I still steam cakes. One 90 minute. But I do sometimes go a second round.

I never steamed anything either. But, alot of people did. PC's anymore are relatively inexpensive. I had one that fit 4 jars when I started before I went to the mother of all PC's lol. My point is, there are enough contams out there that can really mess you up. I got really sick from dealing with some bad jars and was down in bed for 3 months. It took some serious antibiotics three runs before it knocked it out of my system. If your going to do this hobby, get a PC. A 20 dollar one will work just fine. You may have to load it a couple times, but it will be well worth the expense. I am not a big fan of steaming anything in this hobby after what I went through. I also do not mess with contaminated jars. They go in the trash. (Ok. That may be a little extreme, but I am not getting sick from this again.) While this is a very rewarding hobby, never put your health at risk for a few bucks.

 

~ Rant over lol. I cannot apologize for being passionate about safety.

It was a black powdery mold that created a cloud when I opened the jars to dump that I couldnt get away from fast enough. Newb fuck up for sure lol. Jars when in the trash after that if there were contams. I have troubled lungs to begin with, but still. My motto is, NOPE.

Kudos on the write up, SS.

We've been in dire need of an up to date document to give to folks who are new to the concepts of growing mushrooms.

You rock brother :)

Well, ya, after that my motto would be "nope" too.

I thought so too!  I'm ready for a break from it for now but I want to come back and keep working on it, adding pictures, etc. over time.

What nothing about alcohol extraction? The comments in the PF tek guide talks about it, but definitely needs to be updated. Just my opinion, I don’t mean to shred!

My recommendation is to host it somewhere that you can swap out the version of the PDF. That way the links don't go stale.

 

If that's not possible, there may also be URL shorteners that allow you to change the destination URL. That way when you upload a new version somewhere, you can just repoint the link to it. 

 

Not sure about terms of service and such, that might be tricky.

There's definitely room in there for a section on alcohol extraction, in the "recipes" chapter.  It would fit right in.

This is definitely a good idea.  Luckily, I can swap out the version right here.  :)

As soon as we can figure out a way to use cat poo as substrate.

Great Guide for the beginner! Smashing job putting this together. There aren't very many guides for the beginner to get his feet wet with.

Definitely a sticky and resource to direct new members to read when starting out.

If you want I can help spread this book around through torrents. I get some mad hits on my shared files.

My point was that you might want the URL to stay the same, but swap out what it points to - which I am not sure you can do here. That way if people pass around the URL outside your control, it remains up to date. Sure you can update the link, but if someone has already coppied and pasted it, it's too late.
