Straw Substrait
    #1710842 - 07/13/03 05:33 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

FOAF has 3 quarts full of sterilized straw spawn. (In the process)

The straw was packed, sterilized, and spawned by a g2g transfer.
[Strain is Maz and grain was millet, if that matters: 2 1/2 pints in all]
Been 13 days and colo has reached 1/2 way down the whole jar.

Colonization has been slow, so I am worried about stalling and contam. Any prof straw experience he can benefit from?
How long should he give for colo to finish? Before casing what was colo'd.

No sense wasting good mycel.

On a better note, the 4th quart (experiment) wheat straw was dusted w/ brown rice flour has about 2-3 more days until it reaches %100.

Wait. Since you spawned it only on the surface it will take time for it to grow all the way down. Contamination should become visible by a stall, odor, discharge, discoloration or visible mold. Straw tends to colonize differently than other substrates because it is little strips with more air pockets than others.

you're making it too difficult for yourself.

next time, pasteurise a big load of straw (more contam resistant) then when it's drained, mix it well, or layer it, with the millet. you have to be clean doing this, but not necessarily sterile. make it a nice loaf-sized tub. then stick the whole thing in the cupboard for a week, with foil or something on top that has holes in for exchange. a weight is a good idea, too, to compress it a bit. when you go back a week later, you'll have a solid white brick with just a few frayed edges on top. a casing layer takes care of these.

Hey Shirley Knot,

Could you get Flat Eric to write that up in a detailed step by step procedure. It sounds great and I'm about to start getting into grains.

Been through pasteurised straw before. Cant seem to get it right. Contam left and right. New bleach/lime bath looks promising, but I am sticking w/ old methods.

I fig'd the straw would B a lovley source of nutrients for the spawn, and if it has the benifical bacteira or not wouldnt matter, only matters for a time thing I thought.

But you are right about makeing the layers, cuz it is a time killer. That and my friends incubator smells like cooked straw. =P
