A few newbie questions before my first PF grow...
    #3647320 - 01/19/05 09:29 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm about to start my first batch of PF jars w/ BRF. My only previous experience growing is a growkit ordered online. Anyway, the spore syringes I ordered have clumps of dark (spores?) stuff floating in blobs. Should I shake the syringe to help break that up? Also, if jars were prepared in a similar way except with WBS, would they be more potent, or do they just get bigger? Thanks alot for the help.

I almost forgot the main reason I posted that question. I was following the coffee discussion, but came away unclear about this. Is using coffee only good for using as a substrate, or does misting mycelium with coffee water beneficial. Thanks

Yes shake the syringe. You have a LOT more spores then you need. If you can see clumps then that is a pretty good syringe, assuming nothing is wrong of course. My advice would be to swirl the syringe. Don't shake it too hard, just enough to dislodge the spores. Then you should be good to go.

on the issue of potency that is an issue of almost religious fervor. If there are potency differences then they are not large.

good luck.

yeah shake the  :syringe: to distribute the spores evenly, dont shake it violently, just a good mixing shake.  :mushroom2:

you shouldnt be misting mycellium directly at all, if your talking about the casing layer, i dont think coffee will do anything.  :cool:

I agree with the others, just give it a decent shaking.
Good luck with your grow!

Misting w/coffee is a BAD idea. It has nutrients that will allow contams to grow. A percentage of coffee can be used in the substrate, but I wouldnt worry with that untill you work your way up to doing whole grains.

on your WBS question, i would also like to know if WBS increases potency
anyone know?

imho, i would think WBS would increase the potency a little bit
if you use WBS i would upgrade to quart jars instead of PF 1/2 pint jars

has anyone used grains and fruited them as cakes?  just curious  :mushroom2:

The whole grains wont hold up in cake form. If you get the grain out in one piece, when you try to pick the mush it will fall apart.


Or so Im told......

definately do NOT mist with coffee.. if u wanna use coffee, soak WBS or rye with it then simmer then PC.. or u can use 50/50 coffee/water to make the BRF substrate then PC to sterilize

oh yea i forgot.. anytime u wanna use coffee make sure its diluted with water... not straight coffee!

wbs tek
is soak 12-24 hours
rinse well through a strainer...preferably metal
drain for about 20-30 mins
load jars 3/4 full
and pc then once pc has reached zero pressure and is still hot
and shake the shit outta the jars
then put them back in the pc
till they cool

and caseing wbs sucks ass from what i have seen you want to spawn it to straw witch is a million more times easier than it sounds all you have to do is boil straw in a pillow case at 170 for an hr or so then take out set on rack till cool it should be drained enough to use stays good for a few days dont know how long
