Grain tek questions
    #11203998 - 10/07/09 11:55 PM (8 years, 18 days ago)

I've already done pf tek and recently I heard about the grain tek which colonizes faster, and that it needs PC, is this grain tek as easy as the pf tek? Is it a lot better? Do I have to have an incubator?

What are the pros and cons of the grain tek?

It's better in some ways, worse in others. You probably don't need an incubator- but you do need a PC.
Grains are great for spawning to bulk in order to increase the size of your harvest. Lots of other uses too.

for me pf tek was in a way harder then grains. reason being, i couldnt do g2g with pf tek, and i couldnt spawn to bulk and have it come out correct.

i did one pf tek that worked, and moved to wbs and wont change pretty much.

Is this the easiest method?




It's easy. He's just casing straight grains there, which will work fine. You can also spawn those grains to a substrate like poo or coir.

I prep grains like RR does in his videos. I had tried a bunch of different methods, and that worked for me.
From there, you have a whole bunch of options, it's up to you what you want to do and how you want to do it.

Oh- Grain LC. One of the best things about grain jars.

i couldn't get a big enough needle to do grain lcs so i just do g2gs in a glove box.

Damn it, I just bought 3 cases(36 jars) of the 1/2 PT wide mouth jars for pf tek last night on amazon, and now I heard about grain tek which uses 1 QT big jars, but grain tek is still very fresh to me and seems confusing.

So I need to get 1 qt jar and some grains, is it the rye grain or the wild bird seed?

You can use half pints, just make more of them.
Rye is easiest to get right. Start with rye, even if it costs a lot more. Switch over to WBS once you can do rye properly. It's not hard to do, but it's harder than rye.

So I can use the 1/2 pt jars huh? But wouldn' it be more convenient to just get the 1qt jar?

Is that your WBS guide, Doc?

What about the one with Rye?

That's a different user, not me.
If you have the half pints, you can use them. Or take them back and trade for quarts. Either way is fine. But you can't use quarts to do cakes- so keep some.

"Rye, bitches, RYE!!!!" is a popular tek, but like I said, I do it like this: http://www.mushroomvideos.com/
