hmm. I don't know about top mistakes for newbies but on my hamsters first grow, he made a list of all the possible mistakes he made. So far they don't seem to have affected his growth though but it is good to keep a mistake journal just in case it fails.

using a pot of boiling water instead of a pressure cooker to sterilize your jars. That works for some people I guess, I've had 100% failure with that method

I think the top mistake is just not researching the subject and not really knowing what they're getting into :smile:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Newbies always seem to get way too obsessed with aborts.
Just leave them alone!! Don't pick the fucking things out, they are not going to cause any harm.

the only mistake there is to make is not following the PF tek 100% just follow that for the first grow then move onto casings/other teks after you get it down for the first time. also with the sterilizing, i wouldnt use a PC unless you have a big one that can do all your jars, just get a few big pots boiling and let your jars sit in there for ATLEAST an hour, i usually do 1.5 hrs.
good luck
