Was kinda planning to let the casing take care of the hydration part..
The cube cakes seemed pretty solid when birthed...The Pan cakes will proly b more fragile -when i cut em in half we'll know...

10 days from birthing ...the Tapalpas are slowly producing new pins, although nothing 2 rave about yet...
The peruvians have yet to pop,,,but i think 10 days is about normal for cake pinning...

Ok just for fun -i wanted to see what happens when a layer of nutritional yeast is peppered on to the growing mycelium of this peruvian peat cake..
Will the myc consume it b4 contams take hold...And if the myc does consume it,, will it increase the yield....?

intriguing questions all.
can't recall any similar experiments.
off-hand i'd guess that
a small amount finely powdered
misted/dampened a bit
so not to dry the mycellia
and well dispersed
should easily be gobbled up by the mycellia
in short order.
in theory.
now in the real world
i guess you're trying it and we'll see.
:cool:

my biggest concern would be that
n.yeast is pretty sticky

Last experiment - The shakable cake ....about 3 halfpints of peat n wheat in a qt jar ...knocked up with a myc syringe 4 days ago and shaken....
Although not as shakable as grains -it still allowed for a fairly good distribution of this Pan Viet mycelium...crazy huh....happy Easter.....

No berries here panic...just wheat flour/peat...The Qt jar of cake is just another possible way of generating spawn for a flatcake or even to bulk ,
There's no "active" filter ,no verm barrier or grains to soak...Just the bare essentials for rapid colonization...
So far - 19 jars of various species/strains all doing well...More pix coming..

Here's the Qt cake B4 and after shaking ...then birthed into a perforated ziplock ,soon to be cased with a microbially active blend..[this is pan viet]
The jar was easy to brake up with just a couple o slaps...

Here's the m. spore pan goliath n' pan viet halfpints at 16 days ...
Will birth these as half cakes tomorrow and case...
These are made with the same formula as the peruvians - Peatmoss,wheatflour n lime...

Now back to the Peruvian peat cakes...In the first pic ,all but one of the fruit are growing from the sprawling mat of mycelium away from the cake.
The yellow coloring is the yeast that was sprinkled on a few days ago.
The yeast is slowly being absorbed where very thinly applied ,no sighn of contam yet...
The other peruvian cake has a few nice pins, but fruiting overall is just fair imo.
I think that using BRF would proly be a more productive choice for a flour substrate ...but thats my next experiment ..yep...

It's been a week since the nutritional yeast was sprinkled on this peruvian cake ...absorbtion has been slow [the yellow specks on the mycelium] ..
maybe its a lil too rich in nutes ...no sighns of mold yet ...maybe will effect the second flush...
The spores from this grow will seed the next project with brown rice flour for comparison but using no verm ,no peat, no coir...he..hee..just a cheap renewable resource...shredded hardwood mulch...

Yeah -after using coir and peat for awhile now ,i think i had better results with plain ole mulch...Never tried it with cakes though ...just cooked up a batch today....
