[Tastebridge] Coffee grounds for mushrooms

That looks like great development.  In the picture it seem to be more dense than what I remember seeing in the sawdust-based medium, but that probably is an illusion owing to the relatively high contrast of dark brown coffee grounds to white mycelium.   It'll be interesting to see how fruiting compares.  Oysters are known to fruit prolifically on many substrates, so it would not surprise me if this turns out great!

Has anyone noted the level of colonization in the coffee grind bags?  I am curious if they are coming along as well as the sawdust bags did, which were basically 100% colonized in about five days.

>If we go with wet grounds, we must adjust the moisture with vermiculite, which I have several cubic feet.  Even if we must use 50% vermiculite per volume, I think we'll be fine if we supplement with the Spawn Mate II, which I will bring. I will also bring bags, hydrogen peroxide, digital scales, a syringe, oyster spawn, and sealer.

>I committed to delivering 10-20 pounds of dried, used coffee grounds tonight. Unfortunately, the weather was unsuitable for drying the grounds this week on the days that I would have been able to dry them. The weather outlook looks good for this week but unfortunately I won't be able to have them for tonight. I could still try to obtain some grounds today but I won't be able to dry them. I'm not sure if it makes sense for me to bring more wet grounds tonight since someone else has already committed to bring them but I'm happy to try to obtain them if someone thinks they'd be useful.
