Why not rye cakes?
    #1549110 - 05/14/03 09:19 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I never see anything written about using rye for cakes and the one time I tried them before I could never get them to pin. Only one that pinned was from another batch that was in the fridge for like 3 weeks and they were just aborts. So why is rye mainly for spawning or casing? I dont understand why this substrate wouldnt act like any other in cake form.

I've heard of people making cakes from rye flour instead of brf, and it working fine. Never tried it myself though.

The only reason I can ever recall reading (and though I searched I can't find that post) was where someone discouraged using rye grain as cakes because "they were more prone to contams than a true cake made of grain flour". Not sure why this would be so, if the myc has successfully taken over the substrate.

BUT, a friend of a friend etc once had some small rye grain casings in clear containers. Because light was getting in along the clear sides, when pins formed on top, they also formed on the sides, so he was forced to remove the small casings from the containers, and treat them essentially like cakes. They continued to produce well (multiple flushes), so apparently it can be done, assuming all other parameters are right.

your inside is out, and your outside is in.

I think whole grains do better in filter-patch bags where you can shake them. Don't have to worry as much about exploded kernals and unevenly cooked parts and stuff. Rye flour works, though.

I don't know why they didn't pin -- you birthed them into a terrarium?
