How big of casing?
    #3657667 - 01/21/05 10:16 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

According to all the threads I've read, rye spawn is usually measured in fluid ounces (3 qts.=48 fl. oz.)
My brothers' uncle-in-law measured 2# of rye, and inoculated 2-1# casings.
Can I hear some guesses as to how big of casings to achieve the desired 1/2"
of spawn?

TIA

Your question is kinda vauge ... :confused:
Make up more casing material than you think you need , and apply to desired thickness .
I mean the size of tray matters , the depth of sub ... what the hell is 2-1# ?
My guess ... that is one big assed casing ! :tongue: :crazy:

Cased grains do just fine IMHO ! As long as enough grain is used to make a decent depth sub .
Why would you say it will not turn out good ?

mixing the rye with field capacity verm @ a 2:1 ratio is key to getting the most out of rye especially since the kernels are so big.

If you're going to go that and have to wait for colonization of the verm, why not use pastuerized compost and get even more?

Sorry I was vague, i understood what I said, lol
K, let me restate my q:
He will be starting 2 rye myco bags (each weigh 1 lb. (#)) thus meaning it's gonna end up being 2 one pound "blocks".
Does anyone have a guess as to what size container would give the desired depth of colonized rye?

Do some calculating dude! :grin:

0,5 inch of substrate is a bit small, 2 inch would be better!

Just get a nice deep rubbermaid you're sure you can make at least a 2" sub layer in, and if not you'll just have some bigger shrooms.

I'd take a rough estimate of the cubic inches of each bag and go from there.
