So I'm gonna make a couple half-pint jars and use some Stella instead of water.

I've heard of this being discussed before, but a quick search didn't turn up any results.

Any thoughts? This should be fun....Stella Shrooms

I used beer in my agar but never in my jars. I always wanted to try a beer lc also. Just a matter of getting the nutes just right.

I wonder how a beer soak for grains would do too?????

If you do try it, I'm excited to see the results. I never had any trouble using it in my agar.

Before this I boiled striaght samuel adams boston lager, maybe i was too impatient because after two weeks of nothing I tossed em'

Beer, eh? Interesting. One could ponder that beer in agar would be okay cause you pour the agar and would release the alky fumes... Would the same hold true for substrates/spawn? Just a thought. From someone who doesn't know squat on the subject.
