Half Pints of Whole Grain
    #1339328 - 02/27/03 05:13 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Alright, this guy I know wants has a bunch of half pint jars doing jack shit. He also has a big ass bag of rye. Hes realitively inexperienced with whole grains (a couple of quart jars have worked out okay) and would like to know a couple of things before he tries to do some half pints of rye (and perhaps birdseed).

1- The jars have 4 holes (pf-style) would it be nessicary to tape them and make a polyfil filter on them?

2- Seeing as how they are much smaller than quart jars and even pint jars, would it be nessicary to shake them? I mean pf-jars dont need to be shaken and they are the same size.

3- 1cc of spore solution per jar's okay, right?

4- How full should the jars be? (I guess this is dependant on question 2 but none the less...)

5- (General Question) What are the pros and cons of doing half pints of rye?

(I just dont think its nessicary to do this over pf jars, its just that whole grains are an easier substrate to prepare IMHO)

1. you want some air exchange. but you don't want a free passage for contams. so you want to leave the holes untaped and stuff them with polyfill or use a filter disk or tyvek in between the lid and the jar.

2. as i understand, you don't have to shake large jars either. it just speeds colonization. in a smaller jar it will make less of a difference so you could probably skip it.

3. 1 cc will work eventually. heck, .01 cc could work if it has one viable spore. but i would use 2 cc distributed well to speed it up.

4. yes, it depends on #2. personally, i would fill to about 1/2 from top and not shake.

5. con: more jars to mess with and contam. pro: you use what you have and don't have to buy larger jars.

Thanks dude.

On another note, I love the posts were people post questions as I did (Q1, Q2...) and get answers such as yours (A1, A2...). Very fucking efficient.
