i think i might have facked things up here...
    #4623980 - 09/05/05 10:07 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

so i used that alien substrate recipe, with the long grain BR, verm.,quinoa and finch seed. don't have a PC so i boiled it in a big old pot, no splashes, for a long-ass time, made sure everything was still kosher, and inoculated. the one thing i did notice, i mean the recipe says its a very airy light mix, which is heady right? well my question is this.... is it bad to have little air pockets in the jars? will that screw me in the end? or will it turn out pretty good giving the stuff lots of room to grow?

pockets of air are not bad. Myc likes to fill them in.

ya dude
no worries about the pockets of air
im testing out hte alien substrate right now too
except i took out the finch seed and used sesame seed instead
but the myc grew half of my 125ml jar in 2 nights lol
and my jars with air pockets (coming back to topic now) have huge
colonization in them, in fact, that's where it started, other places
just have a tuft or two of myc

and about ur just plain boiling the jars, i doubt you'll get any fully colonized jar, i put all my jars in my pressure cooker, and all but 3 have been contam'd
those jars are now soaking in bleach as of right now

anyways, if it doesn't work the first time, buy a pressure cooker and
use the alien substrate again
if it wasn't such a bitch to cook the quinoa and rice i'd love it to death

The only thing wrong I see is the fact that you didn't use a PC for a grain substrate. BRF is fine to boil, but thats about it. You need to PC any other substrate.

yeah i was worried about that...not at least boiling the grains 3 times, just once, hopefully i get half of em to go, 4 500mL jars, none of the 1/2 pint tiddely wink tiny ones. but it is good to know that all the air pockets isnt a bad thing
