Walk us through your procedure. What kind of substrate are you inoculating with and how much? Where and how are you incubating your straw? Are you pasturizing your straw? Are you using the oven bags for the straw? Did you chop the straw? I found that an incubator is very handy for straw, but I don't know if that is your problem. We need details!
------------------ "It never got weird enough for me."
Just thought I'd throw in a tally; I only tried straw twice and probably with questionable enthusiasm after I screwed up my best knife cutting it. Found it a bit messy for some reason too. Birdseed is great.
If you can access a hepa filter unit & rubbermaid container, the two can be connected with something as simple as a garbage bag. Cut handholes and now birdseed-birdseed transfers are easy & w/o gloves. Transfers are the real gem of this material; well shaken birdseed can effectively inoculate ten to twenty times its mass. cool] Tip--water content is important and is what nails most people. I have yet to get bad jars with this measuring method: Put bs in jar to any desired level [~1/4-1/3 best for shaking] and add water to the point that the first seed begins to float. Or close.
