I'm not trying to out do anybody's math or explanations because basically I have copied everything Asura does except succeed... but what I have done with other species (because me and pans just have a weird relationship) is I just weigh my dry ingredients in grams and then double that number in ml or on the scale with my planned LC amount knocked off. It makes scaling the recipe super easy and would give you 66.66% water. It's just dumb kid math, but I have had much better success with literally every other species so take that for what you want. If you lose a smidge to the PC you're going to find up close to that 65%

You break it all up and put it in a tray to recover. Cover it. Poke a few holes for GE. Should be ready in 5 days. Then case and fruit.

Well I need the vibes because everything I have is either experimental, a species I've never tried (got some gym purp on grain) and these pans I trayed today. I went real straightforward, broke it down still in the bag, dumped it in a shoebox tote, leveled it out, put the lid on and put it in the incubator that usually has plates in it set to 74 which should hardly require any active heating. I'm going to try really hard not to look for 5 days. 3 days...I'll be screwing with them tomorrow I'm sure. This culture came off a pretty distinct sector on the germ plate. I hope it's a fruiting culture!

The culture 2 days after breaking down into tray. It was actually a culture from a germ plate that just sat around for weeks. There was one little section that was determined to outcompete a crowded plate and looked wisely to me. Gonna try to have this chamber done today so it’s timed by the time it’s time to load. The light needed moving and I needed more space anyway...

Hey, JR, don't feel bad, just try and identify errors and correct your procedures. I have been at this awhile after acing cubes. I believe selection from the spore germination plate is also critical.
I have been having problems with Estero as well. Can the experts please look at the attached picture taken October 13 of first transfers from four different spore germination plates.
Plates 1 and 4 were inoculated September 30 (so 14 days old).
Plate 2 was inoculated September 25 and plate 3 on October 2.
These plates are much older than what I usually use but their appearance was strange.
Do these plates all show signs of tomatose or contamination? Did I cut out the incorrect transfers. Or, is this how Estero mycelium should look?

i noticed that my estero print puts out crazy looking mycelium. you have to isolate real fast the 2nd you get good looking growth. if not it becomes real mess.

I've only done that when I was testing out methods to get rid of overlay. It didn't
seem to hurt the tray bc the overlay came back with a vengeance when I
put the tray back in fruiting.

I've never found anything that helps. Haven't had it in a long time, though. I think once it starts there's no going back. Hope someone can prove this wrong one day, but that's the way it seems to be.
I've always gone right from casing to fruiting but I think I might try what you describe and wait a day or so. Jake and Blue Helix both do it. Want to see if this affects my pinsets.

Basically while I was sick everything I did crapped out so I’m starting over. Suddenly agar doesn’t feel like the long way to do things when there’s a fridge of plates!

About 8 days and I know it's not going to work.
