this is the way to do it!
    #1830964 - 08/19/03 08:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

what I've been doing for the better part of the summer is making patches, but now im preparing for winter, so I have some advice and also a question. My method so far has been mixing old cow shit (picked from a field) with old hay (cut into 2 inch long pieces) and soaking it for days on end (we call it stroop; straw+poop=stroop), then making one layer of stroop (3-4 in thinck) a layer of myc (about 6 jars), and a thin layer of the stroop, and top it off with a little topsoil. this has worked like a champ, theres been harvest a plenty, BUT the winters here get mighty cold, so Im concocting an intoor plan.
I want to case with the stroop, a layer of stroop, layer of myc, layer of stoop, in a rubbermae tub. but should I sterilize the stroop for a casing? and you you think it'd work well?

thanks all, feel free to try the stroop idea, it'll work for you!

Uhhh, mixing it in is MUCH more effective than layering it

just my 2 cents...

I don't think mixing makes that big of a difference. I would stick with a non-nutritive casing layer. You are gonna want to pasteurize the stroop too.

Well the more mixed it is, the more points of contact with mycelia, the faster it colonizes... you decide if faster colonization is better or not....

Personally I think layering is better if you are using straw in the mix.

I have seen opinions for either case. At any rate, the main thing is not to have any straw poking out of the top, or have any uncolonized substrate exposed. I would treat it like a straw bin personally.

M2$ do not sterilize or over pasteurize the stroop . the green will getchya .
the main thing is to kill the larva and eggs in the poo .(damn bugs)
i have a similar thing going on, but i call it spooge .
