I understand Anno, hehe. Sure wish I was living back in Austria, then we could hang out and go shroom hunting together. I find that since I have stopped shroom hunting...no choice of my own...I have lost a lot of energy as well. But your dummies series are truly inspiring...cheers.

As i have found out recently, pretty much anything can be used with agar...as long as the nutrients are good.
Here is a an interesting link, where the guy uses blended green beans...pretty cool.
http://www.kitchenculturekit.com/Mushroom/agarplates.htm
Just my two cents...

The agar that is used on that page is still in "stick" form, usualy this type of agar is the cheapest (pricewise). But, you do have to grind it up , or blend it like the website suggests.

There is no reason to be spending so much money on bacteriological grade agar. Especialy if your not going to be growing anything closely resembling bacteria on it.



$.89 for 25g

One more thing, this stuff is ALWAYS on sale during the holidays. I suggest finding a nice Asian supermarket and asking lots of questions(just don't tell them your growing something on it because they'll look at you like a crazy white man). They will be MORE than happy to help you.

No that is not my site. Just something I found in my research travels, if it works for edibles, it will work for magic too. I haven't tried it with the beans yet, and I use the telephone brand powder as well. But I just might give the beans a try as well. Cheers

Brown Pasteures, if you're in the US, where did you get that stuff? The only agar I can find is a freakin rip off-like $6 for an oz. of the same shit you get!

Yes I normaly just click reply to the last post in the thread, reading my post usually will clarify whom I was responding to..hehe. I live in Canada BTW, and I use the powdered form...costs like 89 cents at asian grocery stores. I also use the microwave to steralize, like that guy does. If I am inoculating with mycelium isolates, then I always mix a little H2o2 in with it and haven't had one contam yet with this method...works great...and I must say it is weird but I find I am way better at agar work than any other method...cheers.
