I never thought I would be here, but my dream is finally a reality. No more oven tek or SAB for me. Mush Luv for all the likes and support. It’s time to give the room a proper cleaning tomorrow. I’ll get to work tomorrow or Thursday.

Ok, now I’m finished after wiring up my switch and plug today. I only had the plug hooked up yesterday. I’m not an electrician, but I can follow a wiring diagram. If I could recommend one thing, it would be to shorten the blower motor wires to a safe length that you need instead of leaving the excess wires and stuffing them in the housing. I thought my blower motor was a goner after one of the screws to the fan wire housing plate frayed one of the excess wires when I screwed the plate down. It produced a spark when I applied power. I won’t lie, my heart sank for a moment thinking that my brand new fan was fried. I found the problem thankfully and shortened the wires to a safe length. I capped them off and finished up with electrical tape. I was happy with the direct plug connection, but the switch is certainly convenient.2267d040a92642518911367779dec267.jpg

My first official lab day. I’m working on agar this morning. I’ll be transferring the B+, and GT tomorrow after my cups have cooled. I will also be inoculating a jar of grain with a wedge of the Albino/Leucistic strain.

That was an easy and fun lab day. All of the work I put into the flow-hood has payed off. Pouring agar was actually not a task for the first time ever. I think I’ll pour slants with a piece of wood for long term storage tomorrow.0efc1576fa630abfc6926a73e05996e4.jpg

The 9 o-clock Albino culture with Tammy on it went to the garden to work its wonders. I’ve got work to get to with a year old Lion’s mane culture from the fridge that I put to grain and colonized . With cold weather coming ,I’m planning to do an outside lions mane bucket grow. I might do some g2g transfers and noc up some sawdust bags for indoors as well. The Albino/Leucistic agar transfer is running nicely. I have some South African Transkei under the foil looking pretty as well.a3ac18fd156dd3f4f08bfc3af99ab440.jpg

After helping a friend out, they gifted me unpasteurized raw honey from their hive. I think I will attempt a blue honey experiment in a smaller mason jar layered with ground up B+.170bdb3237c2f59838d23717ce94f03e.jpg

I took the lid off of the jar and placed it in the microwave for 30 seconds to slightly heat the honey when I placed it in the jar. I took my remaining B+ (I’ll name it Bee Positive Honey) (1.5) and layered it with the honey with a final mix at the end. I will let it sit 4-12 months and see if I can microdose with it. c362c96f7e1cff0818a64b8449b4df2d.jpg

2g of my “Mako” GT partially ground up and placed in a tea bag with lemon Juice inside a beaker (lemon tek basically). I put the beaker in my mini fridge freezer for a few hours and squeezed the lemon juice out of the tea bag into the beaker. I poured the contents of the beaker into the dropper bottle and capped it. I put the dropper bottle into the freezer again for storage. I cut another lemon and repeated the process with the squeezed tea bag mush in the beaker. I’ll let them sit for a week and get back to you guys with test results. I’m not certain of the shelf life, but we shall see. I do know that IME lemon tek usually amplifies my dose. Fuck around a bit and find out -Citizen Scientist

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t expecting blue Lemon juice this morning. Did I do a Stamets blue juice extraction with the lemon juice in the freezer, or was it the citric acid? I must know more. I took 1ML in hot tea and it’s certainly noticeable and not a micro dose.bb3abbbe283576b7068c41a6b8096ad2.jpg

It turned a much darker blue. Blue Lemon Tek is what I will call it for now. I took another 1ML in my tea again today. Also, I thought Stamets specifically said the Blue juice could only be done with fresh mushrooms and not dry ones. I’m a little confused.
