Yeah, listen to Clutch, start out with PFTek for Simple Minds.  Then when your cakes get colonized fully, do a casing tek.  The 50/50+ is easy from what I've heard.

Some tips:

innoc your jars on the rack of your oven like it says in the Tek.  FOAF's jars are all contam free... as of right now.

If your jars don't seem like the myc is growing much, take off the tape/tin foil/whatever so they can breathe.  FOAF did that last night and this morning he was shocked at how fast they took off.

Don't cut corners when it comes to sterilization.

And never be afraid to ask for help here on the Shroomery!  :cool:

I inoculate all my jars in my living room on my carpet. I have only lost a couple jars out of hundreds over the last year, and those were from a bad syringe I made.

Its pretty simple, proper sterilization of your jars and of your syringe and you shouldnt have to worry about contams getting in. No need for oven rack.

better safe than sorry. i also like the oven as a flo hood. u could also do steril work inside a NEW plastic bag.
