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!

      Hey I found some of these telephone brand packets in an Asian market yesterday. They advertise as 25g but when I weighed it they come to a measly 17g, just fyi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      The tyvek envelopes are the same thickness as the tyvek house-wrap used for waterproofing buildings. The suit tyvek works but it is extremely flimsy and a major pain to work with. I would suggest having a member from the USA send you some envelopes, or do some research to find out what grade or thickness of tyvek is used for house-wrap and buy it online. Your most economical option is probably to ask someone to send you envelopes. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Dam. I've never seen it in cool sheets like that. I'm not sure. I would imagine it's all the same but I know the envelopes I use are very different to the suits other people use.

      Hey mushmouth, thanks for the input here, guessing the tyvek will give me more options regarding jar opening size as I can cut to fit? I can definitely get hold of Ball jars. Are these sources good on the Tyvek front, is this the stuff I'm after?? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tyvek-Fabric-by-the-metre/dp/B00JBBOAM8/ref=pd_sim_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DS324T5MT3YHYRRFS1CJ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tyvek-Fabric-Pack-of-10-A4-sheets-Tyvek-Fabric-43-gsm-/272517007214?hash=item3f7347876e:g:YDwAAOxy7vJTdTXn

      Yes, sounds like you know what I'm talking about. Its actually "Earthwalkers mini a/b" from over at the nexus, and it works wonders for cleaning up acacia extractions.    Yes, I would try to break it down somehow then do some freeze thaws. Then while its in the strong basic soup use something like a potato masher to break it down further. You just want to be able to lyse all the cells to retrieve all the goodies, if you don't get it broke down enough you may not get it all out. There's nothing wrong with letting it soak in the soup for a day or 2 to break down either, the longer, then the further it'll break down.
