Krombopulos Mycs Mycology Methods



                                                      SPAWN TEK



WBS with 3 to 5 percent powderded gypsum added in during the first (soak) cycle,

weak coffee added in durng the first soak (i add 1 cup per 6 cups of wbs)

spent coffee grounds (one tablespoon per jar, added during the final rinse)

it is important to use wak coffee and spent grounds, i fill a 3 gal pot with 5 cups dry fresh grounds then i boil and replace the water 4 times.
i use the coffee from the third cook to hydrate the wbs during the first soak and i use the grounds left after the fourth boil to add during the final rinse.

there are a few key steps in ensuring the grounds arent too acidic, as this can be harmfull to mycelium (bad)
i let the grounds airdry on a large sheet of tyvek, the grounds are then rehydrated during the final rinse (of the wbs)





                                                      K-MYCS WBS TEK



seen alot of wbs tek on here and i have combined key steps of trusted teks to make this no fail wbs tek

                                  what you will need

1pint mason jars with lids (wide mouth)

SFD (i use tyvek envelopes, free from post office)

duct tape (good shit not cheap stuff)

silicone

screwdriver (to punch holes)

hammer (to hit screwdriver)

exacto knife( to cut tyvek)

aluminum foil

PC (pressure cooker)

synthetic fiber window screen

SAB (still air box, recomended)

WBS (wild bird seed)

gypsum ( sheetrock dust)

coffee (spent grounds and weak liquid)

5gal bucket with lid

                                    step 1, wbs prep

first thing you want to do is figure out how much wbs you need ( i use 8 cups to fill 4 pint jars)

pour wbs into 5gal bucket, fill with water and rinse and pour atleast 8 times untill the wbs is free of debris and the water runs clear

add 1/4 cup gypsum

add spent coffee grounds (1 tablespoon per jar)

add 1 cup weak coffee

add twice as much water as seed and cover

allow to sit for 18 hours

remove excess water

add the same amout of boiling water

close lid and shake once(lid will swell but wont pop)

let sit 90 minutes

pour wbs over screen and rinse with fresh water

spread with gloved hand and let airdry untill dry to the touch (nomore than 1 hour)

                                  step 2 jar prep

first use your screwdriver to punch two holes in each lid, one across from the other about an inch away from the edge of the lid


place a bead of silicone on one hole on both side (top and bottom) of lid, this forms a self healing membrane for inoculation :wink:

allow silicone to dry 24 hours

trace out the lid on your tyvek and use your exacto knife to cut out a disk, cut the disk in half

cover the other hole with your SFD ( sythetic filter disk made from tyvek envelope)

seal open end with duct tape strip (it will melt during PC but will hold)

some teks call for the lid to be placed seal up, some call for seal down. ive used both and had the same results always.
i go seal down and sfd over top of lid


                                    step 3, fill jars and PC

now that your jars are ready and your spawn is ready its time to fill, PC, and inoculate


i add 1 1/4 cups hydrated wbs to each pint jar

clean inside of jar that the wbs is not touching

put lid on and tighten down

place foil disk over lid to keep excess moisture out

put jars in pc and cook for 90 minutes at 15 psi

once time is done and pressure is gone remove jars and shake(to distribute moisture and break up clumps.

let cool at room temp for 8 hours

                                    step 4, inoculate...


will post an inoculation tek seperatly. look for it under "K-mycs tek"


                                       




                                               

                                                  FUN FACTs


gypsum adds calcium which feeds mycelium and sulfer which breaks down the starches that cause the seeds to clump together (seed clumps resist mycelium growth).
coffee adds nitrates which adds nitrogen, food for mycelium. the grounds themselfs also retain moisture and make a good sub.(mycelium will grow on 100% coffee substrate)




                                                  TERMINOLOGY


field capacity: amount of water held by sub after excess has drained away and downward flow decreases.

FC; grab a handful of sub and squeeze it, if water drips out its too wet, the water should bead up at your fingers but not trickle or drip down
this is proper field capacity

biological effeciency: productivity of substrate

BE=lbs of fresh weight of mushrooms/lbs of dry sub at spawn time



                                                  SUB PASTURIZATION

for mycological purposes we pasturize sub.

get sub to FC (field capacity)

needs to be heated to a core temp of 160 degrees and held for 60 minutes

allow sub to cool naturally
