I had the same problem so i saved the site hope this helps. I havent tryed it yet but will if HAWK ever sends my my long awatedd spores.

oO0 Alien Substrate Formula 0Oo
Important Note: Do not substitute for anything in this recipe. The 2 grains (Quinoa and Brown Rice) must be whole and not ground or powdered. The formula presented will produce this awesome substrate, but if its altered it may be a disaster.
http://www.sporechicks.com/Teks/alien.html
Cook the Quinoa and Rice (use the whole grains, not ground) by bringing it to a boil with 2 cups of spring water, then turn the heat down to a simmer, cover the pot with lid and set a timer for 20 mins. Mix up the other dry ingredients while this is cooking, stir the grains occasionally so as not to burn them. When the grains are all done, turn off the heat and allow them to cool for a minute or so. Now dump them and the water that still in the pot (do not strain) all in with the dry mix previously prepared. Mix this carefully with a fork (no hands) so it remains light and fluffy. You can add another 1/8-1/4 cup of water to the final mix (not the cooking of the rice and quinoa) if you desire a slightly wetter substrate (I add a bit under a 1/4 cup to mine) which can help fruiting. (Only add this extra water after the substrate has cooled for 5 minutes or so) Cover and let it cool for about 15 minutes before spooning into jars. I use the vermiculite topping like PF and this has helped alot to eliminate contams. Don't pack the substrate when loading, try to keep it fluffy and pressure cook at 15 p.s.i. for 45 minutes. If you use the PF style jars with the holes in the lids, then cap the jars with aluminum foil. This substrate is very airy and makes any good cubensis grow very rizmorphic.
