NEED ADVICE - Finchseed Pressure Cooking & Inoculation
    #2290733 - 01/31/04 11:52 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Greetings all,

1. What is the downside to oversoaking finchseed (to the point where it just begins to germinate) and then pressure cooking it?
2. When preparing the quart jars, how effective are coffee filters instead of Polyfill or filter discs?
3. Can finchseed be over-pressure cooked to the point where it cannot be inoculated?
4. After multi-spore inoculation of the finchseed jars, when should I start seeing mycelial growth. (It's been 5 days since inoculation and I do not see anything).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1: when soaked too much to the point of germination the sugars begin to break down, and make for a less suitable substrate
2: they're not nearly as effective, as they can still let in contams. however, they are usually suffcient with proper sterilty conditions.
3: if the finch seed gets burned, the sugars will break down and you will be left with an unsuitable substrate.
4: depending on conditions, a week, sometimes less, sometimes more.

not really advanced, but whatever. not sure if those are correct answers, but they seem right.

2. I have never had a problem with using no filters, just foil covered top. So if coffee filter is all you have then you're likely to be ok, just make sure you cover the filter with loose foil.

4. As early as 24 hours (need a good eye for that early), as late as even 4 weeks. General average is about 3-5 days.

Thanks for the help so far.

I pressure cooked the finchseed @ 15 psi for 1 hour. They definitely look browner after the pressure cooking. What does burnt grain look like?

I went through a living hell with the Rich Hawk Magic BRF formula posted in the Cultivation Tech. The formula does not say "wash the finch seed before use"!! WASH THE FINCH SEED to rinse off the fungiside that is applied to the seed. Not much point in soaking more than 12 hours. Good Luck
