The Cheese Grater Incident
    #993951 - 10/26/02 01:51 AM (18 years, 10 months ago)

This post is kinda a double post. It has a story element (sorry) and some helpful reminders. So I had a couple (3 cambo 1 puerto) 1/2 pints brf that I thought were contaminated. They had been in the fridge (I could not do anything with them once they reached full colonization, so I put them in there until I had the opportunity to work with them) and they seemed to have some grey growth on them. They smelled a little funky as well. Rather then throw them out, I grated them up using a cheese grater, and spawned some poo straw compost. Well the compost wasn't pasteurized because I felt that I had nothing to loose and was just doing this out of curiosity. This was done on Tuesday. The tray was covered with aluminum foil and was allowed to incubate at room temp (in the 70's, don't know specifically, plus it changes very much in the particular room that it is in) . Well I just went to check on them, fully execting to see a tray of green and what do I see, almost complete colonization of the Poo.

The moral of the story: If you are going to use BRF as spawn, use a cheese grater instead of breaking them up by hand. And, pasteurization is very helpful, but not completely necessary. And most importantly Poo is fun.

I hadn't thought of the cheese grater before. I like that idea  :laugh:

I forgot who's post I read about it from, sorry, but props to whoever it was. Yeah it really gives you sooo many innoculation points, and its easier than the food processor (sp?) , IMO. Give it a go. I have a feeling you'll like it.

I think with cakes and other growing setups its pretty important to be sterile and really watch for contams. With poo tho, i have never sterelized, pasturized, or anything. It seems that poo is really really resistant (at least horse shizzy) to contams. I had some poo sitting in my garage, loosly wrapped in plastic for about 3 weeks, then used it, and everything turned out fine. In fact, the only time i have seen my poo get contamed is after the substrate is spent. This is all my opinions.

Another thing that I totally forgot to mention: the compost had a higher water content than most people recommend for spawning. Its like I did everything wrong and did great results.
