hippies caffeine dunk ***results posted***
    #2272833 - 01/25/04 11:02 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

****update***
                Results as promised. All of my cakes dunked this way contamed. They all got some kind of brownish slime on them. All of the pins they grew either grey skinny, short, or aborted. So as far as I can tell this myth has been busted.:cool:




I hope posting others ideas from other msg boards isn't a big no no.  If so delete this.  Before I start I would like to say that I read this tek over at mycotopia. So the idea isn't mine its hippies.



    I guess the idea behind it is that caffeine stimulates pin formation. The tek calls for diluted coffee in your dunking water.

    There was concerns with contams because if you leave a cup of coffee out for a few days it grows mold. So I am trying this out using diluted black tea. I chose tea because I've left cups of tea sitting out for days and didn't see mold. Also because I think * could be wrong* that black tea has more caffeine in it.

      Anyway back to the experiment. After removing all fruits from the cakes  I took them, one group going on its third flush one going on its second and dunked them for 12 hours. ( my usual dunking time )


  Now two days later these cakes  have LOTS of pins on them.  Some of them are already about an inch in length. So far i have zero contams. I am no cultivation expert but as far as my experience goes this seems to be a really short amount of time to have pins.

    This idea looks promising so far. what do you all think?
   


I haven't seen any talk of this tek here so I thought I'd toss it over here.
I'll keep you posted on any progress if there is some interest shown.

yes you can grow them straight out of the jar but the yields are shitty.good if you don't have time to deal with it and have a spare jar or two.

Responding to the initial post, coffee sitting out probably is much more likely to mold because of added cream and sugar, things most likely not added to tea.

I seriously doubt mushrooms have the receptor that makes caffeine active in the human nervous system. Maybe it could help in some other way though, but this seems unlikely.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

****UPDATE****

        Results as promised. All of my second and third flush cakes dunked this way contamed with some sort of brownish slimeyness.  The cakes did grow lots of pins. Though they all stayed skinny/short or aborted. So as far as I can tell this myth has been busted. :cool:








Heres the link
http://www.mycotopia.net/discus/messages/2/96317.html


I figured it was worth a look at. I certainly seem to have more pins faster with this tek. I don't have a fair comparison really though.

  These cakes are all the same strain. So I suppose I could compare the coffee water second flush with the other that is on its third now. That one was dunked normal for the second flush. Although they are in separate PMP setups I'd imagine it would be decently fair.



**update** 5 hours later.  More pins have popped up. Still looking healthy. 


--------------------
That's not pretty cool.
