Brown oysters...the good and the bad
Eric Larson from WI wrote on September 21, 2016

I bought both Shitake and brown oyster plugs. Used red oak logs for the inoculation. Inoculation was in the spring. Shitakes have yet to flush although I expected that as they are slower to take over. I have had a couple small flushes of the oysters a little ahead of schedule and am pleased with that. However, the oysters appear to be a very small species. All of the mushrooms I have gotten have been smaller than 2" in diameter. I'm unsure if it is because they are still colonizing the log or if that is what I should expect for all subsequent flushes. Not necessarily a bad thing as the flavor seems good and they will work well for pickling. I just wish there was a better description so I knew what to expect. Overall I'm going with a 3 star rating. It may go up or down depending on how the Shitakes do next spring.
