Oyster on instant white rice.
    #3270239 - 10/24/04 03:48 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

(This was adapted from Growing mushrooms the easy way book 2, my changes were using intant white rice instead of instant brown rice and adding corn syrup as well as a few other minor changes)

First I traced around the lid of the jar I was going to use on a cerial box then cut the circle out and put it aside for later. I then took the jar and lid and boiled it in a pot and left it simmering.
Next I took a cup of instant white rice and put it in a medium sized bowl and added a gram of gypsum. Next I took 125mls of hot water from the tap and added 13mls of hydrogen peroxide as well as a table spoon of corn syrup to the hot water and stirred it up with a spoon. Then I dumped the liquid into the bowl with the instant rice and stirred it until the liquid was completely absorbed. I then took the jar and lid that I had left boiling out of the pot and spooned the rice into the jar and fitted the cardboard circle into the jar's lid. I screwed the jar lid on loosely then I loaded the rice jar into a steamer pot (with a heat disperser in the bottom) and steamed the jar for exactly 10 minutes, then immediately took the jar out and set it aside to cool.
After the jar had cooled to room temperature I took the lid off the jar and soaked the cardboard insert in hydrogen peroxide (shook off the excess), inoculated the jar with peroxide treated culture and screwed the lid back on as tight as I could get it. Growth was slow at first (I was storing the jar with some lion's mane petri dishes at around 70-75), but it took off like a rocket when I raised the temperature to 78-82. Total time was around 3 weeks, but in the last 5 days I had raised the temperature to
78-82 and mycelium SEEMED to have doubled in total mass.

I have no pics, but I have started over again with 2 more white rice oyster jars and I am going to do a couple white rice Lion's Mane jars.
This time I will borrow a camera.

"update"
As of 2 days ago both jars are fully colonized
which means it took 15 days to colonize.
