I can't really remember Neo. I want to say one bag will do 5 quarts? You'll love wheat berries though man, so much easier and cleaner to use than WBS. I used WBS for 3 years and first time I used wheat berries I never went back. :)

I just simmer until it's ready, about 25 minutes or so. When they start getting plump take one and sqish it, when the inside is translucent it's ready.

Well did my jars. I was wondering what you thought. I think they lok dryish but im not sure. I deffinately see some cracked open during PC They look usable? Trash? Add water and re PC? Each pic is a diff jar to show consistency. Pics were taken no more then 5 mins after coming out PC post-238-0-85092800-1339797106_thumb.jpg post-238-0-34426700-1339797112_thumb.jpg post-238-0-22548500-1339797119_thumb.jpg post-238-0-74249400-1339797125_thumb.jpg post-238-0-83554400-1339797132_thumb.jpg post-238-0-47013100-1339797137_thumb.jpg post-238-0-96541000-1339797141_thumb.jpg

I started with Rye then Wheat. Stuck with wheat for years, then decided to see what the big fuss was on WBS and then went right back to wheat. Wheat is perfect for this hobby IMO!

      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.
