Ha! Good stuff right there Mikey!
I'm kinda new to this whole thing so I read all the way through from page one, wondering the whole time who resurrected this thread and why. Lol.

I might have to give this a try...... :)

Yeah I wanted to bring this back up and restore the pics and links. It is one of my favorites from Hyph and I have been searching for it for a while to link to others asking questions. I'm stoked to have found it again. I am going to pin it for convenience so I don't have search for it to work on it. Then I will give a proper home.

Good work.  Dang, I thought it was in the vaults already--definitely should be.

Yah I think it was closed for further comment as it was archived. No big deal. Thanks again.

I found it lost in purgatory between the open forums and the vaults as you may remember the Meat Locker.

You suppose I could use crabgrass straw for this? I have a bunch of dry crabgrass which could possibly be good to use for this.

Try a test batch by pasturizing it at 155f for two hours then draining it and letting it cool. Then inoculate it with some mycelium and see what kind of growth you get. Based on those findings you can see how to proceed.

sorry, didn't see your reply so I did it, lol. Used some eggcarton+corrugated cardboard and some coir/verm and some of the crabgrass straw. Then I added some LC to it. made 4 pucks and 5 clone balls. Lets see how it does ;)

Good save, Mikey! Thanks for being on the ball my brother! That, and making the effort to fix it once you found it. It benefits us all, and thank you :)

I love this thread, it is an epic. Thank you, Hypha. All the research and work you put in here, as well as the time and effort to write it all up to share it with us. If you think about it, there are phenomenal amount of hours invested in this single thread. I'm glad to see it where it can help and teach some new folks.

So is it (this thread), in the Archives now? (it very much should be, if not)

Feel free to post your results if you like, or wherever you like of course...

How did you "add LC" to the pucks? In the whole mix or squirted on after they were made?

Hope the myc likes your mix. Good luck.

It would be rad to see woodlovers fruiting from a puck. I dig the simplicity of this. Once you have a colonized puck, you could fruit it directly or plant the puck as spawn in a tub. I've never seen woodlovers fruiting from a cake or puck. This looks promising, keep up the good work! :D

Placed the words in my mouth, the idea in my head, and hyphaenation's puck tek into the land of lignin......assuming hyphae hasn't already done it..........there's no way we can let this rest without providing the master with shots of a fruited wood puck!

This is the thread that got me started on egg carton, and eventually growing cyans. 

 

Not to mention all kinds of other excitement...

 

Good to see it resurrected. 

 

Thank you, Hyphaenation. (and Mikey)

(it very much should be, if not)

This topic was on the way to the archives and I pulled it out here to give it life again, also as a reminder to restore it. Any of you that know Hyph knows that he has contributed a lot of good info. Which means for me, chasing down a number of other threads that also have broken links to restore this topic alone. For those of you that don't know Hyph, just look at his post count to get an idea of his contributions. It is much like a giant jigsaw puzzle looking for all the pieces to put together for just this one topic. Links to other great threads that Hyph has posted that also need fixing due to the upgrades and migrations we've been through. It's been a larger project than I anticipated, but I am happy to see others appreciate it as much as I do. @hyphaenation if you still have your photos saved somewhere, please let me know!

Cool, nice to see this TEK getting back in the spotlight.

 

Seems like it would be a good method to incorporate soil-block presses into for mass-production of the pucks; the smallest size would act as the spawn for each larger size for a Puck-to-Puck (or P2P) expansion.

 

Something like this:

So we can do this, but with fungi:

The images above came from http://www.leevalley...2,47236&p=69004but there are many DIY designs or other retail versions that are larger posted online as well.

 

I didn't review the entire thread so my apologies if this was mentioned previously.

Ovoid ate a sheet of particle board and that really dense packing material made from recycled paper.........not to mention real logs. Surely the Puck Tek made with woodlover slurry, if I remember this correctly, has a chance.  :cool:
