This is just to see if anyone can see errors in my method.I've been through the archives and read near enough everything I could find.
Ok, I plan to make a spore syringe using a 3mm by 3mm square of spores.
Inoculate a sterilised honey tek jar and leave for a week.
Make myc syringe.
Soak rye grass seed from Garden centre in water for 48 hours then simmer for 10 mins. (might change for dilute coffee/water solution for a jar)
Load jars.
PC for an hour.
Inoculate.
Leave for 3 months.
Enjoy

A couple friendly suggestions:

You might as well not make the syringe. You could just use a tool to scrape a small amount of spores into the honey jar. This way if you fail you can fall back on your print. Make sure to use sterile procedure (glovebox at least).

Don't soak the rye grass seed. It doesn't soak well like rye or birdseed for some reason, I guess the small kernal size. I've tried both ways and found the best way to do it is combine 1 part water 1 part seed right in your jars...let this sit for a few hours to a day, and then just PC. When you soak it, simmer it, and drain it it always ends up too dry, IME.

:-) good luck

just don't use the whole print to make a syringe,
it only takes a flake or two...
but i'd grow it on agar instead
and make my syringe off that.

Namaste

You also don't mix grass seed and water one to one, and you don't soak or simmer. Do a search for mex a. Somewhere I wrote a very detailed tek for preparing rye grass seed. We're leaving for the mountains soon. No time to look for it. It's probably at the bottom of fungi somewhere in the 'archived threads'.
