In the grain Faq it suggests:


Basic millet or birdseed recipe for 1 pint jar:

- 100g(3.5 oz ~ 140 ml) birdseed
- 80g(2.8 oz = 80 ml) water
- knife tip full of gypsum

Ive never ever seen or heard the recommendation of gypsum in a jar..I was under the impression gypsum was a PF buffer...why is it needed, or even suggested for birdseed jars?

Gypsum will help prevent the grain (or in your case the wbs) from sticking together, making it easier to shake the grain. However if you follow 6t's wbs tek then you shouldnt have a problem with it sticking together.

Ah yes...thanks All!...actually just after i posted this, i moved down the faq (im glad i looked it over again, now that im kind of established in the fundamentals of mycology) and read that it could be used to keep the wbs from sticking.
