2 holes in lid.
fill one with silicon for injection,
glue tyvek over the other for air.
don't poke holes in the tyvek so no silicon there.
just a smear of elmer's glue around the hole to hold on the tyvek.

when I LC I shake and wait and such up the mycelium in one 60 cc lump. I always wondered if i should shake and then such up the LC.
That way maybe I could get more bang for my buck
whould this work just as well, if maybe i lossen the lids for FEA, and incubate in a rubber made container.
what im worred about is the fact that the incubation/walk-in closet is heated by a hot coil fan set up kind of like a hair dryer and I doen't want the Spawn dry up.
Final comment: I learned with PF-tek that thier has to be FEA, but PF has a verm layer, I thought that rye jars had thier own magical atmosphere, dang ,

not the best for colonizing grain.
a filter is essential, keep lids tight.

Having a hard time trying to decide what to do next - get crops now, or maximize yield?
These jars are the result of extra material that wouldn't fit in the bigger tubs once all the junk (BRF cakes using PinkBflo, hpoo, coffee, coir & eggshells) got mixed together. Since there isn't anything at all poking through casing layer yet on the larger tubs, I didn't think very much was happening with the jars (the fruits are probably one-day old). There is lots of knotting.
What would be the best course of action at this point that wouldn't destroy the progress so far?
It's been at least a month since the last crops were harvested and the cupboard is dry, so we could really use them right now, however, it seems such a waste to not maximize what we got.
Any ideas on how to best proceed next? Thanks for your time !

It is not exactly colonizing in a rhizomorphic fashion like it did with a previous monotub of the same spawn used fresh. Although I have used half as much spawn in the process it took me only a matter of days to rip through the previous monotub. It was done as a casing. This latest tub in the link below is a bulk substrate (coir&verm) spawned at 25% WBS.
Any thought's on the subject are appreciated greatly.:rasta:

if its in the fridge, then it can last quite long i think..

I am using WBS as my substrate. Here is my list of possible ingredients and materials to grow in......
Premium Composted Poo (as seen in the pics)
Medium grade verm
(i can get some straw if needed, and chop by hand)
I have sterlite tubs (from 18 gallon to 30 gallon), turkey oven bags, 2.5 gallon and 1 gallon zip lock slider bags, aluminum bread trays, small lasagna aluminum trays, and aluminum turkey pans. the trays/pans will be placed in tubs for proper humidification.
I am using one of 4 choices of LC's I have ready....
B+, puerto ricans, gulf coast, and Hawaiin. I was thinking of either GC or B+.......
If using the composted poo, for pasturizing i am trying to find the oven tek used in this thread http://mycotopia.net...-ddd-style.html as I have the proper materials to do this, however I cannot find the actual tek in the vaults for the life of me.....
I am using a coolmist humidifier with aluminum flex tubing to pipe in to the FC's.
Any and all help would be appreciated.

1. use simple polyfill/teyvek tops for spawn jars
2. use 4 quarts of spawn per tray
The above two links lay everything out in super simple terms. I Hope this anwsers some questions. Write back if this wasn't what you were looking for .

Fill the ovenbags n' tie 'em closed..Really need to keep oven temps below 212F so u dont lose moisture ..I set at 185F They have to cook long enough that the core temp reaches 160F for an hour..This can take 3 hours or more depending how much stuff u have..
To help beat contams - spawn liberally for a fast finish..
