Hillbillys on cornmeal cakes and mixed grains
Posted 10 January 2007 - 08:36 AM
this is the brand he used.
Also, he wanted to use up several misc ingredients, so he made mixed grain quarts and 1/2 pint cakes. the mix included wbs, rye, rye grass seed, cornmeal, brf, c-poo and c-poo tea, peanut shell flour, coffe rinds and coffee, distilled h20 and a pinch of gypsum. he had no clue what to expect.
he also tried a shot at re-using mycrotopia bags, cutting off the filter patch and using a plastic bottle cap rubber banded with poly-fil and a silicon port.
all jars colonized in 9-12 days in his cabinet (until his furnace broke) and then moved to a tit incubator.
the mixed grain jars did not fully colonize, so the healthy myc was combined with oven past c-poo (and a little peat) and left to recover for one week.
the cornmeal and mixed grain cakes were just about ready to birth to a fruiting chamber, which would be a manually fanned tub w/ perlite and dec.

Your skills are really coming along nicely.

not bad at all,
how'd the bags turn out ?
the bag worked like the quart jars,
it didn't fully colonize, but did get a good amount of solid myc from it
gonna re-use it again and see if it can go for a third round.
the cornmeal cakes out-performed the mixed grain cakes so far. there were four mixed cakes in the fc. two were lost to trich, and the other two barely fruited.
dunking now hopefully for more flushes

That tub may end up giving you a better 2nd flush, looks like there were some pins formin already. One thing with Hillbilly strain I noticed, it just kept flushing, no set flushes really. As long as its hydrated well and you keep it hydrated you can just keep picking the mature ones while others develope.
Those are great pics!

When I say that, by the way, I'm actually quoting you, Dial8!
In my original "newbie makes good" thread, you said the same thing and I've treated it as gospel ever since.

But, yeah, the only true way that we can change the mindset of those that are in opposition is to teach what we know and put the tool into as many hands as possible. It seems that a lot of people are only out for themselves. This hobby can never be treated that way because ignorance will reign.
