Thjs week I will be experementing with pink oyster on straw. I have sterelized the straw in a lime bath but I still have a lot of unanswered questions. 1. I had to use 45 liters of water to soak 15 liters wort of straw. How can this procedure be ever wafer efficient? Can I use the lime bath for more than one soak; maybe topping up with lime again? 2. How long does the soak has to be? I used 1% lime. 3. What spawn % do I have to use? I am using softwood spawn. 4. Do I need to supplement the straw? 5. What is the purpose of shreddinv the straw? Thanks in advance!
