Here is my method for generating 3 and 5 lb hardwood substrate blocks.
Supplies:
main.php.jpg
Hardwood Animal Bedding
wood chips.gif
Alder woodchips
powder_th.jpg
gypsum
wheat_bran02 tn.jpg
Wheat Bran
Procedure:
soak.jpg
Soak 2 cups of wood chips in water overnight.
Next day.

Add 10 cups of animal bedding to large mixing bowl
bran.jpg
Add 1 cup of wheat bran

Add 1 cup of gypsum
Mix these well and then add 700-750 ml of Water.
This is the perfect water level
so that no excess drains into the bottom of the spawn bag after setting for awhile.
This makes exactly 3 lbs everytime.

Load your favorite spawn bag

Tape the spawn bag closed with micropore tape, fold it back on itself to cover the tyvek filter patch and keep it down with 2 more pieces of tape.
Pressure sterilize for 60-90 minutes at 15 psi. Allow to cool to room temperature before removing and sealing with an impulse sealer.
To inoculate the bags you can use 2-3 cc's of culture or spawn a quart rye jar to them. In the following pics, I spawned 1 quart rye jar of Maitake to (2) 5 lb bags of hardwood substrate.

2 Maitake and 3 Shiitake incubating.

No problem, glad to help. If anyone puts this to use, I'll interested in trading some gourmet mushroom spores with ya.
