hey dude forget popcorn its not worth the trouble it gets contamed too easy... try Brown Rice Flour (BRF) or buy some brown rice at a store and chop it up the best u can... prefferably in a coffee grinder since caffeine boosts growth... then boil for an hour... search for a tek on boiling BRF... im not sure there is one but ive done it before and its not too hard of a task i got about 90% with no contams.

Popcorn is a perfectly good substrate, but absolutely cannot be used without a pressure cooker.

What's your source for that comment? I don't know of any evidence that caffeine boosts the growth of P. cubensis mushrooms. There is limited evidence that coffee may do so, but this should certainly not be reccomended so casualy to a n00b.

Are you referring to a BRF/vermiculite substrate? I have never heard of straight BRF being used.

But yes, without a pressure cooker your best bet is to follow the PF tek and steam sterilise for over an hour. IMO, no grain can be used reliably without a pressure cooker.
