chill with the blablas,

alien has a very complicated but good recipe using quinoa and stuff. It's good, but I always went back to good old cheap bird seed. Nothing is easier, nothing much better. Pure millet you could use in a similar way. Just simmer on the stove for 45 min in an excess of water. Don't boil. Stir occasionaly. Drain. Rinse. fill quarts 1/2 to 2/3 full. Add a little scoop of gypsum if you want to/have some.

You could of course just make a flour in the coffee grinder and do pf style. I always thought that was a waste though. If you really want to to a pf style cake, just mix the cooked millet with verm 2 to 1. Like Hawk's magic formula. Or just forget about the verm altogether if your going to case it anyway, it's just a waste of space and money and effort etc.

Hawks magic formula can be found on his site, maybe in the teks section. Aliens should be in the teks section, but you may have to search for it.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I have used a millet/quinoa tek exclusively for the past 3 years.
millet steeped for an hour first.
2 parts millet(steeped)
1part quinoa(flour)
1/2part vermiculite.
I am too cheapo to go with big jars(too small of a pressure cooker) so I use 1/2 pints with a 1/2 inch vermic layer and innoculate via oven tek.
I find that this formula yields me approx 140 wet grams per cake cased and approx 240-290 grams when used to mix with straw(50/50 grain to straw ratio as close as can be guessed.
The quinoa flour is excellent to get things going for the mycelium. once the mycelium has begun to consume the flour, it has much more energy to penetrate the whole millet much more quickly. a varied substrate(large and small nutrient pieces) is essentail for a healthy mycelial matrix for ALL MUSHROOMS!
Iguess the vermic isnt really necessary, but it keeps things loose, and keeps a lot of air in there for the mycelium to breathe.
colinization is approx 2 weeks tops at 82 degrees f
the stats: quinoa has 10x the nutrients of brf, millet is also more nutritious, just dont know how much
I have been using just a plain vermic casing sometimes, or a casing of plain potting soil microwaved for 10 minutes and let sit for a day or two.
I crumble cakes into tray. same day, I nuke soil.
after 2 days or so, when the mycelium has recovered somewhat, I case with the soil.
I always notice super phatty rhizomorphs protruding like fingers from the casing within a week.

if the sign says dont pick the mushrooms, you should probably pick them

so you don't add any additional water to the substrate after steeping?
