    #4339411 - 06/26/05 04:32 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Has anyone had success with the Popcorn Tek? Pros? Cons?
A FOAF is thinking of trying it next. It seems alot easier to get than the rye berrys. Thanks guys!!!

Go with WBS. It is effective, cheap & easy.
Beats popcorn - hands down.

from what i've seen popcorn works good, but rye is the grain of choice IMO. as far as being easier what could be easier than, soak, simmer, drain, pc

I just got thru doing a comparison....i had been out for a while, but periodically popped back in the shroomery to read and keep up on new shit. i had read alot about popcorn, and thought it might worth a shot, i did up 10WBS and 10 popcorn, I cased the WBS like 5 days ago, meanwhile my popcorn has not even finished colonizing the jars....not to mention what has grown looked weak and unhealthy.

Other have had some success with it, but personally I do not recomend it.

Like Roadkill said....use WBS....I have always found it to be quick and easy. Good luck!!!

Wouldn't bother trying popcorn at all. WBS is very accesible and works just fine. I am going to keep everyone updated for when i do straight millet, quinoa, red lentil and straight rye berries and see which one comes out on top.  :thumbup:

I used popcorn alot and if done right it is very fast colonizing but it is a hassle wbs is much easier plus you cant fruit off of popcorn. the trick with popcorn is you have to soak it for 24 hours like wbs. but you must then drain the water then put in a big pan and boils some water in another pan then pour the boiling water over the popcorn and simmer for about 20mins. if you try to bring the room temp water to boiling with the popcorn in it it will overcook first. next pour the popcorn into the strainer and rinse it very thoroughly with HOT water and mix it around as you wash it is important to wash off all the starch you will see globs of it in your sink when you take the strainer out starch is bad it causes slow to no growth and some contaims love it then leave in strainer for an hour or so it will look too dry when ready but all the moisture is inside

i know im still a noob and i havent tried WBS and rye berries and all that stuff yet.. but i have done up a lot of popcorn jars and you dont have to do half of all that.. atleast i dont.. and i have gotten my first contaminated jars so far *i think my honey water is contam.. only all of the 1 strain turned on me :frown: * i use this tec http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/25049 all you have to do is soak for 24 hrs in a pot u can simmer the cernals in then after the 24 hr soak put it on the stove and bring to a simmer/low boil for 1 hr, check every once and a while to replace lost water from the boil then strain for 30 min then fill jars, PC for 45 min then inoc jars when cool.. its been taking me about 1-2 weeks to colonize 1 pint jars of pop corn.  i just finished up my first flush off of 2 6 qt casings with popcorn and got 513.3 gm wet weight.  hers the pics   i am going to give the others a try later on.. but i read all these bad things about popcorn.. and i love it.. and its cheap .80$ for 2 lbs at wal-mart and that can do up like 6 pt jars atleast.. well thats my 2 cents..

well mabye the diference is that I always cooked up at least 4 pounds dry at a time and bought popcorn that was for farm use as feed. but when ever I cooked the popcorn too much nothing would grow at all and the rinsing definitly is important when I did it the way I sayed I would have fully colonized quart jars in 7 days like clockwork. if not rinsed well it would take like 10-12 days all knocked up with liquid culture. I really dont understand how your popcorn grew after 1 hour simmer but it works for you so thats cool
