Rehydrate the cap but the chances of contamination are about 99.9% i'd say, so good luck let me know how it works out for you.

sterilize a small piece of wet egg carton in a 1/2 pint jar .
use tweezers to place a gill from said mushroom on the cardboard, and incubate at 80-84F .
if and when the gill turns white,(give it a couple of days)inject some liquid culture medium  with with h2o2 into the jar .

if this doesn't make sense to you read the FAQs on this site, and at nansnook until it does .

that's what i did, and now i am a happy man .  :laugh:

If there are some viable spores left in it at all couldnt you just put it in a jar with some corn syrup? contam would prolly take over but thats just from whats on the cap... thats how I would try it at least... but im just a newb

true . that's why most of the pros use agar .
i use the cardboard because  most  contams don't like it .(another thing i learned here on the shroomery message boards)and h2o2 keeps them in check  :smile:
win some lose some . but, when you win with somthing so simple it is sweet .
