Well I am wanting to use Rye grain in Filter patch bags.  My innoculation technique is simple.  just blend up 4-5 petris in about 600 ml H20 in a eberbach and pour on sterilized grain in bags.  I am used to using a brand of birdseed but have lost availability and and seem to get wal-mart brands etc.. to work.  So back to Rye.  It has been years and I used to use glass jars back then.  Anyone have a clue the best way to sterilize bags in 25x sterilizers.  I was thinking of doing a simmering method described in the simple minded grain teks then sterilizing four bags filled with 2 kilos of soaked rye grain for 2.5 hours at 15 PSI.  The time is my main concern.  where is a good source of sterilizing strips?(cheaper than Stamets?)

Sounds good.

Sterilizing strips cheaper than Stamets' ....difficult, particulary since the Stamets's ones aren't really that expensive.
