Texans seem to be the fastest pinners. Sometimes it's hard to get them out of the grain jars and into compost, etc., before they start pinning.

tex is very light sensitive. make sure you keep them in the dark with as little light exposure as possible. the tex are known to pin 6 hours after a dunk and sometimes even pin while submerged in water.

Mine pinned really early in the jars, and I had to wait until full colonization before pulling the cakes out, at which point I had full grown mushrooms in there. Made getting the cakes out of the jar a bitch.But I can't complain.

PFCs have done that. I wonder if it's OK to birth them Chronic style (no dunk) even if you suspect the cake's not fully colonized, eh?
Initiative comes to those who wait.

I would also agree that texas is the fastest strain for pinning invitro, and one of the best fruiters. These were inoculated by grain to grain less than a month ago. Being on a busy schedule, it hardly makes sense to go to the trouble making compost, and growing out casings or logs when you can do invitro this easily.

amazing, rodger.
until you showed similar pix several weeks ago
i had always believed what i had been taught,
to wit-
that cubies wouldn't pin on straight grain.
you have put that myth on the scrap pile.
we need to write up a whole new chapter
about invitro with grains.
your 'discovery' makes invitro faster,
more efficient and labor saving than ever.
stealthy, minimum labor,
yet productive and potent.
such values are every bit as important in my mind
as big beautiful fruits.
more so, in fact.

Myth indeed. Those above were grown on straight rye. 'Rules' were made to be broken. I agree, who cares about big, beautiful fruits? After all, dry powdered mushrooms from beautiful fruits look just like dry powdered mushrooms from broken up/smashed invitro fruits.

I got to thinking what might be helping the rye pin invitro. I always soak my grains for 24-36 hours before cooking. During that soak, I've been dumping the left over coffee, and half finished beers into the mix. That way as the grain expands, it absorbs the beer and coffee. Maybe it's the nutes or 'something else' in the beer or coffee that make it work so well.
