Large Autoclavable Gusseted Bulk Spawn Bags
Large Autoclavable Gusseted Bulk Spawn Bags w/ Self-Healing Injector Site
What would be the difference between the 2? Any input on either? I'll probably be using grain as a starter substrate and spawn to bulk from rye so i'm assuming get the cheaper ones....

i'd be using the bags to pc bulk substrate and casing mix and using jars to grow out the grain. I have a 22qt pc.
Nice, me too. If you don't have an impulse sealer, you can find them pretty cheap on eBay. I also bought my bags from www.sporeworks.com too.

I also did some shopping today for supplies for over Thanksgiving break. I recently got the pressure cooker. The seals came in monday. I bought 12-Quart wide mouth jars a pair of "canning tongs" a few packs of powder agar and some cheesecloth. Also got powdered lime and poo and straw. I'm going to wing this a couple of times and see how it goes. I have a couple of "Renold's oven bags" i can use. Big question....does composted manure in the pressure cooker stink up the house?....cause...i'm assuming yes.....
Also today i went to the Agricultural Market and bought a 56Lb bag of Winter Rye for $12 and the Beer supply store and got 1Lb of Light Malt Extract and some yeast.....i love living in the country ::GRIN::

Electrical zip ties can also be used to close spawn bags. They can be cut off and the bag reused. I have several bags on their fifth or sixth use. Eventually, they get brittle and tear.
I reuse my bags too, what are these zip ties things exactly?

how is an impact sealer different from a vacuum sealer?
Hi guys, it`s my time to pop the cherry and stop lurking =)
Impact sealer is just "welding" the plastic together, but the vacuum sealer sucks out the air from the bag before welding.

they don't breathe well, even with filter patch.
but that can be worked around
by not placing too much substrate in the bag
so it can hold more air.
you can fill air by hanging the bag up
so it's own weight will draw air thru the resistance of the filter.
how large are the bags ?

bags are opened and shoved down towards the sub 3 or 4 times
for air exchange and done 3 to 4 times a day .

i wasn't expecting this type of flush so the pick looks kinda crappy... peruvians and pfcs also seem to do really well with this method.

yeah, they are tough critters.
years ago i had a basement grow op going in a rental
and in one corner i had a big dirt pile [old discarded soil mix]
i got in the habit of tossing old spent cakes over in that corner
for later disposal
then one day i noticed i had a pretty nice crop of boomers
right there on the dirt pile, i guess the cakes soaked up
enough moisture and put out some pretty good sized fruits.
