I get a mixing bowl, put vermiculite in first, then brown rice flour on top, and then I squirt the water(I use a syringe for accurate measurement) on top and mix it all together with a fork. Works great, and it's a fast way to make a lot of jars. Good luck!

Edit:
I put the vermiculite in first because if you put BRF in first it has a tendency to stick to the sides of the bowl, and it makes it a lot harder to mix.

I get a mixing bowl, put vermiculite in first, then I mix in the water really good, I mix it all together with a large spoon, then I mix in the brown rice flour really good with the rest.

2 cups of verm.
1 cup of water.
1 cup of brown rice flour.

makes 4 half pint jars of substrate.

good luck!
