Did a little experiment recently. I have a few jars of colonised rye grain and I sprnkled half a jar on on a spontaneous concoction. Thought I'd share as I had a good outcome.
Soaked whole brown rice grains overnight. Brought to the boil. Put straight in a seive to drain.
Threw this and a few handfuls of malted grain (crystal malt) into a filtered growbag. I brew beer from grain and had some left over.
PC'd 90 mins in a mushroom growbag.
Cooled & sprinkled 1/2 a jar of colonised grain on top. Gave it a shake.
Basically plonked it on a shelf and forgot about it.
3 weeks later noticed it had massively fruited. Brown rice & malt seem to work very well, and have a higher yield than I usually get.
They are very good shrooms too. 25g wet yesterday and I had a very relaxing afternoon watching nature documentaries....with extra visuals and fractal landscapes. Nothing intense, just relaxed, euphoric and visuals. I did get heavily into the nature documentaries though LOL.
I think I was just in a good chilled state of mind as 25g hardly touches the sides usually. Unless they were just a very good batch. They were all good specimens, No mutes or aborts.
Needless to say, I'm trying the same method again. Rice soaking tonight.
