ok, i'm making this thread so that i can stick it in my signature. just an index to the various work i've done here over the years. :)

 

 

Faht's tek's index

Rolling cakes in vermiculite
*this tek is more of a novelty... it doesn't really add anything to the performance of the cake. I've found that it DOES promote pinning all around the cake but that the cake would have produced those mushies anyway except more likely at the edges of the cake where it meets up with the verm. DEC. it does remove/soak up the water after a dunk quite easily tho. ;)

A step by step makin of a mushroom chocolate
*couple changes to this tek... use a coffee grinder instead of a food processor and use the microwave to nuke your choc. 3 min. on high works much better than a double boiler.
http://archives.myco...html?1081706978

I use 1/3 cup of water in my pf jars instead of 1/4 cup. the trick is to get the water content to juuuuust before the mix starts getting gooey.. i also use 'arrowhead mills' brand brf.

Popcorn prep. - First, put your corn in the pc without your jar rack (the plate the pc comes with to keep the jars off the bottom of the pc.) and cover with at least three inches of water.
you can probably go a little less once you get the hang of how much the dry kernels will absorb. on average the kernel will expand 3 times it's size.
Now pc at 15 psi for 1 hour. after an hour, turn off the pc and left the pressure adjust back to zero... once the safety nob drops, you can unscrew the lid. be very careful.. the pc will still be very hot. don't let the steam get ya in the face.
Now pour the corn into a strainer. I rinse off the corn with hot water first. the kernels will have lots of starch on them.. if you rinse with cold water first the starch will coegulate making it a bitch to get off. rinsing is a very important part of the process... you want to get the kernels as free from starch as possible. once you've rinsed with hot water... rinse with cold. this will cool the kernels down making them easier to handle and also 'tighten' the kernel up making it not so mooshy.
once rinsed, i let the corn sit for a few minutes to drain. Next i lay down a piece of paper towel and lay the corn on top of that in a single kernel layer. then i place another piece of paper towel on top of the corn layer and roll my hands lightly over the corn.

It also makes for a good thread for me to bookmark, so I don't have to find your signature everytime I want to look up the isolation tek.

Summer drying - drying in the winter is easy cuz there is no or very little RH in the air. but summer sucks for drying... it's bitch to dry mushies nice and dry in order to grind them up for making choc.'s. but i found that if you put the mushies in a bag and stick them in the crisper in your fridge for a day (with the bag open) they will get about 10 % dryer. which is much easier to grinder up close to a powder. :)

fahtster,

What kind of air circulation/venting do you use in the greenhouses. Is it just from the cool mist, are there fans (if so, how many and how long do they run). You get the idea, what's the rest of the story?

thanks for all the info, the iso tek works great!!!

yep, it's just from the ultrasonic... i think it was two min. every two hours for two greenhouses on the same ultrasonic. it was quite some time ago and i don't have that setup anymore... too big for me. :) i guess i said i set it for 5 min. every two hours.. might need to play with it. i'd use bigger hoses and maybe some pvc piping for the main mist shoot. and bigger diameter hoses for the eight off-shoots going to each shelf. be sure to put syran wrap around each shelf entirely or the mist will just drop to the bottom of the greenhouse soaking your bottom shelves which isn't good. :) thanks for the props, glad it's working for ya... did you check out the cloning tek with those corn 1/2 pints?? works even better than the one drop thing. :)

oops...

Easy Ultra-sonic Spore Agitation
*this will break up the small clumps of spores that collect together into single spores, stretching the spore juice even further. this also helps in even germination throughout the innoc. point. **you can skip the bottle cap and foil part if you just fill the entire bottom up with distilled water so that it touches the water-line sensor... that works too. when i say 'suspend', i more mean 'agitate' to the point of declumping :)

Super Easy Cleaning
this is something that i just started doing... I think someone said it to me in passing and it may be here in the archives already but all you do is toss the freshly picked mushrooms into your drying device. Once they're dry, just put them into a large ziplock bag and seal the bag with some air still left in the bag. now just push and pull at the bag like mad. the mushies rub against each other knocking off the verm./casing layer of your choice. once you are satisfied that the mushies are clean, just knead the bag a bit so that the dry flakes fall to one corner of the bag. then just remove your clean mushies. surprisingly, most if not all the mushies stay intact. it acts like a rock tumbler basically. for best results, do this a few times. :) thanks for the idea whoever told it to me. sure cuts back on the cleaning time... what used to take hours, now only takes 15 min. ;)

I must add tho, this doesn't work very well for popcorn UNLESS you clean the 'stuck' kernals off the mushies before you put them in the drier. which i would recommend. at least for certain strains such as tex which for some reason are extremely adhered to their substrate and will definately take a few kernals with them when they are picked. :)
