2nd go at pf cakes
    #4409263 - 07/15/05 09:42 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I nocked up 9 jars per pf tek last week but instead of leaving the substrate loose and airy I packed it in there. It is showing very little myc growth and some are starting to smell funky.
Today I bought a 15 psi pressure cooker and am starting over. I made the substrate and filled the jars very loosely using a 1/2 in dry vermiculite layer on top and am pressure cooking them right now. Tommorow I will inoculate them. I am using Florida F+. If anyone has any comments or suggestions i would be happy to here them. oh and if this round goes well i plan on using WBS on poo in the future I read that one can get much better results. :cool:

Welcome to the Shroomery. Better results on WBS and horse manure is putting it mildly at best. The results are phenomenal. If you enjoy potent shrooms you'll love bulk cultivation. About the only advice I can give you right now is to take the time to study up on casing.

If you can avoid it, case your cakes. Casing is a big part of bulk cultivation. Get casing down and the rest is pretty much a cake walk from there.

Good luck.
