Mushrooms - Pf Tek Supply list, Questions, Other Teks
Feel free to add anything I missed or you do differently or ask questions!!
If you already grow mushrooms please sub to this to help others if they ask questions I know theres alot of you out there ANC, Heatlessbbq, dankiller, 420 God, Research Kitty, Sonar, Choempi, Canndo ...and many many more
Also if you have questions you can ask them here
not everything is on first page... some things are deeper in the thread.. read first few pages at least..
and follow links for much more indepth look at each subject.. I had no need to copy n paste from other sites..
half pint tapered jars
organic brown rice flour (coffe grinder if you make your own from rice)
distilled water (I just use plain tap normally but distilled is prefered)
fruiting chamber like A shot gun terr. or a martha terr.
but that shot gun one normally needs more holes than are pictured
glove box or flow hood (hepa filter and fan needed for flowhood)
Calibrated Anolog Hygrometer http://www.shroomery.org/38/Calibrate-Your-Hygrometer
extra fine mist spray bottle
pressure cooker or pot with tight fitting lid (pressure cooker prefered)
daylight spectrum floresent light
alcohol lamp, I use shot glass flipped upside down with alcohol on top but the lamp
would come in handy for those times you spill fire every were
Sonar made his own Alchy lamp, here his awsome post!

depending on amount you could use
fan and spagetti strainer
box with screen and dessacant
or food dehydrator
pf tek at shroomery (grow guide)
moved this quote to the first page, cause it answers pretty common questions
I normally use sporeworks for spores. if you have an accoutn at shroomery, mention it and they'll send you a free spore syringe.

Thanks Darth!!! Subbed. I'll be keeping up to make sure I've got the bases covered!
+ rep darth.
this thread should be stickied in the future.
hopefully the mods will like it =]
im more than happy to help with questions.
good call darth. =]

make from spores or tissue
i've succsefully used this tek by cyber twice
and im going to try this tek anc posted next time also, its what he uses
you can also use fresh tissue from inside the cap to make a lc..

I've actually had decent success with liquid culture and brf cakes, but alot of others dont.
I use about one cc of liquid culture, you could use half a cc if your hands are steady enough.
make sure to wait till its fully cooled, so not to kill the spores/agar/fresh tissue
you should see small white growth in 3-4 days, dont check untill then.
shake jar to break up mycelium, back in the dark foranother 4-6 days and it should have lots of white mycelium floating in it.
Here is a tutorial put together by Sonar

Pluck the mush, and inside your box swab opposing sides of the stem, with the 70%, a bit up from the base... Flame a syringe needle that hasthe sterile distilled water in it, then plunge at an angle through the stem that you have swabbed. You are filling the hollow of the needle with a core of the stem, so a more acute angle will fill the hollow with more material Do not flame the needle again, it has your viable material inside.
Swab the port of your LC jar and then quickly with force expell said matter into the LC. Done.
You now have a clone LC and will exhibit an accross the board similarity at flush, meaning better and more efficient pinsets and final yields, not to mention a dose you can count on as being consistent with the original fruit body..

Nice!!! I haven't seen that method before im going to give it a try, I normally take flesh from inside of the cap with a scalpel or innoculating hoop, and I use peroxide to clean the mushie before cutting in, just some other alternatives. the rest of my process is pretty much the same...
Also would some one mind posting a how to make a polyfill lid tek, I would but I actually haven't done any of those successfully yet so..... but I hear the extra fresh air exchange is suposed to help with colonization greatly..
I know Choempi posted a self healing lid tek for lc's in his thread.. linked in pstankys post.. there are a few other teks in there as well such as fancy way of making tea

From various sources on the Shroomery, I have put together a technique for making poly-fill lids for grain jars. Here it is.
-Begin with the traditional canning lids that come with Mason jars.
-Drill a hole in the center of your lid. I used a 3/8? bit. 1/4 inch works, too.
-Next, take a wad of poly-fill and pull it through the hole.
-Then, cut off the excess fluff from the under side of the lid.
-The next step needs a 6?X6? square of Tyvek. The Post Office is kind enough to give Tyvek to amateur mycologists for free. Cut off the corners and set your lid?s band in the center. (Make sure any colored spots are up at this point. That way you will have a plain white top you can write on.)
-Fold the Tyvek over the threads to the inside of the band. Begin with one corner and move counter-clockwise with your folds so they correspond to the lid as it is tightened.
-Place the lid with poly-fill in the band, capturing the Tyvek and holding it in place.
-Now it can be screwed onto the jar. This will fit the lid tightly into the band and keep it all together as one piece. Once out of the pressure cooker, it can be written on with a sharpie; date, species strain, etc.
Recycled jars (and lids) can be used, too. With these modifications to the steps above, here?s how. In the pictures, an empty spaghetti sauce jar is used.
-Your 6 X 6 piece of Tyvek should be cut into a circle with a diameter approximately one inch wider than the chosen lid. Use your lid as a template.
-Place the lid in the palm and fold the Tyvek into the treads of the lid. Since this lid is smaller than the Mason jar lids, this takes a little dexterity.
-Then, while holding the lid and Tyvek, place the combo on the jar and tighten. This will help put the Tyvek in the right place.
-Tightened once, the lid will keep its Tyvek in place pretty well.
This method makes the lids easier to work with. No rubber-bands to deal with. You can also use them more than once. I?ve used the same lids for at least three different grain projects consecutively with no problems. (PC?d for 60 min.) If a jar contaminates, though, the lid should not be used again. But it?s so easy to make these; you can replace the Poly-fill and Tyvek with ease.
right on darth. dam, i asked u to make me a list to start a setup. i wouldnt have thought to make a thread out of it. (i guess i was just that baked at the time. haha) what a great idea. i plan on startin me a setup soon and appreciate darth making this thread to help me and any other rookies out. and thanks to all the brothers and sisters who bless this thread with their mass knowledge of the sacred cubensis fungus.

Subbed + rep, friend. For everyone who has got the PF tek down pretty well, I suggest reading any of Paul Stamets books. My personal reccomendation would be Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms. Not really too much on Cubensis in there, but many of the other mushrooms' growth parameters are similar. He also goes into techniques for bulk substrates, liquid media, and the more complex aspects of mycology. Its really not a difficult read, considering.
