ive heard people complain about using WBS. But i have to say. being a new at this i found it extreamly easy to use. Soak before simmering worked fine. Just simmer without soak worked fine. Where can you go wrong?? I mean if you follow the directions lol.

Ive just patched 3 pints to straw in a huge tub... its been 4 days and its almost 100% colonized and lamost ready to case.

I put my first 1 quart colonized wbs in the fruiting chamber after dunking it. its the fluffiest whitest cake ive EVER seeen. Even in the pics at this site. And now its begun pinning i have the HUGEST cluster of pins ever on this thing. I cant stress how happy i am with WBS. Bye Bye BRF tek. WBS all the way. MAybe ill try rye next time as i hear its good also.

Give me untill tomorrow and ill post a pic of the cake i have fruiting.

The tek I read involved a lot of resoaking and fishing out floating seeds. Not sure how needed it is, but it does make it seem like a bit of work. Either way I'm sure its worth it.

You're not like the others. You like the same things I do. Wax paper, boiled football leather... dog breath. We're not hitch-hiking anymore, we're riding!

If you check out the ingredients under most birdseed products avoiding those with sunflower seeds is ideal. Most floaters are attributed to S.F's and they are not good for our projects anyway. I myself have only used rye berries but it seems WBS is another great avenue.

Personally the strange glances I get from the cashiers at Petco is enough. From the amount of weird stuff Ive bought there they must think I own a zoo.

Fish Tank air pumps --> For my. . . fish...
Hoses, bubble wands, bubble stones.

Bed-a-beast for about 15,000 lizards monthly --> For my...lizards...

And 500Ilbs of birdseed --> For the hundreds of flocks of birds that decided not to migrate and stay in the freezing north all year...

Great. Glad to hear your doing well Alisia. Best of luck.

thats doc's tek its what i use it works perfectly except i only use a tyvek filter and aluminum foil but colonization times are incredible and i havent had a single contamn on these jars


if you like WBS and have an extra jar try G2G is expandsthe mycelium so fast i found it best for making casings you get multiple jars of the same mycelium that mold perfectly together
