Rye is on First, What's on Second? Your Opinion Please!!!
    #11961062 - 02/04/10 01:17 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

My research and experience suggest rye is the very best spawn
for bulk.

IF rye is the best, what is second best?

Your opinions please!



(My limited experience is with brown rice, rye, wbs, and millet.)

Probably WBS, it's also cheap and easy.

Brown rice is actually even better but more expensive.

OK, I've read this before and I remember it as being a tradeoff
between rye and brown rice.

Whole grain rye just seems easier to work with and therefore
possibly more reliable than whole grain rye.  Making cakes
with brown rice flour is arguably a lot of work compared to
whole grain teks but also super reliable.

So far a good summation(?):

1. Brown Rice Flour
2. Rye Berries
3. WBS
4. ?

Can brown rice be prepared in the same methods? i was not aware that it was good for spawn.

popcorn

a $1.50 bag of jiffy pop will fill 3-4 quart jars

works great

just remember that the kernels always turn red and pink when they colonize. and this is not a contam.

Wheat Berries.
Costs about the same as Rye, is often available in the bulk food section when Rye is not, and seems to be functionally equivalent for all I can tell.

I should say that I haven't tried WBS yet, and many many folks swear by it here.

Some claim using whole brown rice with success.  Most use
a combination of brown rice with vermiculite.

Brown rice is generally not used directly as bulk spawn alone.
Normally it is ground to course flour, mixed with vermiculite,
etc and then broken up to spawn bulk.  (The original PF Tek
extended to bulk).  With such methods, it is excellent spawn.
