    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

    This is well worth the money as the mix is sterile and vacuum packed. I could not be more pleased.

    • High quality
    • Fast shipping
    • BIG yields
    • Superb packaging
    Cons:
    I have played with substrates for quite some time and I tell ya this is the cat's pajamas. Tubs colonize so much quicker than any other option i've tried. I will always be going through midwest from now on for all my needs. You cannot go wrong! the only issues ive had are with a few of my orders a bag or 2 might not have been fully sealed (maybe 1/4" was unsealed), although I had no issue with contamintion. Highly recommended

    This stuff is amazing came in just a few days and after mixing my colonised grain with it it was less than 5 days before it was ready to go in the fc. Only issue I had wasn't really an issue at all I had to add about half a cup of water to it to get to field capacity.
