Substrate recipes for edible species ?
    #18702434 - 08/14/13 01:50 AM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Hi everyone, glad to have joined the shroomery.hope i can get all the help i need.

Ok so id like to know if anyone can share their bulk substrate recipes for gourmet mushrooms specifically these ones but preferably the ones that give the highest yield.I have hardwood pellets,bran,gypsum,coffe grounds,coir,worm castings,cow manure compost,sheep manure compost and maybe within the next month or so i should get some hardwood woodchips.




Chicken of the woods


Black poplar

Also is it beneficial to add a casing layer to any of those mushrooms ?

Thank you !

I use a mix of hardwood pellets, gypsum, about 10% wheat bran, then throw in a handful of aspen shavings (find em in the pet bedding section for snakes) and sometimes a handful of compressed wheat straw pellets. 

I would avoid coffee due to increased chances of contamination.  You don't need coir in there. 

The worm castings and compost tend to be more for the soil loving mushrooms like agaricus.  Perhaps they won't hurt, but you don't need them.

Remember to sterilize when you add bran (pasteurizing is ok if not using bran). 

I have not grown maitake and chicken of the woods.  For the others you do not need a casing.  Some people like to case their black poplar.  I don't.
