So since I don't have a laminar flow hood and only a SAB if I want to load up a monotub I should pasteurize my substrate rather than sterilize?

My previous attempts at open transfer of substrate with oyster mushrooms has resulted in trichoderma contamination.

The HPOO I pasteurized and the verm I used to get proper hydration I sterilized....this is probably going to depend on the sub you're using........many tek's for those are here...

 

Going to spawning tubs, believe it or not, went the absolute best outside in a breeze or wind..........

 

Yeah, I too wish I had a laminar wall................. :biggrin:

 

Someday soon for the gourmet and medicinal work I'm getting into I hope................

Oh noooo, two of my three expansion jars contaminated or I've been growing contamination this whole time. Dammit.
Is it worth just casing the grain as is and hoping I'll get something?

I think I may have been growing contamination this whole time. How it took this long to produce spores I am unsure.
