Yes I was laying it out on a towel with a fan till it was dry on the outside. I was also putting em in a crock pot instead of the 90 min soak.

ok. dont leave the verm out just yet. that takes some experience to know when the wbs is just right for that particular tek. just dont lay it out anymore. you want the grain to still be sopping wet when you load it in your jars, and using verm. I edited all that out of his tek at one point but i guess he put it back when while he was still a moderator. many people have issues with his tek bc they lay it out, and the grain gets too dry for using verm.

 

the verm is there so that you dont have to think or fuck with the wbs at all.

That's right up my alley. Less time, work, water, propane. Maybe that's why the millet isn't colonizing. Maybe I'll separate out the millet and use it by itself in a few jars, that way most of them are 100% much quicker. Get my tubs spawning quicker.

that is why the millet is not colonizing. there is NO grain spawn tek that isnt finicky in some way.

 

My no fail tek is only in video form. which sucks because its the best version of the tek. it always works, everytime.

 

the no fail tek is literally an evolution of grain spawn prep. its supposed to make the whole deal alot easier, and less time consuming, like pf's cake tek was supposed to make inoculation to fruits much easier. theres a thousand ways to do things in this hobby. some consume more time and effort than others. my philosophy was always "whatever uses the least amount of time and effort for the biggest payoff." since this was not a job for me, and time is money. the no fail tek always saved me immense amounts of time.

 

this is why if you take the time to look back at some of the shit i posted you will see i dont spend a lot of time on precision EXCEPT FOR WHERE IT COUNTS. Ive had some of the most redneck flowhoods made out of steriltes and all that. B)

i was just browsing strobes no fail tek. i noticed he says to only soak for 45 min (the 90 min part was me). you are soaking for the full 90 min right? i really hope so bc 45 min is not enough. idk how he ever got by with that

 

i'll make my version of the no fail tek and put it in writing. i'll save his for historical references but ive seen so many people have issues with it that it wont be an official shroomology tek anymore.

I do the 90 min. Last time I did 2 hours. The time before that I messed up the timing and only soaked an hour and 15. When I loaded the jars, I added 4ml of water around the top with a measure dropper. They came out ok. They are colonizing good and fast. What do you think about doing the no fail, with a longer soak? 2 hours? 8? 12? Would it hydrate better? I know it's more time, but the same amount of work. I'm definitely gonna try the no verm way you explained. I know I can do it right.

90 minutes. no laying them out to dry. just dump them in a strainer and rinse. then let them sit in the strainer for about 10 min and load up the jars.

 

if you want to do it longer you can, but doing so can lead to busted kernels as the PC is what hydrates them for the most part. you dont want them too hydrated before PC.

I would not recommend the blender tek, but I would recommend learning how to hydrate grain correctly. I failed a lot before I got it right.

HunterGT used to swear by the blender clone tek. he would do it right on his kitchen counter. 

 

it never worked for me like that though  <_<

I am not saying it would not or does not work , it just has to many places to fail, one piece of Agar has always worked for me.

i used to try to wrap my head around that blender tek, and this is what would come out:

 

"should i just pour alcohol in the blender to sanitize it?"

 

"should i build a blender sized glovebox?"

 

"should i just stick my whole head in the blender?"

      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.
