Thanks bro, the reserved spot is really for when we get some green guys in here who ask questions. It will be a Q & A section with a compilation of their questions and answers. Also whatever I think of in the future.

so i did a pot of 7 jars using the 3=7 and it was spot on. this tek allowed me to really clean my grain before pcing. i noced the 7 with APE stupid me, but it is a good strain all the way around. will post picks soon.i just noticed i did not use the verm, good thing i dried my grain before loading the jars.

So no soaking over night and this works out well for ya doc. How have you tweaked this tek ? Just curious was gonna give it a shot but just use my noodle strainer instead of a screen and not use verm in the bottom of the jars its pretty dry in my state things dry fast here.

i do it all in an hour soak after the water boils in the pot, i don't clean or rinse just dump in the seed put the lid back on. no sunflowers. then after an hour i heat up the water to a slow boil and shut off and stir. strain hot and i dump mine into a tub and let cool. in there still to wet i add a couple cups of very dry hpoo, you can use verm, let set ten min and see where your at moisture wise. set it where you like it and jar them up and pc. this all takes about three hours and your done letting the jars cool at this point. once cool you will see your grain are hydrated but not wet in any way. i got the basics from this tek for what i do.

Hey! I put my WBS in my 5 gal bucket and then put double the amount of boiling water as I had WBS. After 45min I opened it and scooped out all the sunflower seeds. If I let it sit overnight before pressure cooking it will my spawn become contaminated later on when I enter the syringe? Also, I dont have a pressure cooker. If I put an inch of boiling water into a pot and seal the top and let it steam for a couple hours will that work? Thank you for all your help!

A PC is a must for grains/bulk process, you can do the PF TEK without a PC but thats BRF cakes, without a PC your gonna get real frustrated and waste alot of suplies Peace **D**

Ahh thanks for saving my ass. I'll go out and buy a pc tomorrow, but is it okay that my bird seed sat wet overnight in vermiculite before using a pc? The pc will kill any forming bacteria anyway, correct?

It depends if the grains have begun sprouting or not. If there is even the slightest sprouting action going on, the soaked grain is toast.

Hello there! This looks like an amazing tek, I can't wait to try it. I do have one question however, I have read elsewhere that you should shake up spawn jars when they are 25% colonized to speed up the process. Is this recommended with the vermiculite on the bottom? Should we do the half shake as stated above or does it not matter after colonization begins, and we can really 'let her rip'? :) Thanks in advance!

yes, the tek says to shake between 15-25%. It does just fine with the verm. After PC, the verm stays moist, it is not dry.

      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.
