I happen to live with one of these people. Yea she has her reasons and Ok she does have some valid points but... GOD DAMMIT there's a f*cking right to pursue happiness written in the constitution I think. So to keep things more coposetic I'm gonna pursue my hobby in a more clandestine fashion. Here goes...

btw,
know why coffee filters aren't prefered over tyvek ?
because coffee filters are paper which equals food to microbes,
if the filter gets wet,
bacteria can pentrate it,
molds grow on it, etc.
tyvek is synthetic,
non-food and thus will not
support microbial life even if wet/damp.

In this reguard, is tyvek better than pollyfill?
Polly has lots of places where water can hang out
(though pollyfill never gets itself wet, if u
know what i mean)

Can contams enter thru polly? I don't think they
can with tyvek.

Nice setup. Now to figure out the lighting problem!
I crave not the result.
The satisfaction comes
with knowing the result
is because of me.

depends on the quality of the tyvek used.
that post office stuff is mostly paper
and i don't like it, quit using it long ago.
polyfil is a synthetic fiber too
so it shouldn't support growth,
the main problem folks have with polyfil is that it protrudes into the jars,
making it easy to get it wet when shaking jars.
now if the water contains nutes,
that will cling to the polyfil and
yep, contams will grow down thru it
into the jar.
tyvek is flat and so is easier protected from such.
i personally use a three-part filter on my qts,
a layer of good tyvek on top the lid,,
then a polyfil plug for the lid hole,
then another layer of tyvek under the lid.
the layer under the lid compresses the polyfil, keeping it up high and is water-resistant
so the polyfil is protected.
then the polyfil acts as a filter
after the tyvek is punctured by injection,
extra redundancy but my environ is very high contam so extra precautions pay off.

Brilliant!!! As you know I am in my infancy of the hobby but am not afraid to think of and try things for the hell of it. That combo never crossed my mind. Thank you so much for posting it. Gas exchange without compromising the sterility of the culture during the crucial shakes/rolls. Though contams in jars haven't been an issue, this is the kind of info my friend thrives on for success.

in this reguard, one could go by without taping
over the hole in the tyvek? the polly would act
like a self-healing injection spot? I use 2
layers of tyvek, no polly fill, but then masking
tape over the hole.

The box is translucent and I do open the box up and look at the jars in the light for about 5 minutes a day. I have thought about drilling some small holes in the top of the box but will probably just wait and see how they fruit without.

You guys have got me a little nervous about my coffee filters on my pint jars and yes some of the filters have gotten a little wet(dunking in grow box seems to be a bad idea).

solution a: spray down coffee filters that have gotten wet with lysol

solution b: replace coffee filters that have gotten wet with tyvek and alcohol swab top of jar lid

solution c: replace wet coffee filters with dry ones that have been sprayed with lysol

do not get the filters wet,
not even with lysol or alcohol,
as both will evap leaving behind
plain water.
just go with solution b minus the alky
or let lid dry before adding tyvek

wow I've been doing this lately too. Or something similar anyway.

Upload

the whole setup, notice that I just inoc through the foil after wiping it with alchohol and letting it dry

Upload



this is the lid, actualy there are two layers of tyvec under the lid, polyfill crammed in one of the holes and an injection port in the other. The innoculation actualy goes through the foil then the inj. port and then the tyvec. The hole with the poly is not disturbed.

Upload


then the final set up , currently trying 1/3 popcorn, 1/3 woopoo, 1/3 verm. Seems to be starting ok, shot with blendered myc. water.

We invented sox !!!
