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!

      I'll start by providing a little background.  this is not my first grow but im still a newb, maybe a dozen grows under my belt.  the trays are 12qt.  i spawned 3qt of wbs to 6qt of coir/verm and some gypsum. when they were ready i cased with a half inch of 50/50+ and fruited.  my humidity runs 80 or so and sometimes it dips low overnight.  i mist and fan 3 to 4 times a day. the pins are covered in what looks like mycelium.  if i touch it it goes away leaving a normal brown cap. these are pe so i expect odd but this is the second time ive seen this, whats up?

      3 hours and 40 minutes have passed.  I'm mostly back to this plane of reality.  It comes and goes in waves. Was very hard to put words together just now when I was speaking with someone. I have the 3rd-steeped cup of tea sitting in front of me.  I drank the the first two earlier. I'm thinking I'll drink this cup and see if it takes me back.

      Thank you everyone for your replies!  For now I'm gonna let the transfers grow out a few days and then isolate more if necessary.  I really should have stuck with one clone. I keep finding it is so easy to use up a bunch of agar jars. Trying to do proper isolation of substrains, testing each one, etc can use up all my jars quickly. I need to make some more  I'll try to add some pics of the transfers in a few days. If I come across another really good pin I'll do another clone, maybe from the Burma strain this time...we'll see.

      Ok, I won't bore with the background details because that's on another thread and it's also really hard to type right now. 1 hour and 45 minutes into this.  Kaleidoscopic visuals, rainbow colors, check. Definitely some ego disassociation happening.  I'm coming up for air right now, so to speak, so I can type this. Heavy body load.  Really deep introspection. Very, very, very interesting.

      160-165 with a carb cap does have some taste to it but it does no leave too much on the nail. i switch between 155 and 160 usually. definitely take the water out of the piece tho and wait to carb cap for a fat second so it all vapes up off the nail. this is my setup but i havent dabed the deems in a second, ive been loving changa too much lol. maybe ill do both and see how it is Tbh you will have to clean off your nail a ton if you switch back and forth so best get a dedicated nail for the deemz, also it will reclaim inside the nail and drip down very quickly so clean your nail often mine has clogged much faster than it should be:/
