I currently have 5 jars colonizing and I plan to spawn them with pasturized timothy hay. Will this work better than simply casing the grain. Do you think it will yield more or would wheat straw be better? Where can I purchase wheat straw??

Timothy hay is not as good as wheat straw by most reports. Wheat straw is everywhere in the states now: Halloween decorations... They are even selling bales at the grocery store...

Timothy Hay WILL WORK if it is fresh and is soaked overnight and pasteurized. Find OT's straw tek and follow it to the letter. Other straws like barley straw do work better, but for me Tim Hay is much easier to procure. I have had multiple successes with TH, but use straw if you can find it.

Good luck!
