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 .

      I recently ordered the beginners pack from Source of Spores based on the recommendations I read on this site. However, over two weeks have passed and I have not received my order — I haven’t even received a shipping notice or any updates on my order. I’ve tried emailing them but have not received a response. Is this typical for them? Has anyone else had problems ordering from them recently?

       Well, I've been told that we should try to avoid heat mats or incubation(for colonization), it would depend on how cold it gets in your grow area.   It can be room temp for both fruiting and incubating, 65-78 F is what I've read most on here.  The need for an incubation chamber for colonizing is old info that's generally considered outdated, but if your area is below like 60 F, you probably should add some heat preferably mild, especially under a FC(fruitin chamber).  If it's that cold(below 63F) then you might want to use it, but maybe don't set the bin directly on the pad, elevate it a tiny bit. GL.  BTW, the problem I have is I gotta run a heater/furnace, and it dries eveything out, so watch out for that

      My temps around my house including on top of the fridge are just to cold. I keep it in the gh to maintain a temp of 77 to 81. I use the air pump to exchange the air inside. But when i switch to fruiting i will be changing the climate. Im using th gh as my incubator as i have nothing. When im ready to fruit ill look into getting a dedicated incubator.  My temps around my house including on top of the fridge are just to cold. I keep it in the gh to maintain a temp of 77 to 81.
