Crumbled Cakes as Opposed to Grain Spawn
    #2533207 - 04/06/04 11:27 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Could one substitute an equal amount (in volume) of crumbeled BRF cakes in a tek that calls for grain spawn?

There is a tek Im looking at that requires about a gallon or two of grain spawn per batch. Considering that there is eight pints in a gallon, that would mean 16 half-pint jars would roughly equal the volume of the grain that is needed. If you add a few extra jars to be sure, say a total of twenty five, and crumble them all, could you use the resulting colonized media in replacement for grain spawn?

The method involves worm compost and wheat straw if that helps.

THanks for your time

That would work just fine...thats a bunch of half pinters so you want to do WBS or corn in full pinters or Qt jars next time...a lot easier

yes you can absolutly use pf cakes for spawn.the cheesegrator method is probably the best for it though,at least i would think so.But you can do it for sure.

yes then its many small pieces of myceluim so it colonizes much faster than crumbled chunks.

It works very well, and since a fully colonized cake seems to be harder to contam then fully colonized grain (my opinion only) that is one thing going for it.
