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 .

      Thanks for the replies. I was hoping their delivery times would be a little faster since it says 4-5 days on their website. I have everything I need for my first grow except the spores. Hopefully my order will arrive eventually, but in the meantime I might order spores from another vendor so I can get started sooner rather than later.  BTW, I was listening to Phish when phish replies to this thread.

      Simple bag tek (you just need a PC): Order some large mushroom spawn bags, 0.5 micron filter patches. Put a quarter sized dab of silicone on the filter patch and let dry overnight before PC’ing for your SHIP. Fill bags with 1.5” CMC (composted cow manure) and then the same amount of coarse vermiculite so your substrate is about 3” thick.  Then fill half of a qt jar with any grain like WBS, oats, rye or wheat berries, etc. Put grain in blender and powderize. Add to your bag along with 1/2 tbs hydrated lime like Mrs. Wages.  Mix everything up well and then slowly add RO or distilled water until it gets to field capacity. Fold the top of the bag down 3 times to the top of the filter patch after getting as much air out as you can, then squeeze the rest of the air out and fold the bag down around the sub with the filter facing out. Clip the ends with binder clips, and use 2 rubber bands to hold the bag down.  PC for 2 hours at 15 psi. Inoculate bag through your SHIP once it’s cooled overnight with spores or LC. Put in inc until it is fully colonized and then just set it out in a room with good air circulation to fruit it.  It takes about a month to colonize but it’s simple and better than vendor kits and a lot cheaper.

      Aren't they a sponsor of the site? I just told someone they were and need to go back and find the post to edit if not.

      First of all, we as moderators and Administrators, have no affiliation with SOS whatsoever. That being said, there have been many  issues with orders being overly delayed being filled.  Its a small time operation from what I understand, and they get backlogged with emails and texts from impatient customers. I guess SOS just don’t care to respond, for unknown reasons. Then BOOM , your spores show up at your door a couple months later. Granted, that’s not the way customers wish to be treated, but for now, that’s the way it just is. I have no idea what the specific problems with SOS are. But I hope they get squared away sometime soon.

      Yep, MSS = multispore syringe. If you're just starting and don't have a print or spores then you can't do agar. Not unless you want to culture whatever you have floating around your home anyways, lol. Agar is more difficult though, yes. Sterile technique needs to be on point as you're working with petri dishes rather than a jar with an injection port etc.  You need spores either way. Just order you some MSS and do that the first round. Then experiment as you wish. Besides, it's better to do agar from a tissue sample taken from a fruit than from MSS. MSS there are just too many different strains and genetics to try and isolate. If you have a nice fruit, you still have quite a bit going on in there, but it's a bit easier to work with from my understanding. Agar is generally considered more advanced work. Even though it is possible to isolate from MSS > agar, I would highly highly suggest getting some fruits under your belt first.
