    #4024221 - 04/07/05 01:33 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

This is my first try.  I made these cakes in plastic jars instead of glass.  It works fine.

I woke up this morning and had these.

And this:

Its pretty sick, they took forever to grow (like 5+ weeks i think, but college sucks so it mightve been like 2).  Theyre all B plus.  I'm high right now so forget about all the typos in this post.  Also, my space bar is kinda broken on one side so if it looks like I forgot wanna them, I didn't, bitches.  word to your mothers.  Does anyone know what kind of yield I should get from these?  wanna my buddies says like two ounces dried out but I would be satisfied with one.  I'm just happy they're growing at all  :thumbup:
How many ounces dry total?
You may choose only one

contrats on your first try; your cakes look great.
But one thing I've learned is don't count your shrooms before you pick em. I had cakes and cakes that would get fluffy, start to pin and then just sit around on their asses and not do anything worthwhile, even though everything was close to perfect. It's infuriating.
So be prepared for that, but stay optimistic and keep everything just right. Those look great, good job and good luck!

yo but are you guys sure? i mean... ive got six cakes there... this is the first fruiting, right at the beginning. it's the second morning since they've even appeared. only 0.5 oz? you don't think that with like three more fruitings i could get at least a z? i dunno if i'd call this such a rewarding experience, since that would last one night, after i've invested months. with that said, how do you make more? the guides I read all said that I should be getting a lot more with this much. well... i forgot where i was going with this post. crap i hafta go to a meeting soon... meetings suck. to be honest its more of a cult gathering, were gonna drink blood and shit. no its a meeting

you might notice that one of the cakes has a piece cut out, well it got bruised, and i remember reading somewhere that you should do that. was it a good idea? one of the edges where i cut some off has started to bruise, should i cut this off?

cant expect get much out of brf cakes, try a bulk grow once you get the hang of things. thats the direction i want to go. nor can you expect so much for your first grow. take your time dude.

No, it was not a good idea.

2gs - 3.5 g's per cake. Those are dry grams by the way. Not bad if you ask me! Congrads on your first crops brotha! Case the tops of the cakes with moistened vermiculite next flush to up the yeilds. :thumbup:

6 Cakes.. less than 140g wet. I'm not experienced but I also think he will get a little more than that. But afterall they are small cakes. How do B+ normally yield? High.. Low? Big.. Small?

no, bruising is normal when handling cakes and when they get dehydrated, where
you may have heard about cake cutting is probably from the 'myth buster' Tahoe

what's a good bulk grow? i had an idea of how i could salvage the cakes that have already begun fruiting: pretty much after the first flush, I want to try and crumble the cakes onto stuff like straw and other materials that people have been using for bulk grows. if i took the container that i was storing all the cakes in and just cased one cake with straw and shit in there, would that increase my yield? well, class is over and so is my post.

i woke up and was shocked by how much the mushrooms have grown, they must have tripled in size. This is day 3:


At around 4PM i noticed that the veil was about to break on two, so i pulled them off. weighed 16g, wet. i put them in a bag, but they began to bruise quickly. one became very blotchy, so i put them in the freezer. here is a picture before they bruised:


if i eat the two of these, will it mess me up? im just gonna eat em an hour before i go out and hope to be hit while doin whatever im doin. ive never had mushrooms before, so tolerance isnt an issue. in fact, i really don't know what to expect cause no one around me has ever had them... what kinda college is this? anyhow, you should expect a trip report sometime tomorrow and ill check back before i leave to see if i should eat more than 2.
friday... allllright

If you want to eat fresh, you should eat about 10 times what you would dry. 35 grams wet = about 3-3.5 dry. Don't give up on your cakes yet. I did 5 cakes of B+ and got 250 grams wet first flush. Dryed to 24 grams dry. Your cakes look good. You could try casing them after your first flush, I did that with some KSSS and all worked out well. Good Luck.

And bruising is completely normal, especially after dunking. If you were to cut out all the bruising, after a couplr dunks, you'ld have nothing left. Very bad advice. Never do anything that drastic without checking with the more experienced growers first.

Move on to casing man. Cakes are pretty sweet though but dude the yields arent as great. I started out with straight verm-


See how the mushrooms on the casing are so much bigger then the ones on the cakes. That one big shroom was 3 grams dry :smile: Also casing produces many great flushes.

man i had those two shrooms. not quite what i was hoping for. in fact im not sure if anything even happened. i felt a little weird but i didnt see any surfaces doin that shit its supposed to. i guess those two shrooms just werent enough for one person. i ate a sandwhich an hour and a half before, would that affect it? it really seemed like a lot of shrooms at the time and tasted disgusting (i ate them alone and dipped in jd sauce). damn but that taste was bad.

If those two shrooms in your hand were all you ate, then no that wasn't nearly enough fresh. You would have to eat at least an ounce of fresh to get a real good experience.
