PF cakes with Straw
    #2577956 - 04/19/04 03:10 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ive recently had alot of luck with a new recipe for cakes.It may not be new,but ive never read about it so it was new to me.
First i took some straw and chopped it into very tiny pieces(less than 1/2")then i soaked it overnight in water.The next day I strained it and let it drain well.In the meantime i muxed up 1 cup of verm-1/2 cup of BRF-1/2 cup water.I then mixed this all up well then added the straw,mixing well.I loaded into quart jars about 2/3rds up, with tyvek lids and PC just like normal PF jars.
When they were cool I innoculated with some Acadian Liquad Myc and Holy crap,they are growing at an amazing speed.
3 of the quart jars are almost fully colonized at 5 days and and the rest are about 75%.The straw breaks u the pf cakes so they are shakeable which helps.
This is the first time ive tried this so i cant tell you final results yet,but from what ive seen so far its great!

Im not really sure to be honest.I didnt measure it,just eyeballed it.I would say around a cup or so,not much more.

I did.well i shook them after i innoculated with Karo water,but they are colonizing so fast that i didnt need to.I could have the straw made them so i could,but with 85% colonization in now 6 days,I didnt need to.

After all 12 are done and i decide what i am going to do with them,ill borrow a camera and post pictures.Ill also do another batch while i have the camera so i can do a step by step(not that its hard)

Sounds cool. So you did not have to boil the straw before you put them in the pf jars right?

While this is butternut's idea/thread i'll point out that he stated that he sterilised the jars ala PF tek so pasteurising the straw before loading into the mix would seem to me to be a waste of time and energy.

it seems logical to spawn into the straw. when mycelium has already adapted a taste for a substrate it tends to rip through more of the same at a blinding pace.

depending on how much material you have to work with it would seem wise to try several approaches to see which works best for you.

nope i did it just like i said,no other steps.

And debianlinux I am going to do 3 jars into straw,3 jars into straw/worm castings and,3 jars coir/verm casing and im gonna let 3 jars grow invitro.
I am not really concerned with yeild,although i dont mind it either.I am mostly just trying a little of everything as an experiment.

in general, using karo water will speed up colonization.

.Ive done Karo many times,but for QUARTS to colonize almost fully in 5 days is CRAZY FAST! Im not talking 1/2 pints here.
I have 3 Quarts now that were done in 7 days and I am letting grow invitro.

What is Acadian Liquad Myc?

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? I say it is both.

Acadian is a "strain" of cubensis hailing from the Acadian Coast aka Louisiana.

Liquid Myc is a liquid mycelium culture.
