Yeah, I would love to see all my jars colonize nice and uniform. Just doesn't happen though. Some jars will finish in 15 days, others from the same batch will finish in 30 .

When you do have a situation where some of your jars finish in a couple weeks, and others finish in 4 weeks, what is the best way to deal with the early bloomers?
For example the way I have been storing jars after inoculation is to leave the jars maybe a 1/4 turn loose and tape the 4 holes over. After a cake has become completely colonized quite a bit before the rest of the batch, should I tighten the lids on those or leave them as they were?

Just curious.

Also I have been looking into getting some of the filters that go over lids to allow more air intake into a jar. Can those filters be reused multiple times, and also do they make much difference over loosening the lids?

Thanks in advance

I like to put 7 cakes at a time in my fruiting chamber, so if only 3 are fully colonized, I just stick them in the fridge until 4 more are ready to go. As far as the filter disks go, I've never used them on my jars.

I use verm/quinoa flour/finch seed flour, and my half pint jars are done in 6-8 days! No Joke! Quinoa is 10 times as nutrient BRF, and the bird seed you all know whats up with that great stuff! I keep my jars at 80-83 degrees and they all colonize evenly sooooo FAST!!!!!!

Look under Health Food in your yellow pages. I got quinoa flour & flax seed meal at a local store. I've been mixing rye, quinoa and brown rice flours in some jars, and using a recipe by Ryche (birdseed) in others. I don't keep good records, so I'm really not sure if it's made a difference, but I figure the more variety I give the babies, the better the chance that I'm feeding them something they really like.
I can tell you that my Pes Hawaiians seemed to love the rye. My first successful casing is one little 1/2 pint rye cake cased with Jiffy Mix, and I just picked my first flush last night. I got my biggest shroom ever - 15.5 grams wet, and a total of 45+ grams wet. I don't know if it was the rye or finally getting a casing right, but I was pretty happy with the results.
Definitely experiment with quinoa, but try rye flour too, if you haven't already. I got my rye flour at Harris Teeter, in the baking aisle.

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.
