Pint Size Jars Tek?
    #1180739 - 12/30/02 10:22 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Does anyone have a tek with instructions for pint jars instead of half-pint jars.

That's like asking how much two tickets to the dollar movies will cost. C'mon man, just double the amout of substrate per jar. Sterilization is the same time. The only difference between pints and 1/2 pints is the length of colonization.

how long more would it tAke to colonize a pint jar as apose to a 1/2 pint.. Just curious...

Peace!

most of your questions can be answered by reading faqs and teks. the answer to this question is greatly variable on your environments, recipes, techniques. the short and inaccurate answer is roughly 2.5 to 3 times as long.

I disagree debianlinux, with a good incubator, I get my 1 Pt. BRF jars to finish up in 3 to 4 weeks.

please note that i made many references to the fact that the time difference is practically impossible to calculate. I can however explain my answer. The 2 comes from the fact that there is twice as much substrate to be colonized so theoretically (already inaccurate) that is the baseline amount of extra time required. this is not necessarily true because mycelium tends to get really aggressive the more it becomes established. however, in my expereince and others, the habitat inside the jars over that extra time becomes decidedly different because of more wastes, more co2, less water, and altered pH. All of this is drastically variable depending very much on your own recipes, techniques and temperature controls. It is very possible to colonize a properly "configured" pint jar twice as fast as a poorly "configured" half-pint. Given the exact same configuration for both sizes the half-pint will, by default, outrun the pint to full colonization but by what factor is impossible to calculate and very difficult even to reproduce to an exact degree.

edit: it occurred to me to list some of the most influential factors in colonization time. I can't figure out exactly what order to put them in because any major deviation from the norm will cause serious side-effects to colonization time. Water content, how tight the substrate is packed, temperature, and general quality of the rice (how coarse is it, how moist, how well mixed into verm, etc.)
