Fruiting WBS cakes..?
    #4063745 - 04/16/05 11:57 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

A friend of mine wants to know if its possible to fruit a WBS cake like one would fruit a BRF/Verm cake or are casings a must do?  Would the cake fall apart since it is seed, or would the myc keep the cake webbed together?  Thanks in advance! :sun:

As long as it's fully colonized and can be removed from the jar easily, it will be a solid mass. The WBS may start crumbly, but the mycelium binds everything together VERY well.
I use wide mouth quart jars and I have to break them up to get them out using a sterilized butter knife. I also case mine and it takes some effort to break it all up and get it out.
Plus you'll get better flushes if you break it up and case it.

Not as good, but it works.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
