Whole Oat Prep

Great looking grain MF. Do you notice any difference in time of spawn run because of the lower amount of noc points than the millet?

Not at all @mushmouth The grains are so plump and nutrient dense, the individual oat grain actually makes for a better home-base for the myc. It blasts back from being broken up and is strong right out of the gate. I really think this is a superior spawn to hard shell grain in that the hull is more grassy, and serves as not only a protective for the myc colony in the kernel, but ultimately a food source. especially with edible or woodlovers. they fucking demolish this grain. Robust myc, cheap overhead, easy prep= fap fap fap fap

I should also point out that you should ignore what it looks like right out of the PC...In fact, don't look at it at all, just pop it out and get to shaking. Every time you shake, it looks better and better... By the time you don't need gloves, you don't really need to shake much..

Thank you Magic for adding another method. Some like the soak, and it's good to have input from that team. Good looking out!

Sure man, I will need to give your tek a try though. One question- you don't need to rinse the grains at all b4 you jar them?

I don't, but you can. a fellow grower rinses his with cold water in a strainer, then adds a little less water in the jar. As in 150ml instead of 175. You won't get shmutz on the glass, but I don't see any detriment to not rinsing.

Looks like the same way I prep my WBS. I'll pick some up next time I restock - looks a lot like rye!

 

If your using bags like me, PC for 2 hours!

 

As he said, it is cheap. My feed store sells 50# for $12.50!

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?

      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
