  1. So I've done hundreds of g2g jars years back but am just getting into it again. Usually when I do g2g I would only have to shake initially after the transfer and the whole jar would turn white. Recently I've noticed that the very tops of the jars won't get very white. I'm doing everything exactly the same as I was before. These are a B+ strain. In the photos you'll see a jar that's only been shaken initially after g2g transfer and the other jar is from the same g2g transfer but I shook it last night to redistribute the mycelium to have the top colonized. In anyone's opinion, would you reshake these jars or use the jar that's basically completely colonized with a few grains on top that don't look white? My g2g always take 7 days after transfer to get white, these jars would've been white by now and haven't made progress since. Although the mycelium grows really fast after I shake it so I know it's nothing with contamination. Any opinions?
  2. I've been thinking about it. I ran out of spore syringes till about next Friday or so. I have a full unopened a of brf. Do y'all think I could g2g a colonized jar of wbs to a cake? If I did I would pc the cakes without the verm layer but pc a couple jars of dry verm too. Once I g2g the cakes I would then cover them in the clean verm to cut down contams besides me opening the jars. It is just a thought and I was wondering if y'all think it would work I wanna do a couple cakes for the hell of it. Or should I just say fuck it and g2g normal grain jars and if I want to do cakes just noc them up the old fashioned way
  3. AM I CONTAMINATED?

    Im new to this and im taking over somebody elses work. I need to know which need to be thrown away, which i can g2g transfer, and which must be put into toats. two of these have what appears to be fruiting within the jars, is it too late to put into tubs? ideally i want to g2g transfer as many as possible.
  4. Recently like in the last month I build me a flow box out my big old still air box trting to reduce contamination. So far I used it for 2 sets of jar g2g and 3 spore drops to plates and 4 clone transfers to plates. My g2g sets look good so far. But my plates look horrible like burst a gut on each plate while knocking them up. Except one looks clean. Why is this? And should I go back to still air for cloning and transfers?
  5. So I had 10 fully colonized jars and I always like to shake my jars one more time before using to make sure it recolonizes again. But for the first time I shook up these 10 and some recolonized and some and barely doing anything?... I g2g these about a month ago with about 30 other jars all turned out white. Here are 3 jars showing the difference in some of them. The far right one recolonized along with 5 others and the ones to the left are barely doin much? But they're all from the same batch and my sterilizing process has been spot on for almost a year having lost maybe 5-6 jars to contaminates... Would it be safe to use these 10 jars in my next mono tub project?
  6. Hey guys Im gonna try G2G tomorrow and was wanting to know if anyone gots some hints. I have read the tek on here and other sites. It seems kind of stright forward just wanted some more info if ya got it thanks!
  7. Grain Bacteria

    So I knew using g2g for several generations would catch up to me. I have 6 or 7 wbs jars that are about 80-90% colonized but stalled due to bacteria. Will using these in tubs have a negative impact on the sub? Invite mold contains? Would you use them outside for a patch? Luckily I will be cooking up a batch of agar tonight. I still love g2g though. It was like a 5th generation transfer so go figure.
  8. Bags. Z tubs. G2G

    Ok so here is my next round of jars I have 5 strains this time A+, ALA, APE, AJAX, PE. I inoced all my jars April 7th. Will post updates as they come. Ooo also I used WBS with verm in the bottom of the jar.
  9. PC'g the last batch of jars now, should be cool by 8pm. Most of the jars are rye berries, and 1 is plain sd as an experiment. I'm going to end up w/a shtld of grainspwn by the end of the month--anybody want to swap samples? lmk. I fill my jars 2/3 to leave room to shake'm. Does anyone actually put 32oz in a quart jar? --Rr
  10. Grain to grain transfer is one of the best ways to expand your grain spawn greatly, using very little in comparison. In this tek I created 14 jars of grain spawn with one jar of grain spawn. However, 90% of contaminated subs come from contaminated grain spawn. It is VERY important that you be extra careful and practice sterile technique to the extreme. This is not one of those parts of the hobby where it is ok to cut corners. Use a glovebox or flowhood. Shroomology has a couple of excellent glove box techniques in the glove box tek section. First start by wiping everything down with iso alcohol including hands, arms, and jars completely. Bust your colonized jar of spawn to get it ready to pour. Next, loosen all the lids of the jars you will be transfering colonized grain to. You want to do this quickly to minimize exposure of air. Open up the jar of grain spawn and start pouring in some grain spawn into each jar, individually, by opening the jar, pouring it in, and closing it up immediatley. Shake your jars up very well, and its done.
