Quinoa as a grain substrate
    #3957017 - 03/23/05 12:32 AM (13 years, 21 hours ago)

After reading the various grain substrates, I was wondering if anyone used quinoa as a primary grain for inoculation? Questions, gripes, complaints? I was going to follow the same instructions as the Brown Rice (simmered) technique.

if you want to make crap cakes i think it will work fine you can grind it with a coffey grinder.
i have added to my rye grain spawn and it worked well but i add just a bit i would say you cant use it strae for grain spawn becse the Quinoa pops and mushes after presser cooking each and ever one of then that are even consterted a grain but thare some waht of a wonder food find some cool Quinoa facts do a google search

quinoa is SLOPPY. i mean, apparently its high tryptophan content er whatever makes for more potent zooms but its slimey after cooked/soaked.
Ive seen substrate recipes call for like equal parts of rye and quinoa....NO WAY! i tried it, didnt like it, so i lowered it down a lot...still added some tho :smile:
one of my quinoa/rye jars that are incubating right now is just a jar of slop. a waste. this is my first grow attempt though. some are very successful.
