GENERATING GRAIN SPAWN

Figure 119. Expanding mycelial mass using a combination of liquid fermentation and traditional grain-transfer
techniques. After fermentation for 3-4 days, 100 quart (liter) jars of sterilized grain are liquid-inoculated. These are denoted as G'
Masters. !n 7-10 days, 1000-½ gallon (2 liter) jars are inoculated from these G' masters. These are called G2. Then, 10,000 G3 gallon jars
are inoculated from the G2's. Once grown through, 100,000 bags of sawdust spawn can be generated from the G3 jars. Each sawdust bag
can be expanded by a factor of 10 into supplemented sawdust, creating 1,000,000 fruiting blocks. At 1-2 lbs. of mushrooms per block, more
than 1,000,000 lbs. of mushrooms can be grown from one petri dish in as short as 80 days—depending upon the species and strain.
