Fungicide in brf?
    #1213815 - 01/13/03 08:48 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I'm going to start growing soon now, but I want to make sure that normal brf will work. Or does it have fungicides in it, or somthing else that would kill the mycelium.

Could somebody clearify? Would one kind work and another not?

I have used Mahatma plain ole brown rice (grind it in a blender) for years. Speaking of grinding. My wife has been wanting a KitchenAide mixer. These mixers have a power takeoff that you can attach other KA devices to. One of these devices is a grain mill just for grinidng into flour!! It's adjustable for coarse-fine too! They are hella expensive (~$400 with the grain mill) but it would make the wife happy and save the blender.

the issue is whether the brown rice was treated with fungicide. fungicide kills fungi and that's not good when you want to grow fungi. organic rice is not treated with fungicide by definition. non-organic rice may or may not be treated with fungicide and the container will almost certainly not tell you if the rice was treated with fungicide. the only way to be sure your brown rice flour is not treated with fungicide is to buy organic brown rice flour. otherwise, it's a gamble on whether it will work or not.

has anyone ever discovered their brown rice to be treated with fungicide? I tried Mahatma years ago and have never tried anything else. why mess with success?
