Taken from the book "THE  GOLDEN  DOORKNOB", by Stephen L. Peele, FMRC:
Taken from "THE  GOLDEN  DOORKNOB", By Stephen L. Peele (FMRC):
Some species of mushrooms have the ability to produce sclerotia.  Most mushrooms and other fungi do not have this ability.  Several of the psychoactive species of mushrooms produce sclerotia.  Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe tampanensis are two examples.  The sclerotia is actually an alternative expression of the mushroom to insure the continuation of the species.  This modification is also directly associated with the survival of the mushroom during environmental extremes.  High temperatures, desiccation, or nutrient deprivation, cause these types of mushrooms to form this resistant structure.  The sclerotia is formed by the cells branching profusely, and then develop into a thick outer layer to protect the inside against the extremes of the current environment.  The sclerotia contains stored nutrients, and can survive under unfavorable conditions for many years".  No sclerotia that I know of grows on wood.
The use of the word truffle for these sclerotia is an incorrect term.  They are not truffles.  They are sometimes refered to as "philosopher stones".  I believe this term was placed by Dr. Pollock, the one who collected the first ever specimen of Ps. tampanensis along with Gary Lincoff in early Sept. 1976, just outside Tampla, FL.  It was once only held by 5 people when I deposited it into the CBS Culture Bank in The Netherlands to ensure that it would not die out.  I was once told that even Paul Stamets lost his culture.  Today, people all over the world have access to it.
The book sells for $20.00 post paid ($30.00 Overseas Airmail)  slp/fmrc

.....seems strange you did not understand anything?  I'd say you must be in some kind of darkness.  I have never had a comment like that before.

 :rolleyes: Just a thought , I just picked up a spray bottle and it had a small fall on it so when you mist the fan makes smaller droplets. hopefully it will also move enough air to satisfy requirements. this was a cheep buy and may save some work . Keep growing and good karma.

 I have a question, my cakes have shrunk by 30% is this normal? I used filter lids without putting the metal lid on. Could this be to much air exchange? I'm also looking into plastic jars as I have seen some info on them, any thoughts would be helpful.

I just got 10 gallons of spent brewery grains from a local brewery. In it there is 4 kinds of malt,  oatmeal flakes, rice hulls, yeast, any ideas on what I should start with first? Any help will be great.
