Spawn Too Dry?

Recommended Posts

bluecollarirons

3rd time trying to post this.. Hope if works this time..

 

My lowdown>

 

Liquid culture colonized with south american.

 

WBS and rye cleaned and soaked in hot water for 2-3 hours. 1/16 hole in metal lid, tyvec on top of lid with high temp gasket maker on the tyvec. Pressure cooked at 15psi for 15 min.

 

My question is how dry can the spawn get? It seems dry to me but this is my first time doing this tek. I usually do verm/BRF cakes.

soaked in.. cold water or hot?

 

I dont think thats enough time for rye, and you might be better off using one or the other and following a specific grain spawn tek for that grain.

Soak 24 hours for WBS to? I always for  boil water and pour over and cover bucket for about 1. maybe 2 hours tops.

 

But we all can agree that its , PC 15 PSI for 90 mins or more.

i see a lot of contamination in your future bulk grows.

Thanks for getting back to me guys.. Soak longer, got it.. As for 90 min thats way over kill and unnecessary.  . The only contamination thats gonna affect a grow is mold and fungus. There is no mild or fungus that u would need to worry about that lives in that high of temp and pressure for more than 3 or 4 min. No household mold is an extreamaphile. These things grow outdoors where there is tons of mold and contams..People don't realize how hot those jars get and how fast. I have been doing BRF for years and have never once had a contam problem. I always go 15 min. The let cool over night. There is still pressure and heat in the pot about 2 hours after u turn the burner off. Those jars heat through and through and get more than hot enough. 90 min is a waste of time. U can run another 3 pot fulls at that point.. Just fyi

Thanks for the tips..

      Fungi is right man. From what I have seen so far in this thread I can tell you haven't done your homework. Because of this you are missing very very important steps. Go to the tek section of the forum and read the dub tub tek, the z-tub tek, monotub tek and really any other tek that you see from MushZombie. Specifically you need to read the 6qt dubtub tek it's the most in depth and thorough tek that teaches everything from start to finish. Even if you don't plan on actually doing a 6qt dubtub you still need to read this tek. I'm sure me and fungi both probably read this tek like 10 times. And of course once you get into the reading, pick a tek and stick to it 100% for your first several grows. My recommendation is to not try the Monotub. I tried it as one of my first ones and it failed miserably, hell I'm almost a year in and only have 50% chance with monotubs.

      So to summarize, do your homework from what has been written specifically for new growers doing so will help you dramatically.

      Did you say your doing them 2 and 3 times a week? If so thats the issue. The body builds up a tolerance to shrooms after just one dose and it takes 7-14 days for that tolerance to reset.

      Boooo-rrrriiiinggg.. lol so you think it’s not worth the trouble huh? I picked up wbs and jiffy today too, I got a 23 qt presto coming to my door tomorrow and myco bags coming on Sunday. So yea, I’m switching earlier than I thought I would.. I’m all in baby!! So even for penis envy you think it’s better just to fruit them as cakes?

      Just fruit the cakes as cakes. Spawn grain spawn to bulk sub.
