I think its where the guy mixed in wet verm with his millet and wild bird seed to give the substrate more moisture content. He had some nice pics of flushes with this technique.

After 8b days I see some colonising in my jars of rye with 50/50 coffee soak for about 10-12 hours or so. I think that MY tests are flawed at the start by not enough hydration. my further tests will be done with rye much more hydated, but sadly with a defective seal on my pressure cooker.
man whatta year I've been havin! but I wil be noccin up the ephedra jars soon! I just gotta get a clean syringe first!
wish me luck!

update of feb 13 :
thus far the fastest growth is on regular dextrose agar ,but it is the first day ,so might as well be contams ,the instant coffee i used about 15-25 'grains',maybe i'll try later on with varying the concentration of the coffee
the azures seem to spread their threads along the coffee ground ,the temps are low so it's going slooowly

a little birdie told me that our work has gotten the attention of a major spore vending concern and they are now experimenting with coffee-laced substrates.
the little birdie said initial results look promising.

these are the agar results thus far...the speed of germination doesn't seem to be altered by the coffee but once germinated it looks like the coffeeagar has more enthusiastic, abundant growth

I'm thinking of using straight coffee to moisten some vermiculite for use in a rez-effect casing.. I don't trust adding anything with nuts to the casing layer, and have no lime to buffer the ph, so I think this is a safe way to see how coffee affects my pinsets. I'm going to be doing two casings:

Control:
- Multispore GT
- 4 pints of substrate
- 1cm 50/50 casing
- 12"x10" cropping surface
- 25% addition of hydrated verm to substrate

Experiment:
- Multispore GT
- 4 pints of substrate
- 1cm 50/50 casing
- 12"x10" cropping surface
- 25% addition of coffee hydrated verm to substrate

If there is anything about this you think I should change, speak up. [/quote]

When I did the two casings, I first combined all of the substrate in one container, and crumbled it into rice sized peices, and mixed thoroughly to try and minimize the inconsistencies caused by multispore inoc.


Feb 15th: the coffee casing is saturated with pins, with roughly twice as many as the regular casing. They are about a day ahead of the non-coffee pins. So far, coffee is lookin very nice :-) I'm just waiting to see if the abort rate is high =X.. if not, im casing with coffeesized verm all the time. [/quote]

Total dry results:

Coffee: 1.55 ounces
Control: 1.1 ounces

Keep in mind this was multispore.. but so far.. I'm impressed with coffee. [/quote]

Five pf tek jars with 1 tsp. instant coffe added to the water innoculted with live myc. Five pf tek jars with 1 tsp instant coffe added to the water innoculted multispore. B+. Will update as progressess.

Just to throw this in here...lol texas fully colonized and pinning after 13 days multispore innoculation and not even constant 80 degree temps. What a killer :P

Just a thought. With human animals the caffiene works as a stimulant, and with that effect our organs (brain, heart, etc...)are the weak links in our make up.
Fungi have a simpler structure with less complex functions so the overall boost from the coffee may not be harming it as an organism nearly as much as it does us.
Not saying our little friends just simple slime, I've been educated to that fact. Hell they might actually be evolutionally superior to us in the long run!

It would appear that coffee might be good for more than just grains. These were grown in a small breadpan type casing, with the only departure from normal procedure being the compost was hydrated with coffee. Strain is BR which in my experience usually delivers small fruits. No coffee was used in the casing, but the compost is my usual 'cocktail' of store bought organic compost, composted cow manure, coir, verm, chicken manure and perlite, then the whole thing was brought to field consistancy with 50% strength coffee. I've never seen them this big unless grown on straw.

15 days post 24hr cold coke dunk. The first flush from this cake, after the 24hr cold coffee dunk. weighed out at 11.2 grams dried. The cake on the left is the one that got the coke dunk. The cake on the right which received a 12hr h2o dunk is on its 2nd or 3rd flush but is considerably bigger than the other cake, cause it has not produced nearly as many shrooms.

This is probably a dumb thought, but with all this coffee and coke dunking and soaking, would melted chocolate mixed with coffee, or coke, or a combination of the three, work better to soak substrate in, or dunk in than just one? I mention chocolate because I know there's caffine and sugar in it, just like coffee(caffine) and coke (caffine/sugar).

The cake that produced 11.2 grams dried pictured in previous post, was actually cold coffee dunked then it was cold coke dunked which produced 5.5 grams. here's some picks of a couple of cakes that had some contams near the verm layer but produced some shrooms invitro. Invitro shrooms harvested, contams cut off cake, 12 hour bleach dunk followed by a 3 hour cold coffee dunk. I like to put the coke can in the pick mostly cause it gives a size perspective on the actual size of the flush. My gut feeling as of now is that coffee dunks are better than coke dunks and caffinated water dunks might work well also.

p.s. I think the jar on the right needs to have bigger holes in the lid.

I'm completely blown away that after a coffee or coke dunk they don't turn totally green. The myc must really be working overtime.

btw,
the formula computes
to about 1/2 cup of ground coffee per gallon of water used to prep the grain.
