Casing Layer Question
    #2779098 - 06/09/04 09:42 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all,
I've got 6 half pint PF jars that are colonizing right now. They should be done in a week or so. I was just wondering how thick of a casing layer would you guys recommend. I've got a 4 year old bag of 10lb Dung Bros compost that I'm going to attempt to use.(still smells and looks good) We'll see if it works out. I used the 4 year old spore syringes that came with it too. Suprisingly, the 6 B+ jars already show growth after 3 days. I have some Equadors too, but the spores might just not have been active anymore, because there's nothing after 4 days. Anyway, some tips on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. Also, anyone have the original DB Kit instructions?? Just so you'll know, I did already do a search on this.
THANKS!

the 6 months-1year is a pretty conservative estimate about the life of a syringe... I had some that were given to a friend that were 2.5 years and stored in a shed out side in 95-100 degree temp through 2 summers... none had a problem except for one that showed signs of contamination...

Yeah, I know. That's old as hell, but I thought that I'd give it a shot anyway. I didn't even have them in the fridge. It suprised the hell out of me. Originally, I thought that they were only 2 years old, but then I sobered up and realized that more time had passed than I thought. I bought the DB kit when they first came out and changed living conditions and never used them. I just thought that I'd give it a try. The B+ jars seem to be doing well, wish I could say the same for the Eq.. Hopefully, all can pull through with out contams.

Well, I just looked at the EQ jars and there's growth now! :blush: There's not as much as the B+ jars, but it's at least something. Still pretty amazing since they're around 4 years old. The B+ mycellium growth has really taken off since yesterday. I'll try to post some pics in the grow log soon.

Anyone think that Ryche Hawk would have the original Dung Bros instructions???

Expect the EQ to out grow the B+. B+ has a habbit of stalling. 


  Yeah, last time I grew B+ they stalled, but that was in a pint jar. The other times that I grew them in half pints, they did fine. I have not grown the Eq's before, but I've read that they are very fast at colonizing and growing. I guess we'll see. It's kind of weird because I innoculated the Eq's 2 days before I did the B+ jars. But the syringes being 4 years old might have made some strange things happen. So, far the B+ is way ahead, showing growth after only 2 days.

I have a question though, should I spawn the jars into a couple 1 gallon oven bags with the DB compost, and then case when it's colonized?? It's been so fucking long since I've done any of this and there seem to be so many new methods. Thanks. :sun:
