grain spawn
EASY LIDS

24 posts in this topic

These lids are great for Grain Spawn!! You can noc in open air with little risk of contam!I would not use them for LC though. If LC gets on the tyvek your LC is dead meat, so that means you cant shake it to bust up the myc,Once again Beyond2, hats off to you! Very nice tek. ;) << that one was for you!

whats the point of the tyvek if your just siliconing the center anyway with a solid lid under the tyvek and silicon over both holes essentially? JW maybe I just need a little clarification.

The silicone is a Self Healing Injector Port (SHIP). It eliminates the need for micropore tape, and just makes things easier for WBS. Dont use this tek for LC.

I get that but, wouldn't you disregard the metal lid in place of the tyvek? or does it allow a small enough gap between the lid and tyvek to allow air exchange ?

There is a hole in the lid. You do not want very much gas exchange, or evaporation. Without the lid your jars would fail.

I got it! the laws of physics would tell me the paper thin gap between the tyvek and lid is enough to allow gas exchange .

MZ would you suggest two cut outs of tyvek or is one enough? I believe I have read that you should use two slips of tyvek.

one is fine, there is no real reason for two other than belief.

Can I use these as PF Tek style jars? Only thing is the holes for PF Tek are suppose to be closer to the wall of the jar?

to be honest i really dont know, if i were to guess id say ya because they still allow gas exchange but ive never done the PF tek so maybe someone else could help em out

You can. If you use this style, you do not need the dry layer of verm, and can fill the jar up with sub.

This is the lid i use for grain spawn. but with a variation. I find that is you place the clean tyvek on the lid, with the band. I then press on the tyvek where the hole is at in the lid, it leaves a imprint of the hole and I know exactly where I can place the RVT. This tek. can be done with grain already in the jars and you do not have to wait for the RVT to dry before you PC , it will come out of the PC solid.

This is true. RTV works the same way in a car engine. If you apply some to a head or something, and put the head back on, you can start the car right up, without having to wait for full cure in 24 hours. makes sense.

      Is this a start?

      A tek is science, people before you have had great success with them. They show your the way to success with put mush failures. when you have the know how , you can try more... with more success.

      I'm sorry about that accidental quote, this website is still confusing. These are both separate teks people have sent me. And I said ports in the paragraph which was my slang for portabelas. Is there any chance they will grow? I just want to see a little bit of miselium to get me excited
    • El_Piraña
      Yes, better than coffee in dixie cups....but why not just follow one of the teks on ology? It seems you are pretty motivated to get going, but you are more likely to have success the first time around if you follow the tek exactly.  And if you let us know what type of spores you're working with it will be easier to give you some guidance in the right direction.  We want you to be successful too!

      I did some research on begginer teks last night. I have one jar (on the left) with a mixture of brown rice, sawdust, and 1 cup of water. And on the right is cleaned birdseed with water. Bought a cheap PC at goodwill and used that on both to steam them out. Soaked store bought ports overnight and sucked some of the liquid into a sterile syringe and put it in both. I am expecting a contam in both, but I hope to be able to get some miselium growing and be able to transport... is that better than my coffee in a dixie cup scheme?
