I'm stepping up my game, getting a PC...
« on: September 09, 2009, 04:02:56 PM »

I got cocky on my last G2G's. I pushed the limits and failed, three out of four got trich. One got sour rot... :angry: but it's my bad. I'm making a glove box too. Do y'all have any brands of pressure cookers you like? I was looking at a used Presto 23qt on amazon.

ive got an old mirro-matic.  Only one ive ever had, has worked great for a long time.  if your buying used make sure the gasket is not cracked and see if you can get new gaskets for it.  if it has a gasket.

what do you mean by pushing the limits? my bro and i did a G2G 2 weeks ago with cambodians and we had 2 of the 12 jars get contaminated. idk why maybe too hot of incubation. it had gotten to 86 at times. but i believe that if there is contamination in the jar then it had been introduced during inoculation and not because of anything you do thereafter. anyone know?  we made two casings on sunday and two last night, and their all in the FC tonight. the first two were colonized well but we had to put the two we made last night in too b/c no one will be able to watch them. fuck it, should be alright

Pushing the limits aka being lazy and didn't clean my work area like I usually do. I thought I could get away w/ it and man was I wrong.

Make yourself a cheap glovebox out of a plastic stow bin, then make sure you sterilize the inside of it with 91% alcohol each time that you use it. That should take care of your problem. Also be sure to wear rubber gloves and some type of sleeve over your arms to help eliminate any contams that are on you from entering your jars of grain.

Well, like Fattrout says,....    More Lysol!  And, don't be afraid to use it!    
  But, if you are having contams after a g2g, and the source isn't bad,....   That is confirmation that you need to tighten up in your practices.  Sorry to say.
  I use lots of Lysol,..... Bleach, and Denatured Alcohol, ( since I have it around for my artwork).  Hell if there was a real, " 2 - second " rule about food hitting the floor,........  You might have a, " 2 - minute " rule here!  A surgeon should have it so good,...  :rolleyes:
  Clean up, and GL.

Yeah that shit happens.  Even when I beleive everything is squeaky clean I have had to throw stuff out!  I don't even go into my lab if I have a cold or sniffles, it freaks me out to much .. lol.  But Lysol is good, not only for keeping germs etc down for the shrooms but for your germ killing of cold and flu bugs!!

I know now not to harbor the fuck it attitude. I normally take a shower, wear gloves, spray lysol etc... I was thinking " The jars will only be open for a second does all that extra precaution really make a difference?" and you all know the answer to that. Yes, it does!

I ordered that 23qt Presto. I've got bulk fever! ^_^
