I have had some good luck with pre made, out of the box substrates and spawns ready to go. Today I'm using the 1lb blocks i got from Ancient Path that are a mix of straw, dung and grain. Pasteurized and ready to go in bags. I have used some rye berry bags from another Amazon vendor as well and its pretty much the same thing. Sterile and ready to go.
The spores im using today are B+ i got from lilshop. I know more affordable methods exist, but for me with work, family and life the way it is, I have zero time to deal with pressure cookers and waiting for things to cool or be ideal for mycology. This is all part of my process I use for micro dose in dealing with my PTS and just wanted to share.
Its the same as all other methods at this point when it comes to making sure things are wiped down with alcohol and heating the needle to reduce chances of contamination. I wipe down the counter top with bleach as well.
Im going with B+ today.
Once its done I write down the date and strain so I can keep track of it in my incubator. Because this batch does not have a healing port, I just inoculate in the front of the bag and put scotch tape over the hole.
I add the bags to my incubator. I currently have two other strains rolling with about 8 or 10 days between inoculations.
My incubator is a tub floating in a smaller tub kept warm with a fish tank heater.
Currently im using the bags to fruit in and try for three flushes. I will post some photos down the road of the end result and how I grind things up into medicine.
