They sell big ol' planks of dried reishi down at the Chinese herbal stores in Chinatown.  is this a good source for Reishi?  Has anyone successfully cloned from dried tissue?

How much per pound?

 

Roomis, those are some nice looking bags and certainly some alien looking shrooms. 

 

Question about your logs, how do you keep them hydrated?

I read somewhere that someone used dried mushrooms to clone, I haven't tried to myself but cant hurt to try. Rieshi mycelium is very hardy and fast growing.

I kept them in a FC in the past. Room temperature is great. This batch I just kept them by a window with the bag top open. I used a spray bottle to mist the inside of the bag.

I harvested this batch of reishi today. I let the block dry a little bit and used a ginsue to trim the outer mycelial mat just enought not to cut into the sawdust. Trimming the mushrooms in the same way was next. Now for the tincture.......

I have asked many people if they would like a sip out of one of these jars. I have not had one taker on the offer. To tell the truth I would not try it either, just the looks of it can be scary. On the left are the mushrooms cut and the right is the mycelial mat from the sawdust blocks. I have covered the mushrooms with 100 proof vodka and let it set for three weeks, shaking once a day. It will set in the jars for three more weeks befor the tincture gets filtered. After six weeks the mushrooms will be filtered and put into a pot of water just covering the mushrooms. I simmer slowly for about two hours in a uncovered pot. That tea is filtered and mixed with the alcohol tincture. Then refrigerate for daily use. About a quarter of a shot glass twice a day seems to be enough.
This stuff is very bitter. I like to take a quarter shot of tincture mix it with green tea and cranberry juice. I have become found of this stuff, maybe cuz of the 100 proof lol or maybe becuse of the noticeable health benefits.

That looks a lot better than the stuff a friend of mine used to make.

 

He swore by this stuff, but it looked and smelled so bad I couldn't do it.

 

It was black and thick, like syrup. I don't know what he was doing, but your's looks quite edible, and if the smell is anything like cubes in alcohol, it's not that bad.

 

I found my infusion of cubes with 190 proof took almost a month to clear and be palatable.

 

Unfortunately it isn't as strong as I thought it would be.

 

I get mostly an alcohol buzz, but this is my first attempt.

Needles could you recommend a model # or name of a waring blender that you think is the best to make my own mason jar mixer.

This is the kind, it has a pinwheel style base and blade. This is the first one I found, you can shop for a better deal. I find them at Goodwill for cheep but their hard to find. PM me if you get one and I will help you with the assembly.....

Roomisigloomis,
I've missed your thread but want to say ,your work so far is amazing,keep at it man.
I wish you'd share your technique of mounting a blender blade set onto the mason jar lids like in your photo,this would be beneficial to many on this forum.

I think there is an earlier comment on this thread about the bullet blender blade / top assembly melting in the PC.
