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 .

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?

      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
