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...

      My normal 10 qt Tubs I do my regular sub prep and add 2 qts spawn to the 10 or maybe 16 (unsure) tub. I duct tape all the holes and put in black trash bag. So far this seems to work as long as I let the bag air out and not suffocate the tub. I think the lid to my tub is loose enough to allow air flow. My mini zombie tub I sealed all the holes but the duct tape is quite loose so I think proper FAE can ensue. I like how you left space and then put micropore tape over. I think I will do that. the larger mini tubs do great so far no probs but this is my first mini-mini zomb mon tub..

      Pushed wrong button, again, The first time I made wine it was from Welch's concord juice . It also ran away in the closet of my parents brand new house, & that was before "stainless " carpet . I use to trade with a co. Called defalcoes. I believe they're still in biz & even way back they handled everything. Some hippy community out in Cal. Copper ed 3 different sizes of stave barrels. I've had 3 myself & they r such a pain to maintain. I started bottling long necks , but opted out to putting it in cold duck wine bottles . I'd buy those nylon corks by the gross ,pound them in with a rubber mallet & then put a wiring harness on them to keep them from blowing their top a stack them in the old time wood cases that king size cokes came in . I can still remember the blue smoke that use to spiral up when I use to bust the top on those Suckers. I'm gradually getting back into it again . I did trade with a co. That went total mail order . Hearing all this brew talk kinda gets me geared up to take another swing at it . I've always wanted to cold brew an ale type beer. It's all pricey to get set up though. That peach /mango sounds interesting. Buy the way , can u send photos on a pm. ? Later Bro.😎 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Yes, it went from tissue clone on MEA, then plates were blended in autoclaved blender. The blend was added to malt powder in 2800 ml flask that was autoclaved. Trust me no contamination it creates clean bags of spawn. Usually liquid culture separates as heavy colonies sink and liquid stays on top. Here the culture is so thick it has trapped the air bubbles from shaking and that causes the colonies to float. The growth on top is from it sitting in mason jar and exposed surface is myceliating from exposure to air. You would not see if it had bacterial contamination as you suggest, but you would see the effects of that contamination. And assuming it was contaminated you would likely see other contaminates such as trich. I use heavy LC rates of 50 ml to 150 ml on grain spawn because I produce a lot of LC and I achieve full colonization within 6 days with this wild variety. If it was contaminated I doubt that would be possible. I have included a picture of Wine Cap at 6 days of shaking with similar results from a syringe, non wild. If it was left for 10 days it would have achieved the same thickness. I have also included pink oyster from syringe and more wild oyster from wild variety. Results are the same. Orbital shaker creates a different LC then you are used to seeing with stir bars. Colonies are allowed to colonize faster with more oxygen and less cellular damage. Colonies can grow to large sizes because they don't get smashed by a stir bar as they pass between the bar and the bottom of a flask. Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

      Dam that looks contaminated to he'll. Anything wild should be agar tranfered clean before massive production. Looks like it's fight bactira on the bottom. Then dieing then growing on its dead stuff until it grow to the top. Lol this is awesome sauce

      Kathleen Harrison presents a wonderful talk here on the Big Species: Much material worth discussing. For one, she touches upon the Mazatec tradition that each species of mushroom with a history of traditional usage has its own qualities that are unique to it. She also points out that the Mazatec people do not view the mushrooms as a "drug," but as a living being you enter into a relationship with. And, for yet another topic of interest, she points out that the real work has always been done in the underground, at the folk level. Through our work with the mushrooms we are cultivating awareness, developing relationships, caring for one another and our environment. That the medicine is being looked at by our professionals is wonderful, but, as I am sure you all know, we are light years ahead of them in the work and understanding we have been doing over the past 40 years. The cutting edge is right here, among us, as we cultivate a living relationship with the spirit in the mushrooms, Los Santos Niños. γνῶθι σεαυτόν Gnôthi seautón Know thyself
