BARLEY SUBSTRATE= BEERY MUSHROOMS??
    #4416616 - 07/17/05 11:05 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

ok.  i dont even smoke ganj any more, which makes this fuckup really sad.  i guess the four years of being continuously stoned in the kootenay mountains of BC are catching up with whats left of my brain cells.

while preparing the substrate for the pf tek, i grabbed what i thought was a bag of brown rice, but was actually my girlfriend's barley. :confused:  i ground it and combined it 50/50 with organic dark rye flour and sterilized... just today i discovered my oops, but i have yet to inoculate. 

has anybody experimented with a substrate of 50% rye flour, 50% ground barley?  should i inoculate?  what can i expect if i do?

help!  thanks tons.

If you have plenty of sporeprints I'd say go for it but start a new set of jars done right in case it don't work.

It should work very well. Barley is very high in tryptophan, far more than millet, rye, wheat or rice, tryptophan is said to increase potency.
I am going to start using barley in my next grow. I figure yours is shelled barley since that does look a bit like brown rice, whereas normal barley looks more like rye.

Another grains higher in tryptophans are quinoa and oat.

Do the experiment and tell us the results.

Good luck! :mushroom2:

I actually have 2 jars of barley/verm colonizing right now. I'm seeing those nice long ropey mycelium strands and I'm glad to hear it should work well because I didn't buy BRF up until a couple days ago :grin:.

Here are some pictures of aggressive colonization I'm getting with barley. Just ground to flour and subbed for BRF.



What do you guys think?
