How tub 9 is shaping up.. definitely the runt of the litter.. this culture is known to be spotty. It’s the same one from last season.. some tubs were banging, some so-so like this one. I got the culture from a tiny piece of leading edge myc off a half colonized pf cake two years ago so there’s at least a couple sub strains in there, so I think that’s what’s going on. Probably have to take this tub 2 flushes but I’ll eventually get it out of the sub.
Prepped coir for 3 BK melmak tubs tonight.. going to post those in this thread
The culture was gifted to me by a friend so I’m going to do a little playing around with sub construction to see what it likes.. going to run one like I would a PE tub, one regular mixed with a 1” compressed top layer and the last one I’m going to do laymixed with a 1.5” compressed top layer
The same friend gave me a TP (thick penis) melmak culture and I’ve got 4 qts of that I just shook today so I’m excited for those as well
Still have 5 pec3 tubs coming up.. 2 of which just started pinning. :)
