Blu honey straw tek
Items you will need:
Spore syringe
12 pint canning jars (wide mouth)
Pressure cooker
Wheat straw
Whole brown rice
Vermiculite
Perlite
Styrofoam cooler w/ lid
3mil plastic covering
1 fork
lighter
rubber gloves
Lysol
Dust mask
25 gallon Rubbermaid container (clear) w/ lid
thermometer
humidity gauge
light source
4 shoebox sized dark colored container?s
Fishnet laundry bag


Start:
Through out the whole process the area needs to be clean and free from moving air.
Substrate Preparation:
In a large sauce pan, cook completely 4 servings of whole brown rice as per directions. While it is hot, mix in 2 cups of vermiculite real good . Next fill your jars half way up with this mixture. Put the lids on with the rubber side up. Do not tighten them, keep them on very loosely.
Place the jars in your pressure cooker and fill as per directions with water. Pressure cook them at 15 PSI for 45 minutes. Then take the pressure cooker to a VERY clean place. The bathroom works well, just make sure and clean it very good and spray a lot of Lysol in there before taking the cooker in. Let the cooker cool overnight. When you enter the room the next morning wear a hat, dust mask, and rubber gloves, also spray yourself very good with Lysol. Bring with you your spore syringe. Take the syringe and heat the needle until it is glowing red. While its cooling off. Bring in your Styrofoam container and spray it very well with Lysol, then place next to you.
One by one, take the jars out and in one quick motion barely lift the lid just enough to squirt 1 cc in the jar. Quickly close the lid and tighten. Now shake the jars a lot to disperse the spores. Loosen the lid and place in the Styrofoam cooler. Repeat the process for all the jars, make sure to heat the needle in-between jars. Put the lid on the cooler and put it in a warm dark place. After about a week check the jars for growth and also for contaminants. If you find any contaminated jars throw them out immediately.
After the jars become fully colonized leave them alone for another 4 days. Then move to the bulk growing phase.
Wheat Straw preparation:
Get about 4 big hand fulls of wheat straw and put it in a BIG bowl. Take a pair of scissors and chop it up into about two to three inch pieces. (this takes some time but its worth it) Fill your laundry bag with the straw and tie the top. Place the bag in a VERY LARGE pot. Fill with water until the bag is covered. Place a weight of some sorts on the bag to hold it under or else it will float. Heat your water until it almost boils, and keep it here for 1 hour. This is known as pasteurization and gets the germs out, but keeps the protective contaminant barrier coating on the straw. Once cooked, take the bag out and place it in the sink to both cool and drain.
Now get your shoebox growing containers and clean them very good with Lysol and let them dry. Take the containers and pour a thin layer of plain dry vermiculite on the bottom. Next place a thin layer of wheat straw on top of the vermiculite. Now take your fully colonized jars and take the lids off. Take out a fully colonized cake and break pieces up about the size of a quarter and drop them around on top of the straw. Next place a thin layer of straw on top the cake pieces. Then more cake pieces on top of that. Keep repeating these steps until your ?sandwich layered? substrate has been created in all containers. The top layer should be nothing but wheat straw.
Place a small sheet of the 3mil plastic in each container covering the straw. Press down with a lot of weight to squeeze the layers together. With a fork, heat it with a lighter and melt holes all around on the plastic so the mycelia can breathe. Now place these containers back in the dark for about a week to 2 weeks. Keep the temperatures at around 86 degrees.
Fruiting Preparation:
After mycelia has almost covered the top layer of wheat straw, move on to the fruiting stage. Take the plastic covering off all the trays and dis-guard.
Take your 25 gallon Rubbermaid container and wash very good with Lysol and let dry. Then fill with about four inches of wet perlite( take a bag of perlite and fill with one bottle of H20 and water then drain). Now place your containers with straw and mycelia on top of the perlite. Place a thermometer and humidity gauge inside. Now put the top on and place near a light source. The temperature should be in the 70?s for fruiting, but mushrooms are pretty flexible, so a range of 70-90 should be fine. The humidity should stay around 80-90 %. In about 1 or 2 weeks you should see pins starting to form. Now start fanning the Rubbermaid container with its own lid about 4 times a day. If you notice all the humidity is drying off the sides, then lower your fanning some, to 1or 2 a day. After the mushrooms break their veil you can pick them. Make sure to pick all of the aborts as well( small discolored pins that stopped growing).
There you have it, now go have some fun with growing.

> Heat your water until it almost boils
Heating it so hot gave me massive contamination problems, the substrate gets overpasteurised.
Narmally pasteurisation is achieved at a temperature of 75?C(167?F).
