Inoculating BRF cakes with spore syringe/LC/agar?
    #24700494 - 10/10/17 09:42 PM (3 years, 6 months ago)

Hi guys, i have no experience at all about growing mushrooms but i have been gathering information the past few days.

Im looking at a BRF tek, with the SGFC.
From what i understand there are 3 options to inoculate the sterilized jars?

1#Using a spore syringe (distilled water and spores) into the BRF jar.
2#Using a spore syringe and mixing it with LC, then letting it sit for 1-2 week until white fluffy stuff builds and inoculating a sterilized jar, wait another 1week and see if it gets contaminated. If not i can procede to use the LC to inoculate other sterilized jars.
3#Using pastywhytes Agar tek and then adding the finished agar with no contamination to the sterilized jars.

Can someone tell me if this is correct what i listed above? I find the agar method to be quite complicated and it seems like most people say LC is bad because you cant tell if its contaminated or not until you use it, but what if you work really careful and buy LC from a store? is the risk of contamination still that high?

Yea that more or less is the 3 methods for initial inoculation.  I would say to go with the spore syringe into BRF jar for your first attempt at growing mushrooms.  Is much simpler and more newbie friendly!  :goodluck:

Does the solution, distilled water/spores matter?
Say, i use 10CC of distilled water and like 1/5 of the spore print and fill the BRF jars with 0,5CC content each. Is it the same as if i used 5CC  distilled water and 1/5 of the spore print and filled the containers with 0,5CC?
Im guessing the latter is more "potent" since its less water?
Are there any guidelines thats say how much distilled water to use or do you just go by feeling?

I would suggest getting a pack of 12 jars and innoculating 10 or so with spore solution (you'll have to use it sparingly to make 12) and then knock up 2 liquid cultures using the honey and potato water technique. Youll have jars and a culture or two so you can make more jars in the future.

Ill use a spore syringe to inoculate the brf jars and if everything works out great ill make spore prints of good looking caps and use them for the next cycle :mushroom2:

1/5th of a print should be fine to make a syringe
