Hey some of you might have read my post over at http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...;o=&fpart=1
Well here is the start of the grow log I promised.

Day1 - I've decided that in order to reach a yield of 50g , I'm better off shooting for the stars rather than aiming for the 50g specifically. So today I went out and ordered 2 cases of jars, thats 24 1/2 pint plus the two I have at home. Tomorrow I pick up the two cases and inoculate 26 BRF jars with the EQ strain.

Good to hear you began, i want to see how this one turns out!

How many syringes do you have/are ordering? Are you trying that 1/2 syringe per cake idea again?

If you dont there is another way to speed colonization alot. Use 5 innoculation holes, 4 on the sides and 1 in the middle. That can shoot colonization time down to 7-10 days

Good luck!

Day2 - I just finished making some syringes of some of my FAT ASS Dark EQ Prints. In total, 2 rather large prints were used. I will be using roughly 4.5cc per jar. Here are the pictures...?the water in these syringes were crystal clear befores spores went in ?

Okay so here we go, I?m going to go into as much detail as possible but this is my first grow log... I am going to be using BRF cakes and then case them in Pro-Mix I picked up at a gardening store ?peatmoss, perlite, manure?.

Here is what I used...24 Canning Jars, Vermiculite, Brown Rice Flour, Large container to mix in and of course a measuring cup.



Step-1
I used roughly 2/3 cup vermiculite, 1/4 BRF and 1/4 water for each jar ?24 in total?, I say roughly because my jars are slightly bigger than 1/2 pint. Firstly I added vermiculite to the container ?17.3 cups? in total ?26 x 2/3?



I then added the BRF ?6.5 cups? in total.



After the BRF was added I used a spoon to try and even of the consistency of the BRF before adding water.



Everything was then mixed up really damn good, until the consistency and moisture was at a standard. ?Note to self, use bigger container next time, this can bea real mess when mixing?



Step-2
I got my nice new jars and filled them with the formula, leaving about a 1inch space from the top of the jar



Here they are looking all nice and filled up, you really wont believe how much work is involved when filling 24 jars! ? Note to self...buy a pressure cooker!?

Finally got all filled, they look pretty.



I then took a few napkins and proceeded to wipe the inside top of the jar, I?ve learn?t my lesson, I really wiped this shit clean as contaminans once entered jars from this eccess formula left on the sides. My finger hurts now.



Hmm I have ran out of upload bandwith...i guess no more pictures today...

Plain ole? dry Vermiculite was then added to the space at the top of the jar in order to ?hopefully? act as a barrier to contaminants.



The jar?s were then covered with their lids and I proceded to wrap the jar ?from underneath up? so that no extra water would enter the jars during the sterilization process.



Step3 - The Jars were then stacked in a large mofo cooking pot and prepared for sterilization.



The pot was then filled 1/4 way up, so as to reach the middle of the bottom jar layer. The sterilization of the jars were accomplished by boiling the jars for approx 2 hrs, where the jars were then moved to a sterilized oven to cool down over the next 6 hours.



The oven was sterilized by preheating to 550 for 20 mins, instead of leaving the jars in the pot to cool down ?I had 10 other jars to sterilize?

Step4 - The syringe was prepared for innoculation by heating the needle ?sterilization? while sucking sterile air into the needle in order to shake about the spores.



The sterile needle was then inserted to the 5 innoculation holes at the top where approx 1cc of spore solution was used at each innoculation point. 18 jars were innoculated with the EQ strain, and the other six with the Creeper strain. ?Note to self, NEVER USE 60cc Syringes!?



After innoculation, the top of the jar was wraped with a piece of foil so as to help keep contams out.



All 24 jars were then stored in a nice dark warm room.

Finally Phase 1 complete, however the 60cc EQ syringe kept leaking like a BITCH, dropping innoculant on the jar tops. The syringe was also very rich in spores resulting in a blockage at times. The syringe was also hard to handle at times. I?ve learn?t already that it?s better to use 6 10cc syringes rather than one 60cc syringe. There is a gut feeling that jars innoculated with the large syringe may face contamination, I hope not! It?s been a long day, time to eat!

In reply to:

Yeah I think alot of people get contams cause the don't wipe the 1/2" inside of the jar before putting the dry Verm layer in.
I forgot to wipe it once and contams made there way into my jars.

Nice grow log.....good luck!

Your level of detail on this grow log is very high and is appreciated. If you can, please keep it as detailed as this.

At first when I read your proposal, I chuckled to myself. Not that I felt myself superior to you, but you have to recognize that a lot of people come through these forums with some huge ambitions and an unmatching level of patience or dedication. Your grow log so far, however, immediately seperates you from these other half-cocked, sky-high unrealistic dreamers. You are taking great care to protect against contams and have a solid understanding of grow technique. I'm not convinced you are going to meet your deadline on this project, but it's going to be exciting to watch you try. It's sort of like that movie "Smokey and the Bandit" where Burt Reynolds has this intense deadline to go pick up all this beer for a party and bring it back.

I am definitely rooting for the Bandit on this one.

well your goal is kind of "unheard" of i guess you can put it? I mean it takes a month just to colonize especially with the tek you have chosen. If i would you i would have started this a while ago. I mean your talking 500 grams wet. Are you going to be casing those? I sure hope you are. Cause if your planning on fruiting them on cakes, hahahah GOOD LUCK! No discouragement tho. Hope everything goes well in the coming weeks for you
