Brick Cap holds off showing up until late autumn when you stumble across your logs while doing fall chores. Grow it as you would Maitake or Chicken of the Woods, in hardwood logs that have been pre-treated in a pressure cooker (see instruction sheet). The pretty brick-red clusters peaking through the forest duff next to the buried inoculated logs are a delight to find, just when you think you have wrapped up all your cultivation projects for the season. Brick Cap has mild, sweet flavored firm caps with long tender stems. Logs will fruit in the fall for multiple years. We recommend oak as the wood type, though it will probably grow on a variety of hardwoods much like Shiitake does. Includes instructions.
Brick Cap sawdust spawn is available in 2.5 lb. or 5.5 lb. bags and will inoculate 6 or 12 logs respectively. Spawn can be purchased separately or as a kit.
