Hey Jeff.  I'm just starting my first Oyster grow as well.  I have popcorn colonized and ready to go, I will be pasteurizing straw later today and trying to grow laundry-basket-tek style.  I talked to a professional grower who says what I'm doing won't work, but I'm knee deep in it now, so we'll find out.

The "Let's grow mushrooms" guy, John allen I think, did oysters with the laundry tek. Good luck bro. I don't have too much room for growing so I am sticking with what makes my buddies and I happy once a month or so. Good luck all.

"professional" growers will try to discourage you with misinformation to keep folks from gettin in on their business! lol yeah RR has the laundry basket tek in his videos.

Yeah, the guy's name is Marc, and he is always happy to answer questions that I have for him.

The straw basket I have loaded to grow oysters has been in the incubator for 4 days and is getting really fuzzy.  Man, I hope this isn't 10 lbs of white fluffy MOLD.
