    Mushroom Casing is a moisture retaining layer to spread on the top and bottom of your mushroom substrate. This method is generally referred to as the "Bulk" method, Monotub or Monotek; this is alternative way to fruit your spawn bags or jars. We provide easy to follow instructions on how to use and create your bulk grow. You must use this product with fully colonized spawn bags, Jars or similar.

    To take full advantage of this casing mix, the shelf life of this casing mix is shorter than our traditional casing mix. We recommend storing at room temperature for up to 30 days for best results.

    Start by using the following substrate amounts:

    • 1 to 1.5 spawn bag per 1 bag of casing mix (using our 5grain or Rye spawn bags)
    • 3 of our 24 oz Quick-Colonizing 5-grain Jars (Pint and half size) per 5 pound bag of casing mix
    • 6 half pint substrate jars per 5 pound bag of casing mix

    Arrived quickly, looks perfect. I colonized manure bag with a grain spawn bag and the mycelium was growing the next day. I also inoculated a grain Jar which showed mycelium starting 2 days later, much faster than the other substrate jars I started at the same time. Seems like a much superior method of bulk grows compared to Substrate jars that take 2 months and only yield a few fruiting bodies.

    Holy Sh*t!!

    Pros:
    • faster
    • more pins
    Cons:
    I received my Black Cow about 7 days ago. The consistency is denser, I threw some gloves on and just used my hands to loosen it up as I sprinkled it and spread it into my bulk container with my spawn bags. So far so good! Side by side comparison is easily noticed in about 4 days. Much faster growth and aggressive. The way the mycellium colonizes this is different. It pokes through right away. I can easily see how this stuff is going to be awesome. Will post full review after all is done!

    Impressed!

    really great stuff, got 2 of these about 4 weeks ago as a free sample with my regular casing order and I am a fan! I like the consistency. I definitely noticed the very black color and almost a richness of the soil. I expected a manure smell, but it wasnt bad! Really just a slight hint of it. I had 8 trays I needed to do so I mixed 6 with the regular casing I've purchased for years now and 2 trays with the cow manure. Immediately I noticed the manure trays were the first to show white poking through. Literally 3 days I saw it. This continued to pin first and fruit first! Overall the biggest advantage to this as I can see is much faster colonization times and more pins sooner. Its too soon to say whether this will produce more total weight, as the regular trays are catching up, but looks promising! I will review again when all is said and done! Thanks for the sample and glad to see you guys are now selling it!
