Below is straight from shroomery.org. Of course, the amount of time in the microwave depends on how much casing material you have. Make sure the container is microwaveable too.

Instructions:

Clean the inside of your microwave out...use bleachy water.
Then spray the inside with Lysol.
You want to microwave your casing material in the microwave for 5 minutes.
Spray the air out side the microwave with Lysol.
Pull the container out of the microwave and stir up the casing material with a clean utensil.
Put it back in the microwave...and nuke it for another 5 minutes.

Let the casing material cool down in the microwave oven.

Spray the air with Lysol.
Pull the container out of the microwave oven.
Apply the casing material to your substrate.
Then cover both containers to keep airborne contaminants out.

also, if you have a thermometer for cooking. make sure the casing mix reaches 200+ degrees.

i use it most of the time
i use the biggest plastic containers that can fit in my microwave
nuke 2-3 inches of Jiffy Mix (get at walmart) at field capacity for 15 mins
after cooled just mix the spawn in very well
i get an OZ give or take a gram every time
fast and easy
i do straw when i get board

camelton, you said you get an oz every time---how much spawn do you use? do you actually "mix" the spawn in, or do you layer it??
