Bod's easy AF cheapest way to get started by yourself no need for a pressure cooker * 80
    #24981864 - 02/10/18 02:04 PM (1 year, 5 months ago)

This tek is part of bod's cultivation is easy as fuck link list


Bod's Easy AF cheapest way to get started TEK
The cheapest way to do cakes without a pressure cooker
The cheapest way to to bulk without a pressure cooker
Low maintenance




Without a pressure cooker using a pot with a nice fitting lid that you already own
You will need


$10-15 - 12 pack of half pint jars (preferably wide mouth but these are harder to find)
$2-5 - Some BRF(brown rice flour) you can grind your own whole brown rice.
$5-10 - Some vermiculite
$0 - tap water
$10-15 - spore syringe
$1-2 - storage baggies sandwich or quart size.

$28-47 dollars to get started and grow around 2-4oz dried grams of shrooms very easily.
$10 more if you don't own a pot with a lid. Get one at an Asian grocery store or wallmart.

***
Don't forget there will be some leftovers that save you money off subsequent grows.
you will re-use the jars, have enough verm to do a few more grows, BRF is cheap, you'll have extra baggies.
Subsequent grows can be done for a few dollars
***

Prepare the jars like you would following the PF tek, which is located in the sticky posts at the top of the forum or in the following links.
https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/24179086
https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/15223324
http://www.mushroomvideos.com/BRF-Pf-Tek

when it comes time to fruiting skip the SGFC and do this.
If using half pint cakes like the PF tek then birth them, wash the dry verm barrier off, put the cake back in the jar and put some new verm on the top.

If using a bigger jar you wont need to birth the cake at all because there's no dry verm barrier. Just add some verm to the top and moisten it



you can put them on a shelf somewhere they receive good lighting through the day.

mist them as needed to keep the surface moist. likely once a day to once every other day. Doesn't require any babysitting at all.

You can use bigger jars but keep the BRF cake to about a half pint in size. Using larger pucks of BRF cake will stall out when inoculated with a spore syringe, you want to keep the cake to about half pint in size and wide and flat rather than tall and skinny if possible. If you use a bigger jar than the half pint jar skip the dry verm barrier and use a "Grain jar lid"(gas exchange filter and optional injection port) to inoculate and colonize. Do not shake.

CONS are the jars are in use for the fruiting period and harvesting can be a pain in the ass.

you can use some coir or verm or both together as a top layer or casing to help create a better micro-climate.

To do bulk without a pressure cooker

Make the cakes as above, then when they are finished colonizing birth them (before the consolidation period as they do not need consolidation used as spawn)
Shred the cakes by hand or with a cheese grater. using your shredded cake spawn mix with bucket TEK coir (next two links)

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11916595#11916595

use this to make a monotub or shoebox
shoebox tubs are $1 and a brick of coir is about $3.
suggested shoebox tek

I fruit shoeboxes with grocery bags


total cost to do bulk without a pressure cooker

$31-50

don't forget there will be some leftovers that save you money off subsequent grows.

Before you start...Do you have a Pressure Cooker and a Dehydrator? I highly recommend getting both!

If you leave the cake in the jar and use a sandwich bag, do you remove the dry verm layer first? Or does that work as casing?

remove it as per the PF tek then replace it if you wish with some fresh verm or coir or both.

It's nothing new but sometimes people don't think of the obvious solutions. Especially when you've never done it before. Doesn't hurt to consolidate it to a single post since I've explained it to people more than a few times now.

If you just want enough to trip on you could find a single jar and grind some brown rice and swallow the cost of one bag of verm and get more than enough for the cost of a syringe and a bag of verm.

Yeah, the human tendency to overthink and overcomplicate things is definitely alive and well in this hobby. People waste time and money trying to save time and money

hmm.. will this have the same yield compared to, birthing- dunk n roll then placed into SGFC.... I understand this is easier but will the yield be significantly less?

In my experience my yield is higher when bulk spawning my cakes.First flush I usually average 70g wet per half pint cake spawned.

Should be very similar if not better.
Its easy to water cakes when they're in a jar.
And bulk tends to bulk things up if you go that route
