Your pasteurization temps might be a little high.
and I'm not sure that a lot of people still use a 'frosting layer' but IDK? Maybe someone else can chime in.
Just don't get in a hurry and you should be fine.
It looks like you've done your homework.
good luck. :thumbup:

Yeah I thought that, I'll pasteurize at 160 degree's instead. Still gonna use a frosting layer just to be on the safe side.



I would suggest you don't use a frosting layer because if you are doing even layering you will know exactly when your tub is completely colonized by the look of the top but with a frosting layer you will only be guessing if its done.

Those temps don't matter. I heat my substrate into the 200 degree range before dumping in a bucket to cool over about 6 hrs. I'm sure it stays well above 160 for at least an hr.

2 hrs of pasteurization is not necessary, you can go with just 1.

5cc's may be a bit much for a quart jar depending on the moisture content of the prepared jars.

I've heard that you can dump in your substrate and then a bunch of spawn and then mix the hell out of it and just sort of 'top dress' it with a little more substrate. Is this true?

I do both ways depending on my mood and time. Mixing is quicker to prepare than layering.

But in both cases, I apply a top layer of substrate. This way, I know everything is colonized when the top is done.
