This Tek is literally PF Tek with a horse manure substitution for the Brown Rice Flour. For a more comprehensive write up on the PF Tek go here _> For every 6 Jars you are prepping you will need the following ingredients: 3.5 US cups vermiculite 1.75 US cup Shredded Horse Manure (tightly packed) 1/2 tablespoon gypsum 2 cups H2O* *may vary, add as needed to reach field capacity. For making PanCakes there are a couple different routes one can go when it comes time to inoculate. Inoculation choices: #1 Spore syringe #2 Agar wedge from Petri Dish Choice #1 is easier but has a higher risk of contaminating. Choice #2 is much more reliable in terms of rate of contamination but is a little more technical. For a crash course on a really easy agar tek to help with choice #2 go here _> Procedure: For PanCakes I have found the 4 ounce quilted Ball mason Jelly Jars to be the best choice. This is because of the small jar size and the fact that Pan myc tends to be very weak. Pans tend to gravitate towards small/thin substrates rather than bulkier ones because of this. -For my PanCakes rather than punch 4 holes in the jar lid with a nail I use a 1/4" drill bit and drill a single hole in the center of the lid. Next I pull a wad of polyfill through the hole. The polyfil will allow for gas exchange and restrict the loss of moisture from the cakes. -Sterilize at 15 psi for 90 minutes, or Steam sterilize via PF Tek method for 2 hours. -If you chose to go with inoculation method #1 you can inject your spore solution directly through the polyfil. For choice #2 you will have to "quickly" open the lid and transfer a colonized wedge of Pan Myc into it in a SAB or in front of a flow hood. Here is a picture of some jars freshly inoculated with Pan wedges. Panaeolus species colonize substrates very rapidly, ...... These jars are shown ~3 weeks from the date of inoculation. Once they reach 100% colonization I leave them in the jars for another 5 days to consolidate before birthing the jars. Once they are birthed You treat them like any old PF cake. Dunk and roll, then into the shotgun they go, Mist and fan 2-3 times / day and a few day later the pinset will start to come in, ...... Fast forward to a couple days after the pins arrive, .... Good luck everyone and HAPPY SHROOMIN'!!!
