I always thought that shitake like hardwood better. . .I'd have to consult GGMM. Recently I went to Chinatown, S.F and talked to a lady who used to work growing Shitake in China. She said oak logs gave the best formed, most dense fruits [with the desirable 'star formation' on the cap. Anyway, the mushrooms she sold me were different than any other shitakes I've bought in my home state--these were DENSE, flavorful fruits...Back to the topic; If oak works well, so should alder. Ah, and I would recommend some straight log inoculations if you have a place for them; it blows sawdust to hell [but takes much longer].

alder chips/sawdust/bran works sup. for all woodlovers such as: shitake, nameko, reishi, enokitake, azures ,bohemica, baeocystis, cyanescens...etc
most of the edibles will fruit on that substrate...

I grow shitakes too. Alder shavings will work. I use a mix of sawdust, chips and rye grain. Incidentally, alders are considered a hardwood. They are a close cousin to maples.
