No, they leak too much air. They really suck. If you want bags, use the autoclavable filter batch bags available from all fine mycology stores www.fungi.com if you don't have one in your neighborhood.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Try mine. I use wheat straw.
I submerge straw for 30 minutes underwater. I drain off the water, and insert straw into an oven bag. Pack it 3/4 of the way full. Make sure there is an inch MINIMUM of water in the bag.
Close the bag using the plastic twist tie and insert your pinkey finger. This ensures steam can escape.
Place bag in microwave and nuke for 30 minutes minimum.
As soon as your nuker goes "ding" open the microwave and spin bag closed and lay the bag on top of the twisted bag mouth. If you spray the exterior of the bag with lysol, it will virtually hermetically seal itself; ready until you use it. Best to use it as soon as it cools. Caution: bag is extremely hot after microwaving; use caution when grasping and spinning bag shut, trust me!
I prefer large styrofoam containers. I add 2 inches of straw in the bottom- not dripping wet!!! Just damp, then a thin layer of rye grain spawn.
Then a layer of straw, 1 inch thick, then thin layer of grain, etc. until 1/2 full or more. Make the last layer grain, a little thicker layer is advantageous.
Cover top layer with plastic wrap in direct contact with the substrate. after 10 days, give or take a few days, it will be virgin white. Turn it upside down, and remove the plastic, and allow any residual water to trickle out.
Case as normal; I use 10 parts peat, by volume, and 1/2 cup lme, and 2 parts PLUS water. Casing must not be so wet that when squeezed water will appear! You can always mist afterwards to saturate to optimum water holding capacity.
Oh, and by the way, I no longer sterilize my straw. I use 2 quart jars of innoculant to 1 styrofoam filled 1/2 way with just soaked straw. I rarely get contamination.
Don't believe me?
I have said this numerous times, and shown people physically, almost 40 people, one of them Ripper from the Advanced mushroom cultivation message board; he shudders every time I talk about it- but he can't deny it. He will explain it as luck, or chalk it up to clean straw, or something scientific perhaps.
I say: the more inoculant you add, the faster your substrate will be taken. That's a fact!
