mycelia isnt the only thing that likes sugar its easily used by lots of nasties i wouldnt suggest it m8. It wouldnt do any harm if it didnt contam but i dont think the risk would be worth it.

I was thinking the same thing, but was planning on trying pure pharm. grade caffeine... but lost interest. What was the final outcome on the coffee project? Was it the caffeine?

actually... bacteria and mold dont like pure sugar... ever leave out chocolate or hunny or anythin? never ever grows mold its too much sugar for them.... maybe if its diluted into the substrate it might be good for em tho i dunno im gunna try it out next time i make some cakes tho

also, im kinda impatient when it comes to gettin my shrooms... is there any substrate that i can use (without verm of course) to just colonize and eat as a cake for an intense trip??? of course this is for when im desperate and dont have any creatures to harvest at the time.... still are there any tasty substrates i could try to do? bird seed and flour by themselves would be kinda nasty.

honey never spoils because of the natural anti-biotic in it. Not the sugar. And choclate has so many preservatives and toxic chemicals that even the ants stay away.

There was an experiment conducted on 16 jars. 8 of them using the regular PF tek and 8 of them using the PF-Birdseed Tek. The ones using the PF-Birdseed tek produced much larger, and more potent mushrooms. Not to mention, they colonized almost twice as fast as the ones using regular pf tek. They were all cased with the same substrate (scotts 3 in 1 compost), and grown under the same conditions to make sure the only difference was the birdseed. Heres how it was done:

Follow the regular PF Tek. The only difference is one part Penningtons Wild Bird Feed (you can use other bird feeds that contain lots of white millet) was added in the mix. The bird seed had Bird-Kote on it so it was soaked in warm water for about 10 mins and then rinsed off. It was then added into the Brown Rice Flour/Vermiculite Mix and the water content was adjusted accordingly. Once the water content was right (if you take a handful and squeeze it a few drops will fall) it was then placed in jars according to the regular PF tek and topped off with a 1/4" layer of dry vermiculite (to help keep out airborne contams that come through the innoculation points). The jars were then pressure cooked for 1 hour and then sat in the Pressure cooker overnight to cool. Once cool, they were innoculated as usual.

Like I said. The jars that used the PF-Birdseed Tek performed much better, and produced much larger/potent mushrooms than the ones using the regular PF-Tek.
Sorry if this has already been done/posted on here. I just thought it would be a good way for beginners to experiment with grains without straying away from the PF Tek too much.

Sure. Make a big batch of karo syrup, be really sure of your sterile technique, and just eat the myc when you have enough.
