Addition of beer to substrate
    #2337057 - 02/15/04 01:25 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I was wondering if anyone ever added beer toa substrate for added nutrients. I know that adding a small portion of beer to outdoor flower beds helps increase growth and I just wondered if anyone ever did any work with it and mushrooms. Since beer is high in carbs it seems like adding it to a substrate prior to sterilization might give some benefits.

My coffee experiments were done simultaneously with beer experiments. The beer helps a bit, but nothing to brag about. One thing to be absolutely sure of, let the beer sit and get flat or boil it before using. The alcohol is bad for mycelia. In my case the beer was used to hydrate grains of rye. Colonization was a bit faster, but not much. Pinning didn't seem to be affected one way or the other.
