Looks great, Bud! What's on the lid? Tyvek suit material?

Wbs flour is way better than pf Tek. You can even mix some cmc in with it.

I agree. And you can grind up the sunflower seeds too, instead of sifting them out and wasting half the bag of wbs lol

Threw em in the dehydrator and I’ll likely save a handful for a study and dump the rest

Save the stumps with substrate on them for tea :) I strain through a coffee filter. After the sub is run, it's pretty much just dirt, and the casing is mostly what sticks to the bottom of the fruits, I have no problem having that in my tea lol! :)

If you are gonna toss the cakes, why not cut them off at the base with a sharp knife or razor blade? No mess, quick and easy. Just a thought phish :)

I put the Texas cakes back in the fc after all  . I gave them a 24 hour soak in tap water. The 4 cakes weighed 206g before the soak and 396g after the soak.Doubling their weight

I was gonna chuck em but I wanna see if they’ll flush again . I believe my fluoridated and chlorinated tap water is a death sentence. I’ve seen it before,but let’s see.

The fruits dried up to toothpicks and cleaned up easy enough lol

But I put them aside for a rainy day 😉

I didn’t think of that Mag. At the time,there were just too many fruits. And as small as they were, I just didn’t care to treat them with any finesse 😂

The goal was to get good prints, and I didn’t get one good one from those fruits. 2 of 3 never dropped any spores.

If you look at the photo you’ll see most of the fruits have planed out, but no visible sign of sporulation anywhere . Strange🤔

Haha thanks Buddy😉

Each cake pretty much yielded 5g +\- dry per flush so far.

I can still endorse cakes for the grower who’s looking for just a handful of fruits now and then on the cheap. Especially if ya can get by with a Steam sterilization.But Idk what that success rate is, I’ve always had the pc

The Texas and CRS have done great on bulk subs in the past. Bulk grown fruits are better suited for printing purposes, that’s for sure. 

My “ Return to Cakedays” curiosity has been quenched 🙄😂

I wouldn't rely on steam to sterilize cakes. But you're exactly right. Cakes came in handy for me when I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy huge bags of stuff to grow mush.

I’m not recommending Steam Sterilization by any means. I used a pressure cooker from the very start. But for someone without any funds to buy a pc,or zero interest in spending money on the hobby,BRF cakes can be  done with a long steam sterilization with some level of success ( from what I’ve always understood). But yeah, I’m sure it’s a total crapshoot at best

      Round 2.   Ding ding ding.   Let the games begin.    Rolled the last 5 cakes this morning and put them into the new "virgin" FC.   The one cake I bashed by accident is now the "damaged" one in the the cake world and it'll have to work harder to be accepted as an equal by it's peers.   Bruising?   How about bashing!   We'll see how forgiving Mother Nature is now that's for sure.   Mist and fan for the next 10 days and no action, ie. fewer posts unless calamity strikes.   Peace.

      Excellent lesson MZ.   Thank you!

      Since the question of potency at various stages of growth has arisen, and most people dose by weight, I will leave this here, even though its also in various places around the forum. Dosing by weight is inaccurate. For all intents and purposes it can be considered that once the mushroom starts to produce spores they do mostly stop producing psilocybin. The window of production closes rapidly. The mushrooms do not lose the amount of psilocybin in them that is already there, but for those who dose by weight, instead of numbers of individual mushrooms, the potency does seem to decrease, with the maturity of the mushrooms. Because there is more mushroom matter on the scale, after a mushroom has grown to full maturity and released its spores, and that mushroom matter now contains less psilocybin, gram for gram, it seems like the potency has been diluted, and it has. Bigger absolutely does not equal better when it comes to mushrooms. So to answer your question, yes if you are not going to print your mushrooms, and you want high quality mushrooms that seem to be very potent, if you dose by weight, harvest them as soon as you see the veil start to tear.

      Went really well, thanks for asking!! Ended up with over 150g dried from the 2 flushes. Included some pics.
