Fruiting
    #1665235 - 06/26/03 07:23 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all.. just registered for the site and am a first time cultivator. My main question is how much should I expect for a yeild when I have 20 jars soon to be in commission. My second question is about dunking... I've never heard of this before and was wondering why/how to do so without injuring or infecting(possibly) the cakes. Thanks for taking the time to read and or respond to my post

Hmmm... ok you should read the FAQ as well, but here at least is a dunking link http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/dunktek.html

Contams are a slight problem when putting something like this in a dirty fridge, but if you are careful you should be fine. For BRF cakes it is really easy too, the simplest way is to pour bottled water into the jar, close it up, tape up the holes, stick it in the fridge for 24 hours, take out, birth.

In terms of yield, if you have 20 brf cakes and none of them contam, then you can expect 20*7 grams dry about. If you are really lucky you could average more.

Thanks for responding to my post. I also have another question if you don't mind... I have to plastic tubs in my closet... One is in a water bath and shifts from about 79F to 85F(last time I checked), and the other is just sitting on the floor and maintains a temp of about 75-79F range.... which should I store my cakes in? Thanks again

It depends on what stage your jars are in. Since you are just starting, you are colonizing, so you want 86 degress if possible. Lower won't hurt, but it will just slow colonization.

By the time you get to the fruiting stage you should have read enough on here that you'll figure it out.

Grow Log
Tek : PF
Strain : South American [SA]
Spores : Came from homemade prints. 36 total jars to be injected.
Substrate :Brown Rice Flour [BRF] and Vermiculite [Verm]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10:15 PM 3/4/03 : Project is started. Jar prep is just putting small holes in the lids for the spore syringe and then taping them closed until inoculation. Tape used is the standard black electrical tape. First batch of jars is mixed. The mix used is 2 parts verm, 1 part water, and 1 part brf. [ This mix is the max fruiting formula by PF.] Mix is put into 1/2 pint canning jars lightly, not packed in, and left it airy. Put substrate in until it reaches the threads of the jar, then add dry verm the rest of the way.
Jars are PCd at 10psi or 240f for a period of 45 minutes. Then jars were left to sit overnight to cool.


8:39 PM 3/5/2003 : First batch of jars injected. (24 jars)

10:04 AM 3/6/2003 : Incubator is running to low 77F. Going to turn it up today.


5:45 PM 3/6/2003 : Second batch of jars is in the PC will be injected tomorrow. Turned up incubator runs at 83F. 86F is the best and if the incubator is 83F and myc growing in the jars is suppose to create a little heat I figure this should work out well.

1:11 PM 3/7/2003 : Second batch of jars is done. (12 jars)

12:10 PM 3/9/2003 : Jars are doing good, no signs of contams


2:54 AM 3/19/2003 : Tape removed from the holes today and coffee filters put over the top of the jars for added protection. Holes were opened so the CO2 in the jars could escape. I gave 12 jars to a friend who kept fucking up. 24 jar?s about 75%done.


12:13 PM 3/22/2003 : Well it's Saturday and the jars will probably be done by the 25th. So it was 36 jars. 12 were given to a friend, 24 done by Tuesday.

10:26 PM 3/23/2003 : 15 jars were done enough to put into dunk. I dunk and cold shock before birthing and after every flush. The other 9 jars have a spot the size of a pea that has to be covered so I'll do those on the 25th.


7:17 PM 3/24/2003 : 15 jars put into the pod. Put in and put a layer of moist verm on top. With geolite I just put the cakes on it. With some other chambers I put the cake on a lid filled with verm. This is done to give the shrooms on the bottom and the top of the cake some added moisture.
The other 9 jars just finished so I'm going to give them a couple more days to make sure the middle of the cake is done.


4:57 PM 3/27/2003 : 5 More cakes birthed today, 4 left going to do them tomorrow or 3/29/2003

3:58 PM 3/29/2003 : Well I lost another cake. My wife's little 1 cake pod made from a 2 liter and a small fish pump and a little geolite used up her last cake so I gave her a SA to grow. The last 3 are in the cold shock dunk.
So the total is 36 jars done all colonized with no contams. 12 given to a friend, 1 to the wife, 23 mine

12:08 PM 3/30/2003 : Last of jars put in

12:02 PM 3/31/2003 : The first 15 cakes are pinning nicely and some have shrooms coming from the bottom.


11:01 AM 4/3/2003 : Things look to be going well.


1:02 AM 4/4/2003 : Took the first flush from four of the cakes. More will be done later today.


5/8/2003 : Total 23 cakes 164 grams dried.

Magash, how many flushes was that total in?

Btw, many thanks for posting that log here, AFOAF is just now birthing 22 jars & his process looks similar to yours.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

4, then I had to get rid of those cakes to make room for new ones.
