Being a "newbie" I`d try a simple straight verm casing for starters. Us the PF tek to acheive your jars of colonized cakes. Then after 100% colonized....crumble a few cakes in a zip lock bag to marble-size pieces and put over top of a damp verm bottom layer in a tin of some kind then case over the top with damp verm.. You should get a few nice flushes this way.. better than just plain cakes. Then when you succeed this way move on to 50/50 peatmoss/verm casing.. or a horse or cow poo bulk substrate. Try something simple at first or you get frustrated with failure.

I have found that grain spawn, straw, and worm castings is the best for me. Simple and cheap substrate, all can be bought in bulk. And the straw tek is not hard to take care of at all. I make the spawn (canning grain...) and then mix that in with worm poo and straw. Thats it! When I use the B+ strain, I get 100 gram mushies left and right. Only one thing though... I also dunk my cakes before cropping and between flushes, which I totally recommend. If you want to know my exact tek that I follow, just PM me and I will type it up for you.

Go with the PF Tek for the first run. Crumble and case a few, and fruit a few as plain cakes. This will give you the most experience and best chance of success for your first time.

Just use a few jars worth to do a poo tek. Its really not that hard and as long as you're not spending your entire amount of jars on poo failing will not be a massive deal. Roadkill's Poo Tek is basically all you need for poo.

I would never recommend working with bulk substrates to a newbie.
