Best spawn... WBS or RYE Berries.

What spawn would be better and easier to prepare? I've been using WBS but the whole 24 hour soak, than draining is getting old, any other better methods being used for creating spawn, I don't have bags, just quart jars.

They are usually prepared pretty similar.

I like WBS because its cheaper and I am used to it. :wink:

Why dont you just experiment... you'll come across whats best for YOU.

I am personally a Rye guy but to each his own. Check the bulk bins at your local organic food store for Rye ( I get it for 40 cents per lb ) and you might check your local pet store for WBS.

WBS is said to be dirtier than rye. that's why we soak it beforehand to wake up all the contaminants and get them out of their cysts so we can kill them in the PC.

Rye is easier to shake and use as spawn because it separates easier since the seed isn't as broken up as WBS less starch escapes to glue everything together.

Rye=better.

WBS is easier to find so it is more popular. anyone serious about this tracks down rye.

but is it not true that WBS has way more surface area then rye thus making it better as spawn?

Depends on the seed I suppose.

Lots of millet more corn or sunflower seeds could change the surface area.
Hell you could use wood chips if you wanted or shredded cardboard but it wouldn't pour worth a shit.

Rye is just easier to pour and less prone to contamination since it is used for human consumption (health food stuff anyway) I would hope it's cleaner than bird feed!

What you prefer,what you can find,what you can afford,what you have room for...it's all a compromise.Just cook it till it's clean.

RR and a lot of growers here maintain that rye is a better substrate, but it's given me nothing but problems. I've used WBS and had a lot more success. My suggestion would be to give both a try and decide for yourself- they're pretty cheap and having two different grows would give you a backup in case one of the grows goes sour.

I will offer a couple of tips, though: add a tiny bit of gypsum to help prevent clumping and to make it easier to shake. Also, pay attention to moisture level- it's best for it to be a little bit dry than a little bit wet. Especially if you're making a large batch, waiting for it to air dry can be long and annoying, so I just add dry verm until it reaches moisture capacity. The easiest way to tell when that's happened is to press a piece of paper towel against the substrate: there should only be a little bit of dampness on the paper towel.
