a newb needs help:please
    #4736559 - 09/30/05 02:08 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have read alot of the PF FAQs, and as far as I understand you can do this with a "cake" or from grain. I have a preorered and presterylized 1/2 gallon jar of grain. Can someone please point me the right method? I have an idea that I inoculate my jar of grain (3/4 full, very loose) and then once mycellium have grown I transfer the contents of my jar to a sterile terrerium? I cannot seem to find and exact method. I have a method of an incomplete video of a guy doing this but he added sterylized vermiculite on top of the grain once his was inoculated and poured in his terrium.Could someone please help me lead myself out of the dark? I am ready to get started but am so confused by the massive amount of information here.

What you are talking about is casing. your best bet would prolly be to case your grains as a cake would yeild less.
here is an easy casing method, since you are working with grains you will just shake the jar instead of using a bag to break apart the colonized grains.click here

OK I have good info. on how to make casing, and that after I get mycelium in my jar.

My only other question is, I need to inoculate my jar. It's a big 1/2 gallon jar, should I use the whole 10 units on the syringe to inoculate?

thanks guys

The more you use, the faster it will go. I would use at least 2cc's. Once you get about 30% colonization, you can shake the jar to spread out the myc. Then just wait until 100% colonization.

OH crap, I used to whole thing. My logic was that it was a half gallon jar. And once the mycellium grow enough I guess I will use the aquarium method, poor the grain on the bottom of the sterile ( whiped clean with alcohol ) aquarium, spread it out,cover it with sterilzed casing, wet it down with a spray bottle, and cover the whole thing with shrink wrap with holes poked in it.

This is the general idea on how I am going to do this.I am sure by the time my jar grow spider webs I will have this figure out.

Any constructed critisism is welcomed, all help is welcomed.

I hope you don't really get spider webs :smirk:

Your idea sounds good to me. You can make spore prints afterwards and make your own syringes so don't worry about the 10cc's too much. Good Luck :thumbup:

From reading your posts, I am guessing that you haven't gotten much experience thus far. It's my roccomendation that you start out with simple cakes. This way, you will learn a lot about humidification, sanitation, and if you screw up, your whole effort isn't lost.
