Here's some pics of my 1 week old cakes with coarse wholemeal rye flour, and pics of a 3 weeks old brf cake.
I wanted to try this because brown rice flour is very expensive in my country, compared to rye flour. So I made the cakes, and after the first week the result is very promising so far. The colonization looks very healthy, and it seems to colonize really fast compared to my brf cakes. The mycelium also look like it grows more even, has more density than the brf cakes, and not so much moisture in the containers.
The large containers are also 1 week old, and the one with the best colonization has rye flour. The other one has brown rice flour. The container with rye flour has all 4 corners colonized, while the brf container only has 2 corners, with just 2 small spots.
The 3 weeks old small container with brf has Equador spores, the rest of them has Thai Lipa Yai spores. Maybe it's incorrect to compare since the strain is different, but the same result appears in the large containers with the same strain.
But I still think it looks very promising. If it all goes well this will be my first attempt to birth and fruit.
