hey there... this is just another bin of Hillbilly's that I'm doing. it's the same sub-strain as the last bin I did but with one difference, I used medium grade verm in the cake recipe instead of fine grade. Now I think that the end weights will be very close to each other, but I think that this bins fruits are forming in a more even manner. where the other bin that I did has more fruits, this bin has less fruits but larger ones, which is more towards the morphology of the original clone specimen. This bin probably has a few more days left on it but I thought i'd show it anyhow... heres the bin...

this is the bin from before that has the fine grade verm in it...

this is the link that that pic is from.... http://mycotopia.net...ead.php?t=19167

if you look at that entire thread, you can see how unevenly the bin is forming, I believe this is due to the fine verm making the cakes denser which makes water movement throughout the cake more difficult in certain places which makes growth uneven. This is all just what I've come to in my experience but this has also been seen with other strains that I've done in the past as well, those being, PE and PF redspores. :) any additional input is welcome as always.

I will update the progress of the 'new' bin as it grows... like I said, it's not really done yet, I think that it will look a lot fuller than that first bin I did when all is said and done. :)

Good observations.

Did you notice any difference in colonization? IME there isn't one...

Personally I prefer handling medium grade verm over fine. Mebbe there's no difference but it feels like less of a mess-maker to me.

yeah, I don't notice any colonizing differences, if anything, it starts off a bit faster than fine verm but then slows towards the end finishing up just about the same time. :)

just the normal brf... 2/3 cup water 1.5 cup medium grade verm 1/2 cup brf. that gets me about 2.75 1/2 pints worth.

which is probably more towards the early pf recipe now that I think about it. but basically you want the mix just wet enough before it gets gooey. of course it varies a little too.. I don' t use exactly the measurement on the cup.. I mound over too.. but this is the most important...

you want the mix just wet enough before it gets gooey


I'd suggest dunking or fractionally adding water to your casing layers the first couple days... the cakes need to be properly hydrated. the mix before birth isn't as important as the post birth hydration. :)

I think i'm going to do a complete writeup of how I make my tubs from start to finish, complete with pics and all... But it's really a long hard process to do that, so i'll need to find the ambition first.

yes, I DEC. :)
