Popcorn Cakes...?
    #1704961 - 07/11/03 04:23 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Can cracked corn or popcorn be used as cakes if they are made in 1 Pint sized jars instead of quarts.....and on the same note, can you make 1 quart jar into a big cake?

Just wondering.

I doubt you would ever get popcorn to fruit without casing. I had some sit uncased for 2 weeks or more. When I dumped some wet vermiculite on them they fruited in a few days.

I didn't even put the shit in a terrarium. One was in a plastic bag taped to the back of my desk, the other sat in a cardboard box.

It had to be one of the most half assed attempts at casing ever made, but I still got about half of what people normally get of the same size casing.


Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters. -- RR
