Grain Teas
    #3963568 - 03/24/05 05:18 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I was just wondering what you guys dunk your grains in..
I've heard of people using coffe, poo, compost and straw...

I've got some poo tea (smells like there's amonia in it tho, might have to dilude it out or just chuck it) and some straw tea...
I was thinking about mixing the two and giving a go at some wbs again...I wanted to soak them in some type of tea...I'd use compost tea but i dont have any :shrug:

Anyone use anything else? Water's great but there's gotta be better shit out there :lol:

I have only been doing grains for a couple months now, but I have used Rodger's coffee soak from the beginning. I failed the first time due to too much moisture, but I am over 50qt. jars and counting without a failure now. I have done liquid inoculation to wbs, G2G from those jars, and now have some new strains going from multispore. Grains are pretty easy once you figure out your moisture content. My last batch that I did, I put in 2 cups of store bought poo along with my normal coffee water. It made the wbs much darker than normal, so I can only hope/assume that some of the nutrients from the coffee/poo got absorbed. I did G2G to those jars and the colonization was extremely fast, I cased every jar within 10 days. Next batch I plan to put in a half cup of karo in the soak water hehe. Experimenting is fun.

If you cut off my head, what would I say? Me and my head, or me and my body?

It kinda sounds like coffee is a champ when it comes to dunking. You've probably already seen it, but there is a ton of info at http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/2283143/page//fpart/1/vc/1

I know that I read one of hippie3's (sp?) posts recommending using poo tea in the wbs formula. Can't find it at the moment, but I will post a link if I do.

Anything really works. I'm not sure if one thing works better than others or than plain water. All the water that I use for pasteurization of compost/straw I use immediately thereafter for grain soaking.

So does caffeine help, like the link said or what? There are at least 20 pages and i have 25 post per page!

The last I raed, coffee dunking does help (a lot) but they haven't determined yet whether it is the caffeine or something else in the coffee. I've heard that someone is currently doing an experiment with pharmeceutical grade caffeine, but until those tests come back, no one knows.

I grow legal edibles only. Fresh Shiitake are the bee's knees - like, straight from the fridge.
