I actually don't follow any specific tek (but I've gone rogue!), I eyeball some corn syrup into a half pint (about a coin size drop) put some water in, PC it and then use sterile tek to inject spores. That tek has given me this (hard to see but the cloudy stuff is pan cyan):

I only use about 1cc (ml) of spores for each jar, well worth it imo. Plus you can do it with a small colonized grain jar.

I like grains, rye, wheat ....ect. a person  seems drawn to different ways.

 I like grains for mini bulk and it takes only a drop.

Okay. So I made some LC with potato water and corn syrup and I'm about to PC those along with my NEW hydrated bid seed which looks a lot better. The LC tek i was reading said PC for 30 min however I want to do it with my spawn for 90 min. Would that be a problem?

You don't want more than 4% dextrose (corn syrup) ((source Mushroom Cultivation For Remediation)) Thanks to seeker and radical mycology.

 

Here's an extensive thread with all sorts of good info

As long as the sugars aren't too high or crystalized then IMO 90min shouldn't effect it

So I am wondering about open air innocs. I have a glovebox I mad but it would be rather tight with quart jars inside..and I don't want to open and close to bring in the next jar, i guess that defeats the purpose. So can anyone give me advice on innocs in open air, maybe in a CLEAN bathroom?

Yes it can be a problem, as the sugars can caramelize and the myc doesn't like that so much.

 

IME even 30 mins is a bit long, but if you read it in a tek from a reputable member then it should be fine.

 

 

So I am wondering about open air innocs.

 

Open air inocs. can be performed easily and clean if using syringes and silicone ports, I would not attempt them with G2G.

Make sure to wipe down your ports and needles with iso between each stab.

The ports on my grain jars are polyfill. Any way to wipe those down without soaking them?

I covered my polyfil holes with medical tape( micropore ), more to keep it in place but I assume that it could be wiped down, just a thought.

If you are using foil on top of your jars while you pc them just don't take it off before you noc em up.

 

If you are not using foil then a spritz of iso from a spray bottle won't hurt anything.

Yes, but shouldn't he make sure his poly isn't wet from steam?

If the poly fill becomes wet in the pc process It acts like a highway to cotam city.. correct?
