I upgraded the beer can from last year's wax melting kit with this bigger and stronger tin can. I also improved the heating process by using a hot water bath as seen in the photo. This allowed for much better control and a safer place to rest the can while we drilled the next round of holes for the new oyster mushroom logs.

How exciting! I just got to try morels at a friend's house over the weekend. First time and I'm completely addicted! Oysters are a favorite, too. :)

I assume your morels were dried or frozen from last year? So far, oysters seem to be the very tastiest, but we're still very young in our mushroom explorations. :-)
