Coffee Tek?
    #3290249 - 10/28/04 06:14 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I read something earlier about using coffee water to moisten your jars. Could you just use coffee beans as an alternative to popcorn or BRF?

O.K. Just thought I'd ask. It sounded like it might work because of the coffee water thing. What does the coffee water do anyway, act as some sort of stimulant for the myc?

I don't think anyone ever really answered this question and I haven't heard of anyone using decaf to see if it's just the caffine. I just did my first couple of jars PF Tek stye. I used a weak coffee mixture instead of plain water in two of my jars and they are colonizing about a third faster then the other jars. I drink my coffee pretty strong so I added about a shot's worth of coffee to one cup of water.

So why does it work so much better, does anyone know? Or is it just one of those loving tips passed around?

Basically from all those pages of reading in the coffee tek forum it said straight beans don't work, i don't know why. It seemed like the best thing to do is what ymhrswrider said. Some people dunk theirs in a coffee mixture and got good results and the rest got contams, so that seems kinda risky.

Just to clarify, i didn't mean that they contamed more if they were simmered or soaked in coffee then pressure cooked, but if they were dunked in coffee after being fully colonized.

the coffee beans wont hold enough water... I tried it with beans and grounds
a while back... neither did well, I also used a 50/50 mix of coffee grounds and
WBS and had full colonization but there were no fruits.

Roger Rabbit beats me by 20 minutes every time... he's done some very impressive
work in the hobby, search his name in this forum and the advanced cult forum
and you'll find lots of interesting things.... the hemp twine, marijuana, the bible and a bra...
the man seems to have more time on his hands than I do.
