Doing bulk with half-pints?
    #1663425 - 06/26/03 03:46 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Afoaf has 24 half pint pf jars and wants to expand to some bulk/straw.

Can he use his half pint jars with some WBS? He hasn't seen any bulk teks using half pints.
Does he just break it up when its colonized, mix with straw, throw in a box, and then when it's fully colonized case it? It seems like it's too easy, almost as easy as the PF-tek, and I can't understand why people wouldn't go straight to bulk if thats all that's different.

What good info would you give someone going from brf cakes to wbs/straw/bulk? What major differences are there?

I don't see why you couldn't use halfies for WBS, although most people use pints or quarts because with grain-to-grain, they'll colonize in no time flat.  Bigger jars = more spawn, also = more lost if contam'd.  It's really a matter of preferance.

As for using WBS in a casing, if you can case BRF, you've already got the hardest part down..  it IS as easy as breaking up the WBS cakes and mixing with straw- you can layer if you're anal retentive (no offense to layerers!  :wink:) or you can just mix it up good.. make sure you pastuerize the straw if you're growing indoors.  While waiting for the spawn to run through you'll want to cover your box with a plastic sheet with some holes for air and fan occasionally, a few times a day should be fine.  Once cased, let it be!  Mist if you have to, and get ready to reap the rewards.

Yea you can use 1/2 pint.. though to make it worthwhile they'll need to be filled up, so no room for shaking the grain. Not a major problem.. it'll just take a bit longer to colonise.
And yes bulk is easy, but I suppose one main reason people don't do it is lack of room.. there's no point spawning X gallons of straw if you've got nowhere to put it..

I had a feeling it was that simple and just wanted my suspicions confirmed. Thanks.
