Discover some of the many ways you can use the Fast Fruiting Mix, also known as the Master’s Mix
Storing your Wheat Bran.
Wheat bran can be transferred into airtight containers and stored up to 30 days without refrigeration. It is ideal however to store your bran in containers then in your refrigerator. The reason for this is you want to assure two things.
The Wheat Bran does not get attacked by any bugs or other pests. Bugs love grains. Just like it is very nutritious for us bugs love it for the same reason. Many mushroom growers transfer their grain into mason jars once they receive their order. Keeping any unused portion sealed in an airtight container.
Secondly, you do not want the grains to go rancid. For mushroom growers limiting the chance of contamination is also critical. The reason you have chosen grains to work with is that other things love to grow in your grain. The key is keeping them safe until you are ready to use them. If ordering in bulk you should have a storage plan in place when you make your purchase. That way you are ready when your shipment arrives.
10 Pounds Fast Fruiting - Masters Mix Pellets
Fast Fruiting Pellets (aka Masters Mix) are 50% Oak and 50% Soy Hulls blended together as fibers and compressed into pellet form. This provides an ideal substrate for growing many varieties of mushrooms, while reducing labor and measurement involved in mixing sawdust and supplements together.
If you are making your own ideal substrate mix, you know there are two key ingredients. 100% Oak Sawdust and Soybean Hulls. These pellets are easier to handle, move, mix, and measure than loose hulls. They also break down with water very quickly.

The power of this mix as a substrate cannot be overestimated. For many varieties of mushroom, this is the best growth medium imaginable. Also, for every operation consider the cost savings of not having to wait and mix your substrate. All you do is add water and mix, then add this to your favorite grow bag. Some of our growers have reported gains in their flushes at least double the size, and that the mushrooms appear healthier as well. This helps the growers not only grow more, but ultimately sell more as well.
The appearance of your fresh local mushroom crop does affect the price per pound you are able to sell your product for. Also, the appearance and taste will attract restaurant owners, and grocers to carry your product as well. You still have to do your work as an amazing mushroom farmer, but this does make it easier to get great results with many mushroom varieties.
If you are wondering if this will work for your variety here are a few that respond very well to this mix.
Lions Mane, Oyster Mushrooms (all varieties), Shiitake, and many more.
During shipping some pellets may break down a bit and be dustier than other varieties of pellets, but this just makes their use easier with a faster breakdown on your end.
