Hmmm... I remember this thread!

 

Now you got me thinking.  I have all this course sawdust from oak and ash (cutting up old dead wood with the chainsaw).  Now if I take that and PC it, press out all the liquid and compress it into a puck, and then take 2 of these pucks as the "Bread" and use a colonized agar as the "Jelly" and make a sandwich....

 

That might be some kind of sandwich.

Yah somewhere buried is my first puck experiments in another thread where I do just that and sandwhich spawn in between two halves of a puck inside a yogurt container...it works real well.

Regarding woodlovers and woodproduct pucks, yes thats a go also. That worked with p.cyans the first time out. The pucks were a bit crumbly due to having lots of woodchips so I had to try and not handle them as much as possible. Thet did fruit same season...

When the weather breaks I'll get photographs of a mycelium eating a sheet of OSB particle board...........with vigor it is! Even those dense recycled paper "egg carton on steroids" packing blocks are very densely colonized..........wood pucks...oh my!

This is awesome tek!

 

Thank both Hyph and coorsmikey for exhumation of this fine topic.

 

I now have better things to do w/ pizza boxes than burn them since recycling won't take them (I won't use obviously oil/food enriched parts). Every scrap saved from a landfill is a savings for me and the land.

 

Once I get some nice clean wood loving edibles I'd like to adapt this tek to make compressed log plugs as I have 20 acres of untouched (except for the one hunter that has permission and probably a few other who don't) woods that has oodles of large dead fall hardwoods I'd love to turn over and assault w/ a cordless drill, stuff w/ plugs, and then replace.

Do it early spring when out hunting morels. :wub:

 

I have 5 qt. of rye berries just waiting for the 'noc and think a couple would be a perfect donor subjects for a test run.

 

Thank you again for the thread and the resurrection!
