Mixing grains for spawn
    #3729233 - 02/04/05 09:04 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Would there be any problem mixing WBS and rye in a single jar to be used as spawn? My rye jars have colonized a lot quicker than WBS in the past...i'm figuring this is because there are more air pockets maybe?
Problem is, I don't have much rye left and can't get anymore for a while. Should mixing up 50/50 WBS and rye work just fine?

Another sort of related question...
Say i have 4 colonized grain jars that were inoculated with two different karo cultures. If I'm going to make a couple casings, would mixing two jars created from different cultures decrease the myc's performance in comparison to combining jars of the same culture?

Sorry if my wording is confusing...I'm going to try and pick up a copy of TMC right now...that should help straighten out the terminology :grin:

there is no problem with mixing them before sterilization, you may want to soak them seperately though.

Custom mixed grains is a smart choice IMHO , the many varying sizes of differnet grains creates a wider range and sizes of inoc points . It also allows one to select grains based on the differnt nutrtional values of each grain , and nutes that are released and usable at differnet stages of development .50\50 60\40 WHATEVER will be just fine , the myc is gonna eat it up no matter what ... well as long as all goes well and no nasties get in during the prep.

For scientific purposes ... I think you should keep each strain seperate and inoc seperate trays with each , but we are not talikng about issolated strains done on agar, so do whatever stikes your fancy .

Thanks a lot guys

I'm kind of at the point where I know what will work for me but I always want to know why. Which Stamets book would be more helpful for understanding what the hell mycelium is thinking? GGMM or TMC?
