tub size is usually determined by volume(quarts), not weight. weight can vary greatly, for example 4 lbs of millet is not going to take up the same amount of space as 4 lbs of rice.

a calculation you can use is as follows:

1 quart = ~67in^3

(your # of quarts * 67)/your desired substrate depth in inches = square area of the bottom of your ideal tub


if you have 10 quarts

10*67=670
670/4.5=148
so in that case a 12x12in bottom tub would be good, you could get away with a little smaller one if you don't pack the jars all the way to the top(you shouldn't). don't forget to get a tall enough one for mushrooms to grow in.

this isn't much help if you're not using jars, but 4&2/3cups is pretty close to a quart if you want to measure it that way.

Im going to take a stab in the dark and say an 18 gal. sterilite would do the job. 

I have no clue as to how much my spawn and substrate weigh but I use 6 quarts of spawn and 12 - 15 quarts of substrate.  thats 18 - 21 quarts total in my 18gal monotub at a depth of 3.5" . 

b4 you pasteurize dump all your substrate in your tub to see your depth then adjust for added spawn and mark where your FAE holes will go. then clean your tub back out and pasteurize your sub when your spawn is ready.  :super:
