Mycobags for use on bulk subs.?
    #893343 - 09/19/02 12:34 PM (19 years, 12 days ago)

I have been growing on bulk substrate(straw).  I am using extra light powdered malt extract and quart jars currently.  I have been thinking about using the myco bags instead of the jars of malt extract for several reasons.  The main reason being contamination.  I have been looking around and have seen various styles of myco bags....mycomania makes a few different styles which contain different mediums in each bag.  My question is can I use a mycobag to grow out my mycelium, and then in turn transfer the mycelium from the bag to the bulk substrate?  Thanks :confused:

Actually, I'm not sure what you're doing with the malt extract. Are you growing the mycelium in a malt solution? I don't think the bags will work well for this purpose. Plus, I don't really think the bags are any more contaminant resistant than a jar with a filter.

I am using the malt extract in the jars with 2 cups of water as a liquid innoculum. I am letting the mycelium grow out in and then pouring it over my wheat straw. The contamination will be less because the bags come presterilized....now stop me if I am wrong...but the pre sterilized bags will cut down on my work and most of the contamination risks. I know that the contamination risks are pretty much equal once the jars or bags have been innoculated but I am referring to all the steps that go into the process before I inoculate the jars with spores.

No I had no specific "tek" or "recipe" working. I am just doing what I have learned from the "bible" of all mycology books(Stamets indoor mushroom cultivation)and what I have read on here. It is more a combination of different peoples ideas and what not. I am using a perlite base with straw layered on top with a casing layer also taken out of stamets book.
