eating mycelium from liquid culture
    #4186897 - 05/17/05 03:47 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

THIS 1976 adam gottlieb booklet explains a very fast and easy way to obtain psylocybin, put in simple words you start a cubensis culture in petri, then you make a liquid culture, take out the mycelium ball and dry it in the oven, then you extract active compounds with ethanhol, dry again and eat what remains.
my question: why extracting? can't you just eat the dry mycelium as it comes out of the liquid culture? can't you just make many honey or karo tek jars, then take out the white ball, dry it and eat it?
according to gottlieb, 2 grams of dried mycelium from a liquid culture contain about one dose (10mg) of psilocybin, so why extracting further?

I would imagine that "taking the mycelium ball out of the karo" would be a task in itself- picture the sticky goey mess that would dry in a clump of materials. Oven drying it would likely reduce potency or speed up the oxidation of the chemicals within. Why bother drying it? Wait until there is a nice big ball of myc in there, open it up, and spoon it down. IF that worked, it'd make life much easier for the home cultivator. You could just open up a jar, mix it with your favorite drink, and go to town.

of course you don't take out the mycelium ball, you filter the water out from it with a filtered funnel.

i'm much more interested in seeing mushrooms grow than taking psilocybin, and i'll probably move to edibles soon, but there are more than a few teks out there about psilocybin extraction from mycelium (avoiding the fructification process), this seemed to me the easiest, just asking you if it would work.

never eaten raw mycelium myself but it works. True psilocen/psilocyben extraction is actualy a lot trickier work and involves more than just drying out mycelium

yup gottlieb does it with methanhol and still says that what you get is only 25 - 50% active. i would probably opt for "dissolving" (= not extracting) mycelium in ethyl alcohol if i wanted a liquid thing, or eat the dry myc if i want a powder. wouldn't mess with methanhol though, which is deadly if misused.

Here's a question, since I've never done a liquid tek. What is the consistancy of the mycelium ball? Is it very fragile, or fairly thick?

I believe glitershitz comes from eating cakes made from the PF Tek, which you know consist of vermiculite, shiny rocks!

of course growing shrooms is much more satisfying, i'm just elaborating an easy tek for curiosity. anyway, do you think that 2 grams of dry mycelium from a liquid culture would suffice for a good "dose"? has anybody ever tried these teks?

lepiota if you actually try it i'd like to know how well it worked for you, it would be interesting to be able to just make mass amounts of liquid culture and just chug that.
