BRF vs Grains
    #3160419 - 09/21/04 04:56 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I am starting my first grow by myself and am starting with the simple verm/BRF mixture to start. I believe its the PF tek. I read in a post that someone said "you are ready for grain". I would think by saying that that using grain then would be more tricky to accomplish, however would produce more product. Is this true? Do grains as a substrate have any benifit for an experienced grower?
Thanks

Grain is more versitle than BRF... but you must have a Pressure Cooker to do grains. A medium sized PC will cost $20-50. Grain is known for growing bigger, more potent shrooms than brf.

Grain (If you have a pressure cooker) is at least as easy as the pf tek.

Grain is cheaper. $6.50 for a 50 pound bag of cracked corn. Grain teks sometimes have more contam issues than the pf tek. With the right equipment, pc/glovebox/flowhood, grain would be the way to go.

i dont want to break the rules or something just to tell you that both times i did grains i just boiled (no PC) and both times were successful. Maybe i was just too lucky though
