Not enough BFR
    #2248041 - 01/17/04 11:53 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I just made 6 pf tek jars and im not sure but i don't think i used enough BFR. I sort of eye balled it but im sure its close to the right amount. Just wandering because the mixture didn't turn out whitish after adding the BFR like it does in pictures i've seen. Whats gunna happen if i did put not enough BFR in it? THanks

the brf is the nutrients for your shrooms to grow on. so if you didn't use enough then you'll probably still be able to colonize the jar, but you might not get as many flushes, or they might be smaller flushes, it could also possibly slow the whole process down. now if you use way too much your cakes will be too dense probably and then you'll be incubating the jars forever. why don'y you just measure out the amount of brf you're supposed to use, get some measuring cups or something, if this is your first time i would try to do everything by the book, so i dunno i'm not that knowledgable but that's what i think will happen.

it turns whitish after inoculation. when the healthy white mycelium colonizes your substrate it's going to be white.

If the amounts are approximately right you don't have to worry. :laugh:
