Rye/quinoa mix as substrate?
    #4505268 - 08/07/05 12:43 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

As long as I'm posting questions tonight, here's one more: I'm planning on using a 70/30 blend of whole-grain rye and quinoa as a substrate. Preparation wise, I'm going to treat it like straight rye, a soak followed by a simmer and then PC. After searching around the boards, though, I can't find mention of anyone else using a mix like this. Any recommendations, thoughts, experience, whatever?

Experimentation is the vehicle that carries us forward (and maybe higher!) in mushroom growing :wink:

Update: this substrate, the way I prepared it, has been a complete disaster. The problem is that the quinoa just turned into mush during simmering, resulting in a substrate that was way, way too wet and impossible to shake. Had huge contamination problems. Out of 18 jars inoculated, there's only one I feel comfortable casing.

I think it may be possible to make a workable rye/quinoa substrate using simmered rye mixed with quinoa which has been soaked but not simmered.

i used the two together but prep'd them separately. soak simmer on the rye and just a soak on the quinoa. seems to have worked well so far, the jars colonized pretty rapidly.
we'll see how well they fruit spawned to h poo.

sorry about your contam problems, i guess try try again.
:peace:
