Hello! Newbie here. I've got one semi - successful run under my belt so far, but in truth it was more of a fluke than anything. I colonized a micropore bag full of hydrated rye berries, allowed them to reach pinning in the bag, went through all the proper steps of dunking and rolling, then placed them within the hydrated perlite lined, breathable tub on tinfoil squares and left them to their own devices.
I'm still not entirely clear, but from what I've been reading I believe i'm missing a few steps.
If i'm connecting the right dots, I believe the rye berries are meant only for the colonization of the mycelium, and i'm then supposed to distribute the PC'ed berries into some form of jar TEK or monotub method, instead of birthing the colonized rye berry cakes and allowing them to fruit (or lack thereof, from my experiments).
My main question is this, assuming what I have stated is correct, how can I sterilize my verm, CoCoir, and manure mixture without a pressure cooker? Unfortunately at the time I cannot acquire one, and only have access to steam sterilization on stovetop.
Any thoughts / suggestions would be very helpful.
