Puffed Millet Experiment Underway
    #310159 - 05/05/01 09:59 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

After having some trouble with birdseed my last go round...i decided to experiment a little to see what works and what doesn't. I don't really care if these work out well or not, since im still waiting for my 22qt p-cooker to arrive, to replace my old 6 quart, which doesn't seem to fit any quart jars.

Anyway:
Jar #1: Wild Birdseed, no sunflowers, 2/3 cup to 1/3 cup grain to water ratio.

Jar #2: Same

Jar #3: Whole millet and vermiculite 2:1 ratio....water content adjusted with the squeeze test.

Jar #4: I forget what i put in this jar, prolly same as one of the above.

Jar #5: Puffed Millet and vermiculite. I have a hunch that the puffed millet will take exceptionally well to mycelial growth.

by the way, puff millet is commonly available at natural food stores as a cereal grain.

I'll keep yall updated.

Oh yeah, these are pint jars with polyfill lids, and silicon seals for inoculation. They will be in my incubator, which is a styrocooler with a alien submersible fishtank heater.

Good news:), my friend has tried puffed millet and it went very successful. She put a cup in a pint jar of dry puffed millet and 1/2 cup of vermiculite and 1/3 cup water. she pressure cooked it for 45 minutes @15 psi and then after cooling innoculated it with agar. It gave pretty good results. Rather quick colonization.

Its two in the morning......Do you know where your paperbag and flashlight are?
