can i use 1 pint canning jars?
    #1815052 - 08/14/03 10:03 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

can i use 1 pint jars instead of 1/2 pint jars for the PF tek? and if yes does it require more humidity and air exchange? i was also wondering if their is anyway to sterilize the vermiculite and brown rice flour before i put them in the jars.

Yes you can, just takes longer to colonize

There is, but you need EVERYTHING completely steralized, just fill the jars in a 2:1:1 ratio verm/brf/water and PC for an hour at 15 psi or boil in a pot with a lid on for an hour and a half(following the tek with putting holes in it and stuff)

Oh, and if you haven't looked up all the specifics, please do so in the faq and don't get started 'till everything you are doing is verified in the faq

I really find the "haul to full colonization in 1/2 pint" to be daunting enough with pf tek so far........so 1 pint would probably be more annoying.........Although as a general rule, if I put a lil verm in the bottom of my jars they colonize faster because it aborbs extra water.....and acts as a breather room on the other end of the cake for air exchange....call me crazy but its what this kid on the little school bus told me.

A friend is actually doing this right now, he's out of cash and it's all that he had. He tried one with a 1/2 pt recipe, and one doubled. The one with half pint grew some cobweb on the top, but the doubled jar is still colonizing. Maybe he can get pics....
