When making a corncob innoculant should i use cakes that have just been birthed, ones that are fruiting, or should i use cakes that are done fruiting? or does it even matter at all? (CornCob Mycelium Slurry) well...i went and done it....i mean my neighbors pet beaver went and did it
i cut the recipe in half and tried it just for shits...seems like the corn shells may be tuff for mycelium to break down...lets see what happens, cant hurt to try..only out half a cake anyhow, right? 12 hrs later...no signs of anything, kept at 78 degrees (incubator is occupied)

Yes a regular corn cob, like he said, feed stores sell them as bedding for the animals... and he is talking about a fully colonzied cake, that HASN'T started pinning yet, just take your fully colonized cake out of the jar and throw it into the blender...
Fresh cakes. But good luck. I never liked this tek. It had a lot of potential, but I never felt like the bugs were worked out. I never got very good growth from cob. You certainly can't fruit it directly. And even using it as spawn, it's low nutrition which makes it contam resistant makes it useless as one of the main purposes of spawn; boosting the nutrient base of a bulk substrate.
Not trying to diss you. Just pointing out that although that tek is in the tek section, most cultivators who have tried it didn't use it very often if at all past the experimentation point.
If you do want to work with it, use fresh cakes. Maybe you can work some of the kinks out and get consistent results. I was there at the invention of cob, and I never figured it out to a point satisfactory to me. Maybe you have different goals or different ideas though. I wanted it to replace grain, and it's low nutrient base falls short on that.
Good luck and post your results. I've personally recieved a revival in questions on the subject and would like to see a new generation of "mad scientists" (jaff was the original) work on the idea.
