WBS Flour with +'s (For our Cake Lovers)



I have gone ahead and tried something a little bit different with the WBS Flour Cakes I added a few "+'s", just to see what happens Bunk or Not I'll finish this

Things you will need :
1 WBS(Wild Bird Seed)
2 Coffee Grinder(Cup in Grinder for less mess, Weed buster if you may)
3 Light Karo or Honey(Natural)~{a 1/4 cup of plain white sugar can be subbed in place of honey or Karo}
4 Vermiculite(Course)
5 Light Malt
6 Distilled Water(Not necessary, just what I used)
7 Measuring cups
8 Measuring spoons or Syringe(I used a 20ml)
9 A large mixing bowl or 2
10 Half Pint canning jars(Wide mouth for easy cake extraction)
11 Tyvek Envelopes or Multi Pore Medical Tape
12 Foil of the tin kind
13 Spores
14 Pressure Cooker or (large pot with a few extra lids to line the bottom of the pot and fitted lid)
15 Whisk for mixing or something to stir with
16 Fork for mixing Flour and Vermiculite(Spoon seems to just push it around, fork seems to actually mix it)
17 Gram or point scale
18 Paper Towel

This is just a pic of the main Ingredients :NOTE: Please substitute natural Honey for Canadian Crown, it has sodium
post-27-0-86532900-1332007522_thumb.jpg

The Recipe : Makes 10 half pint jars
625/ML Water
20/ML Light Karo(Corn Syrup) or Natural Honey
2 Grams Light Malt
2.5 Cups WBS Flour
5 cups Course Vermiculite

NOTE : Heat you water up so the malt and corn syrup mix together well

The Process : I did NOT add a lid Tek to this Because there are so many types of lids out there, I used the standard 4 hole lid

  • [*]Take your WBS and load it into the grinder, don't over fill your grinder or you will burn it up.

[*]Grind the snot out of the WBS till it becomes flour(Fine powder)


[*]Place in a bowl for laterpost-27-0-44637600-1332008710_thumb.jpg


[*]Take your Water and heat it up in the microwave till its hot but not too hot to touchpost-27-0-95611700-1332008901_thumb.jpg


[*]Take you Karo and let it sit in a pot of boiling water for about 3 min(Makes for easy extraction of syrup)


[*]take you syringe and measure out 20ml of syruppost-27-0-19104800-1332008937_thumb.jpg


[*]Squirt Syrup into you water


[*]Measure out 2 grams of Lite Maltpost-27-0-65991900-1332008976_thumb.jpg


[*]Dump Malt into Water


[*]Mix them very wellpost-27-0-45286400-1332008999_thumb.jpg


[*]Measure out your 5 cups of Vermiculite(Only showing 4 cups here, add 1 cup)post-27-0-36442400-1332009107_thumb.jpg


[*]Mix your Water/Karo/Malt with the Vermiculitepost-27-0-30278200-1332009177_thumb.jpg


[*]You will notice that it is just above field capacity, when you add your WBS flour it will be perfect


[*]Add your WBS flour to the moist Vermiculite and mix well so the WBS flour coats the Verm evenlypost-27-0-20174200-1332009275_thumb.jpg


[*]Get your jarspost-27-0-87652800-1332009352_thumb.jpg


[*]Test your Mix for field capacitypost-27-0-27339900-1332009535_thumb.jpgpost-27-0-61531400-1332009560_thumb.jpgWhen you squeeze the mix no water comes out, when you squeeze a little tighter you get a small pool in the crevices of your fingers


[*]Load your Jars up till there about a half inch to a full inch from the toppost-27-0-40014800-1332010215_thumb.jpg


[*]Take you fingers and lightly smooth out the top, dont pack it tight, just even off the tops, a light tap on the counter will do the samepost-27-0-71761600-1332010084_thumb.jpg


[*]Take Your paper Towel and clean/dry the top portion of the glass above the mix(If you dont your jar wall will be moist and allow a highway for contamination's to get in)post-27-0-96549300-1332009990_thumb.jpg


[*]Now take some Dry Vermiculite and fill the jar the rest of the way(This acts as a contamination Filter)post-27-0-92003100-1332009750_thumb.jpg


[*]Now take your Tyvek envelopes and either cut squares or circles for the top of the jars, I used a lid to trace and then cut them out, time consuming but neat,Place the Tyvek ON TOP of the lid and under the ring(Don't forget to punch 4 holes in the lids with a hammer and nail or whatever you can punch the holes with)post-27-0-78072900-1332010478_thumb.jpg


[*]{OK SO AT THIS POINT YOU CAN LET THE JARS SIT FOR 12-24 HRS TO GERMINATE ANYTHING THAT NEEDS GERMINATING...THIS IS LIKE SOAKING YOUR GRAIN, ONLY THERE IS NO RINSE...THIS IS ALSO OPTIONAL, IVE HAD SUCCESS WITHOUT LETTING THEM SIT, AS WELL AS LETTING THEM SIT}


[*]Take your foil and cover your lids up so they don't get wet and add moisture to your WBS Flour/Vermiculite/+ Mix


[*]Place some extra lids in the bottom of your PC/or pot of water, to bring the jars up out of the water(We don't want to cook the mix, just sterilize it, and that is the steam that does this)post-27-0-18524600-1332011022_thumb.jpg


[*]This step is not necessary...I added a layer of foil over the lids in the PC'er Just because this is the way I always do itpost-27-0-06895800-1332011181_thumb.jpg


[*]Place your half pint jars in the Pressure Cooker or pot of water and fill your water level up to the tops of the lids in the bottom of the Pressure Cooker, Not the lids of the jars with the mix, only on the bottom lids being used as a rise for the jars to stay out of the waterpost-27-0-09671700-1332011361_thumb.jpg


[*]Fit your Lid and Pressure cook for 90min @ 15psi
When Pressure Cooker finishes turn off burner and LEAVE THEM ALONG for the day, let them cool at there own pace

Hope this is easy to read and understand, once you attempt it you'll see that its really not that hard

I just prepped this all today, so everything will be done in real time, fail or no fail(Please PM me if you notice something I missed)

MORE TO COME...Inoculation<DONE>, colonization<DONE>, Fruiting<DONE>

Peace From The East

INOCULATION

Here we will inoculate the jars we just prepped earlier...


The Process

  • [*]Get your rubber gloves and clean your hands well with Alcohol
post-27-0-88778600-1332032781_thumb.jpg


[*]Flame your Syringe(Im using a MAZ MS syringe, But you can use a LC as well)post-27-0-87094100-1332032881_thumb.jpg


[*]Clean your lids 1 by 1 as you go through each jar with Alcoholpost-27-0-15818400-1332032930_thumb.jpg


[*]As your needle has been already flamed red you only need to wipe with alcohol between each jar...as long as you do not wait too long OR are using a Glove Box such as STROBE's or VICIOUS'...you do NOT need to wipe or flame between the holes in one jar...just between each seperate jar, this is just what I do and it seems to work


[*]Take your needle and poke through your Tyvek and through the Vermiculite layer to the MIX(DO NOT SHOOT YOUR SYRINGE INTO YOUR VERM LAYER IT WILL CAUSE CONTAMINATIONS BE SURE TO GO THROUGH THE VERMICULITE LAYER), aim your needle at the glass and shoot 1/4ml per hole...so 1ml per jar(We dont want to add too much moisture to the mix we worked so hard to achieve)post-27-0-00023900-1332033306_thumb.jpg Repeat for all 4 holes


[*]After all 10 jars are done and inoculated then you will need to cover the inoculation holes with Micro Pore Tape like thispost-27-0-78590600-1332033451_thumb.jpg


[*]!!! Mark The Jars !!! with whatever you just inoculated with strain and date and if your doing a cycle note that on the jar toopost-27-0-63745700-1332033731_thumb.jpg


[*]Incubate the jars @82F, check on them every 7 days or so as to catch any contams that may have got in while inoculating...hey it happens to the best of us


[*]Play the waiting game, yes it sucks, but its so worth it
PLEASE NOTE : The jars used at first all went bad, due to a dirty syringe...tested many variables and the syringe needle was the variable that was consistent...NEVER USE YOUR NEEDLE TIPS TOO MANY TIMES< there cheap to replace...I got a box of 100 for $9.00

So now that you have your jars inoculated you just have to sit back and wait...this is done in real time with real results...I dont even know the outcome as of yet...the results are GREAT !!!

Hope you all enjoyed the Inoculation Process...

Stay tuned for the colonization...it takes roughly 30 days with a Multi Spore Syringe solution, NOT THIS TIME IT DIDN'T...As we all want results as fast as we can get so we can move to higher yields

Peace

COLONIZATION

March 27th 2012... I wanted to do all this in real time, but ran into a few problems along the way...for some reason these cakes dont like my LC's at all, So I made 2 jars with a MS syringe that I made from My Maz, thanks RYE for the MAZ, these 2 jars were inoculated on the 20th of march
post-27-0-17912400-1332855077_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-29608400-1332855080_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-36619000-1332855082_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-20639500-1332855084_thumb.jpg~
These are being incubated at 80F to 82F & are 7 days old as of today

March 31st 2012... {You will notice Ive numbered the sides this time, and will leave the numbers the same for the rest of there colonization}[Also to be noted I flipped the jars today to allow easy access to the bottom of the SubStrate for the Mycelium]Ok So here is an update of the Mycelium Growth on the WBS With +'s(For some reason my fone told me to take pics and update everyone on the progress, but its only been 4 days)4 DAYS look at the difference already...
post-27-0-26339500-1333211504_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-13002700-1333211506_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-20887400-1333211508_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-33156400-1333211511_thumb.jpg~
Thats 11 days so far for colonization (11 days old and already running, where has the time gone)

April 5th 2012... Ok so this has gone much better than I had expected, I have Full colonization in 16 days from a MS syringe I made myself...take a look...
post-27-0-07851100-1334152302_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-27916500-1334152307_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-78402400-1334152309_thumb.jpg~post-27-0-16867600-1334152313_thumb.jpg~

Now it is time for the fruiting stage


Thats all 4 sides of the jars, I also :( the Crown bc it contains sodium(Salt :naughty: ), The TEK above will be edited to use honey(Natural) or USA Karo...also as Ive just figured out, 1/4 cup of sugar, that rite plain old white sugar we all use daily can be subbed for Karo or Honey

FRUITING

Well Ive made it to the fruiting stage of this little experiment, actually made it there yesterday, but here are the 2 cakes from above in there new home

Casing = 50/50 + vermiculite/peat + lime

Day 1 : post-27-0-67755900-1334324042_thumb.jpg ~ Just cased and to tossed into GH after 24hr soak

Day 3 : post-27-0-46055200-1334447032_thumb.jpg ~ Holy knotting, this is turning out much better than anticipated

Day 7 : post-27-0-32353500-1335041934_thumb.jpg ~ If you look closely you can see the small pins...THE PORN HATH COMETH

Day 9 : post-27-0-96257400-1335223497_thumb.jpg ~ The Porn Continues, Using the +'s showes no signs of effecting the actual fruiting, there growing at a normal rate

It has been pointed out that I forgot to add a lil something...my dry weight was 12.3G's dry for both cakes combined...I didnt get any final pics due to me eating while I was taking caps for printing...Next Time I do this cake method Ill take final pics...sorry all !!!

Fruiting has completed on the first flush...although I did not take picks because my love for mushies took over and I was picking and eating, ended up eating them all.

The last day when I harvested the Mushies there were only 2 that did not open cap all the way...total days was 13 days for harvest




Peace

FAQ

Q - Do the +'s Actually Help ?

A - I got very noticible growth In just 7 days...and not dime sized growth, its more like a canadian toonie sized growth

Q - How did you make the Lids ?

A - I make my lids using a single paper hole punch i got from a local $1.00 store, ya just have to rotate the punch back and forth a bit to get it to cut through after ya do about 10 to 20 lids

Well, I had to toss 3 jars today...green ninja strikes again...But I believe I know exactly Why this it happened...my Needle was dirty(Thought I threw all the bad ones out, guess I missed one) I believe(I really hate using flame to sterilize the needle, it seems to cook whatever is inside the needle, piss piss puff puff, sizzle sizzle, soaking my needle tips in 99% ISO till I nocc tonight), did up 11 more jars today Just in case...noccing them tonight...good vibes !!! Clean syringe being used...hope the others pull through, fingers crossed and toung slightly curled...Good VibesPeace**D**

You know dozzer I wasn't going to say anything but I have tried ground up wbs in m cakes before and I got the green ninja. I figured it was from the spores hiding in the wbs some how I dunno. I am still watching brother.

Might have to pasturize the flour before mixing with the rest of ingredients, If this batch goes ;) Ill try pasturizing first then mix and sterilize...the spores that cause the ninja havent germinated when I grind them up, May have to add a step to thisI did think of this before attempting, but figured the sterilization process would take care of the endo spores that had not germinated...time will tell I guess...just looked again and I see 2 more that are suspect to the :ph34r:...I dont believe it was the LC, BC it looks amazing rite nowEDIT : Also used 20ml of pure honey in place of the Crown for this new batch, the Crown has sodium as discused befrorePeace**D**
