Thanks guys. Hope things will turn out good.

Jars are looking great so far, most of them around 25-30% with most of the bottoms full of mycelium and some on the sides as you can see - shook four up yesterday and just now these four are ready to get gently beaten on a bike tire. Last three will probably be ready tonight or tomorrow morning.

I figured just shake them all at the appropriate time in stead of all at once - which sometimes messes things up if you are too early - and keep them in the fridge when they are done until spawning.

Getting there.. About a week after the shake, some jars are almost done, others still need a couple of days to a week.

I just pasteurized the coco, vermiculite + gypsum substrate in two filter bags, was aiming for about seven liters of substrate, looked about right when mixing in a bucket, but compressed in those bags it looks like less. Will probably work out.

Also, found out I need quite some water for that mix, had underestimated that! Had probably forgotten to count in hydrating the coco coir.. roughly 1.8 liters went in there to get up to field capacity, with 3.5 liters coco, 3.5 liters vermiculite and a big scoop of gypsum.

Now cooling down in my recently DIY grain cool down basket, works for substrate bags as well.

Wow, for a 50/50 coir/verm mix I boil a gallon + 1 cup of water(with gypsum stirred in), then I dump that in the bucket with all the other shit, let it steam for 30 seconds, then seal the lid and shake it until it starts to burn my hands(sometimes, if I don't let enough steam out before sealing it swells up and the lid blows off), then I wrap a thick blanket/sleeping bag insulation around it, covering the whole thing.

 

I let that sit for a couple hours, then I shake it again, then I open it, checking the moisture with a gloved hand(still hot as hell). It's usually really close to field cap or slightly on the dry side, so I'll add a cup or so to get so that when I squeeze a big handful as hard as I can, I get maybe a drop or two to drip. If I need to I can just add a little bit of water when I go to spawn,

 

I measure and mix my sub/spawn out for my tubs in a 2 gallon ziplock bag. I measure the sub and put it in a bag, then if it's not perfectly field cap, I add a tiny bit of water and mix it around in the bag. When it's perfect, I add the spawn. I do grain in pint jars, about a little over 1/2 full, so it ends up being 3 pint jars full of sub to 2 half full jars of spawn, for a 3:~1 sub/spawn ratio.

I see the link doesn't work anymore for non-members. It's also on shroomery, google "Proper Pasteurization of Substrates" and you'll find it.

Found out today while working on my clones that some of my recently poured agar went wrong, so ended up with only seven dishes out of eleven made.

For the clones - almost half of them stalled, due to wrong samples and agar mix in some dishes (blubber). So, left with four dishes out of eight made, with three cloned mushrooms left of the four sampled, I put them to some new dishes. Hope it works out! Saved most of the originals to grow out and eventually put into some grains.

I think its ready to gro! Had some big chunks of substrate sprinkled on top so that's what you see uncolonized.

Will take a better picture at pinning stage. Exciting!

Had planned to remove the foil earlier tonight but a bad day made me forget about it, made my night a lot better to see it is doing good. It is turning day again just now, has been a while..

Leaving home for the weekend, I figure it's a good as time as any to leave it alone for a while.

Just a little update after coming back home. Air in FC was a bit stale, so going have to give it all some fresh air now I'm back, have to do that manually. Sub was nice and moist, maybe getting a bit too moist without much fae, got back in time.

Colonization is basically 100% now, I might see some knotting going on. Month after inoculation.

I see more and more defined mycelium where once was only fluff. Taking shape, waiting.. possibly still a week before fruiting, seeing it has only been in fruiting conditions for a week.

It's going to grow some weird boners too I see! Some real wide pins in there and some blob like things.. expecting this whole first flush to be weird, just like my first flushes on my last grows.

My burma iso produces tons of blobs, some are half below the surface and grow like stones, they go like an inch deep. I harvested some but it tears the sub up.

I saw a PE like pin that is half dug into the substrate, just deciding to grow below the surface.. odd stuff man!

Blobs typically indicate a contaminate, verticillum or mycogone. Not really a good thing if you're not growing PE.

These are not vert blobs though I've never seen mycogone. These are like solid mushroom flesh, the same color as the stipes of the fruits. Some lumps actually turn into fruits, there's tons of normal fruits too, I get at least 3-4 great flushes from them, I don't think it is from a contaminant, there is some lumps in the pic-IMG_20190319_195833.jpg
