Has anyone tried sorghum as grain spawn?
    #2839915 - 06/29/04 03:06 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I have reasently purchased some grain spawn that is sorghum.
I am just considering whether sorghum is possibly a better alternative than millet?
Understanding I can`t find rye so cancel it totally.

The spawn is Oyster spawn but I assume sorghum will work for all grain eaters?

Any comments on Sorghum?

I haven't used it but have heard of others using it, not from this site though. I wish I had some experience for you.

Sorghum is a component in many bird seed mixes and they work quite well. I have never tried it out side of bird seed mixes. It is listed in Stamets books as suitable.

I will run a few jars and a bag or 2 of sorghum to see how it rates against millet.
Will keep all of you up-to-date.

I know this post is super old but I thought I`d just come back to post for Joshua's sake.

Bro I have been using sorgum very successfully for a few years now with oysters and cubes.
It`s a very good grain and I find is very similar to rye.
So which ever is easier to obtain should be used.
For me sorgum is very easy to get.
