You need it powdered to really be effective for the PF tek. It could be done with a mortar + pestle but you still wouldn't have the right consistency, and you're talking ALOT of work.

Gotta have a coffee grinder or food processor to do it right.

Yeah, grinders are like 10 bucks. Just invest a little, or you are going to be working your ass off trying to get it ground down enough. They also sell brown rice flour at health food grocers. Hope this helps and good luck. :mushroom2:

I agree....but if anyone wants to try it out to see how well it yields....then it sounds like a fun experiment to me :cheers:

Maybe it's make more nutes per sq. inch? Or am I off?...Sounds like a logical hypothesis...but that doesn't mean that it's correct :laugh:

haha I wouldn't think that it would yield any better than the rice from a grinder, but who knows? Maybe the mushroom gods will look on him with favor for his hard work. :shocked: :laugh:

I would figure some sort of hydration might need to be done to the rice in order to have it fully available to the mycelium. If not powdered it is really hard and dense (less surface area as well), this would most likely cause colonization problems an minimize the ability to utilize all the nutrients.

I can see it working with a bit of adjustment. You can grow cubes on pretty much anything organic. Getting them to grow well takes careful preperation of substrate, and good old TLC...
