Having hydrated way too much cracked corn I figured this was a good opportunity to use it. This is also why I'm using pint jars, 26 of them so yeah I hydrated way too much.
First a little history of PESH. From what I understand, Cubes don't grow wild in Hawaii.
But there was a vendor that did business out of that state "Pacifica Exotica Spora", and this was their house strain. Hence PESH.
These jars were just inoculate Sunday afternoon and it is now Thursday morning so the spores germinated fast. I'm still not seeing any growth in the AT or PE6 that were inoculated at the same time.
Next, I would like to talk about cracked corn. IMHO it only gets a bad reputation from people that don't know how to prepare it. I hear shit like "Stay away from WBS with cracked corn".:bs:
All you have to do is soak it for 24hours, then drain. Now here is the secret :eusa_shhh as told to me by an experienced oyster and Cube grower. It has to be rinsed very well. Rinsed may not even be a strong enough work, "washed" may be better. I toss the CC into a bucket and stir it up. It will turn white, this is from the starch. Drain and repeat the wash over and over until the water remains clear. Then load and PC. Now asap after PCing shake the jars. You don't want any clumping. If you end up with it all stuck together in the bottom of the jar then you didn't rinse (wash) it good enough.
Advantages of CC
Its cheap. I can get a 50# bag for only $13.00.
Many inoculation points; almost as many as with WBS.
And now for a little myc porn.
