Growing method to reduce taste :) ?
    #1126607 - 12/09/02 10:47 PM (14 years, 3 days ago)

I saw the previous thread about mushroom taste, and a little thought popped into my head.  I don't mind the taste too much (it does get worse every time, but if you imagine them like those organic potato chips but with no salt or taste, and throw them on PB&J or a pizza, you're set), but I wonder if there's a way to reduce or change the taste as they're actually growing?  I don't mean like basting them with steak sauce as they're fruiting, but....  :tongue:  The only time mushroom taste really bugs me is when it's the second day of a shroom-intensive weekend and it just gets to be a pain to get them down.

Go to the baking section of a grocery store and get one of those gigantic fucking chocolate bars, melt it in a non-stick pot(not too hot) and dip your mushies in there, just enough to coat it though. It should harden in a few minutes and mask the taste enough to choke 'em down.

just make tea out of them, mask the taste with herbs like mint which also helps ease your stomach. You don't even need to eat them with tea (strain them out) which in itself helps out on stomach problems....

To tea you make an infusion which means that boiling water is poured onto your whatever, in this case shrooms. I don't like to boil them as I think it hurts the goodies. Just pour the boiling water over them and let it be for about 15-20 minutes...

Or....
Just throw them in a blender with any kind of acidic fruit drink,  grapefruit juice works very well, and the natural acids help metabolize the alkaloids, which makes for a stronger trip with a faster onset of like 10-15 minutes, thats the way I always do it now. :smile:

Naw, you guys all missed the point of my question, but it's all good. Like I said, the taste really doesn't bother me all that much. If I have the tools, I make a smoothie with 'em. Easy to judge dose if you know how much you put in, plus it tastes great. Bacardi mixers (non-alcoholic!!) also work well. I just thought it'd be funny spraying them with maybe some breath freshener while they're growing. Just a random thought.

I'm actually working on something similar. I found some concentrated bubble gum flavoring. Just a few drops will flavor a bottle of water. I was going to use this in all of the water I use for growing and hope the shrooms absorb the flavor. I'm not sure if it will work, but I figure why the hell not try.

that would be great if that worked. incredibly awesome. i don't know shit about it, and some one will probably prove that this won't work, but, what the hell. give it a try, it won't hurt too much to give it a try on one cake or so.

I like experimenting and I don't care if I lose a casing. I'm pretty sure they will grow, but I'm not sure if they will absorb the flavoring. I think I will start my experiments tomorrow.

If you`re gonna spray your mush with breath-spray you might as well just use Jack Daniels.
In the end just like Isopropyl Alcohol, you will adversly affect growth.

In all likelyhood it will fail, but I think it will be fun to try. I don't care if I fail. Have you ever tried this? Have you ever heard of anyone trying this? If no one has tried it then whats the harm? Just give me one good reason not to try.

And it isn't breath spray btw. It is used to make some kind of candy. I have no intention of just spraying it on either. I am going to use it in the substrate. It does contain alcohol, but I plan on boiling it off.

Also, I'll be the first to admit that I'm fairly new at this, but I have done a lot more than just the pftek (actually i have never done the pftek).
