Ok here we go. Sandman and Hyphaenation need help settling a score! So a friendly race to the finish it is!

It's on like donkey kong!Milk vs. LC   :ph34r:

Make a new thread and challenge me...

Since I'm representing hyphae I'll be following this tek https://mycotopia.ne...-inoculant-tek/ that is referenced in one of his teks ( https://mycotopia.ne...ing-super-inoc/ ) with a few (hopefully unimportant) changes.

For one the grains I have colonized are not popcorn, but WBS
For two they are not pints, but quarts

20190809_213138_noexif.jpg

These are 2 quart jars of MS Equadorian Cubensis that have been beat up and recovered multiple times. These were started from G2G on the 28th, and were fully colonized on the 4th.

I'll let sandman come in and line out his tek and what he is doing with the LC's and then after I make and knock my jars I'll post what I did with pictures.

I'll be making a single quart size WBS jar for the race.

I'll knock my quart jar with 5cc of LI? If that seems agreeable to everyone?

Any other points that need brought up that I missed?

Hah alright now were talking.

 

I will PC a quart jar 2/3 full of wheat tonight. 

 

Inoculate tomorrow at exactly 9pm Eastern time, under the oak tree. Use 10cc because that's what I do. Mark the jar with identifiable markings. Take pictures. Weigh the grain by taring an empty jar and lid or something.

Well so i got excited, had a couple hours right now so my jar is pressure cooking as we speak.

I don't have an oak tree, only oak brush!

9pm is 7pm here. Easy money.

Here's a quick rundown of how I make my grains!

Filled halfway

20190810_104840_noexif.jpg

Boiled 7-8 minutes

20190810_105528_noexif.jpg

Floaters out (mostly sunflower)

20190810_105911_noexif.jpg
20190810_105902_noexif.jpg

Strained and rinsed!

20190810_110255_noexif.jpg

Back in jar

20190810_110607_noexif.jpg

Ready for PC!

I'll post more pictures after PC Is finished! I'll mark the jar and take a pic with weight.

I know I've never made 1 jar at a time.. it will swell some in the PC but we'll see how it comes out. I had started making my jar before your response if I need to I'll make a new tonight to be ready for tomorrow

Should I make a new jar so I can weigh it before I hydrate it? Since i skim grains off it would be a rough estimate anyway.. So here's this.

The actual jar used.

20190810_104840_noexif.jpg

A similarly filled jar with the same grain

20190810_142418.jpg

All photos on scale are properly tared, so that's actual grain weight no jar.

After skimming I'd say around 250 grams.. but if we aren't using the same grain it's weird anyway.

You are going to do the test on different kinds of grain ? ....interesting

I know, it's not very scientific really. But I'm having fun anyway. Thinking I'll do some tests of my own soon just for fun, likely behind the scenes. But I'm gonna use an isolate LC to make a WBS jar, then use that jar as a LI to compete against the very same LC that made it. So it'll be the same iso, same grain, same cooking time and moisture content, can use the same weight of grain per jar, same temperature and so on so forth. Probably won't bother logging or photographing, mostly just because I love playing with mycelium and watching things grow.

Make sure you guys incubate at the same temperature at the very least, could make a big difference. I’ll be keeping an eye on this!

Ya know what? I think I'm gonna run a side by side comparison using the same iso and post it here. I can already foresee someone binging up genetics after it's all said and done.

Do it up! Genetics was my first concern mentioned where this post came from. I'd be interested to see your results as well! You gonna be able to inoc tomorrow at 9pm eastern also?

I forgot I had some Milo which is the major ingredient in most WBS, although yours kinda looks more millet heavy. So it should be pretty close on grain. I'll put 410 grams in there.

 

I will mark it with some sharpie. 

 

And yea It's a clone, GT. But the LC has been sitting room temp for over a month I hope it's still good lol.

unfortunately not, I don't have a jar of grain colonized ATM but I will noc one up tomorrow to use for a LI later. LC just finished today.
Also since I won't really be racing anyone but myself it shouldn't matter when they get nocd up. I have a pretty quick culture though so it shouldn't take that long

Damn this site has the worst picture handling I have ever seen. No matter what I do it will only make the pictures sideways. Rotate it properly? Sideways. Turn it upside down? Fuck you, sideways.

 

Anyway...man making a single jar was not the best idea I have had lol. Looking pretty wet but I'm still gonna send it.
