straw tek
    #495553 - 12/19/01 02:54 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)

I'm doing old timers straw tek but I dont have a blender or food processor. I put a fully colonized cake in a baggie and mashed it around a bit and tried to turn it into a powder that way. Geez, I had a hard time. I thought it would break up easy but it didnt. It was clumpy and kinda sticky. I did the best I could though. Has anyone else had this problem? Did it turn out ok without powderizing the cake? I mean I did get a bunch of small particles, but it was not powdery by any means. I now have a bunch of straw ready to innoculate, but I'm unsure if I should keep doing it this way. Can I leave my damp straw alone until tomorrow when I can get a blender or will I need to prepare more straw? I've got a bunch of straw ready and I would hate for it to go to waste.

If you will it, it is no dream.

Im going to try the straw tek also it sound awesome!
My advice on your little problem take your mycelium and keep it in a ziploc bag till tomarro also do the same with your straw im sure it will be fine if it was pre-pasturized.
