Water content is key, less is more... some brands of wbs are stickier than others... generally, the cheaper, the better.

yes but it wont shake as well as you want. shake as well as possible and the only thing is it wont colinize as fast if it doesnt shake good. Go with bags its the easy and best way to do so you can massage if you want I will send you like 3 to try them out once my order comes in so you can try and see if thats what you want but personally WBS is as good if not better. It shakes without that gypsom its better all around even in jars

Yes I do. Getting the water content right may take a little trial and error, but once you end up with jars 2/3 full of millet, you should be able to shake 'em without much trouble. Only move to gypsum if everything else fails... unless you have some lying around.

Most problems come from using too much water or grain. Once the jar is completely full, it becomes dificult to shake.

And I am speaking about wbs... finch seed... which is mostly millet. The cheaper the millet, the more shakable it seems to be.

Or you could just put the dry stuff in a jar, the starch is a nice goop for the mycelium to eat. Just add water and pc for 75 minutes. After a try or two, you'll be making the shakable stuff just fine, without rinsing, soaking, or gypsum.

This is automan's tek. I think he recomended 1/2 cup wbs and 1/3 cup of water per pint jar.

I hear about 1 in 15-20 will contam because you don't presoak, but that ain't bad for the time you will have saved. It also keeps the tek simple, so you don't screw up in other ways. Finally, it keeps the millet under control. The more you have to transfer it, the more it gets all over the place. That stuff is like a wicked combination of marbles and sand.

Aside from the trial and error, I like to fill the jars 1/3-1/2 with wbs (millet probably absorbs a little more water than wbs millet... cheap wbs uses the cheap millet... it is very shakable compared to the plump jucy stuff)... then add water till it covers the millet. Very ez... the tough part is using enough to mostly fill the jar without filling the jar to its top. You just get the feel for it. Everyone uses different water content. Soaking does work well, so does straining. Each type of millet absorbs a different amount of water... so trial and error is part of the game.

The simplicity of this tek... and the success rate, considering the simplicity, are why I recomend it.

The great thing about grain, is as you fuck up, you develop your own tek. I realy think everyone does it differently. You'll get a feel for it. Just buy some extra your first time out or you might run out before you have satisfactory jars. They hold a lot of wbs, or millet.
