I used the PF tek method for my jars. 1/4 cup brown rice flour, 2/3 cup vermiculite, and 1/4 cup water. I innoculated 10 jars, each one colonized without contams.

Well I haven't used that many different substrates, but I have come up with a mix that works great for me. I was going to use aliens substrate but couldn't find the quinoa, so instead of 1/2 cup B.rice and 1/2 cup quinoa, I used a whole cup of B.rice. So basically its the same as aliens substrate.

Here it is:

.1 cup long grain brown rice
.1 cup vemiculite
.1/4 cup crushed flax seed
.1/4 cup crushed finch food(bird seed)
.1/8 cup wheat germ(optional)

Then I follow aliens instructions and boil the rice on low heat for 20 min. then add rice (and the water it was boiled in) to the dry ingrediants and mix well. This is usually the perfect water content and nothing else needs to be added. Occasionally a little water needs to be added. This usually happen when the rice is boiled at a high temp and alot of evaporation occurs.

Anyway, this is one way to use aliens substrate without the addition of quinoa, and it still makes a kick ass substrate.

The Lizard,

I use the good ol' organic rye kernels. I use them because of their high nutritional content and because their surface area is larger than most grains and therefore highly suitable to mycelial growth and larger fruitbodies.

Recipe (Stamets, MMGG (McKennas)

Quart sized jar

160ml rye kernels (approx 150g dry weight)
130 ml distilled water
1/2 teaspoon calcium carbonate

I used to be PF tek all the way. but latly i have switched to a substrate with 2:1 birdseed to verm and a little BRF throw in. i ususally use the birdseed to spawn onto straw. cause the birseed makes more points to innoculate qith than the verm BRF cakes. I have noticed my straw colonizes alot faster with birdseed cakes.

I prefer the 2:1 finch seed to verm for ease and great fruiting results. When I'm really motivated then I add in some brown rice and flax seed. They take a little longer to coloinize with the added rice and flax seed, but the flushes are even a little better.

But overall 2:1 finchseed to verm rocks for me.
