    #1915993 - 09/14/03 06:40 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Im gonna go as far as to say that ive mastered the pf tek. I dont want to try casings but I would like to try a different substrate for cakes other than brf, verm, water, If there is another reliable way. Is there?

I'm colonizing wheat bran/verm cakes now, they are going well. I have a feeling they will produce several healthy flushes for a few reasons,

1- The wheat bran is higher in nutrients than is BRF.
2- The wheat bran is coarser, I don't think it will be used up as fast by the mycelium
3- The bran also holds water really well maintaining and absorbing moisture.

But then again, they are still just colonizing so meh.

I use rye grain. You have to take long sterility precautions, but the results better for me. It is much easier in my opinion, just soak grain for 1 day, then boil for 15 min, then add to jar with 1/3 disstilled water, then pc for 45 min., then innoc. and store. Full colonization in two to three weeks.

I hate to be this guy but...  you can find all the answers to your questions and detailed intructions for the PF Tek method via the search bar.  There is much to read and to much to explain.

Good luck!!

I'll admit though that searching up variances of the pf tekl with other flours gets confusing...lots will say use a pc others will say don't bother some wil say wheat works better others say it's too sticky........adjustments will be needed and blah blah blah:lol:

I'm a bit suspicious that some rye flour cakes I tried in a water bath went bacterial due to insufficient sterilization.  Not sure though, the syringe I used was from an a print that went through open air, so it's hard to say.

Rye is a bit stickier for sure.  Any flour that forms gluten will probably have a slightly inferior texture.  It's definitely workable though.

If you have a PC you might as well do grains.  There is a tendency when learning to want to go step by step.  Like, ok, whole grain PF cakes, sounds cool, but then really you're just wasting PC space sterilizing verm for no reason.

That is exactly my problem! Seeing so many different people saying where the best place to start is. It's overwhelming. I didn't mean to steal this old thread so I started my own explaining things in the noob forum. I appreciate the answers already though!:smile:
