bulk vs mass grain substrate.

so to my understanding you spawn grain to poo/ straw to increase the amount of substrate. If one happened to have rediculous amounts of colonized grain would it makes sense just to case it? Does the straw/poo add anything besides increasing tha amount of substrate?

Grain over 2 inches is a waste. I've tried it and your better off making multiple thinner casings with it. You certainly don't have to spawn, it increases the amount of substrate and size of mushrooms. It rocks but can be a pain. I only use grain normally, I've tried straw a bit though as well. I do about 36 quarts of grain at a time every week and straight case it. Lots of mushies!

straw/poo gives larger more potent fruits due to nutrition in those substrates. You can make like 6x6 casings using 1q of grain and have many of those and average .5-1oz a flush or use 1-3q of grain to spawn a 30 gall tub of straw/poo....then get a shit load per flush. Go with whats easier for u

What kind of yield do you get off of that?  :crazy2:

If everything is working correctly 2-6 ounces per day, everyday.

JEEZIBUS!
How long have you been in the shroom game?
2-6 oz per day.. are you selling these things? That is a fuckload of cash.. like $1,000 a day. Not bad, not bad. Do you have a day job?

Lethargy,

All your posts refer to selling shrooms. Selling mushrooms are illegal and why would someone do such a thing. Much less talk about it in a public forum... That's kinda frowned upon at the shroomery...

No 2-6 ounces dry. I don't generally get 6 ounce flushes..generally its about 2 but occasionally (especially if I missed making casings for a few days and get backed up) I might not get many one or two days and then a 4-6 ounce the next. If offset correctly I do like 5-6 jars a day as they colonize (no more though) and they go through their cycles one day ahead of eachother. Thats 5-6 quarts everyday harvested generally 14-30 grams per quart (depending on strain and such). All dry weight..I don't really weigh them wet..to much hassle..

If someone were to be selling them even at 6 ounce for 1000 dollars thats almost 170 dollars an ounce..thats outragous and thats assumeing 6 ounces everyday which was the high end of the spectrum I gave. Wouldn't you think people who sell shrooms in that large of a capacity (that works out to be about 1-1 1/2 lbs/week) would sell them a bit cheaper then extortionists prices?

Besides I don't sell..I just eat them all with my friends. We eat alot of mushrooms what can I say..

Oh, and on the 12th will be 4 months from when I knocked up my first jar.
