Oldtimer powdered cake method questions.
    #748306 - 07/15/02 03:03 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Anybody tried using powdered cakes for spawn?

I know the oldtimer tek calles for straw, but would it work for worm castings?

Anybody had problems with it?

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

How contam resistant is worm castings?

I'm about to crumble a contaminated cake,(after peeling the outside layer off) into some worm castings. What are my chances with straight castings?

i liked them, a bit more contam-prone than ordinary composted manure but good yields.
the powdered cake method works good, just don't over-spawn, use 1 cake per gallon of castings minimum for fast colonization.

What type of contams are castings prone to?

Molds? Bacteria?

Am I wasting my time using this contaminated cake?

It has a green/gray fuzz growing on it.

I'm not casing it.

I'm using it as spawn in worm castings.

Well, I am now trying old timer's tek.
I just ground up a coupld of BRF cakes.....B+
I have a larger tub, which I used 2 for...
and a smaller box lined with plastic and used a little over 1 cake.
It has covered pretty much everything. I only hope that the straw isnt too wet.
I let it drain for like 6 hours. And it got nice and cool and it wasnt dripping.
But its really freaking moist!
Anybody know if this is gonna be ok? Old Timer?
Thanks!
