I got this grow going 2 weeks ago June 9, 2018

 

It has been a few years now since I was generously gifted 3 strains of cubies.

I had great fun growing out Red Boy.

 

Now it is time to give Burma a go.  I hope I have the name right.

The spore print could make a bucket of syringes.

 

I prepped a 5ml and 10 ml syringe.

The suckers were dark purple, gorgeous.

 

I made up 2 1/2pt jars of LC using dilute potato water

and 1/2t of honey per jar.

 

I made up 10 1/2pt jars, tall style, PF cakes as follows:

 

1/4c  BRF

1/2c  Vermiculite

3.5T  Hard water

1/4t   Egg shell, powdered

1t      Coriander seed, powdered

 

The jars and syringes were PC'ed 30 minutes at 15psi.

The syringes were then filled with boiling hard water.

Time passes...

 

I made up some very potent Burma syringes

I was so jazzed,  Cours dude, what a print.

I knocked up each cake with 1 ml of Burma spores in 4 injections around the clock

I let a squirt get sucked into each LC jar

The LC is still under vacuum.

Is it OK to keep LC under vacuum long term?

 

The project looks like this

Burma 21-Jun-18 PFs and LCs.jpg

 

Looking solid so far. Temps have been in the low 70's.  Getting warmer.

I would think the spore count is too overwhelming to have a contam problem.

The jars have that dry look so,

knock, knock, knock,

it should be smooth sailing to the next step.

I do love to watch Dipole grow Logs! Gots my chair ready. I bet that dark ass Print was a partial that came from a monster like you’re going to have soon.

The amber is a pretty color.  It is the honey I used. 

The cakes are coming along OK.

I still don't see any noticeable change in the LC.

Well I don't know if coriander seed will do any good,

I hope it doesn't do anything bad.

The thought is to put some oily seed into the substrate.

I have a 1lb bag of coriander seed I use for making pastrami.

It is largely roughage,

so I figured a teaspoon per jar would add

as much oil as maybe 1/2t of flax.

 

So I put the brown rice,

0.1lb at a time in a coffee grinder.

I put in 1/4t of egg shell as per the Cat dude and

a teaspoon of coriander.

Then I ground it all up and

then I dumped it into a jar for later processing.

 

Is there a substitute for vermiculite in the PF TEK?

Verm is going for $17 a 12 quart bag.  Ouch.

Can coir be used for casing the cakes?

 

I was reading a Hippie3 historic thread,

his story of being fucked with by the DEA.

He mentions his greatest contribution to mushrooms,

a bottle of alcohol with mushroom

that was not seized by the agents

while they had a boot on his neck.

 

Can someone be so kind to point me to

the TEK for making Hip's greatest contribution?

In my experience cube myc doesn't care much for too much oil/s, I couldn't get myc to grow on my flax seed agar and ferather pointed out that flax seed has a heavy oil content.

Thanks CatsAndBats and PsyBearknot for all the good info.

Well, at this point, all I can say for using coriander is,

it smells good.

Thanks for setting my memory straight about the DEf'ingA story.

 

Thanks coursmikey for pulling up a chair.

I have been wanting to try out Burma for a long time,

or one of those far away location strains.

I am looking forward to having a great time watching this grow too.

Your alcohol extract TEK looks perfect for me.

I have not been able to have any sort of trip yet because

my digestive track totally rejects mushroom solids.

My extract yields with teas have produced disappointing results.

 

I have some USP grade 95%+ alcohol.

I will use it.  It tastes like shit. 

I should try cleaning some up with activated charcoal.

I will give some of my Red Boys a soak

in the rot gut first.

Can we possibly get a "Dipole Cures Pastrami" thread? I bet that would be a good read over in lifestyles.

I used some dill seed last time. 

With a near dead LC,

the dill experiment was a bust.

 

Oh my, I have been curing all sorts of things.

It is fun and easy to do.

I never thought of posting in Lifesyles.

Cocktail onions are on the wish list.

A friend makes a great Gimlet with them.

He has worked up some good flavoring ideas too.

A vegetable cure makes crunchy sliced jalapeno pickles.

 

I need to eat some of my inventory,

but if a cheap, fat piece of beef comes along

I will make another pastrami.

I will post a thread for you.

I took the grow out of the dark cabinet yesterday and took these pics.

Burma 29Jun18.jpg

 

The LC is not progressing as well as the cakes.

Burma 29Jun18LC.jpg

 

I gave the LC jars a gentle swirl.  No noticeable mycelium ball.

The cakes have sweat on the glass.

I hope that is not a problem.

The Burma cakes are close to ready.

All of them have an uncolonized spot on the bottom

Burma 4Jul18 Cake.jpg

 

The LC is showing some action after the swirl.

Funny how that works.

Burma 4Jul18 LC.jpg

 

Instead of casing the cakes top and bottom with vermiculite,

I am thinking of using coco-coir instead.

If I soak/pasteurize to field capacity with water,

will that work just as well?

 

I have seen descriptions of using coir with verm for substrate,

Coir alone, I don't know.

I have seen descriptions of using coir alone for casing,

but I am not sure how results worked out for any of it.

I haven't played with coir too much, but it is used for casings all the time.  I bet it would be just fine.

Thanks SideStreet.  For me, casing used up most of the verm in the past.

PF cakes don't use that much verm.

I will look through Magic for the Masses.

Thanks

 

/****************************************************/

 

I am trying out making Shroom Tincture.

I have some 95% USP alcohol that qualifies as root gut.

I am trying out polishing the crap up with activated charcoal.

Activated Charcoal Pellets.jpg

 

Needed:

 

1c    Activated Charcoal

2      Glass Bottle, chemically resistant lid, 8oz

        Rot Gut, 95% ethanol, USP

 

I put the charcoal pellets into a jar. I poured rot gut to the top.

After the bubbling stopped, I topped it off.

I then soaked it for 2 days.

(Polishing should be done for a week or more.)

 

       Filtering funnel

       Cheap Coffee Filters

       Pair of scissors

 

I fitted some filter paper to a small aluminum funnel with some creases for flow.

(Fold paper over and over into a wedge, cut to fit funnel)

I placed the filter into another bottle.

I poured the charcoal contaminated alcohol through the filter

When the filtration slows a little, the pores in the paper will be clogged up to make for a good filter.

I pour the filtered alcohol back into the dirty.

Filter as before.

Now the filtrate will be rather particle free.

 

Combine:

 

12g  Red Boys

8oz  Glass Bottle, wide mouth

        Plastic film, heavy

1/2c Semi-Polished Rot Gut, 95% ethanol, USP

        Chemically inert 5/8" plastic rod, poking stick

 

I hope I get 3g worth of magic in a jigger of 95% tincture.

 

I will probably pour off the magic juice into a measuring cup,

then into a bottle.

I will add more alcohol to the shrooms as needed to make up for the missing 1/2 cup..

Squeeze the shrooms in the added alcohol.

Soak and squeeze a few times.

Pour off and squeeze out what I can into the measuring cup.

Confirm that I have a 1/2 a cup of tincture.

 

I am going to give it a go tomorrow.

 

1 jigger Tincture of Magic

2 cups   Orange Juice

              Crushed Mint Leaves

 

After downing that I will start off with a buzz,

and then, I hope, fun little ride.

 

I put the shrooms in whole into the jar.  I didn't want a major filtering job.

I poured 4 jiggers of

I didn't proof read my post.

The last 2 lines are edit leftovers I should have deleted.
