Anything better than BRF for PF Tek? (alkaloids)
    #1107145 - 12/03/02 03:11 PM (18 years, 8 months ago)


Many tek's (including PF) specify that brown rice flour should be used, but don't specify why. My guess is that it provides a longer lasting carbohydrate release than something like white flour would. Brown rice is much lower on the glycemic index scale than white flour, meaning that enzymatic cleavage of BRF molecules by mycelium would release energy at a much more controlled and sustained rate than white flour (which is very easily cleaved). This is just my hypothesis though...I could be completely wrong...but I just cant see any other reason BRF would be used preferentially.

Leading to my question...is there anything that would work better than BRF for the PF/MMGG teks? (perhaps rye flour?). My main interest in alkaloid content. I've read that BRF has low alkaloids, leading to lower psilocin/psilocybin concentrations, leading to weaker shrooms. This is to be my first growing experience, and I have access to a pressure cooker, but I'd prefer to use the PF tek, so I guess birdseed is out of the question. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I would reccomend getting a pressure cooker, and doing some grain tek's, I hear Millet is the best way to go for alkaloid production.
