Using Horse Grain/Feed
Posted 21 April 2005 - 11:47 AM
So to prepare, I soaked it for 48 hrs doing hot water changes twice. I would rinse it while changing the water too. Then I just rinsed it well and drained it well. I mixed in a couple handfuls of verm to get any extra water.
I loaded it into jars and noc'd em up. They each got about 2cc of multi-spore. The quarts are ks and the pints are pfc. I made a note to self not to fill my jars so full.
These pix are at 14 days. The pfc's were sitting room temp while the others were in incubator. The pfc's are now in the incubator too. So I still have a lot of this left and I think I'm going to try it again. I also want to try store bought so I can see exactly whats in it as far as grain types etc. Well I'll keep this updated as far as what happens with them. They are going to be spawned to poo/straw and I may make a straw log to see what happens. Thanks for reading this!

so i've seen plenty of horsefeed.
from what i remember
i would think it's kinda similar
to using bird seed,
looks good there
a pity you can't shake those

The KS will probably need another week before being finished. But they are in quarts and moving pretty quick too. They will also be spawned to manure.
Well in thinking, I take that back, I'll spawn 1 jar of each strain to manure and then straight case the other 2 jars. That way we can see the difference in fruiting.
I'm going to be making some more of these up this weekend. I like the pints better because they go so fast.

The ks and pfc seem to really like it too!
I wonder if molasses would work well for liquid culture?
Sweet Sorghum is also known as Sorghum Molasses...
mmm...might try that sometime.
Keep up the good work my friend.

Sleepwalker, Usually, during hunting season they sell it as deer feed for hunters. But anywhere they sell horse feed or animal feeds you'll find it probably. Farm type stores. These are usually privately owned businesses. If you know of an area where people have horses they have to get their feed from somewhere. Yellow Pages are a great starting point. Most of these types of feed are mixed differently. So I can't say for sure how all would perform.
Hippie may know of some more common places to find this type of sweet feed.

The two pint jars of PFC have been birthed. One was spawned to manure, the other just cased. The 2 quarts of KS are just about done. I may spawn them together to manure. I can say that it works really nice. I also shot another quart jar with some Ecuador multi spore. In 8 days it is at about 70%. I'm going to use some more to see if most strains I have like it. I'm going to start a post in Growlogs and pictures to show the casings and fruits. Thanks for reading!

The first 2 pix are of the pint that was straight cased.
The last 2 pix are of the spaen run on the manure. I hope it fruits well.
Both casings went straight to the fruiting chamber. I will update as soon as I see pins. Lets hope its not 2 weeks from now!
