??Has anyone ever tried??
    #9756094 - 02/08/09 02:58 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Has anyone ever successfully used weight-gain protein powders as a nutrient for mushrooms? e.g. Substitute the protein powder for BRF in the PF tek.
Just at the store and was reading the nutritional facts on one of those big jugs, and it seemed (IMO) like it could be a viable source of food for mycelium.

If no bodies tried it any thoughts on possible success using it?

My thoughts were if it'll put 10 pounds on me in 2 weeks why can't it beef up my fungal friends.

lol ya man it sounds good to me...but from what ive read the substrate doesnt matter....mmmm there was a chemical though i read about. it starts with a "t". try searching enhance shrooms or somin. this chemical is kinda expensive but people swear that when u inject into your substrate it creates more of the psychoactive chemicals in the shrooms once they fruit.

lol. hes talking about bulking them up not potency i think. like if you could inject anabolic steroids into the mushroom to make a veiny muscley beefcake army. all throbbing and bustling :evil:

i was just joking about this with a friend, funny how u made a post that reflected the conversation. we were talking about using creatine or whatever that muscle powder is. but then mexico came up and steroids...never tried it but experiments are fun

I think when I get the chance monday or tuesday I will whip up a batch of whey protein media. Probably go with this for ratio:
Grow:B
3  half pint jars
1  cup Vermiculite
.5 cup Water
.5 cup Whey Protein/weight gain powder

Grow:C
3  half pint jars
1  cup Vermiculite
.5 cup Weak Coffee
.5 cup Whey Protein/weight gain powder

I will compare these jars to not only each other but also with equal time progress of my first six using:
Grow:A
6  half pint jars
2  cups Vermiculite
.5 cups Water
.5 cups Coffee
1  cups BRF

Purpose
To see if whey protein helps/hinders growth (though they will be done with different strains of cubes so results could be changed by genetic factors), allows growth, or is simply not a viable source of nutrition for mycelium. I will also try making an agar using the protein in place of other nutrients.
Progress so far:
Group:A was inoculated on 2/3
3 jars with B+ (syringe was very dark/murky)
3 jars with PF Redspore
At the same time I made a LC with the last 1.5cc of PF RedSpore (100%maple syrup & Filtered water). As of today there is small growth in the PF RS jars and something in the LC (don't know if it's sediment floating or myc growth).
The B+ jars already have good growth around injection sites. Will get pictures up of all jars when I get around to starting Grows:B&C.
