Could someone please tell me the correct water level in the pressure cooker when doing mycobags? Should the water be over the bottom rack and if so,how far up the sides of the bag? How long should I pressure cook 1 or 2 bags at 15 lbs? Peace and happiness, jack080247

Enough water not to evap away during your cooktime, and not too much to cover the bags and/or boil into them and add water. Just enough. I usually put about 2-3". You just don't want it to boil into your bags and ruin them, and you don't want it to evap all away either.

i keep the bags completely above the water level on platform,
rolled up to cover the filter,
held closed with rubberband.
seal after sterilization.

A good way to keep it above the water level is to throw in 2 or 3 beer cans for it to sit on.

i always took empty halpint jars and put them underneath the rack of the pc then filled the water up to the level of the rack. in an aa921 that left just the right amount of room for 3 large sized bags each with ~9 quarts of spawn.

it is a good idea to raise the rack a little using some kind of object (the beercan method mentioned above is a good one) to allow a little more water to be placed in the pc for a longer cooking time.
