straw to straw transfer?
    #6925776 - 05/16/07 06:24 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

i only had 2 quart jars of rye spawn, so i made 2 smaller bags of straw spawn bags, and i would very much like to spawn to larger bags of straw so i can fruit from a larger substrate. i was wondering if its possible to do straw to straw transfers, so i can transfer this small amount of straw to large bags.

What size are your small bags and what size are your big bags of straw?

It's possible, with straw to straw there is a higher chance of contamination.

this is a picture of one of the 2 bags i have, they are both of the same size.


i don't know how big i was hoping to go, i mean, i'll keep going up to a laundry bin if i can, but could i fill up the breadbags at least half full of new straw then add this, making them about 3/4 full...

It looks pretty happy, I'd go at to at least 4 times as much straw probably more.

With a quart of rye spawn you could have easily done 10 times as much straw as you did initially.

ooops, i had no idea. this is my first time doing this, and people said do less than more for quick colonization and just in case....
in that case i will be pasteurizing more straw tomorrow and spawning the oysters on straw already to more straw, and the lion's manes that are in jars still to much more straw than i initially spawned the oysters too.

Grain spawn goes a long way in straw. I inoculated this laundry basket of straw with 7 quarts of rye berries. That's at least ten to one, but probably closer to 20 to 1, perhaps more.

alright, i know for the future. this is my first time doing this, i'm surprised i've had this much luck so far. i'm almost done pasteurizing my straw, in about 10 minutes, then i will spawn the straw and the manes that are still in rye berries. i'll put those in much more straw than the oysters...

How many pounds of straw is in that laundry basket Roger? Would that much straw in the pic compare to say a 3' straw log? And do you think the basket yield's more or about the same as a log? Thanks and good job on the video Roger it look's top notch.

I'd say it's 1/4 of a bale.
