Casing Tray Material?
    #945366 - 10/09/02 12:31 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I recently made a casing so I used the handiest thing I could find to put it in. It turned out to be a breadpan, I'm wondering if the metal it's made out of could pose a problem?

The pan should work out, but I have seen mycelium eat through aluminum pans. Nevertheless, I still use aluminum pans because they're cheap, easy to find, and often come with a domed, plastic cover.

Peace

But it's not aluminum, it's metal.

It's not the pan I'm worried about, it's just I'm wondering if it could rust and the mushrooms would concentrate the rust.. Or something bad?

Aluminum is metal.

All right, it's steel or heavy gauge sheet metal or something. I'm not quite sure. But it's showing signs of rusting on the lip where the lid touches and the humidity condenses.

The rust probably won't hurt the mushrooms, but your pan won't last if it's sitting there rusting away unchecked.  Try something that doesn't corrode next time especially if it's going to be in a moist environment.  Keep in mind that you are allowed to use common sense sometimes... :wink:

Peace

Heh, the pan was going to be thrown out anyway.  I'll keep the common sense bit in mind though, thanks!  :cool:
