either is fine. micro-pore tape is good too.

you might want to wait for it to colonize on top before taking the foil off.

I typically trash the foil after inoculating the jars. I've only had one jar that got infected, everything else worked just fine. The first time though I was paranoid and put micropore tape over the holes, but thats what the dry verm layer is for. Ever since then I just left the holes open.

This is about cakes right? If you're doing grain jars you should have a vent covered in tyvek.

er... did I spell tyvek right?

try using tyvek.  it is legally free at all U.S. post offices.  cut out large-ish sized square pieces of tyvek, unscrew the metal ring from the jar, put the tyvek on it, and screw the ring back on.  its easy, aesthetically pleasing, and you can also write on it with pen to label growth as you go.  also try using a double layer for extra tyvek goodness.  hope this helps, and good luck!

Oh. I've never done cyans, so you might want to wait for someone with more experience with them. If they still have that dry verm layer, I really don't think it would matter species wise. Leave the foil off, it will give them a little GE which they need. If you're paranoid about contams go ahead and stick some micropore tape over the holes.

-edit- Or you can do what the guy above me said. That would work just fine too. =D

I think he's talking about cubes, not pans. there are psilocybe cyanescens, too.
