Cake 2 Cake transfer questions
    #3932144 - 03/17/05 09:19 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey there... I got some advice about a week back about doing a cake to cake transfer with BRF/PF-style jars. The word I got was to take a jar of sterilized water and add some mycelium from a fully colonized jar and then shake it up until it all disolves. And I can then use that instead of spore water to inoculate new jars.

So first off I was told that this method could yield a faster colonization, is this true? Also, if anybody's had some experience with this, how much mycelium/water should I use to make the myco-water and how much of this solution should i add to each jar? I've got some jars that'll be ready to fruit soon and i'd like to start up my next round...  :grin:  Any help is vastly appreciated.

the more the better, i made some brf portabella cakes the other day and i used 2cc's per hole so 8 cc's per jar. The more the better unless you get to the point wher you soak the cake.
Instead of mixing that mycel with water you should try karo/dextrose/honey/potatoe broth, the mycel will grow and you will have alot more inoculant


--------------------
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.

Thanks for the tips tahoe... I'm still curious though about the ratio of myc to water/liquiditus substance. How much colonized substrate do i need to use to inoculate say 12 jars? Are we talking just a little chunk or cutting off a slice or somethin?

Also... on the honey/karo thing... that doesn't seem like it would go too well with a syringe right? Would I just open up the jar and spoon it in?
