I had always just soaked WBS in tap water for several hours, drained 30minutes and filled the jars 3/4 to the top...capped with tyvek and plastic caps, cover top with foil....PC for 40-45 minutes, 1 hour if it contains whole sunflower seeds...

Dethhead tek...it works but there is no consistancy between the jars, some will be a little too wet some maybe a little dry...results are ok and yeild fairly well... I tried a few variations on this tek with really crappy results and with better more consistant results...to use this tek...invest in a good quality scale and liquid measuring equip...volumetric cylinder....bacterial contamss can occur...

Ryche Hawk Substrate...Tried a coulpe of very similar mediums...found better results using a coarse 7grain flour with the WBS and Vermiculite, left out the rice flour..fruited really well but havent actualy tried hawks tek using flax seed meal...

Tango 6....same basic method I had relied on a long time...it's almost fool proof...I say this because I am a fool that has screwed it up a few times...not his...my own...anyway, with his method, I recomeng a small amout of gypsum, it's like a wonder additive, as a fine powder it helps the grain to absorb more water with out becoming 'overwet' which leads to wetspot...

Oat groats, (whole grain) soak them for about 6 -10 hours...you should be able to easily pinch a grain in half and with a little extra force squish it...adding gypsum is a good idea although oats soak up alot of water anyway more than any other grain I had tried. fill 3/4 full in 1/2 pint or 1 pint wide mouth jars and PC 40-45 minutes...oats are a very nutritious substrate and have really worked well for me in the past....I only mention them because if you can get your hands on Flax Seed Meal....oat groats are available and provide better results.
