Decided to try some Red Wheat Berries with this tek.

 

One of the jars colonized much faster than the rest, then upon further inspection, it looks like green mold formed on the inside of some of the kernels and is now spreading.

Two of the jars are still progressing nicely along.

The last jar, seems to have stalled out with very little growth, gave it a shake today. Hoping the the best.

 

The one that molded (so far), seems to have a lot of exploded berries inside of it. Maybe I left it on the stove too long.

New here. How does one inoculate these wheat berry grain jars. Is it possible to use spore syringe. Or does on have to get to liquid culture.?

I used the residue from the shot glass after making spore syringe. Just added little water in the shot glass and poured it in wheat berries preserve jar and I couldn't believe after 2 week mycelium was growing. As of now half of the jar is colonised.

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

Would organic hard white wheat berries from Bob's Red Mill work bro? I tried Walmart didn't see it, here its 25# , $25

I wish you were online cause I wanted to know this before hand but I'm just going to follow your tek and use WBS instead of the whole rye berries which I will def use next time less annoyance with sifting out seeds and corn. I guess the question is moot now lol but fug it still gonna post this.

So I used WBS and made enough for 10 but then only decided to use 4 jars worth and threw the rest away mostly because I was terrified that itll fuck up due my lack of experience. I noticed the rye grain is way more expensive but it seems a lot easier picking out all those god damn sunflower seeds took forever. I also found out to my dismay that my pressure cooker was like a half inch too shallow so I had to try a different method with a large pot and steaming them. I pray this works and after I make some cash off these things I will have to invest in a pressure cooker thats big enough. I only have a few questions really after letting the jars sit and cool do I have to inject them right away or can they hold in the jars at room temp for at least a day til I hear back from you?

With a presure cooker that's fine but steaming them u are racing the tams I'd do it soon as cool .your spawn is the most important part of your grow .can you lay the jars on there sides in your  presure cooker?if so I would do so even if you can only do a couple at a time .

      Hey I found some of these telephone brand packets in an Asian market yesterday. They advertise as 25g but when I weighed it they come to a measly 17g, just fyi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      The tyvek envelopes are the same thickness as the tyvek house-wrap used for waterproofing buildings. The suit tyvek works but it is extremely flimsy and a major pain to work with. I would suggest having a member from the USA send you some envelopes, or do some research to find out what grade or thickness of tyvek is used for house-wrap and buy it online. Your most economical option is probably to ask someone to send you envelopes. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Dam. I've never seen it in cool sheets like that. I'm not sure. I would imagine it's all the same but I know the envelopes I use are very different to the suits other people use.

      Hey mushmouth, thanks for the input here, guessing the tyvek will give me more options regarding jar opening size as I can cut to fit? I can definitely get hold of Ball jars. Are these sources good on the Tyvek front, is this the stuff I'm after?? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tyvek-Fabric-by-the-metre/dp/B00JBBOAM8/ref=pd_sim_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DS324T5MT3YHYRRFS1CJ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tyvek-Fabric-Pack-of-10-A4-sheets-Tyvek-Fabric-43-gsm-/272517007214?hash=item3f7347876e:g:YDwAAOxy7vJTdTXn

      Yes, sounds like you know what I'm talking about. Its actually "Earthwalkers mini a/b" from over at the nexus, and it works wonders for cleaning up acacia extractions.    Yes, I would try to break it down somehow then do some freeze thaws. Then while its in the strong basic soup use something like a potato masher to break it down further. You just want to be able to lyse all the cells to retrieve all the goodies, if you don't get it broke down enough you may not get it all out. There's nothing wrong with letting it soak in the soup for a day or 2 to break down either, the longer, then the further it'll break down.
