6T WBS Tek (Wild Bird Seed) Bulk Spawn Preparation Method.

WBS consists primarily of white millet. It is often a combination of white, red millet  & milo - with a small percentage of sunflower seeds and sometimes tiny amounts of crushed corn. Some expensive brands are coated with a fungicide. For use as spawn material, treated WBS is not advisable.

You can find untreated WBS in 5 -10 & 20 pound bags, at low prices at most large chain grocery stores, or chain type pet supply stores. For instance, PetsMart has 40 pound bags for around $8.

Simply place whatever quantity you intend to use in a plastic pot, tub or bucket. Bear in mind, dry seed will expand about 20 to 25% - after it absorbs its capacity of water. Add tap water & soak the seed overnight. A 8 to 12 hour soak is fine. Seed soaked longer will begin to ferment. But, is still usable after soaking 24 to 36 hours.

There is no need to remove any floating husks, or sunflower seeds. These add lignin ( a good thing) & do not harbor any more possible contams than does the millet. It is all going to get thoroughly sterilized - anyway.

Once soaked, simply rinse the seed very thoroughly in a colander, or strainer. Then allow it to drain - WELL. As in 30 or more minutes. If it is drips - one drop. It is not drained - WELL.

Load pint or quart jars ? full, apply internal filter disk, material, polyfil or whatever method you use allow gas exchange through a ? or 3/8 inch hole in the lid. Screw lid on tight & back it off ? turn. Place a double layer of paper coffee filters over the lid & jar top, held down by a thick rubber band. Place the jars in the PC.

PC at 15 pounds for a full 60 minutes. 90 minutes is better, if you have the time. Allow the PC pressure to drop to zero & let it cool a bit. Open while still hot & remove jars. The paper coffee filters will dry almost instantly, when the PC is opened. Tighten lids (if necessary), shake jars to insure there are no clumps of seed inside. Place jars inside the oven on a rack, to cool, overnight. External coffee filters simply add another layer of protection to the jars content.

Once cooled to room temperature, store in a clean cardboard box - until used. Using them sooner than later is preferable. Note: This method was done in an All American PC. Some brands with a weighted pressure system require more internal water & it may be advisable to also cover the coffee filters with tin foil- while PC'ing, so no excess boiling water gains entry into the jars. Simply remove the tinfoil when you remove the jars from the PC.

I would post pics, but for some weird reason, all that shows uip are red X.

6T :tongue:

And here is what you do with the WBS::

------------

1 quart WBS jar a la 6T. Inoculated with multispore syringe. EQ. or Tapalpa.

12 Quart PC pot filled with cut straw and composted cow manure with humus ( store baught ). pasteurized 1 hr 30 mins

Let cool in water, remove and squeeze in sink using 12 x 12 inch piece of wood to get as much water out as possible.

Set in strainer on top of plastic bucket, cover with paper towel to ward off dust.

Next day, line 2 gal plastic rubbermaid with tin foil ( clean bin with javex and water, wipe dry, then line with foil ) spray down foil with lysol, loosely cover with plastic lid, let lysol evaporate. the bins are lined with foil cuz light goes thru them after being cleaned with bleach a few times, and you will get pins on the sides.

while lysol evaporates, transfer poop/straw*( pasteurized together ) into clean rubbermaid container ( simply do this to ease up on mess, working out of a pillow case is messy and a PITA ), break it up and fluff it out, as it got packed down real good the day before and you don't want hard chunks.

Break up jar of grain into new, never opened before, plastic bag ( glad green bags ), crush up grain completely.

Layer some grain on bottom, add poopstraw about 1 inch, more grain, and using gloved hands cleaned with lysol, gently mead grain and poopstraw ( P.S. from now on ) add more grain, P.S., grain. P.S. until bin is filled to within 1 inch of lip.

Keep enough grain to make sure you can cover the top layer with a healty coating ie: 1/2 cup worth, don't measure, just make sure you have some left )

Make it airy, don't pack it down,, P.S. mix is about 30 % straw, 70 % comped poop.

Put cover on, let it sit for about 1 week, once the surface is completely colonized, or at least 80 to 90 %, add a casing layer, i use 4 parts verm 1 part peat moss, PC'ed in jars for later use.

Lay a 1/4 to 1/2 inch layer, by opening jar, and sprinkling it over casing, just enough to cover all the white mycelium blanket. Make the sides a bit thicker, seems to help even pin formation.. just an observation.

Put cover back on, wait about 3 to 5 days for mycelium to poke thru, patch the first signs of growth with a tiny amount of verm/peat. incubate anoter 2 -3 days. and then remove lid and fruit away.

What is an internal filter disk, and what can be used as a substitute? Where does it go in the jars, and when is it removed? Thanks...
