Thanks Eric. I have decided to wait a little longer. I am nervous about temperatures freezing or below harming the mycelium process. As far as how to make the slurry, I am going to mix spores with purified water, molasses, and salt. Here is a link for the process... http://madbioneer.blogspot.com/2011/02/spore-mass-slurry.html
. This is really just an experiment for fun. I do however want to see it be successful! Maybe graduate to inoculating tree stumps. I have seen lots of cool mushrooms growing in a forest nearby and would like to see this world come to life in my yard. There are many chanterelles out here. Hopefully I did a good enough job collecting their spores. I will certainly update later in the spring. I have read that it sometimes can take 6 months or more for them to fruit. So they may come to fruition in the fall. :) Let me know how your project is going.
