55 Gallon Mushroom Substrate Steamer

Based on a design by Myers Mushrooms, our substrate steamer is the easiest, most cost-effective solution on the market.

A typical cycle will take 14-24 hours. Time is dependent on ambient temperature, substrate temperature, and heater wattage.  The 55 gallon model will accommodate 200 lbs of substrate.

  • New 16 gauge 55 gallon stainless drum
  • Temperature and run time controller with heating element
  • Insulated with Armaflex and jacketed with neoprene
  • Vented with thermometer
  • False bottom
  • 2” ferrule with clamp for heating element
  • ½” drain with stainless ball valve. 
  • Stainless float/fill valve.
  • Pressure regulator
  • Braided fill hose

The included controller allows you to set the target temp and run time. It features a stainless steel enclosure, indicator lights, safety lockout, and temperature probe. The controller ensures accurate and repeatable results while minimizing electrical consumption and saving time.

A 30 amp rated extension or power lead with a L14-30 connector is required to run the unit at 240 volts. They are readily available from Amazon or your local home improvement store.

For situations where 220v power is unavailable, a 120v adaptor is available here. We strongly recommend running substrate steamers on 220v.

Other handy options are available from Myers Mushrooms KIT page.

Watch the Myers Mushrooms video on putting your substrate steamer together. Note that the false bottom design has changed since this video was made. The new system is simpler and self-explanatory.
