    #1461566 - 04/15/03 09:18 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

i'm gonna use WBS, and i keep reading threads talking about using poly-fill to prevent contamination. i just so happen to have a huge bag of it in my closet, so what exactly do you do with it?

This explains it pretty well.

}
}

Make sure to cover the lids with foil, lest some of the polyfill get free and block the vent in your pc. Good luck :grin:

In the PF tek, the top layer of dry verm is the filter.

No. Verm can be mixed with the WBS for added hydration if desired, but there is no top verm layer.

Yes.

Extra inoculation holes are not necessary. My friend inoculates through the polyfill hole. Why make extra work?  :smirk:

Agree with dog 100%, have one thing to add. If you are worried about contams and filters use some tyvek.
