There seems to be not a lot of info on what to do after your WBS is done colonizing.  You can case or spawn to bulk, but then what do you do?  Theres not much info on that, or maybe I'm just not looking at the right stuff.

you can't say that PF doesn't have the potential to give the well-read newb a decent first harvest

No I cannot. But I can say that a well read newb will "take the cake", if they try out grains.

"there's so much information on it"

So? There's so much info on grains. Less info is better, if it's accurate.

PF, and the internet. A match made in heaven. I mean, I wear Fila f-13s. I like retro when it works. But grain deserves attention from the start, that's what I'm saying. There is no "institution". It's the difference of $50, and desire. Cakes are fun. Spoon some up. But a big straw log could be fun to, first try. Or maybe some horse shit in a tub. Fun stuff. Who says PF tek?

steadyheady search the following....
monotub/dubletub/coir/colonizing mono/...then seach some details found in some of the threads that interest u...
after ur grain is colonized u need to decide to either spawn to something like a coir/coffee/vermic mix...poo mix straw w.e. or just fruit them (dont know why any1 would do so kinda beats the point of doing grain). now u decide to do a terrarium setup aka martha setup(can get very expencive and complicated) or something like a monotub setup(recomended not alot of care needed its cheep and produces more then enough for you and 8 buddys time and time agian) this is known as the set it and forget it method. now that u know what ur spawning to u need to choose a pasturizing method(few ways to do this some recomended for different subs). after u spawn to ur bulk sub. and ur sub is now colonized you either lay a casing layer down or go naked(no casing) recomend no casing for monotubs its realy just not needed for a newbe bulk grower. after this you watch learn pick eat do it all again. hope this helps. mostly u have to read about all the different ways and see what works best for you...like some1 said already

p.s ive been doing monotubs for the past 6 months and getting dam good at it(got 7oz dry after 3 flushes on a 30gal tub) so if u decide to go that rought and need advice help question just pm
forgot to awnser to the original question. bag pf tek unless testing strains and such. i jumpd right in to doing 30gal monotubs with 6qrts rye grain spawned to coir coffe vermic every time...love it

I've been inoculated yesterday my first four jars with rye,i'm a newbie and I never grow mushies before..
so it's time to write and first post here,this forum kick ass and it's really psyhodelic trasure chest!
I can say you that the optimal quantity of water in grain in beggining is little tricky,my first PC expirience didn't end well...rye was overcooked,dark,smelly..so I take second chance:
1.soak rye for about 24hours
2.drain it completly
3.clear grains from water with towel
4.after all this rye should not be wet or sticky if you take it in hand
5.fill the jars (hole on the top for inoculation)
6 cover the top with aluminium foil and put it in PC
7.wait while the valve is start to rotating(on PC),then reduce the      fire an cook 1hour

On second chance My sterilised rye has a little bit "gummy" feel under the fingers,I was put in pressure cooker small sample jar so I can test the rye...anyway, jars was cooling down another 24hours after cooking,there is no sign of water nor condensation in each of this jar
before inoculation???it is not dry,I repeat,little gummy on touch..so I don't know if this is optimal quantity of water for mycelium to rise. . After the completion I store jars on  30 celzius degrrees to start colonize....

so Is this ok if anyone knows?

because I am really become impatient ,not for eating mushrooms because it is a ritual for me,i just want to
make this first step to feel joy when i first see self growed mycelium Really appreciated any help or advice you might give me..cheers!!! 

and sorry for bad english!!
