i didn't weigh it but i'd guess it was 12oz, somewhere in there. It had some good density to it that is for sure

Wow that's a real beauty.. The biggest I have ever seen.

Could you tell more about your substrate. How much powdered milk did you add, how long did you sterilize?

Everything you need to know is in this link, however i have found that the ammount of water should be cut back to about 6 cups, or somewhere in there to aquire field grade sawdust.

The sawdust is simply woodpellet fuel(hardwood), no sterilizing, just pasturize. I mixed up 15 gallons in a cooler and poured the hot water in and let it sit 24 hours to pasturize, the cooler was still quite warm the next day , but after i added the additional water it cooled to where i could mix the spawn in.
