What type of yeild from Quart sized cakes?
    #1128807 - 12/10/02 02:11 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I read in the faq that with the 1/2 pint sized cakes you can expect your yeild to be anywhere from 3-7 grams dry per cake, per flush. If you used the Quart sized cakes does it quadruple your yeild since they are 4 times bigger? Is 12-28 dry grams per cake per flush reasonable? What kind of yeilds have you guys got using them?

Not per flush, per cake, all flushes together.

My mistake! I wanted to use wild bird seed as a substrate by the way. Hmmm...well if they dont make a shoulderless quart sized jar, I could just use ones with shoulders and do a casing since I'm going to break them up and it doesnt matter anyways, right?

Yes you can. I usually hit about an ounce or so off of cased quart jars of birdseed.

Wow, 28 grams per jar! Thats some nice yeild man. Another question, how many CCs of spores should I use per quart jar? 2?

This is the only site i could find that explains the Birdseed tek.
http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/birdseed.html
But it uses pint sized jar. Anyone have a link or know of other teks I can search for that are more detailed or use quart sized jars?

This has worked out for me.

WBS Tek (Wild Bird Seed) Bulk Spawn Preparation Method.

WBS consists primarily of white millet. It is often a combination of white & red millet - with a small percentage of sunflower seeds and sometimes tiny amounts of crushed corn. Some expensive brands are coated with a fungicide. For use as spawn material, treated WBS is not advisable.

You can find untreated WBS in 5 -10 & 20 pound bags, at low prices at most large chain grocery stores, or chain type pet supply stores. For instance, PetsMart has 40 pound bags for around $9.

Simply place whatever quantity you intend to use in a plastic pot, tub or bucket. Bear in mind, dry seed will expand about 20 to 25% - after it absorbs its capacity of water. Add tap water & soak the seed overnight. A 8 to 12 hour soak is fine. Seed soaked longer will begin to ferment. But, is still usable after soaking 24 to 36 hours.

There is no need to remove any floating husks, or sunflower seeds. These add lignin (a good thing) & do not harbor any more possible contams than does the millet. It is all going to get thoroughly sterilized - anyway.

Once soaked, simply rinse the seed very thoroughly in a colander, or strainer. Then allow it to drain - WELL. As in 30 or more minutes. If it is drips - one drop. It is not drained - WELL.

Load pint or quart jars ? full, apply internal filter disk, material, polyfil or whatever method you use allow gas exchange through a ? or 3/8 inch hole in the lid. Screw lid on tight & back it off ? turn. Place a double layer of paper coffee filters over the lid & jar top, held down by a thick rubber band. Place the jars in the PC.

PC at 15 pounds for a full 60 minutes. 90 minutes is better, if you have the time. Allow the PC pressure to drop to zero & let it cool a bit. Open while still hot & remove jars. The paper coffee filters will dry almost instantly, when the PC is opened. Tighten lids (if necessary), shake jars to insure there are no clumps of seed inside. Place jars inside the oven on a rack, to cool, overnight. External coffee filters simply add another layer of protection to the jars content.

Once cooled to room temperature, store in a clean cardboard box - until used. Using them sooner than later is preferable. Note: This method was done in an All American PC. Some brands with a weighted pressure system require more internal water & it may be advisable to also cover the coffee filters with tin foil- while PC'ing, so no excess boiling water gains entry into the jars. Simply remove the tinfoil when you remove the jars from the PC.

Would 1/2 pints work just as well Ski?

Yeah they would, but in a way it seems counterproductive to use 1/2 pints, since a quart of birdseed colonizes in about the same time that a 1/2 of brf, you get what I'm saying?  :laugh:

stoner if i were use i'd use at least 4cc of spores per jar.
if you use 2 it will take too long to colonize

In reply to:

I haven't had any problems with 2 cc's per jar. Colonization of quart jars are usually complete within 3-4 weeks ( I know that some people report 2 weeks, but speed of colonization isn't all that important to me, especially if I can inoculate double the amount of jars by using 2 cc's.)

actually the answer is infinity....

You could use that one quart to spawn whatever you choose and depending on how much substate you spawn your harvest quantity is relative to that.....
