hell, the cells rupture and you are left with a worthless liquid that wont spawn anything.

i have been using an Oster brand blender base and blade assembly on any regular mason jar for licuid innoculant work. there's no problem sterilizing in pressure cooker.

i must report however that the jars are made of glass, and if your blending process creates a lot of pressure it may cause problems. leaving the jar only half full tends to minimize the risks of the jar exploding, as it allows air space to recieve any generated pressure.

one of my students used a mason jar with live mushrooms in it with some hydrogen peroxide. this foams and creates pressure. it was sufficient to break the jar and send the stuff all over the room. i have not had any problems, neither has my neighbor's cat.

Yes Eberbach's are cool...but they are expensive.

I saw a post of a home made one... about a year ago.
The post has been deleted.
I think the guy used a large baby food jar.....put a hole in the lid.
Used a stainless steel rod for the shaft.....welded the cutting blades onto one end.
He used small bearings on both sides of the lid.....tack welded the shaft to the bearings.
I think he used a drill for the motor to run it.

Looked great....only draw back.....you have to have access to a welding machine.

I'll probably make one!


Coming soon.... Roadkill's cheap ass Eberbach!
