Re: Dung Brothers Kit questions....(Attention Ryche) [Re: tom]

I just noticed something. That flush I posted above yielded 550 wet grams and just over 2 oz dry. That was with about three and a half pounds homemade compost, half the cropping surface, and only one quart birdseed spawn. And to boot, it got hit with mad Cecid fly larvae. I'm also in the process of expecting a big second flush which looks far healthier and bigger than the first as all the larvae actually jumped out of the container and died (maybe they couldn't take tripping any more?).

That seems over twice the efficiency of Ryche's compost, not that his yields are bad by any means, but it just seems that with me making such crude compost and the dung brothers compost with all its experience and time spent formulating exact parameters, it doesn't pan out with what I'm seeing. I mean nothing derogitory by this but it proves that homemade compost can be pretty damn wonderful, even without the glamour of secret ingredients and everything else.

Of course, I actually had to do something...

Soup what kind of growing enviroment was it in? Was it grown in The Mushroom Cultivator? With Ryches kit he says no fanning is needed. I would think that if you took Ryches dung and threw it into a similar environment it would turn out just as good. Maybe if you feel like it you could test out the DB just to see if you get the same or better yeilds. I would understand if you don't have the cash or just don't care enough to invest money into some DB. I am gonna post your picture here at the bottom of my thread so everyone can see. I have resized it so that it doesn't make the thread super wide. Below is Soup's picture. You can click on it to make it full size teehee.

My .02 is I'm sure "hawks compost" is very good mushroom compost, but there are many people in this country/world with far more recources than Ryche or anyone he knows working with compost. Like multi million dollar Mushroom factories, and Paul Stamets, etc. I have a major mushroom factory close to me, produces many different varietys of gourmet's, they use straw and horse dung, and maybe cottonseed meal/chicken manure to up nitrogen, but I'm sure of the straw/ horse dung.

And from what I know and have read making compost is pretty simple, there is nothing high tech about it, you just even out the nitrogen/carbon ratios, end up with about 1.5-1.6% Nitrogen, and have about 70% moisture content. Using the wood shavings/cow manure to improve the consistency to allow it so fruit well in a crappy plastic tub with no extra humidification seems to be one of the major breakthroughs here. Because Everything I've read says Cow manure sucks compared to any other manure, but maybe using more of it and leaving out the straw is the secret.

How many of you have used properly made compost and not had good results? When I say properly made I mean using Stamets or other authority's methods. I'm about too once it warms up.

I know where he's getting the compost from, well actually that may be where the checks are going to and he's just getting a cut since, it's a company in WA. I dug it up in a 1 yr old forum. Of course it's not called Fungal Fever or dung brothers.
