Cordyceps Militaris Substrate and Growing:

Measure out 3 cups of grain (Wild Bird Seed, Millet, Rice,Popcorn etc.). Prepare the grains by adding to a pot of water and simmering for about 15-30 minutes, until the grains are about double the size, but not bursting open. Strain the grains for about 5 minutes. Add the grains back into the pot. While the grains are still hot add 2 tablespoons of Karo (corn) syrup (or any other type of surgar), 1 tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast (or Yeast Extract), 1 teaspoon of Azomite and 1 tablespoon of corn starch. Mix all ingredients very well.  Add this substrate into 6 quart jars and pressure cook at 15 psi for 60-90 minutes. Once cooled inject each jar with 1-2 cc's of liquid culture. Set the 6 jars in a completely dark place , like in a box at temperature between 60-75F. After about 2-3 weeks check to see if they are fully colonized. Once fully colonized take them out of the dark and place in indirect sunlight (or artificial light) to initiate fruiting while maintaining a temperature between 65-70F. Over the next 4-5 weeks the jars will change color to orange and start producing mushroom fruit bodies.
