Hippie3 Dunktek Question...
    #728673 - 07/07/02 10:08 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hey everyone..
I have a single cake in a mini - terrarium (a little glass house about 16" tall, 10" in diameter, with a small dish of perlite for humidification). This is this cake's 5th flush using the dunk tek.
initially, after the 4th flush (achieved using the drinking straw method), I dunked the cake for 12 hours in evaporated milk (in the fridge, of course). I then put it back in the terrarium, only to notice a really rank ass smell a few days later(spoiled milk, of course). Rather than throw it out, I then bleached dunked the cake in 100:1:2 (water,bleach,vinegar) solution for another 12 hours, and then in sterilized water for 12 hours after that. I really didnt think the cake would pull through, but now there are 4 pins (and a whole crap load of tiny aborts, maybe 25 or so) growing from the top of the cake! The 4 pins look like they're definately going to make it through to maturity. They are EQ strain, have dark brown caps and brown streaks on the stems (assuming this is normal, after some searchin on this board)
My question is, do you think these shrooms are safe enough to eat? There is NO sign of the spoiled milk smell at all, as after I re-dunked the cake I disinfected the terrarium and used a fresh dish with new perlite. Im pretty amazed, this cake is in its 5th flush! I wonder how long it will keep going??

Thanks
Zesty

I'll be very surprised if you get anymore after this one. Hell, I'll be surprised if those few pins even make it to maturity! But, 5 flushes thats pretty damn good. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies! Yeah, Im pretty amazed myself - I didnt think it was ever going to fruit again! The 4 shrooms are definately going to make it, they're nearly twice the size they were this morning! After I pick them, Im going to clean off all the abhorts and try another dunk, this time with evap. milk and dextrose.

Thanks again
Zesty

Hippie3 - first let offer you a personal thanks for comming up with such an awesome tek...I mean the drinking straw method works well and all, but dunking really is the shit!:)

I actually redunked the cake tonight, although instead of milk/dextrose I ground up some brown rice flour, boiled it with a tbsp of brown sugar (figured what the hell:)) until it turned into a BRF 'porridge' Then I added more water until it had the consistency of milk, and ran it through a strainer. Now Ive got the cake sitting in that! If I get a 6th flush out of it, Ill crap my pants:)

Thanks for the reply!
Zesty
