All sterilized rye is prepared to order and shipped early each week. However, if orders are low we will wait an additional week to prepare substrates. Our experience in preparing this product has led us to make an informed decision to provide our customers with the freshest possible sterile product. As a result, sterile rye only moves through our sterilizers early in the week to ensure we can ship requested orders no later than Wednesday. We do not hold this product on our shelves. Customers will experience a related delay in shipping. The cut-off for submitting orders to be included in the weekly sterilizing run is Monday at noon EST. Orders placed later in the week will be delayed until the next run of sterilized rye. Sterilized rye is prerpared every week, so you will wait 7-14 days before receiving shipment notification (worst case scenario). Thanks for your understanding!
Two pounds (or a little more) of sterilized and prepared organic rye berries in a gusseted autoclave bag with self healing injection site and air filter patch. Ready to accept mushroom culture to generate mushroom spawn. More more detailed information, plese see: Sterilized Rye Mushroom Grow Bag Instructions.
Once colonized with mushroom mycelium the rye berry spawn can be used to inoculate bulk substrates, or transferred to more sterilized grains to further expand the mushroom mycelium. In some cases the rye can be utilized as a direct fruiting medium and grow block.
DO NOT alter, tear away, or remove any portion of the attached white filter patch or the plastic shroud covering the injection site. These must remain intact and unaltered to function properly.
A note on rye sourcing: Our raw organic rye berries are secured immediately after the fall harvest and shipped by the ton to our facility, where they are quickly placed into cold storage. This allows us to ensure the freshest, highest quality grains are procured quickly and cared for properly. Grain sourcing is the single most important factor in ensuring quality substrate preparation and sterilization.
Note to local customers: to ensure freshness, most of our sterilized substrates and media are prepared to order. As a result we do not stock these items on our shelves, or place them into cold storage. Rarely, we may have a handful left over from the week's run, but please call ahead of time to ensure we can prepare them for pickup.
Note to International customers: due to increased exposure and potential of longer transit times, we can not extend our standard replacement guarantee to customers receiving this product outside the USA. You may still place an order for and receive this product, but you will receive it "as is," without claim to replacement material should you experience contamination or failure.
Cleanliness Guarantee: Pre-sterilized un-colonized products such as rye spawn bags, PF Tek jars, and pre-poured plates are all guaranteed to arrive sterile and be sterile if used within 7 days after receipt of purchase. Should you find any of these product unclean or contaminated please contact us and we will make arrangements for replacement.
