impulse sealing mycobags

Recommended Posts

tomentose

i would like to know if anybody has any tips on using a impulse sealer to seal the bags before putting them in the PC for grain spawn use, they are large sized bags with a .2 micron filter patch, i am using this type of sealer 61RsNbOYwyL._SY355_.jpg.39efdb96535c86c8d1055470e2e83b95.jpg

The specifications state it produces a 10mm wide seal

Thanks!

You can't preseal .2 micron bags. They will explode.

Would .5 microns bags work for spawn? And thank you that is a very valuable tip!

.5 is fine. It doesn't let anything in that I've experienced.

I've used .5 micron bags for years for grain and also fruiting in the bags, I've never had any problems with tams or especially bugs getting in.

I've never heat sealed my bags either. I fold down the top of the bag 3 times to the top of the patch and use binder clips on each end to secure it.

lol, bugs get in..     All ive used in the past 4 years is .5 micron filter patch bags to pc my substrate, they work great..  after i use a bag 3 times i put micropore tape over the filter patch & use it 2 more...  that costs me around $.20 per bag per run..  much cheaper and better then turkey bags

IME i would not recommend letting things set around in a .5 micron bag for more then 3-4 day, i feel like it starts to dry out a little bit

I wasnt planning on using them for substrate just for spawn though

@magicman do you innoculate or do agar/g2g transfer when you use the for spawn? it sounds perfect for g2g. I wanted to make some sealed sterilized bags to innoculate from multispore ..but if its easier in the end to knock up a jar with the multispore then transfer into the clipped bags  ill do that

I inoculate grain bags with LC, agar wedges or MS vendor syringes (if I'm waiting for LC to grow). G2G with a colonized bag to other bags is tricky unless you have a big ass FH. I would colonize grain jars, then use those to G2G to grain bags.

I prefer to use LC as my inoculant, made by dropping an agar wedge in the LC. If you put a SHIP on the filter patch you can noc them in open air with LC or MS, and re-use the same bag several times with the same SHIP on the filter patch.

      You gotta pick those fruits immeadiatly then. You’ll be ok, as long as you haven’t used chlorinated/ flouridated tap water (it’s a destroyer in my experiences). If it’s pure water , let that water soak in for a few hours or so, then do your best to carefully dump it out.Maybe lean the tub on end for a bit.  I always recase my subs with  fresh 50/50 Casing Layer, because I’ve washed away my prior casing with my Dunk process.

      Thank you Phish!!!!  I may have of fucked it all up by dousing the whole thing with water already 😂😂😂😂😂 I'm letting a pretty high powered fan blow into the tank rn.

      Keep an eye on those fruits and pick them when the veils begin to break. Likely within the next day or so. Don’t expect any more pins on your first flush. That’s it.  Mushrooms are 90-92% water weight. A heavy flush will leave a sub depleted of moisture and drier than a popcorn fart. You, my friend, don’t need to be concerned with that with this flush. I would do exactly like MZ says with the spray bottle on that sub. That sub should have a lotta Wooooo left to go 😉👍

      So yesterday I injected them and now I guess it's a waiting game. Is it cool if they just chill on my shelve? Also does the dark/light thing really matter? They will probably be in the dark 80% of the time in the closet. Temp in here is 72. I'll mix the myc at 30% and 70% then once fully colonized I'll mix it with the substrate in the bag. Then move to a monotub to fully colonize. Then throw a cs on top 1/4th . Same one in the bulk tutorial. Think itll work?
