Bulk Straw Q
    #3707961 - 01/31/05 04:45 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

recently a foaf decided to try his luck with straw, he decided to make a 12x12 inch casing before going into a large bulk.

his small casing finished it's first flush the other day and he sampled them to be extremly dissapointed with the potency.

the problem is my foaf assumed that there would be no problem so he spawned the large bulk straw in a 95L rubbermade and it is currently about 80% colonized and contam free.

now his question is, is there anything other than dung or compost that can be added to straw to increase the potency at this point. also the small casing was spawned with a ground up PF cake to approx 1.5 quarts of straw, the big one was 4 quarts of rye to a full 5 lb bail of straw. could the PF cake have caused the potency problem, will the grain spawn produce more potent shrooms. my foaf's foot paid dearly while pasturizing this straw and he doesn't want to get a massive flush of crap. any help would be appricated

come on guys, is the pen really such an asshole that no one will reply

also, could i place a layer of pasturized dung over the colonized starw annd allow that to colonize before casing, or is that a waste of time

Rye is much much more nutritious than pf cakes or straw. I have never found grain or grain spawned substrate to be lacking. I have found pf cakes to be quite lacking. My guess is that potency will be better this time around from the rye.

but the ratio is about 12:1 straw:grain

so would this even be enough rye for the nutes to make a difference

could i up the potency by dumping 2 quarts of colonized wbs on top of the straw before casing???

this seems to be my best option right now
