Getting ready for my first grow. Advice appreciated.
    #11315874 - 10/25/09 02:21 AM (8 years, 26 days ago)

I have a friend that is going to donate a mazatepec syringe to get me going.

I went out and found a nice 16 QT PC with a rack at Walmart "it was on sale" Sticker was 68 but I got it for 52, I can fit 8 Pint jars in it and it will go up to 15 PSI. I also got some Pint jars as they were out of 1/2 Pints, some vermiculite and perlite, Brown Rice and I found some Rye Flour.

Should I use the rye flour, stick to the brown rice or mix them? I would like to do grain since I have a good PC but I cant seem to find good info on that method, I only found good info on pf tek. Should I start off with the pf tek till I know a little more or should I jump into grains? I like the way the shrooms look in shallow tubs more than growing on cakes.

Any advice here is much appreciated.

Start with the PF tek...If you want to do a couple of test jars with WBS then I can link you a good TEK but don't count on it that they will make it.

honestly, I would go with PF Tek, very easy, low costs, and the fruits and be good.  Just do the pf tek for your first time.  Follow it to a T and you will be successful.  Once you get your first grow and see how it works, then the other teks will make a lot more sense for ya.


So again, pf tek at least once or twice for you first time, then move to more.

here is a link for you with pf tek videos part one through four!

To the OP, this is what my pet rock did.  He started with 8 pint jars (like you it was having a hard time finding 1/2 pint widemouth jars untill he came to the realization that regular 1/2 pint jars were actually widemouth; only with the Ball brand I might add) with the PF Tek.  He then used the leftover 2cc's in the syringe to start 4 LCs (liquid cultures) to make sure that if (more like when for newbies) his first try at growing got all fubar'ed with contam, he'd have a plethora of innoculant to practice with.  Even if the LCs were contam'ed in the end, he still had something to produce growth and test to see if he had the proper skills to be the major contams like trich.

I suggest going along the lines of my pet rock for your first grow because he started off with just one syringe like you.

(P.S. I'm drunk, so if this sounds weird, gimme some slack)

I just started my 2nd grow. I'd advise sticking with the PF tek until you've done it succesfully a few times, it was made for people with no experience.

This is good advice.  I always suggest cakes for the first grow just like I did.  Within a week tho I had moved onto grains and agar.  I had fruits from my grains before cakes tho

Well, since you ran right out and bought a pressure cooker, that shows a good, serious attitude about the project :grin:

IMO if you're still able to you should take that PC back and spend 20-30 more on the 23 qt presto (can find it on amazon with free shipping). It's got a gauge on it so there's no guessing, and can fit a ton more.

If you're going to go with PF tek, those pints will work (especially if sterilized and sealed properly), but you'll end up waiting a lot longer. You can do 2, possibly even 3 batches of 1/2 pint cakes in the time you can do 1 pint PF cake. I recommend if you are, making lids with injection ports and a gas exchange filter, because as long as they're going to take, you need extra measure of defense against contams.

If you're going for grains, there are plenty of teks

Look at a few to compare. You just need to get them so that they hold enough moisture inside, but aren't slimy/sticky/soggy on the outside so the myc can colonize them easier.

I was wanting a 23 QT PC but couldnt find one around here and I didnt want to wait for one to be shipped.

I found some 1/2 Pint jars today, they are not the wide ones but I think they should work fine. What do you think? I can fit 24 of these half Pint jars in my PC if I stack them but I could only get 8 Pint jars to fit.

Should I use that Rye Flour I found at Walmart? Im thinking of doing one BR, one RF and one half and half just to see what happens.
