Composted Cow manure- going bulk for the first time
    #4032350 - 04/08/05 10:02 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

ok i finalyl got a chance to sneak in some cow mmanure to go bulk so i was  wondering if this composted cow manure mixed with humus will work out good, by the looks of it i dont think ill need any straw or anything due to the humus providing airation

there is the "specs" on the manure. i hope this stuff is good for shroom growing but then again it only cost $1.77 at wally world  :wink: and that would have been a wasted busride all the way with a forty pound bag of shit to carry.

Anyway my spawn will be 5 pint jars of WBS filled 2/3 full. i plan on just laying down a layer of manure then a layer of spawn then another layer of manure over it. then incubate for a a couple of days until i see the myc popping up nice and good then fruit. does my method seem ok if not i want all the criticism, suggestions, thoughts, etc. you can throw at me.

:mushroom2:so tell me somethin good ppls! :mushroom2:

HERE are the results of home depot brand, and in my oppinion, the results don't deviate that much.

THIS will produce results for you, though.

Shouldn't you mix your spawn with the manure?

Here you go. I'll share with you what I've learned. Mix your spawn with your poo. I believe about a 25% spawn to poo ratio. Place this in your casing container. Spread a thin layer of colonized substrate on top of this. This will colonize quickly and act as a barrier to contams while your poo colonizes. Cover with plastic wrap, poke some holes in it for air exchange, cover with a loose piece of tin foil, place in incubator for 7-10 days untill fully colonized. Case and fruit. Place back in incubator after casing until mycelium pokes thru, Place in fruiting chamber. Good Luck.
Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Mix it with coir/used coffee grounds/lime. Vermiculite works fine as an alternative for coir. In a spaghetti pot fill it 1/3 of the way coir or vermiculite. And then add another 1/3 of poo. Add a pots worth of used coffee grounds. And then fill the pot up with water, a little shy of full. Add 4 tablespoons of hydrated lime. Pasturize on the stove top @ 165-170 degrees for an hour, stirring regularly. A meat thermometor works great for keeping up on the temps. Don't excede 170. Allow to cool and squeeze the mix out to field capacity with your hands. Mix lightly with straw. 10-15% mix to 85-90% straw works nicely. Allow to colonize and case with casing material of choice.  :cheers:

thank you very much err... umm.. hot...nutz... but my cow manure is already mixed with humus so the airation thing that straw does is already taken care of. i also should be famous by now for the fact that i cant fucking find vermiculite (even tho wally world has every other god damned thing i need) except for online which i cant exactly do at the time

Not exactly. The humis is sandy textured. Aeration isn't going to happen after pasturizing. It'll turn to mud.

You could try a Rez effect with wbs or rye, but I still have my doughts.

Not if he cant find verm he cant. That does work quite well though..

I'd also add the coir, about 50/50 to the manure...the coffee grounds would help too, but for a newbie and your first casing, I'd stay away from it because it can alter your pH. The lime suggested to use with it would counter it...but still for your first bulk, KISS. The coir should be added though..I'd use 25% coir, 25% verm if you could find the verm...

Peat moss would work too, or straw..anything to fluff it up a bit.
