WBS/millet cakes
    #2126778 - 11/21/03 08:04 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I'm considering trying the WBS or millet substrate route because of the lack of vermiculite in my area. What i want to know right quick is if WBS/millet cakes fruit well in cake form? as good or better then flour/verm cakes? would i be better off just staying with the brf/verm cakes? Im not realy ready for casings yet i want to do one more run of cakes before i try that.


That's not pretty cool.

Grain = not cakes
PF style (BRF/Verm) = cakes

Grain is used for innoculation of bulk substrates like dung/straw/compost. It will not serve as a good cake substrate, for a few reasons: 1) It won't hold its form, 2)Will just dry out without a protective casing layer, 3) probably will contam.

Stick with the PF style cakes first. After that, you can try casing, but, you should try casing your PF cakes, and not using grain yet.

You can't find vermeculite? Thats weird. Well, Im sure you could get some sent to you via the internet.

grain cakes will hold together when fully colonized, but like ^^^ said they don't hold water very well.

i've done a pint jar with peat moss and wbs that did ok..

there are alternatives to verm !!!!


Sniff, Sniff... What's that smell???... ohhhhh.!!
