How to prepare coir and bulk substrate:
https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11916595/fpart/1/vc/1
 2 quarts verm 4 qts water and 1 brick coir (or 650-700g chipped from block)
1 brick of coir = 650g (1.43 lbs) (you may have to chip off that much from the larger 11 lbs blocks sold by Home Depot)
If you’re doing it right a 1:4 spawn to substrate will take off. I’ve done as high as 7:1 without issue, but it takes longer to colonize.

was the finish weight wet or dry?. If it was dry Im jacking in my job and having a go!. Not really, I did acid in my 20s and left my ego on the far side of the doors.
Need more info on micro-dosing though.

All we need is that sniffer tech that they came up with for airports and a turpine dispenser on the subscribers end and we're in business.

asianboy8969 says:

Do you have an opinion on freeze drying the mushrooms?

Luke says:

Agar is made up of what material ? Also the spores online are in syringes. is it advisable to go for those? Are their outcomes good?
Great video 🙂

Earl Jenkins says:

Since I have a electric stove which propane or electric burning should I get for my pressure cooker ? Buying a new stove isn't a option. Let me know please and thanks!

Humble 9300 says:

Awesome video. What I always thought was funny and never understood was How wild mushrooms can grow on wood rot and poop yet, when you grow them at home you mist sterilize everything.

Aaron Prack says:

Thank you aplenty for the great, if sleep-inducing vid.
So appreciative of the great quality tutorial, especially for the fastidious safety protocols throughout.
… until 51:45 when I gotta say my ass clenched the couch cushions so hard I am still trying to flatten them. You poked the substrate out of the mixer while your right hand had the finger ON THE TRIGGER! My Lawd! Please for the love of mycelium be safe amigo. Want you able to make more awesome content with both your good hands.

Keven De La Cruz says:

how much water should i put inside the pressure cooker ? for jars

Dr Yoshi Yamamoto says:

Strain kinda looks like Burma

Benjamin Turner says:

Did you mention how long the whole process took? I saw mentioned of how long individual steps took, and I guess I could rewatch and calculate.

Rhett Having a Vietnam Flashback says:

I was planning to do my next grow almost exactly the same as this so I'm very glad I found this video. Having to do a stealth grow so the small totes seem like the way to go.

d mar says:

South Carolina was here. Jersey cow poop grows the best shroomz. Fun to Catfish while eating the fungi

Daniel Detweiler says:

great video man, i know everyone has "their way" and will eagerly point out whatever you did "wrong" LoL but you've certainly given me some insight into changing a few things for my next run….
p.s always love to see the blu-sing happen on harvest!! use psilocybe cubensis to treat ptsd & anhedonia, i did

Sterling Archer says:

Those cut "stumps" are blue af!!! I love it!!

scriptless says:

You said you bring the pot to a boil then let it soak for an hour. You like to stir and then let it steep for another hour? so 2 hours total?

JoshPlacid says:

Would you give the spores a B+ rating? Great video.

Davin Stewart says:

Anyone want to guess how long until Youtube demonetizes this?

John Doe says:

"Ignore the fact my lunch is in there and….."
I died right there.

Dan Chan says:

Are these the same kind of mushrooms I find growing in a cattle pastures in manure? They look very similar.

Eben Rootman says:

Hi Gordo, great video, thanks so much! I've watched it twice now, and don't know if I somehow missed the grain to substrate ratio you use? Again thanks for an awesome resource!

kitopapepipopoo says:

What a conflicting video. I feel so excited and alive to learn so well how to produce my very own mushrooms in such high quantity. But yet listening to this guy's voice makes me want to kill myself and go to sleep. Nonetheless, its a fantastic video and ive watched the whole thing multiple times. Thank you Gordotek for making such a detailed explication of the entire process, this is the best mushroom video on youtube
