Many fungi can be induced to sporulate in submerged culture - shake 
flasks or fermenters.  see Vezina & Singh 1975 Ch.9 In The Filamentous 
Fungi V.1 Industrial Mycology or more recently try Silman & Nelsen FEMS 
Microbiology Letters 107 (1993)273-278 or Jackson & Bothast 1990 Appl. 
Environ. Microbiol. 56: 3435-3438.  How successful you are varies from 
species to species and you often have to play around with the recipe - 
C/N ratio etc. but when it does work it sure beats Roux bottles or trays 
of grain/bran etc.
