Listen up you bookworms, the cultivating book of our time has arrived!
    #5516777 - 04/14/06 05:50 PM (18 years, 1 month ago)

Update 04/23/2006:
I apologize for the further delays in getting this book review up. I just realized that my tattoo artist has my book. I will pick this up later in the week and complete my review. While I have read the book, I do need it to make some specific references. Stay tuned.


Alright you hard chargers, the book we've been waiting for is here. The book I'm speaking of is Psilocybin Mushroom Handbook: Easy Indoor & Outdoor Cultivation.



Here is what you will find inside:

209 Pages

Chapter 1: A brief history of psilocybin mushroom cultivation

Chapter 2: The biology of mushrooms

Chapter 3: Psilocybe; The species (tons of color photos)

Chapter 4: Sterile culture technique

Chapter 5: Equipment and supplies

Chapter 6: PF Tek improved

Chapter 7: Working with Agar

Chapter 8: Working with grain

Chapter 9: Fruiting containers

Chapter 10: Casing soil

Chapter 11: Fruiting and harvesting

Chapter 12: After the harvest

Chapter 13: Outdoor cultivation

Chapter 14: The chemistry of psilocybe mushrooms

Chapter 15: The psilocybe mushroom experience

Chapter 16: Conclusion; Where to go from here

Appendices:

A: Quick reference for substrate and casing recipes
B: Glove box and flow hood plans
C: Resources (Yes, the Shroomery is one of them)
D: Glossary

I just got this book in today and will be spending my weekend reading and reviewing it. I will try and get a book review in by the end of the weekend. Now this book is not as comprehensive as The Mushroom Cultivator, but it is an awesome addition to anyone's library and is 100% dedicated to what we love. If you are a newbie, this book is a must have.

Please support the Shroomery by using the link provided for your purchase. Thank you and happy reading.

Just so everyone knows.....

Amazon isn't stocked with these books yet, and there will likely be a 5-9 day wait before they even ship. No biggie in my opinion, but thought everyone should realize patience will be involved.

Considering patience is involved in just about every aspect of this hobby, I doubt the people will mind too much :p

Yes, this is true to a point.

But whenever I order from Amazon, I grab a few things in order to get the free S/H (You have to spend like 25 bucks to be eligible). If one of the books is unavailable, it stalls all the others. Of course you CAN opt to send at different times, but goodbye free S/H.

Shouldn't be a problem in most cases. Just don't try to rush a birthday gift with the order.

Any liquid inoculation techniques and variations? [Re: boomerman]
    #5536317 - 04/20/06 01:39 AM (18 years, 1 month ago)

just wonderin if the book has liquid inoculation information and variations thereof, i.e create liquid innoculant from grain, or liquid innoculant from a liquid master...

BTW how long could a liquid culture remain viable in the fridge without any air exchange whatsoever?
