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.
 
If you like strawberry rhubarb pie, try blueberry rhubarb (bluebarb) pie. And try this tiny ad:
