  1. Hey all, I am excited to be here. I have been stalking this site for a few weeks now and learning a lot and willing to learn a lot more. Last Friday, April 26, I inoculated 4 quart size rye berry jars (I ordered them pre sterilized along with 4 bags of sterilized substrate). I made sure to use my bathroom for inoculating the jars. I bleached everything, Lysol, 91%alc wiped on everything. I wore gloves, only my underwear, and created a still air box to use to prevent any unwanted particles that may have been floating around. Today is Tuesday, I have not seen any growth yet but a
  2. So on 2/4 I spawned 3 quart rye berry jars to bulk (verm, hpoo, calc, etc), temp @ 80 degrees. The sub is kinda thick and I made it a tad above field capacity (PE like moisture). I uncovered to take some pics and it looks like the Myc is working its way thru the sub (joy).... My question is when should I case it? when the entire surface is covered? or can I case it now?
  3. First inoculated about 60 days ago. Sat at temps around 82-84 degrees. Never shook them. Looks like the bottoms are slow to cover. I’ve heard PE are slow to colonize. Wasn’t expecting to get this far. So....should I wait for the bottoms to cover or are they ready? The middle looks thick and covered. Sorry my camera sucks! I have 3 jars like this. Since PE is a moisture lover should I dunk them after I birth them?

  5. In 16 days (10/26) I have to go away for 10 days (26 days). I don't have anyone to manage things while I'm away. Based on the condition of the jars should I: 1) Transfer to bulk "before" I leave for 10 days - I'm thinking this would be just enough time for colonization of the substrate and once I get back I could start the fruiting process? 2) Refrigerate the jars now - to slow down colonization, and transfer to bulk when I get back (would that work?). Help!
  6. The bottom pic shows what they looked like BEFORE I shook them. The top pic is a day after I shook them. My question is, were they too colonized to shake? I’m now reading that if you shake them when they are more than 40% they may not recover. Ugh.... but if you don’t shake them you won’t see contams that may be infesting the middle....
  7. ... quite nicely with no visible contamination. I bought 2 tubs: 56Qt 23x16x12 in. and a 90Qt 29x13x18 in. The jars are 3/4 full. All the tek im reading says once the jars are fully colonized I need to mix it with pasteurized horse or cow shit and some say mix with Verm, etc... So my questions are: based on how manny jars I have (4) which tub should I use (I’m guessing the smaller one) and second what’s the ratio of substrate to colonized rye berry I should provide? I’d like to grow all 4 jars in a single tub if possible? Should I mix verm (and anything else) in with the hshit or use on
  8. I have been working with Rye berry grain for about a year. I by organic in 50lb bags off of Amazon. This last bag has been more failure than success. The grains are dry when I put them in the jars, but after I pressure cook and add agar of spore solution, they turn into a clumped up mess and often turn green. What can I do to prevent this? Maybe rinse them before and after the soak?

    My First Grows

    Tub 1 (big blue) Golden Teachers , 3lbs rye berry, Select Bulk Casing mix . 6/23 - made monotub (layered, colonization) 7/3 - add Pre-Pasteurized casing mix 7/7 - started misting (5 pumps straight up) and fanning (for 60 seconds) twice a day. Humidity 90 (wrap top with plastic wrap to help increase humidity) no light Temperature 72-77 Need to drill holes at the substrate line Can I drill 3/32" FAE holes every two inches? If I drill 1" holes how many and do I fill them with Polyfill? How do I know if it to wet or not wet enough?
  10. Part 2 thanks GT Day 13 of colonization (6 days wax paper) added a light layer of Shroom Supply casing. Temp. between 77-83 Why is it taking so long to start pinning, Is it the temp or is there something else I should be doing?
  11. Hello, I would like to share with you how I have prepared RYE seed for many years and it works for me. It is a SOAK and SIMMER tek. but I feel it takes no more time then the No soak no simmer tek and with rye IMO NSNS is a very bad idea... to get the right moisture content you must hydrate rye before you load in jars and PC. Rye is not cheap, I get mine for $1.70 a LB. or $45 for 50 lb. but it has its benefits over other grains. The reason I like rye as a sub: you can just pour the 100% colonized rye in a pan( with no other sub) let grow a few days, then case it and let i
