A few comments from the old guy and his shit...

 

Over the last 30 years I learned that cow shit stinks, turns muddy, and is hit and miss versus horse shit.

 

I don't use stall or contained area shit because it's loaded with urine and really slows things down.

Field cured, grass fed horse shit is where it's at and I don't have to mix verm or anything with it, just straight shit.

I toss the dried shit in an old pillow case and submerge it in a big pot on the stove and it does not stink up the house.

Nice fluffy substrate full of nutrition and I've seen 5-6 flushes on my trays with quick colonization with rhizo growth.

One of the biggest challenges for most people is getting good field cured horse shit so I understand why folks go for cow shit.

 

As far as grains go I am 20 years in with 50/50 WBS and Popcorn.

I like the large size of the popcorn kernels and so does the mycellium.

This 50/50 approach solves the clumping and difficulty of shaking after the PC and my WBS moisture content is always right due to the popcorn sucking up the moisture out of the WBS.

I load the popcorn in the jars first and then WBS on top and mix them right out of the PC.

 

Straight horse shit and no casing for me.

 

I've seen Unc's work and have used his casing method and man the canopy knocks the shit out of mine but I only got a couple of flushes before the contamination sets in so I find 5-6 flushes with a light canopy out produces hands down.

 

Good to see everyone getting creative and making improvements like we did back in the early days of 'topia.
Kudos to Unc for this casing tek and advancing the process!

 

Just throwing some shit out there for thought...

Thanks Roc that is some high praise.  Made my day.   

 

My cow manure is so old its barely manure any more.  I just add filler until it feels the way I want.   

 

Here is what it looks like when I am done.  I just add vermiculite and some potting soil till it feels right.

One tub done and then I used roasting pan that I used pasteurize the mix to do another sub because I didn't have another tub.

Those look great!!!  I was reading what you was saying.  Maybe evenly scrap, then mist.  But maybe dont let it pin until you have shit load knots.  Sometimes for me it be spotty I scrap that bad boy again and make do what you want.  But back when I did this all the time, I used upright freezer that didn't work as incubator I guess and it may have helped with humidity.  

 

Here is an old picture I pulled off google search. This one is already pinning but you can see the knot formation I will be shooting for.  But i dont have anything for incubator and I using my loft for storage of my two subs figures crossed.
