BRF to bulk/Cakes as spawn : Post your BRF Bulk grows * 9
    #24945782 - 01/27/18 12:33 PM (1 year, 3 months ago)

:sporedrop:USE YOUR BRF CAKES AS SPAWN!:sporedrop:

This thread is dedicated to cultivators using PF style BRF cakes as spawn in bulk substrates.

This thread is the "Tek"
The help and input from the fellow shroomery members are the keys to succeeding.
Thanks to all that have contributed.:hi:

Here are a few links to some teks and info that I have been using.
Ziran's Updated PF-Tek Guide
BOD's Bucket TEK for Coir substrate (an adaptation of the elementary coir tek by Damion5050)
Pastywhyte likes mini monos
Pastywhyte's Easy Micropore Dialed Monos
How Ziran gets down on mini mono's
Making shoeboxes

How I spawn brf to bulk is pretty simple given you have basic knowledge of what we're doing here.The amounts and containers will change,but the procedure is the same.
Here's how I like to spawn my brf to bulk,shoebox style!:awesomenod:

First I gather and prep my supplies.(boxes,cakes,tools,prepped coir,etc.)

Birth the cakes and rinse them off.(I chose to spread the 8 cakes across 3 containers)

Grate them into the container you have chosen.

Add your desired ratio of prepped coir.(I like 1:2)

(leave a little coir for a top layer if you want to add one)
Mix it up good.Level it out.
 
(Optional)Add a top layer.(I do around 1/4")Level it out.

Put the lid on and let them colonize.:super:


Some results:

APE will grow on BRF to Bulk! 
                                       
3 APE brf cakes spawned to 2qts coir/verm.
 



2nd flush.


One Ape cake spawned 1:2 in my 2.5qt "one cake" mono.



3 cakes spawned:


2nd flush:



4 Ape brf cakes spawned:

2nd flush:



Another "one cake" mini.

...more to come.

AA+

Tub 1:
This was 4 half pint brf cakes spawned to 2qt coir/verm,with a light "pseudo casing" applied at spawn.
12/27

01/07
Pins!

01/12

Wet weight was just shy of 260gm first flush.

Cd/dvd roll side project.
Spawned one brf cake to 1 pint coir/verm.Uncased.
12/27

01/23

This one took almost 2 weeks longer to fruit than the above tub in spite of being spawned on the same date.Came to about 70gm wet first flush.

Tub 2:
This tub is 3 brf cakes spawned to 2 1/4qt coir/verm,no casing.
01/15

01/27

Had to harvest this late.They outgrew the tub.Came to roughly 210gm wet.Stems were hollow on the bigger ones.

02/21 Second Flush


Twin 2.5qt mini one cake monos:

I grated 1 brf cake to 2 half pints coir/verm in each of these.One I top layer cased at spawn,the other no casing.
Spawned on 1/14.Put into fruiting on 1/21.


1/28
Pins!




2/03
Update: Harvested top layer cased tub.

First flush was just shy of the 70g wet per half pint cake spawned.


2/04
Update: Harvested un-cased tub.

First flush right at 65g wet.


Here's a single cake spawned to 2 parts coir/verm.Different container,but still hit the 70g wet per cake spawned mark. :super:



27qt Mini Mono
8 half pint cakes were grated and spawned to about 5qt coir/verm and given a very light top layer on 1/22.
2/05

2/19
Uneven pinning/flushing,but getting big mushies from it so far.


Pulled the biggest cluster.              And a couple more.

2/21
Very uneven flush,but still producing.I think my sub may have been too wet.:shrug:

Update 4/13 (pic dump)
South American.Various tubs/config


This SA was late cased.

27 qt SA 2nd flush "fairy ring"

More pics of flushes(had alot going at once)


Penis Envy will grow on brf to bulk.:awesomenod:

27qt:
  Cased 10days later.
12days after case.















PF Redspore

I spawned 3 cakes to one box and 4 to the other.Both got a top layer at spawn.

A couple more.


"Menace" grows:

2nd flush




This tub was doing awesome!:awesomenod:

Cool thread! Your harvests make my mouth water.

I am about to spawn a couple B+ cakes to CVG. They're hitting 100% today, and started pinning quite a bit. I took a pin from each to agar for later use, but want some big fruits soon.

It's good to know this can be done, since I already have experience doing G2CVG spawning.

I'll also be putting a tiny cake of B+ and GT to grain, with hopes of expanding the culture, since they are too small to make a shoebox.

In your experience has going brf to bulk been worth it when it comes to yield? Also what kind of success rate are you having spawning to bulk as opposed to just fruiting the cake as is? Might have to give this a shot.

I did the BRF cakes to CVG shoebox on 1/28, and as of today 1/3 it is almost fully colonized. I used a cheese grater to spawn the cake, and mixed it in with the CVG, then added a top layer of CVG. This seems to be going much faster than my rye to CVG boxes, as it is almost as advanced as the boxes I started on 1/20.

Looking forward to the results from this, as it is the only shoebox that has a variety other than great white monster so far. :lol:

The BRF cakes had MS B+ agar dropped on them. I have a tiny cake of this one fruiting right now, and it's got a cool cluster for the size of the cake!

I'll post some pics as the pinset develops in BRF to bulk box!

Thanks!:biggrin:
Both tubs are AA+.The tub on the right did not get a casing.The left tub got a very light top layer of coir/verm at spawning.

Brf to bulk has definately been worth it in my experience.But any pf cake attempt I've tried just never worked out for me.
By bulking up my cakes I always get nice mushrooms.As far as yield,my first flush usually averages about 70gm wet per half pint cake.Also,My contam rate is pretty non-existant with the coir/verm substrate.

:cookiemonster:This

My average is also around 70g wet per spawned cake, but fruited as cakes inside a SGFC and my yield is cut in half if not more. Also I have never seen any type of mold or visible contams in my BRF bulk substrates. They usually go 2 or more flushes and get spent before anything starts to look or smell off.
