Welcome to Permies, Arthur!

I would take the long silence to your post as a negative. What kind of mushrooms are you trying to grow?

I suppose you could try and see how well they do with some bean curd waste in the media. The only thing I am wondering about is the nitrogen (protein) content of bean curd waste. Mycelia don't need a whole lot of nitrogen and you don't want to have excess protein around as that would invite competition from bacteria.
