Blender Usage

This is what happens when one tries to sterilize a regular ol' acrylic blender jar.   This can lead to spousal disenchantment with your creativity.  It was at this point that it was "discovered" that the size and thread of a regular mouth mason jar match the blender parts.  ( This didn't impress her either since she's known that since high school Home Ec class.)
Remove the base, seal, and blade assembly from the blender container.   Put the seal and blade assy. on the 8 oz mason jar ( 2/3 full of H2O) and cover with Al foil, then sterilize.   The tab sticking out to the side is just to make it easier to remove the foil in the glove box.
The base doesn't come into use until after performing the shroom water procedure.  The base part doesn't need to be sterile.  Just clean with lysol occasionally for general cleanliness.  Be sure everything is tight and seated properly, then put the assembly pictured below on the blender and blend on the highest speed for 3 or 4 seconds, allow to stop and repeat for another 3 or 4 seconds.   Next remove the base and leave the blade assembly and seal in place.  Place it back in the chamber to have the blade removed and to be covered with the baggie for drawing syringes.
