To make your Shiitake Dowels, we first grow a Shiitake culture. Then we transfer bits of the culture onto sterilized sorghum. Once the sorghum is fully colonized, we transfer the spawn to dowels that have been soaked and sterilized.
A log measuring 12 cm in diameter and 60 cm long will need 50 to 60 dowels. The dowels are spaced 12 cm apart from each other over the whole log.
