heres a little more micro gave me this.

.) Cut straw -> 1-3" pieces


2.) Pasteurize straw at 70 Celcius for 1 hour, making sure to wieght it down so it stays submerged.


3.) Drain and cool in a sieve or something for about one hour. Make sure there's no free water, but the straw should be damp.


4.) Mix colonized substrate *really well* into the straw in your bin, crumbling or mushing the substrate as much as you can. It's a lot less messy if you work with each half of a bin with one hand and kind of "turn" it, but the point is just to mix it really well.


5.) Compact it down into the bin so the top stays flat and it's all pressed down.


6.) Case it, cover it (I like saran wrap,) poke a dozen holes in it and let it sit at about 80F until it's all colonized. It won't look completely white like a cake, but it should be covered with mycelium and no further growth will be present in the next couple days.





Please note: people say their substrate temps rise above the room temp, so you might not want to go up to 85 F, but I have before and I've gotten good results. You might want to keep the high around 80 F to be safe -- up to you. Best thing you could do is stick a clean thermometer in the actual substrate.





With casing, I use peat and lime, but most people recommend adding vermiculite, too. Peat itself is not airy, so you have to crumble it between your fingers when applying the casing layer to make it airy. Adding vermiculite will help make it more airy, too -- the casing is up to you. I usually add about an inch for a straw casing.





For 12 quarts I'd add 1 to 2 quarts of substrate -- this is also up to you -- you can get away with using a lot less, but the more you use the faster it will colonize, so less chance for contam.





Cheers!

wbs is a mix of millet and sunflower seeds. and some other stuff i don't know about. ive never used that. i have used parakeet food thats mostly millet that works well.as long as you have a pc which i believe you do from reading your previous growlog. u should be fine.
u should be able to find wild bird seed in any pet store or wally world. u want to stay away from the expensive stuff its probably treated. basicly ur looking for millet, wild bird seed, or rye grain.
