Substrate nutrition, but I can't tell you what specific amino acids, etc. because I'm not sure. In my experience: BRF cakes can be hit OR miss, Whole grain brown rice almost always produces potent shrooms, and horse poo consistently throws out potent shrooms.

You wouldn't think there is a terrible difference between BRF and whole grain rice because they are the same food source, but they are very different. I'd like to know why this is.

From what I understand, the difference between whole grain and flour is freshness. Once whole grains are broken apart and made into powder, the fats and some of the nutritional value start to degrade. Brf does not have a very long shelf life because of this. It is also stored/sold in a refrigerator in my town, because cold helps slow down the degrading process. I could be wrong, but that is main cause for the difference in performance between the two. Whole grain rice, in addition to being fresher, does seem to be helpful in providing an airy substrate though.

As far as amino acids, I wonder if you could get some pre-digested amino acids liquid from nutrition store and dilute in some water and use that water for making your brf mix and get a benefit?
