plug spawn?
    #11772099 - 01/05/10 08:32 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

i just ordered 1000 uninnocculated 3/8 wood dowel plugs for oysters and shitakes. hopefully!

teks? tips? advice?

how about pushing plugs into a supplemented ( or not ) straw log? too little spawn?

oh wait, thish should be in gourmet and medicinals, huh?

when I used dowels I used RR rye grain prep :shrug:

I soaked a lil over 24hrs so they sweeled with water then I boiled them to steam dry in a strainer then loaded in qt jars and PCd them @ 15psi for 60-90mins.

this link helps a lil.

yeah, that's the only link i found on it that kinda had what i was looking for, and your procedure is pretty much what i was thinking. a big part of the reason i'm doing this is to send a jar or two to my father-in-law who's interested but isn't into the science work. he's got a couple of woodsy acres with a little wetland. perfect place for logs. plus he's always choppin' trees and shit.

anyway like i said i wanted to send him some jars of plugs but i found this in that thread.

It's not the best idea to use glass jars for dowel colonization, though. If left for too long, you may break the glass trying to get them out.




about how many did you get in a jar? qt i assume?

I put 1 cup in per qt, I never realy counted.:shrug:

it left plenty of room for shaking and wasnt any harder to get out than any other grain. :thumbup:

If left too long, they will be really hard to break up, but if you use or refrigerate shortly after full colonization, they break up easily.

Be sure to send your dad some bees wax or paraffin to paint over the wounds from drilling and hammering in the plugs.  Did you get the dowel pins from Chicago dowel?
