That sucks. Here is what I have-


I have a friend who is currently trying out the 2:1 birdseed to verm. The jars that have been done with that show extreamly fast colonization and NO GOO!!!! I think it may be the safest way to do birdseed if you have problems with it. Then there was this little tid bit I found the other day which sounds fun.

"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."

I don't know who posted that and I feel bad since they should get some credit as I haven't heard that one yet. Shit. It was from the advanced board not too long ago.
Now go help somebody.

Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.
