Wood Chip fermentation at the Ranch
Spring is here! Time to start your submerged fermentation for expanding naturalized mycelium (wild mushroom patch) or to inoculate with lab grown spawn.
Air dry for 2 hours, 2 inches deep and recommended to rake the wood chips mid drying to speed the process before inoculation.
Fruiting should occur in the fall, recommended expansion rates are 1:10 to 1:50 ratio.

PLEASE NOTE: this is an microbial soup so wearing gloves for this process is highly recommended and even so thoroughly wash your hands afterwards. If you have cuts or immuno-compromised, be extra careful.
