What is the best tek for colonizing bulk substrates of BRF and Vermiulite?
Also I was wondering if oven bags can be used like in the Hip's bulk tek, or is this tek too risky when it comes to contamination.

Well you actually can use the brf/verm cakes to SPAWN bulk substrates if thats what you mean. You have to start out with spawn, cause otherwise it will take too long to colonize a bulk substrate and that leads to contams.

Ive done a few things with this, and its much more benificial to go out and do some grain for bulk, as it goes mush, mush further. BRF/Verm cakes are mostly verm, and thus you need more to jars to spawn bigger amouts of substrates.

Basically you can spawn into straw or manure or the two mixed.

Hope that helps?
