I made a modification to the extraction.

I added some citric acid to the jar, ~1/4t

The cranberry second extract made me wonder

if citric acid might do the same thing in the hooch.

 

So I added some to batch and gave it a day.

The extract came 3T short of 1/2c.

So I added some more polished everclear and citric acid.

Gave it a squish and a swirl, a few times.

Poured through filter, it was full of spores.

Squeezed the solids with a lemon squeezer.

 

I have 4 fl. oz. of smelly, light yellow colored Magic tincture

Hopefully 3g eqv / jigger.

Citric acid is soluble in ethanol

See CRC organics listing

It should be acidic in everclear too, speculation.

The jars appear to be colonized over.

One of the LC jars has a nice blob of mycelium in it.  I hope the pic is OK.

A better shot?

2 of the jars are no good.  Too bad, I thought I had 10 good ones.

The other LC jar seems to be slow, maybe weak?

I will try to get the 8 good jars into fruiting chambers today.

Hi there Dipole

 

 sending good vibes your way and I look forward to see your fruits and don`t throw out those cake bury them in your garden in a shady place and keep it moist you might get something still, your lc also look`s a little on the strong side, if there is too much food you won`t see as much growth as the myc dose not have to search for the food and will stay small, try making it weaker next time and you will see the myc better and also if there is any tint/color of contam on the white myc, I have also found that 

irritated honey does not work as well as the raw kind.

 

Regards, Da-1

I was thinking of putting the 2 cakes under a layer of avocado leaf litter that has accumulated in a pit I would like to turn into a mushroom bed.  It is well shaded.  I will water it tonight and plant it tomorrow.

 

The alcohol extraction was not very successful.

I think I was feeling the alcohol more than the shrooms.

I must not be making it strong enough.

 

Maybe I should make some more LC.  I have some 1/2 cup jars.

 

I put the cakes into the chamber.

Hiya Dipole

 

That sounds like a plan for those cakes just make sure the soil stays damp and not too wet or the myc won`t breath, I have never done mu extractions but the blue juice with ice looks promising just it does not take all the good stuff out but I would like to try this myself soon, I don`t drink alcohol so I stay away from tek`s that have traces of it in the final product but that`s just me, with your lc try using half the amount of honey you used before, when the myc eats the sugars of the honey the lc should come clear, sending good vibes with your birthed cakes, may I ask how did you dunk and roll? or did you just place verm on top and the bottom? I also can`t make out is that garden stones or perlite at the bottom of your tub? I guess you took that pic just after birthing? the walls look a little dry so keep an eye on that and if it don`t get droplets mist a few times a day to keep humidity up, other then that looking awesome and I can`t wait to see the fruits of your labour.

I put a layer of perlite in the tubs. I poured a cup of water in and sprinkled with salt.

Polyfill in the vents.

I cased with vermiculite.  I have been too lazy to get and try coir.

You are correct, I took the picture just before closing up the freshly prepared chamber.

 

The walls are fogged over this morning.

The venting has worked well in the past for 4 cakes.

5 cakes have always ended up losing a cake to contams.

So I worry that my chamber might be a little tight for 4 cakes.

 

The outdoor cakes are on dry-ish soil covered with wet leaves.

I will water near by to get the area moist.

The days have been very warm.

Great cannabis growing weather.

Good day to work on that tan too.

Looking good man. Love the jar cake grows.

Wonder if the extraction worked but maybe the fruits of that cake were not so strong ?
MAybe just my opinion but BRF cakes can be a bit hit or miss with potency

I wonder if:

 

1) I am not sensitive to psilocybin.

2) My mushrooms lack potency.

3) Adding a small amount of citric acid to the alcohol precipitated the psilocybin.

4) I should follow a proven TEK to the letter.

The cakes are busting a move.

I might be making spore prints in a couple of days.

The mushies seem a little slow considering the warm days.

Moving along nicely though.

I think I will get prints started tomorrow.

The first flush is probably tapped out.

I am trying to get prints off the first 2 caps.

I have them under a bowl...

Hiya Dipole 

 

nice little flush, I would recommend a good 24 hour soak in a closed container in the fridge and after that a small scratch with a sterilized fork and roll those cakes in some baked and cooled verm, you can try that with a few to test my theory and please try roll the side of the cakes also and try not to be too ruff with the fork, as for your printing looking good a bigger piece of foil that can fold is the way I like to do mine and fold in the edges around the sides and top,

 

good luck with round 2 and sending good vibes.

Thanks for the recommendations.  I will give the cakes a scratch and a roll.

I have used the jet setting on my kitchen faucet to beat up the myc a little instead of scratching.

 

The cakes have been cleaned off and are dunking in their glass jars.

I will soak for 24 hours.

 

The spores have not dropped for my print yet.  I must have picked too soon.

Hi again bud

 

good luck on round 2, I use to let my caps sit over night when printing and by the next morning there was a print,

 

I have heard about placing a drop of water over the cap but I personally have not done this method, here is some really good info https://mycotopia.ne...eptic-printing/

 

I have also never grown Bruma but I am sure its the same as all cubes

Have you ever caps not drop spores?  I had my caps out for 3 nights. Nothing.

I have not had that happen before.  If has been like you said.

Put the caps out.  The next day, there are spores on the foil.

 

I must have not dried the cakes off well enough.

I lost a cake to cobweb.

I took the pics before the cobweb showed up.

Some cakes are sprouting new mushies.
