Increasing substrate ph (Lime while pc'ing popcorn kernels)
    #1568846 - 05/22/03 12:11 PM (15 years, 3 days ago)

I have been using popcorn with LGM innoculation in pc'd ovenbags very successfully
so far and today I thought of an idea. As I've understood it, psilocybe mycelium prefers a slightly alkaline environment while trichoderma and the like prefers a more acidic one. I do not know the average ph value of popcorn but I assume it's around 7 (correct me please?). Anyway my thought is as follows...

I prepare my popcorn by 1h pc - 1/2h strain - 1h pc in ovenbag.
What if hydrated lime was added to the initial pc'ing water? Then a slightly alkaline
water would hydrate the popcorn kernels which would create an even more suitable
environment for the mycelium and less so for contams.

I couldn't find anything about this through the search engine but if it's an old idea
then my apologies...

It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black

Only thing I could find that was similar, hope it helps.  :cool:

Lime Bath 

Try it out and let us know if it works.
Maybe even just using the lime in a presoak would work.  just my .02 

I was once a man I used to know
He changed into a man I have been
And became the man I am today
