see the problem you had was that the mush powder wasnt sterile. now do it right with a sterile mush or spores.

1/2 pint and wbs doesnt really go together. You always want to use bigger jars for seed. 1/2 pints and pints are best for brf cakes. You want a jar big enough to shake. You will have slow growth with the 1/2 pint

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Case all the 1/2 pints... IMHO the only reason for half pints is for BRF cakes, so I sugjest trying them since u have the jars... anyways, if you wanna do grains invest in pint or preferably quart jars and knock those fuckers up!  ^_^  You will be able to make mucho casings, and be like, O_O.

Anyways, just try casing them all, mabe do 2-3 small casings and a bigger one?  Or get ahold of some poo and try using Bulk substrates, it's easier than it looks, and the results are amazing, (at least from what I've heard, I'm planning on using Worm castings in a month or so).

Why will the growth be slow w/ 1/2 pints compared to say pints? I didnt think it would really matter?

the problem, according to legend, has been that with grains such as wbs or rye you need to periodically shake the jars and distribute the mycelium to get a nice even colonization. thus you fill a 1 quart jar about 2/3 full, leaving enough room for shaking. shaking also helps speed up the colonization time (i believe) if done at the proper times, say about 20% colonized and again at about 50-60%. go ahead and use the jars you've already prepared. let us know what happens. it's quite likely your jars will colonize and you'll get your little shroomies. but without shaking it may take a little extra time...incubate them at a steady 82-86 F if possible, with as little fluctuation as possible. this should help maximize colonization time. if you do this i think you'll have positive results. good luck brah.

shaking too often is counter-productive.

Shake once at about 10 to 20 %, and then leave them be.

It won't be too slow with 1/2's, but the quantity of grain they old is very small and for the price of bigger jars you are ahead to invest 10 $ in a box of quarts !

Once all of the 1/2 pints are colonized, put all of the seed in one tray and case it with moistened vermiculite.

Barely smell at all...you won't notice them probably
