You got to shop around to feed stores for best prices like 40 to 45 cents a lb. I've not had best result with lime pasturation of high nuke subs I've had to sterile the whole bags before hand so contam rate is less. Equally you should anyway for the slow myc like shiitake , reshi which I love to grow with bran. Also its about bang for money. For reshi bag 5 to 7 % bran is great with a spawn rate of 1 % is profit just waiting to happen but for osyters you need up to 20% bran to get those deep colors custors but can be half bran 10% and 10% cracked corn.

I also recordment soybean meal at 5% mixed into edibles for quick colonized times
