I had a few problems with WBS, but other people report great success with it. If possible use Rye Berries. They are the bomb!!! :thumbup:

Any brand is fine as long as it says "Organic" Rye Berries. I use Neshaminy brand, but all brands work just as well, as long as its organic Rye Berries. If you cant find a store that sells them, you an order them off eBay.

No need for organic; any food-grade grain is fine.

But there's no need for organic anything. If it's safe for you, it's safe for mushrooms.
Really, even animal-grade feed like cracked corn can be used, but rye or wbs work way better.

Isn't the importance of organic grains that they don't contain fungicides? Commercial food grade ones often do, I think, to prevent claviceps outbreaks. And could the grain treated like that support mycelium growth?

There's no 'fungicides' in commercial grain. This is pure FUD.

I have read the same thing. Even RR says to buy "Organic". All the rye bags in the health food stores say "Organic" Animal feed is treated with fungicides. Just like treated hay. I would know, I own horses.
But let's let someone with a "Trusted Cultivator" tag settle this for us.

It's this sort of logic that leads to people dunking cakes in Evian water.

But it's pretty harmless. If it feels good, do it. :thumbup:

lol i have grown mushrooms on WBS with 'added fungicides'. They must have washed right off or something, because my jars colonized fine.
