BRF to Grain?
    #4065019 - 04/17/05 10:40 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I was reading Magesh's thread about creating more BRF cakes from a single one. My question is that I have a brf cake fully inoculated, and I want to increase the number of cakes I have as well as get better nutrients to my myc. How can I combine birdseed and my brf cakes in order to create a better substrate. Do I sterilize the WBS and BRF mixture seperately and then combine then with the colonized brf cakes in a ziplock bag and collinate? I searched everywhere and got tons of info on WBS teks, BRF teks, grain to grain transfers, but not brf to grain transfer. This could be very well because it doesn't work but before I dismiss it, can someone fill me in if this is possible?

So at what point do I combine them? Do I sterlilze the uncolonized seeds and brf cakes separately, and then just combine them together with the colonized brf cake in a ziplock bag?

After you have pressure cooked them...and let them cool down...you would put them into filter patch bag or a ziplock bag.

Then mix in the colonized substrate(in your case the brf cake).

last question...been reading a lot oabout using Poly Fill or Tyvek to filter out contams on top of the lid. But if all I am doing is sterilizing them in the pressure cooker, letting them sit in there overnight to cool and then directly mixing the sterilized seeds with the clonized brf in a ziplock, do I still need those filters? I am not innoculating them or or even letting them stay in those jars sinc they are being transported to the ziplock bag after cooling. So do I still need those filters?

I would for two reasons...they are cheap...Tyvek can be found for free.

Use the Tyvek filter...cause you will be pulling the jar out of the pressure cooker and into open air...before you put it in your glove box.

Added protection...is always good.

You never can be too sterile.

Well...you can be a little anal about being too sterile.
Like me.

If you are using regular lids without any inoculation holes in the lid then the answer is no you won't need any kind of filter. That's how I am doing it anyway and it works fine so far.
