You could soak it in peroxide and then drain...

adding some vermiculite or perlite to the hominy jar helps control moisture levels

Well here's my results with hominy so far. Took a little longer to pin than I had anticipated.

Here's my fully colonized jars.

Finally pinning

It's the small gladware container. 1qt of substrate. There are about 25-30 pins from the looks of it...

my own hominy, cased 10 days ago, is not yet pinning, still looks good, we've had a real heat wave here with several days of temps in the 104-106*F range so i think that stressed the mycellia quite a bit.
still, appears to have survived but growth slowed considerably during the heat wave.

we'll post more pix as "machine's" crop matures, most of the pins are still pretty small and hard to see on crap cam.

great news!
my sole surviving hominy is beginning to fruit.
12 days after 'casing' with scotts 3n1.
pins still too small for my crappy cam but soon.
so i guess that awful heat wave didn't kill it.
still i'm sure it didn't help.
more experiments are still needed and planned
but i'm still inclined to think canned hominy will prove to be a decent substrate.

i just noticed,
it's 6 weeks to the day since i started this thread.
and less than 5 weeks since we inoculated.
from spore to pin in about a month,
that's just about 'par'.
we're making progress.
we've proved cubie spores
will germinate, grow and fruit off canned hominy.
now to perfect the tek.

I would have to say hominy's doing ok as a substrate. These are my pins three days later. These are EQs.

btw, from the looks of it so far,
my pinset should be a bit better than that.
after the heat wave of last week,
we're now unseasonably cold,
i just had to fire up a heater in the grow shed.
should have some decent pix of mine to post in another
couple days.

I checked mine this morning and it is looking a little better. Both jars are in one container. It is cased with 50/50. Should have used coir but the pet shop was out. It's unseasonably cool here too..but still well above 70 during the day. I'm really growing to loath the heat.

Looking good. I harvested the first flush. 129 grams wet from two pints. Not bad...I'm sure I could do better. But it's obvious that hominy is a worth while substrate.

/me crosses fingers and waits for a refined tek to be put into the faq.
the shroomery should have an experimental substrate section in the faq, strictly to post the current methods for things such as popcorn, hominy, and haricot beans.

/me thinks letting the hominy drain fully will improve results.

afternote:
i think i made the casing too wet,
i proly should have used a bit less water to compensate for the hominy's high moisture content,
as the shrooms seem pretty water-logged.
this fact is also evidenced by the several shrooms which
are opening their caps while still quite short,
something i've seen before that often correlates with
excessive water content.
still, the pinset is very nice,
and the shrooms otherwise appear normal.
we picked off what appears to be about the equivalent
of a couple dry grams so a potency bio-assay is planned
in the near future.
will update as feasible.

ok, we did our bio-assay yesterday AM,
very pleased, quite obviously cubies grown on canned hominy have normal potency.
picked the pie clean this AM,
pretty nice flush in all,
only complaint was they all were short-ish
but they were plentiful. many sporulating,
so we also know now that's not affected.
i'll post a pic later of the flush drying.
btw, 2nd flush is already beginning to form,
i can see several tiny hyphal knots .

ok, here's a couple crappy pix of the pie's 1st flush [minus what i ate yesterday].
i ain't saying i'm real proud of it
but still it's not too shabby for ~1 qt of canned hominy.
esp. considering it's my 1st time thru with it.
i think i can improve my results considerably now that i have some experience with it.
and there's still more to come yet from this pie next flush.
