    eating mycelium

    Glitter shitz are the last thing to worry about if using vermiculite. I reckon you will get 2 mouthfulls in and give up.... awfull stuff. But if you make a tea out of a crumbled cake you will experience something. Definitely not as much bang for your buck as fruit but works a treat apparently.

    not entirely female

    Hermies/The odd male flower are pretty common. Looks the goods though. I would be willing to pick out a few seeds to get some of that grape Trichome action.

    Fungi Contamination

    +1 Have to agree with that one. Lots of rain around lately.
  6. Yes they are here. I have seen them on a gardening forum but most hits I got were from OS. There are quite a few white strawberries around if you look hard enough.

    the greatest achievement of my life

    Even though I hate the game (primarily because I suck at it) that is pretty fast I must say. Well done!

    How to deal with nosy neighbours

    ZPBM, I reckon someone so aggressive at knowing what you are doing has an awful lot to hide themselves. It would appear that the exhibited bravado/craziness puts people off from taking note of what they are doing, kind of like a reverse psychology thing. Perhaps they are lawfully scaring everyone away and may well be a brilliant ploy to disguise a meth lab, hydro house etc etc. 1/2 an acre would be perfect to do this kind of thing. Assumed too pricey for the average cook/grower. Plenty of space between houses so plenty of privacy once he has scared you all away. Can't hear noises, smell stuff. Perhaps you do need to get those cameras going, give him a bit of a scare. hahahah

    Watch Me Grow

    What about those water absorbing crystalls you add to potting mix. Hydrate with very weak nute solution, drain excess fluid then plant. This way you have air pockets between crystals and it doesn't go all rank. Similar to the agar agar I guess but not just a slug of jelly. +1 on the light issue aswell. Cut the toe out of a sock and put it over to cut the light... easy to remove/replace. Did this with my sons bean sprouting experiment for school.

    Ethnobotanical Beer

    Firstly, thanks for the generous offer of info and herbs, much appreciated. I was under the impression that Gruit was just a term for a non hop bittered brew, I didn't know it was a specific ingredient that led to its name. I need to read more methinks... but an Aussie ethno 'gruit'sounds cool You are correct on the oil content i guess... and you would need an ounce or two to make it worthwhile, but again if you are not carbonating it doesn't matter. Nothing wrong with carbonating a BW though, i just dont believe its as common as presenting it still. I remember reading FM's topic on various brews a long time ago and when wanting to find it again I couldn't... something in the title about Egypt????? I believe he used saffron aswell in one of them, should be awsome once refined! Like the idea of the native bevvy aswell mate and posting a list would be great. There is also a little info on Aussiehomebrewer about this stuff. Couple of guys here are members there aswell. Cheers mate.......bong

    Ethnobotanical Beer

    A few things pertinant to the above: 1. As long as the goodies are extracted from the plant material they are orally active. Eating a chunky bud is less than triumphant. Lipids are typically used as they are selective (for lack of a better term) for the THC without extracting chlorophil, sugars etc for use with cooking. High proof alcohol would be the best non lipid solvent but you asked about beer!... and you still have the water component which will pull all of the above anyway. 2. Plant oils ie. Hops (mj's cousin) actually promote foam stability and increase head retention... but it doesn't matter as Barley Wines are seldom carbonated and even if they are the high alcohol works against head retention. 3. I am really keen to see how your recipes go as this kind of thing is close to my heart as an ethnobot and brewer. I want to do a gruit eventually so why not an ethno one? It was just a suggestion anyway man, take it or leave it but it has been done succesfully which gives me hope! Cheers brother........bong.

    Ethnobotanical Beer

    Try looking up Braindeath Barley Wine. Expensive brew at a couple hundred $$$ per brew but you wouldn't need much. I am a brewer and am looking into a Belgian Dubble with the same ethno additive when coin permits.

    He probably wont be back as some jealous, immature fuckwits chased him away. Said he would come back and reinstate his threads but hasn't been seen since. Shame how bright flames get stomped out under a boot!

    WTB/Trade - Dragonfruit Cutting

    What you got to trade? I have rooted red fleshed and yellow skinned/white fleshed varieties. Probably could spare 1 of each.
