What not to do......
    #3127539 - 09/13/04 12:17 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey!
When spawning straw do not use BRF cakes....my farmer friend has tried to do this, and the crushed cakes do not get spread around the bag well.  Growth still seems normal, but is patchy and thick in parts and completely uncolonized in others.  I'm sure if you used grain the colonization period would be much shorter.  Learn from his mistake, use grains with straw :smile:  Also, the increased incubation period has him a little worried about increased contam risks....

My friend the cat has spawned straw with BRF cakes successfully numerous times. The trick is to grind those cakes up with a cheese grater so you get many small particles. But WBS or other grains are much less work.

Really? I used PF cakes for my first time with straw and it worked great, I grated them like pussycat. It did take a while to get the spawn evenly distributed but it worked fine when it did.

Ya, so far all is going well, no complaints as far as success, but it seems like it would be a lot less work to use grains, just my opinion. I'll post the farmers pics when they are complete, just might take a little longer!
