First the diclaimer, obviously I did not think of this tek on my own (other then my measurement that work for me) it is just a compilation... :DI have not soaked or simmered grains in a looong time and I have not yet lost a jar due to contam since using this method, and I also do rye and WBS the same way.I prefer white millet over any other grain, it colonizes way faster IME..I hope this will help you on your mycology adventure, follow this exactly as I spell it out and you will say fuck soak and simmer..Items needed:Quart jars with whataver lid tek you preferWhite milletMeasuring cupWaterAluminum foilPCFirst make any lid that you would like for your quart jarsMeasure out 350ml of white milletpost-6-0-12479500-1326320565_thumb.jpgAdd to jarpost-6-0-46868800-1326320564_thumb.jpgMeasure out 150ml of water, I use filtered waterpost-6-0-65298700-1326320563_thumb.jpgPour water into jar with white millet and gently swirl aroundpost-6-0-88097000-1326320562_thumb.jpgPut aluminum foil over toppost-6-0-84629800-1326320561_thumb.jpgPut jars into PC and PC for 90 mins @15psipost-6-0-68033000-1326320560_thumb.jpgThis is what they look like right out of the PCNow this is the key point in this tek, as soon as the PC is cooled enough to open, take jars out and use a bike tire and shake the shit out of them to evenly distribute the moisture. You will notice some of the bottom millet will look saturated and the top will be drier, this is from expansion. However shaking will balance it all out I promise..post-6-0-12407200-1326320566_thumb.jpgLet them cool too the touch and shake them again. I personally shake them 6 times over a 24 hr period and they come out perfect and should look like this.post-6-0-68209200-1326320559_thumb.jpgInnoculate with your favorite strain and incubate at 80F and I usually have 100% or damn near 100% colonized jars in 7-10 days using LCpost-6-0-29441300-1326320558_thumb.jpgAny questions dont hesitate to ask.As I said I exclusively use this method and havnt soaked or simmered grains in a long time...Works like a charm and saves you some time..Enjoy

Those Who Were

I love the simplicity of this, do the same measurments apply to rye as well?

I have used this exact tek and measurements for Wheat Berries and it worked out really well. You can also use 200ml Millet and 200ml Wheat Berries and use the 150ml DI water and it works beautifully!Peace.NS

      Heres a pic of my new LC that is 12 days old. Should i let it go longer? Last time i used it after 7 days i think. Bought 5 grain jars instead of bags that i will be inoculating soon. I was also told by a friend who grows food mushies that i shouldnt have the top on the totes and fans them, that i should leave the tops totally off because them being in jars/bags then in a sealed tote is redundant and they wont breath well enough. She also recommended i leave on an indirect light source for like 10 hours a day or so to mimic real conditions. Thanks in advance!

      A big gap.  It was a story about ayahuasca and antibiotics that got me wondering about mixing the two being a bad idea.   Thank you for the input.

      Intriguing and harrowing case report of someone who injected themselves with mushroom (P. cubensis) tea...spores included. He nearly killed himself doing this, and was on ICU life support for multiple-system organ failure for some time. He had bipolar disorder type I and had been researching ways to treat his opioid dependence and depression, and was intrigued to give psychedelics a try. One very weird take away from this: "...the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood". Not only did the mushroom spores survive boiling, but they germinated and started growing in his bloodstream according to this. Curious about the wider evolutionary implications of this pertaining to the mushroom...given how tough and resilient mushroom spores appear to be, it calls into question the hypothesis put forward that psilocybin acts as a repellent...perhaps it more likely acts as an attractant. Makes me curious about the association of P. cubensis with bovine dung, perhaps bovines are ingesting spores and helping distribute them...I wouldn't put it past those crafty fungi. https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mp74/man-injects-magic-mushrooms-they-grow-in-his-blood Study: Giancola et al.

      Thanks guys. I inoculated the LC via an agar wedge. Although the mycelium in the LC looked a bit lackluster, it does seem to be colonsing jars of rice/dung without issue. Time and heat definitely isn't an issue, the room the LC and grain jars are being stored in is nice and warm, and initial growth was rapid. Thank you for the recipe switch recommendation...I will definitely try this if I have issues.
