Changing up my concoction.
    #11300113 - 10/22/09 04:41 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Hey guys.  I have a minitub going right now thats coir/verm/coffee/gypsum

Used 2.5 quarts spawn, 4 qts coir, 3quarts verm, 2 quarts coffee, and .5 quarts of gypsum.

However, I'm about to do a new tub, using 4 quarts of spawn.  Gonna use 8 qts coir, 4 qts verm, .5 qts gypsum.  I couldnt acquire any coffee grinds today, but I'll brew a few pots of coffee in an attempt to get like .5 qts of spent coffee grinds.

I know coffee is for nitrogen content, and I understand that its encouraged to change up your ingredients whenever you want.  I just wanted to know what you guys thought I should do and whatnot.

Any feedback?  Strain is Blue Meanies(MS). Using WBS in quart jars.

IMO coir needs  N boost that's where coffee comes in.  You can brew a pot of coffee and use the coffee in your water to pasteurize.
Other than that your mix will work.

Coffee in my water to pasteurize, why didnt I think of this.  Thanks CH HELL.

Any other ingredients I can throw in my bulk sub to get it to kick ass?  I have some peat moss and hydrated lime, but thats only good for casing layers right?

Oh but also, are you sure putting the coffee in the water is a good idea?  Thats just like using unspent coffee grinds right?  I thought you were supposed to use "spent" grinds for a reason.  Wouldnt adding all of that coffee and caffeine negate the very use of spent grinds?

Caffine has very little effect on myc.
Weak coffee or spent coffee grounds are fine.
Here is my additives thread,  I am still working on it so if you have any question pm me.

Thanks man.

Ok so my water levels keep rising and spilling everywhere, everytime I empty some out it just rises again.  I didnt have to jampack my pillowcase into my pot but its pretty stuffed and touching the sides of the pot.  I have it raised off the bottom so we are good there, and I have a rock on top to weigh it down.  Any pointers?  I've done this 10 times and I still never feel like I've got it down.  Do I need a lid on it?
