Brown Rice Medicinal Method * 1
    #18296841 - 05/21/13 09:44 AM (7 years, 9 months ago)

I thought I might share how I have been preparing my medicinals. (T.versicolor, G.lucidum, etc..)

So, I fill large filter patch bags with undercooked, steamed-off brown rice, a teaspoon of calcium carbonate, and pressure cook for 2 hours.
These pics are beside a 5.5lb sawdust bag for size comparison.



Opened and inoculated with half-quart of rye spawn in front of the flow hood -

 

Colonized -



The block, which was slightly smaller than the sawdust block, weighs 9.5lbs.
I let it consolidate for a few days to a week.

I take off the bag, and slice it up.



I throw slices in the dehydrator for a while, to dry it enough that it grinds in my badass blender.



And then, I spread out the moist granules on a tray, and bake on convection @200°F until it's bone dry.



Which I then load into jars.



The ground mycelium then gets extracted in two crock pots for 2-3 days, so that I have constant supply.




Which, I just drink right from the pot. It doesn't taste too bad!

When the pot is done, I sieve out the granules, and extract them with alcohol.

Awesome seems very practical.
Would obviously be much faster than fruiting them all.
Well done .

Very well done Versicolor!
I like the idea of producing enough medicine to last a long time.
Can you elaborate on your brown rice preparation a little bit?
Also, do you use long grain or short grain rice?

Versicolor, have you tried this with any other species? Turkey tail and Cordyceps, perhaps?

Love sourdough like I do? Check out my sourdough starter trade thread.

Always on the lookout for new varieties of heirloom beets, carrots, radish, beans and soybeans.

My trade list.
