I appreciate the comment. I agree that it is nice to be able to see what is going on and I was often wishing I had a transparent bucket! Were slits in your bag sufficient to let enough air in to keep the culture alive, or did you have another way to do that? I have thought of drilling the holes on the sides of the bucket larger, as maybe 1" or 1 1/2", lining the inside of the bucket with transparent plastic sheeting, and then making slits through the sheeting at each hole. That ought to still retain the wood pellets, but let you see what's going on a little better. Didn't put that in the instructable as I have not tried it yet.

I love the simplicity of this instructable. Also the use of hydrogen peroxide is great. I find hydrogen peroxide treatment to be an easy alternative to heat pasteurization for straw and for wood pellet media for pearl oysters and elm oysters. Perhaps other media and other species also work. I use "One-Step", a hydrogen peroxide product used in home brewing, at the one tablespoon per gallon rate used to sanitize beer brewing equipment.

I'm afraid I don't know enough to help you out there. Maybe someone else will comment on your idea.
