Campden Tablets?? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    #856045 - 09/01/02 02:37 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

What up!!!!!!!!!!  I have not posted in 2 years but I would like to say
DAMN!!!!!!!
Da shroomery has grown so much ya know.  But anyway.........

I have grown just about everything from baby woodrose to shroomies and have now gotten into making beer and wine.  With wine, camden tablets are used to stop contamination so you don't have a big barrel of nasty vinegar from airborne yeast and spores.  I was wondering if any of you have tried using it in your substrates.

Camden tabs are off the chain!!!!  All you have to do is crush one up to sterillize up to 10 gallons.  I have never had any contaminants in my beer or wine with it.  Wouldn't it be nice if you could just sterillize birdseed or rye in a regular pot (for those like me with no pressure cooker)with a couple of cam tabs and throw some spores in?

To bad I have no spores to play with. :frown:
Anyway, I have to try this just to see the results.

Sorry,but sulfites would be pretty much useless for anything to do with mushroom cultivation.(They don't even help your beer, for that matter).Once the pH gets above about 4,there is pretty much no "free SO2" available in a solution-it is all in other forms (sulfates,etc.) which are inactive.

i cant find the link, so ill type it out for you from a print out i made a while back....i found it at lycaeum somewhere...... since you are into making beer, wine etc.....try this:


Blue Meade

first off, this is a meade (honey wine) that is, in addition to yeast, shroom spores are added to the mix. the end result is a pale blue psychoactive meade and a clump of shrooms about the size of your hand. the recipe is for one gallon, but you canexpand/contract at will. WARNING: as with all brewing, and this one more than most, krrp everything STERILE! I dont want any of you getting sick(er) because of stray bacteria.

Ingrediants/Equipment:

For Mushroom starter:
one fresh mushroom(this recipe used Psilocybe mexicana)-really what you need are spores, so a print would work fine im sure
growth media(sterile solution of sugar and water)
2-3 petri dishes(the more you have the better your chances of one success)

For Mead:
3-5 lbs honey
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast
kettle
1 gllon bottle
cotton wad
fermentation lock(optional)
anti foam(optional)
Campdem tabs

Directions:
1 week before:
make a mixture of three tbs sugar to one cup water, Boil, put in petri dishes, cover, let cool. add spores to dish, cover and let sit for a week. By then you should have at least one good culture going.

the brewing session:
take the honey and mix with enough water to make one gallon. bring to a boil, and skim off the froth on top. crush one campden tab, stir in, add yeast nutrients as per directions on the container, poor into bottle, put a wad of cotton in the top. leave at least 2 inches of space in the top of the bottle. let cool and settle for 24 hours.

take the successfulpetri dish and a sharp knife. sterilize point of knife in flame open petri dish, and cut out a square inch of the culture, remove cotton from bottle, drop in culture and replace cotton. move as quickly as possible to avoid contams.

Wait one week(during which the culture should grow fairly rapidly, if not, repeat the above paragraph) and add the yeast as per directions on packet. (champagne yeast is said to work well) Fit fermentation lock and wait till all activity has stopped. Rack (poor off and save the liquid part leaving the solids behind, including the mass of mushrooms which can be taken as usual) and let age min of 4 months in a cool dark place

There is no possible way a clump of mushrooms is going to grow in a jug of fermenting mead.
