Glad you found some, did you do the Sat or Sun workshop? I didn't get to talk to a lot of people on the day too absorbed in the learning process, I did the Sun.
When you say pasteurization vs sterilization what do you mean? I thought there was a pasteurization step for the straw (bulk substrate) simply cause it was too big for the pressure cooker. I don't have a pressure cooker, pretty sure mother in law has one and I'm going to long term borrow it!
I have a three year old so yes can understand that, but I'll be either hanging the bags from rafters in shed or putting on shelves.
I got the impression they tended to be more productive in the bags?
Let me know if you find a good Agar source up here, not sure where to buy it from?
Melanie - Thanks for that
Katoomba is a little far for me, I'm considering looking into using chicken food as a starter grain.?? any thoughts. There's a brand called Heritage Feeds and its certified organic around $30-40 for 20 kilo bag of the course layer mix - Sun Valley produce keeps it. So would work out cheaper than the co-op stuff.
