The Chestnut mushroom is a beautiful, rusty brown colored mushroom that grows in large bountiful, clusters. Incubation temperature can range up to 75°F but temperatures under 65°F are necessary for quality fruiting. The entire mushroom - both cap and stem - can be used and its crunchy texture remains intact even after cooking.
Usage notes: Liquid Culture Syringes come sealed with a sterile needle and alcohol wipe. Prior to use make sure to thoroughly mix liquid culture with the aid of the air bubble within the syringe. Liquid spawn is best used in tandem with a self-healing injection port bag. Use aseptic technique when working with syringe. Use within 20 days of receipt.
For Chestnut we recommend using a minimum of 15ml liquid spawn per 4lb sterilized grain bag.
Note: Chestnut does not create heavy mats of white mycelium. This is normal!
