You said you go to a little over 400mL of water for agar, would you do that with the standard 10g agar-agar 10g malt extract? Or do you scale the agar and malt down since the standard recipe normally calls 500mL water.

I didn't know there was a standard recipe. I use 2% so that's 8g for 400mL. Or 20g/L

If I’m using fluorescent lights, how close do they need to be to the tubs?

Honestly, it doesn't really matter the distance...just if the sub is getting light. It's not like pot where you have set the lamp heights a certain distance from the plants. I'd the closer the better, but really its not a huge factor. :shrug:

Someone correct me if I am wrong but I would add that if your light, or flourescent lamp balast, generates heat you would want it far enough away that the heat is not warming the substrate/tote.

These were inoculated on 9/23 with MS syringe.  (Also posted this in the general discussion forum and got some help).  Not sure if my eyes were playing tricks on me or I was seeing what I wanted to see but I realize now it was just part of the grains.  I did have my temp to low though so I’ve got that adjusted.  I’ll see how it goes in the next couple days and if nothing happens...  I’ll start a new batch.  Have plenty of agar plates going:)

"The cakes only need to be misted a couple times a day,"

ONLY a couple times a day? What about those of us who work and only have a little bit of spare time in the evening? Even worse, I'm often away from my apartment for more than 24 hours at a time, either because of business trips or because of going somewhere after work (and possibly staying overnight).

I can't see anything other than a largely automated system working for me.

Hey Bod,

Going to do 3 x 1 quart jars of oats today.  Any recommendations on cook and PC times?

Thanks,

BB

Need to prep a bunch of extra lids

Time is based on jar volume not no. Of jars.
So i would stick to 15psi 90-120m

Thanks!  After doing some searching I found at least 90 min at 15psi is pretty much the standard.  I had some half pint jars I’m messing around with in the PC as well.  Will those be screwed?

Cool.  5 min and counting, lol.  My least favorite part of the process.

Since I only did 4 jars I may have over cooked my oats.  Spread them out on a screen and let them dry for at least an hour.  Think they’ll be ok?

Sweet.  I let them dry another 30 min or so after this pic.  Did the tissue test before I jarred them up to make sure they weren’t too wet. 

Also made another batch of agar with the grain soak as well.  Last time I used 20g with 400mL of GS.  Didn’t read your measurements right so this time I used 10g per 500mL media bottle.  It took me forever to liquify the agar again on the last batch.

Any input on this? I can't figure out why it wouldn't be used as a foundation for growing any mushroom in any amount.

Its a regurgitation of your knowledge used haphazardly. <3
