I have to type fast so this might be worded badly I need to take my colonized cakes out of jars tommorow march 10 and want to use trhem to innoc a bulk substrate of coco coir and miracle gro organic choice which is 50 percent composted bark with spagnum peat, pastuerized poultry liter and organic wetting agent i will probably use 20% of potting mix  this 75% coco coir and 5% verm\and adjust the ph  is this a good substrate if not what is I haveb coir, potting mix, and verm And BRF and do i just crumble the cakes and put them in my cake tin(container) on top of some misted verm just like I have read to do with casing. is that the only difference from a nutricious casing is the pinning trigger ex. temp, light, humidity this is my first grow and i want to experiment  i have 12 cakes and want to case 2 fruit 2 pf style bulk sub 4 use 2 as spawn to grain when my pc comes 4days i hope and hell i might injest the other 2 just to see what happens ^_^ thank you for all your guys help I wouldnt have made it this far with out you....

This is my first ever post I do not have a pressure cooker but I use the steam sterilization for pf cakes of brf and verm, my question is this is there any practical way to use grains w/o the pc and if not can I use my pf cakes to inoculate more pf cakes, I have read 1 post about this that said contamination would be an issue if spooning colonized cake into another jar, could I maybe blend the cake with water to a fine consistency and use a plastic bottle with a long tapered point as a syringe substitute (like the kind that you squeeze that spray a stream of water ) or maybe I can sterilize a bag of pf substrate  and put my colonized cake in another bag crumbled ant put them both in a 3rd sterilized bag and mix it up if so how can I ensure that my bags are clean inside and out will Lysol kill mycellium or is this more trouble than its worth? these were just some things I was thinking if anyone has any ideas of their own or has tried any with success any help would be greatly appreciated I'm sorry for the length of my post i was just brainstormin and am new to using forums. -_-
