o hell ya thanks mz this will work fine and its also my first time working with rye berries i hope it pays off like wbs has

 

after you dump in the strainer and rinse theres no need to let it sit and dry a little like the oldskool wbs tek? thats why the verms at the bottom right?

Correct, plus when you shake the verm will absorb any extra moisture

do not let the grain spawn sit in the strainer for any longer than it takes to put the verm in your jars.

I'm looking around online for a good wheat berry source and noticed something that me curious. All of the products I find say that they are either white/red and soft/hard. I know you said it doesn't matter if they're white or red but what about hard or soft?

Cool, I found 25lbs of Red Wheat berries for $30 on amazon. Also found 5lbs of BRF for $16 from the same vendor, Great River Organic Milling. Seems like a good deal.

you can get 21 lbs of white wheat on walmart.com for like 20 bucks right now.

 

you can also buy 5lbs of brown rice at walmart for 5 bucks and grind it with a coffee grinder :P

If you let the grain sit 30 minutes you could skip the verm. Grains dry fast for me way faster than wbs. Could be the state's dryness too.

I've tried this. doesnt come out right, which is why i made the tek ;) the wheat has to be laid out and dried properly (about an hour) if you dont want to use the verm otherwise its too wet and sticky and causes tam in the sub. Before I started doing this I was having a bad problem with tam and wheat berries after spawning.

 

I used to sell this in grain spawn bags. proper prep is crucial with this type of spawn. its just as finicky as NSNS teks. clumpy, sticky, and nasty

So your saying down the line it can cause problems. I can see that

yea. the wheat is very starchy. mold loves that starch. Once all this is gone I am going back to wbs.

so with these no fail teks i understand that the layer of verm helps with moisture content but after you shake and disperse the verm it wont dry the grain out?

no because the verm absorbed the excess moisture, so its already moist. this is why you do not want to dry your spawn out at all. it should be sopping wet when you put it in the jar.

Is there a difference between these berries and hard winter wheat berries? Cause I used to use hwwb for years and let me say that they work great!

You are correct sir...the only differences really i guess are when it comes to hydrating before cooking.

      @Tump sorry bud but I think your wrong..... I'm not trying to be a dickhead man but it's a running theme with you. Those blobs are knots man they are forming caps inside. I wanted to wait to say this till I did some reading and rechecked the tub. Here is a pic I hope you can see the difference from yesterday.I think you need to read more and maybe grow more before giving advice to new people man. Some of us have been talking and agree you give really bad advice to new members and new growers when it is able to be comprehended. I know @tomentose was reprimanded for pointing this out on someone's thread, but I'm gonna have to agree with him. It's awesome your so into the hobby and into helping others but I think you should really let ppl who know how to grow and teach take care of new growers. Man I got no hate for you at all, your very entertaining in fact. I hope you take this with a grain of salt please.  If I was the same fungi that started here I would have dumped that tub prob for fear of tamming my other grows. In the beginning man I made so many choices based on things you told me and I wish I didn't man.

      @GRayt_ray Well the print I chose and the section I took noced up a few half pints I didn't let them grow out tho I just wanted the myc. It was mainly tomentose growth so that's what I isolated, it looks real good for only one round of isolation to me. So far none of it has Tammed but I pitched the other jars b-4 they finished. Let me know if you want a print back after I fruit a full canopy of these weirdos, and show you what's up.
    • GRayt_ray
      I feel like if I had the room and no job I could do something like it. But fuck that lol
    • GRayt_ray
      Awesome I was worried it would be dirty cause my first time ect ect. Excited to see how it does, will be mad if you get a great flush lol
    • Fungi2b
      Well that's one angle I didn't look at @Tump.  Guess we will wait and see. Do you think I got a case of bubble guys? And cubes do overlay all the time if r.h is too high. Eating casing is the same as overlay right? And how many ppl per month ask how to stop cubes from doing it?
