Deleena, are you starting with 0.5 micron patches or other? And how do you resolve the issue in the same bag that 5 micron might be too big for spawn (contaminant issue, I guess) while 0.5 might be too small for fruiting stage (inadequate GE).

I think my bags are 0.5 micron (darn, I should have labelled them or made a note of what I got. No way to tell, I guess. Maybe I can find my online order somewhere.)

My bags are the .5, same as yours.

I have successfully used them for spawn, too.

Edit- if I wasnt clear, I use the exact same bags for fruiting as I do for spawn when I make my own. If you have LC instead of spores use it. It colonized faster, giving contaminants less time to get a hold.

For anyone who does accidently get the full 5.0 micron bags, I see no reason why you couldn't use them for spawn if you covered the filter with a layer of micropore tape after the PC. Or even a layer of that polyfil that comes in rolls. It will act as a prefilter IMO, keeping the small microbes out, while still getting the benefits of a bit more air exchange.
