WBS and no simmer for fruiting? Slap yourself!
    #3732051 - 02/04/05 09:06 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

You know, I owe it to scatman that I got off my lazy ass to simmer my WBS after my usual soak, before my usual PC.

Shit, if you are (like the previous me) one of those people that does WBS for fruiting (not G2G), get off your lazy ass and start simmering the stuff. Sorry I don't have picks to prove it but damn. I will never waste my time fruiting a batch of WBS WITHOUT simmering again.

:drumming:

Personally I find soaking easier to deal with.
But there is nothing wrong with simmering.

If you soak long enough, it gets just as soft.(the problem with soaking is that if you leave it to long it gets gross)

I like a 6-8 hour soak w/ simmering, but find 12 hours + simmering can be a bit excessive sometimes.

I soak for 12-24 + 20-30min simmer. Towel dry. Fine everytime.

WBS = t3h :bomb:

simmering just makes them so full of water though,

and I find adding verm a pain in the ass...

plus you are taking up space without really adding beneficial stuff (other than water) with extra verm :P

Verm keeps the substrate from drying out too quickly. Some ppl suffer from this when they PC.

If you soak for even 48 hours...then simmer...the grain will expand more. That means your not at full water content IMO. Can't do it without that hot water. Adding verm helps but...

Ah well...those who do, do..those who dont...dont :smile:

I don't fruit off WBS. WBS spawn into compost, quasi/compost or H/poo-straw mix is the way I go. Having all the time in the world, a long soak is fine. If you don't have that time, a shorter soak & quick simmer does the trick. Either way floats the boat..... IMHO.
