8 widemouth quart jars half filled with simmered hard winter wheat berries, sterelized in the pc for 60 minutes
Innoculated with g2g from hawaiian multispore solution
Straw was cut and no-heat bleach + lime pasturized (thanks hippie3!)
Mixed in an 11" wide foodsaver tube (makes for about 8" diamter logs)
Colonized in 4 days, pins 3 days after, 3 more days before birth to let em grow a bit.

log is 2ft long

Use ½ cup of hydrated lime
per 14-16 gallons of water.
Be sure to stir the lime into the water very well.
If you’re making a larger or smaller batch, adjust the lime accordingly.
This will give the water a ph of 12-13

bleach pasturization =
1 cup bleach per 10 gallons of water
submerge straw 4-12 hours.
drain well.
inoculate.
just that simple.

yes, but compost has been self-pasturized as it decays/processes
so it's not needed. the richness of compost, relative to straw, in
organics would make this bleach/lime less effective, one might need
to use repeated dunks in fresh solution to get it right.

So, how about some new pics?
Leaving the wrapping on the log for so long definately makes the fruits mishapen.

i belive what you are seeing is a bruised fruit, the biggest pin before birthing was a bit bruised, now looks like it may abort.
