    #1523366 - 05/06/03 12:07 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

hey sup guys, im a complete newb here, just had a quick question.

afoaf was tryin to follow the pf-tek guide. anyway he found all the stuff just couldnt find 1/2 pint jars so he used 1 pint jars. made the mixture the same expect he topped it off with more vermiculite then was needed sense he had extra room. used a pot and water to sterilize the can and when he took it out it lookd like some white was on the bottom already, looks like surgar or something. any ideas? is that how it should look before adding the spores? or was there to much of another ingreidient? He needs some help on this one.  :smile:

Umm, maybe his Brown Rice flower got to dry, that could be what you're seeing.. Other than that, who knows.

I have found that the pot and water method often allows water into the jars. This extra water looks sort of like gooey white paste. are any of the jars obviously heavier than most of the others?

well it looks like someone actaully poured in surgar or salt then added the mixture. maybe water extra water did leak in? how would he stop from extra water entering the jars? would he use less water when mixing?

Yeah, i know what you mean by *white paste* recalcitrant. I fucked an whole batch or jars with this and was wondering why they were heavier than my other colonizing jars.

I made the mistake of mixing verm and brf and THEN adding water. Mixing verm and water first is the way to do, at least for me.

Make sure you mix all substrate to death....that way you get uniform consistency. When I put the substrate in jars, I crumble it up first so that it is as full of air as possible. This will speed colonization. To keep water out of the jars when steaming, try foil and a rubber band.

my friend said hes used both corse and fine verm, and that with the course he had better results when mixing with water then brf, but with then finer (shultz brand) it was easier to mix brf with verm first, then mix in water, but really its just whatevers clever fo u
