Getting B+ Strain mycellium, should i spawn some straw or stick to the caseings?
    #3715233 - 02/01/05 09:00 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

First off, I am a greenhorn when it comes to growing fungus i have used the great resources here on shroomery and have decided to buy some mycellium, i live in can. so i am able to buy it(not cheap though 150). My question is how significant will the total yeild be if i spawn some straw as a bulk substrate,compared to just caseing the mycellium?

forget buying mycelium. save yourself some money and make it yourself, it'll only put you back a couple weeks of waiting. try straw for sure. if you haven't grown mush yet do PF tek unless you really want to try straw.

Have you done casings before?  You can expect quite a considerable haul from a straw project over casings, but I can't really spit out a number because there are too many variables and it's all relative, of course.

Straw is slightly more susceptible to contam than regular casings, but in my opinion if you got sterility with casings down, then straw will be a no brainer for you. 

Start from the beginning though if you haven't done anything yet-much more interesting and fun :thumbup:

I would make it except that a pressure cooker in my neck of the woods will probably run me like 150, so it is easyer just to buy mycellium and skip the hassle.

yo, you want to use grains then right? you have no walmart or something? i got my 6 quart pc...fits 4 pint jars for $25 USD. if you are using BRF you only need a pot to boil the jars sterile...but i'm assuming you already knew that??
