Pint Jars
    #1825724 - 08/18/03 12:53 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I purchased 12 wide mouth tampered jars for 4.50$ and im going to use them... But instead of double'n the recipe can I fill the jar 1/2 way and fill the rest with verm? Or is the syringe not going to reach?
One reason I want to do this is I figure it may help keep out contams better.

Thank you.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

Don't do that, just fill it all the way up with the normal 1/2 inch of dry verm at the top

Why didn't you get half-pint jars.  Pint jars will take a long time to colonize.  The PF Tek is very specific and very successful if followed to the letter.  The more you deviate from the tek, the greater the likelihood of failure.

Good luck.  :mushroom2:

You didn't specify the tek. If you PF Tek and fruit from cakes, and follow the tek exactly, you can expect 2 to 5 dry grams or so per cake; a bit more if you carefully optimize the conditions.

I'd just use WBS (Wild Bird Seed). You can get like a 40 lb bag at Petsmart or walmar for $7

if you PC the jars you shouldn't have to worry about contams so just follow the PF Tek and don't try anything new till you get good at it

I was having a hard time finding half-pint jars at any of my local stores and I came across a good deal for pint jars.

Im using "The Magic Mushrooms Grower's Guide" It says "For each 1/2 pint jar mix 2/3 cup vermiculite and 1/4 cup brown rice flour in a mixing bowl. When these ingredients are well mixed, add 1/4 cup of water for each 1/2 pint jar you plan to prepare. If you are using 1 pint jars you need to double the recipe. Mix all of this stuff up well. This mixture is the substrate material that the fungus will consume and use for growth."

I have read this tek about 10 times (and all the other ones) Just to get my self familiar with what I need to do, the tek does mention I can use the pint jars but does not say if also should use double the spore solution.... Should I?

Also since the jars are alot taller then the 1/2 pints can I lay the cake in its side?

Use one to two CCs per jar. The more you use, the faster it will colonize, but if you use too much, you'll mess up the water content.

Leave the jars upright for a few minutes after inoculation to give the solution a chance to drain down into the substrate. After that, you can lay them sideways and they'll be fine.

Keep them in the dark and as close to 85 degrees as possible.

Good luck!

Ok thank you all for the help, this has got to be the best message board I have ever posted on.

One last thing I have been reading about people using Hydrogen Peroxide 1:10 (water) for mixing in the substrate... Is this a good idea? Like pros & cons

Don't use it in the substrate! Some people use it to mist casings, though I've never found any significant effect.
