ok areallyfunguy, go to the store and get enough of all of that so it adds up to 20lbs for under 10$.

Don't rule out adding some potato to the grain mix either, a very economic and available ingrediant too. Either cook and mash them first or go with the instant buds. I know of a one who has done this for years. Tra-La - La I see they saw.

If economics and volume is what we are talking about,.. You may find this interesting. I am looking at my invoice for 100lbs of corn fine ground to my specs for 13.50 total. Yes just thirteen dollars and fifty cents for 100 lbs of corn meal. Now that is hard to beat.

I thought we were going to a grocery store for wheat, barley, and or oats mixed with corn? 100lbs of corn meal is hard to use in this hobby and totally not what we were talking about, thou I am a farmer can you give me the company name because 13.50 is hard to beat.

The farm outlet store is in a town a few miles away. Logistically it may not be feasible for you to get that pricing. I am fortunate enough to be in an area where much grain is produced. Also it seems the closer the feed and seed stores are to a larger city,... the higher the price becomes. Earlier when I mentioned the grocery store as a source for grains, it was with a view to someone who need a certain amount just to get started. I have friends and neighbors who farm to so I am always able to get corn at its' base market price.

Very impressive. I've had no luck with grains yet. (that is I keep making mistakes only some of which I'm aware of) My biggest mistake has been that the grains were too wet when I inoculated them.
  Great job.

Fattrout,
  Very Impressive,....!   :mellow:
    I have been using brown rice, or rye, mixed with millet for years.  You have motivated me to give the popcorn a shot. 
  I'll let you know the progress shortly.
    Peace.

Very Inspiring. I just inocced up 6 pints. 3 with Storm Chasers and 3 with PE. Last time I tried popcorn was with an LC. I screwed up and got a contaminated jar with each different LC. This time I made damn sure that the Popcorn wasn't too wet. Wish me luck. If it matures I'll post pics.
