Has anyone ever tried.....?
    #2137896 - 11/26/03 02:54 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Has anyone ever tried using malted barley as a grain substrate? I mean, if you can use cardboard and beer, this has GOT to work, hehe. Since the grain is malted and kilned, it has a ton of sugar for the myc to feed on and grow big and strong. I have started 3 half pints of crystal 90 (just cuz I had it) and innoc with EQ spores. I guess Ill let you know what happens. Just wonder if anyone else has tried it or considered it.

Well, heres the logic. Any roasted grain has already been pasterized once and the hull remains entact so Im thinking the chance of contams is less. Also, it shakes well like popcorn in the jars, better than WBS, but the kernels are smaller so you would have more innoc points when you spawn it. A nice by product is that it smells good when youre pcing it, more like a brewery rather than the STANK of WBS being pced. I used the end of my EQ spores on 3 jars so all i can do is wait and watch.

It seems that my mycelium loves barley.

I believe i had a strain of puerto rican.
I found an old pot of soil to which i introduced the mycelium long time ago. To my surprize the mycelium growth started once i introcued it to moisture; however it was week, so i figured to play with some grains i had.

I put it some whole barley and within days to mycelium was munching on it! No signs of mold growth to my surprize.

I had hard time with this strain with BRF/vermiculite method due to contamination and getting it to fruit. I am wondering maybe mycelium became resistant mold after some time in the soil.
