Mycellial Trip?
    #380465 - 08/28/01 04:17 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I've got about 36 jars of various sizes in various states of colonizing for about 4 weeks. (The larger ones are the older ones.) The larger, 2pint-sized jars seem to have halted colonization. I've seen no progress in upwards of a week. When I open the jars to recycle the air, I see thick, fluffly white clouds of mycellium. I've seen teks that state you can trip off the stuff, but they don't use PF substrate.

In theory, could I borrow the top mycellium layer out of a few jars with a clean spoon, and get some type of favorable psychoactive results? I've done acid a few times, but never shrooms. Frankly I'm excited that the day is drawing nearer, but I'd love to sample a bit today.

Any thoughts?

are you using pf tek substrate but in 2-pint (32 oz) size? thats awfully large, and perhaps a reason why your jars have stalled, or are taking so long to colonize.

i dont know about the myc., tripping off of it... never tried. itd seem you couldnt get enough for a decent dose to risk it (the amount youre saying), and you may invite contams in by opening the jar and scooping. plus, you dont wanna eat verm- thats why you havent found a myc. tek that is used with the pf tek style jars.

id wait... if you think theyve really halted for good, and theres no icky smell coming out when you open the lids- you could always scoop out the uncolonized parts really well and crumble/case them. may also invite contams, but 4 weeks in a jar with stalled colonization seems like time to do something. well- it would be if you were using 1/2 pints, but im not familiar with the colonization time of a jar that large with an un-shakable substrate.

gluck, let us know what you do and if you trip or not :)

yeah... 2 qt. is pretty big. I use Qt. jars and they take long enough -- so I can definately sympathize with your impatience, especially due to the fact that if you like trippin' on 'cid you're gonna love trippin' on boomers.

but... I have a cheese cliche for you "the best comes to those who wait" :)

peace out!

One pint of full colonized substrate, one quart of cranberry juice in a blender. Mix the hell out of it and strain, feeds one.

So 2 1/2 pint cakes put in a blender with some cranberry juice will do the trick. But wont little pieces of verm get strained through? And don't you have to add some vitamin c? How strong is a 1 pint trip? Level 1, 2, ...

LEGALIZE...

get a pair of pantyhose for straining, they seem to work good, easy to work with, and just about every house in america has a pair, unless your livin in my bachler pad =P

You approach the turnstiles and know
that when you get there you have to give
the man two dollars or he won't let you
inside but when you get there everything
goes wrong.

Yeah, Shiznitz, add a vitamin C tablet, (ascorbic acid) about a level two. You can strain it thru a piece of an old T-shirt.

Best way to extract the goodies from cakes went like this.

1. Cut the cake into fairly smally pieces.
2. Put the small substrate chunkes into a shakable container
3. Add Cranberryjuice and a vitamin c.
4. Shake the fuck out of it.
5. Filter out the chunks. Some chunks may be ok depending on substrate. I dont think vermiculite is particulary good for the digestive system tho.
6. Drink that shit up.

I did that with 5 jars that stopped growing bout halfway thru. Had a fairly weak trip. Although when i used to grow from cakes i would do the same with spent cakes and for some reason spent cakes u only need like 1 or 2 cakes for a good trip.

Hey ... I just did this, a few weeks ago w/ my mom.

We crumbled 2 1/2 pint BRF cakes into a quart jar, added crnberry juice to an inch above the cake crumbs, and a teaspoon of Vitamin C powder. Shook for 5 minuted and strained, then repeated the process again with more cranberry juice, mixed the juice and split down the middle.

We each got about a 3.5 trip (on a 1-10 scale). Less of a trip and more of a REALLY nice afternoon buzz. I bet one person could have some fun with two cakes ...

The cake crumbs went on the compost pile, we'll see what happens ...

Good luck :)
