Yeah,great video Mush. I'm sure I'll give it a try sometime,but NINs tek is just so easy now with my fan and dry screen setup perfect moisture content everytime..No extra steps with the verm and boiling water.I like the idea of the 90 minute soak though if I want to pc grains TODAY on a whim.

I used to use the same tek. And then i found this, and threw away the screen, bc i knew i would never need it again.

the screen and fan are actually the extra steps. its so much easier to put verm in the jar, and boil water than to make a screen and buy a fan, and dry the wbs on the screen.

you wait for 90 min, instead of 24 hours for the grain to soak. Peope who use this tek, dont wait for the wbs to dry off (but not too much!) :blink:

This tek is also great for people who live in apartments, and dont have a back yard to be messy in with the whole screen deal. I always used to have to sweep up my kitchen when I used that tek.

Not everyone as good as you are either. You are 1 out of 10 that master the 24 hour soaking method. most people FAIL to get the moisture content just right. This tek is a NO FAIL tek. That means its easy, and it's meant for the brand new.

If the 24 hour tek works for you, and you already got all the stuff to do it, then I dont see a need to switch. that would be like switching from real coffee to decaf BLEH :P

Putting verm in makes it sooooooo much easier. Phish I'm sure you're just a dinosaur like alot of people and don't want to change your routine, :bongload:(I know how it is) I'm sure you have it down to a T. This tek is a great one though. Anyone into it already has a ton of verm sitting around(or at least should cause you aint getting too far without it). NIN tek is great, I just never got it to work for me properly. WBS was either too dry or too wet. This tek gives you some room to play with a little extra moisture, which is why I see it as being more fullproof. I just got a nice new over the sink strainer, things huge compared to my old one too. So makes things alot quicker. I still use my screen I built for when I'm doing alot of WBS to let it dry out a bit at the end.

Does my verm have to be course? I have horticulture and am lucky to have even found that! Really hard to find here.

no horticultural is fine for this, but you cant use that in bulk applications.

If I do this with a bag can I just throw some verm in the bottom first? Also, where the hell can I find COARSE vermiculite? The Only stuff I can find is practically powder. :/

im sure it wouldnt hurt to put some verm on the bottom to suck up any extra moisture, or allow you to soak it with lc for faster turn around. ima give that a go when i make up some wbs bags tomorrow. my other bags were too wet from my wbs prep method. one colonized fine though....i think....gonna spawn it tomorrow if it looks fine when i open it up. AND about the coarse verm, some people find it as attack fill/insulation. (i cant find it where ive gone) but i found a medium grade thats just like a 3lb bag all natural or some shit. found it at a small town hardware store...good luc ;) Peace BE

I get my verm from a place called a "feed and seed" store. Those people rock. They usually have way more real cool stuff there too, like rabies shots, oyster shells, etc ;) as for the bags... I dont know to be honest. I dont use bags for jack. Bags and I are not compatible or friends. I think it could be okay though, I just dont know how you're going to do the shake!

I was thinking bout the shake MZ, i have long skinny "chicken roaster" bags and i think that lite amount of verm shouldnt do any harm. im thinking when its time to shake, just pinch off the bottom of the bag where the verm is and shake it like a floppy giraffe's neck. or just break it apart with your hands carefully. and if the verm does get all mixed up in the bag...the worst repercussions of getting verm in my wbs is that mushies start to pin inside...ima give it a go and let you all know ;) love peace chicken grease BE

Hahaha MZ you are the best! If the bag is inflated with sterile air it shouldn't be to hard to shake...

      Do not birth them now. IF you wanna follow tomatoes advice, draw a line with a marker along the border of your mycellium, to be sure they haven't stalled, and check them in a few days.If they are still moving forward , which they likely are, let them finish. Your cakes will not fruit until the mycellium has consumed and run through the substrate. Just be patient and let them finish. If you birth them now, you'll be sorry, trust me.

      Aww a was expecting a badass named cube lol   If your impatient you can birth them now, might have trouble getting them out because they haven't ran out of room and started to shrink away from the glass.   Make sure you atleast case the side that's facing down currently

      Welcome bro, great info and interesting conversation is abundant here.

      Caution: I noticed my post and it was suppose to read NOT idea to use alone as a filter and that it should have a layer of micropore tape on it.

      My point was don't use silicone just tape in on and kill 2 birds (efficiency and adhesion) with one stone. I looked at a piece under a scope on a calibration slide and figured a not exact, but estimate there are gaps exceeding 1 micron.

      The minimum acceptable efficiency for spawn production is .5 micron. Every piece and every sheet is woven differently and all sections or sheets will have various efficiency ratings.

      I only looks at 1 piece and I suppose I should have done many to come up with a mean but it really wouldn't matter because the gaps can exceed 1 micron and that would be enough info I need to start layering tape. 1 piece is fine for grain jars.

      I switched to SYD because I did get sick of seeing tape residue on my lids and they do get very wet in the PC. Because using tape, it can only go through 2 or 3 PC cycles before needing to change the tape but eazyfelt (that's not a typo that's the trademark name) is so cheap, around here I pay 1.07 after tax for a 12"x14" sheet or close to that anyway so I don't even try to save the felt I toss the entire filter.

      SFD's are better IMHO but eazyfelt is made of the same material. They both are matted woven polyester fibers but SFD are more tightly woven increasing it's efficiency . Side by side the thickness pretty much the same, at least the ones I purchased.

      Another good point to make is silicone is a pain in the ass to work with IMO and does fail on occasion. Loctite makes a glue called KO2, I think is the name and even though it specifies a working temperature far less then sterilization temps, the shit works great with a 5 minute set up time. Requires 24 hours to cure but the shit is like concrete. It's a much cleaner look and easier to work with. If you would like to see a picture of my lid I will post one.

      Sorry to get long winded again but I was at the bus stop waiting on the slow ass bus driver who is always 15 minutes late, perhaps she will become more efficiency and get there in time if I layer some micropore tape her -

      Been lurking here for a bit and frankly like this forum. Seems to be my kind of folks here. So time for introduction. Really excited to be starting down a new road of exploration! Single, soon to be 72 years young, building a yurt to become my primary residence. Guess I am a bit of a Ludditte -- just starting to get used to cell phones (LOL). Gathering knowledge and forming plans to cultivation. While I know no question is dumb, I will try to keep them intelligent.
