Can I use the PF Tek with larger jars
    #1517738 - 05/03/03 04:36 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

like a pint instead of a half pint (or even larger?) as long as I use the same amount of ingredients proportianally?

oh and also, I have 5 syringes. How many pint jars could i innoculate with these?

yes you could...the problem its that it will have a longer incubation time, is more prone to contamination and it still may not yeild as well....

with 5 syringes...as many as 50 jars depending on how you use them...

Definately use more inoculant per jar. Try rotating the jar (like a log roll) horizontally to disperse it more around the jar. This will lessen incubation time.

How much more? Twice what they say for 1/2 pint jars? or should I just eyeball it?

shake the syringe for about 10 minutes, if it doesnt already have an airbubble in it light a lighter and draw a tiny amount of air through the flame...when any large chunks of spores are broken down to almost invisible pieces use the same amount of solution to inoculate....roll the jars vigorously between your palms and it should help mix it up a little when you get about 1/3 colonization....shake it like hell to distribute the mycelium to the rest of the grain....make sure you only have about 3/4 of the jar full...you'll need the extra room for the shake....

it's perfectly ok to use pint jars instead of half pints.
Any bigger and colonization is delayed somewhat :frown:
