grains in 1/2 pint jars
    #2071817 - 11/05/03 01:54 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

why shouldnt you do it? i checked the faqs and they all said that 1/2 pint jars werent preffered but none of them said why. so, why? i only have 1/2 pint jars that were extrememly difficult to find and very expensive as well, theres no way im going to buy bigger jars if i can get away with using smaller ones.

It's is possible to use 1/2 pints, but you'll not be getting very much substrate/spawn. The main reason for using grains is to allow room in the jars to shake the grain. That allows colonization time to be cut down dramatically.

As dilleo27 already said, due to the requirement that the jar is only 2/3 full when the grain is cooked, the amount of grain in a jar is unreasonably small.
But you can use it if you want.

thanks, so it is possible but more unreasonable. will it provide noticeable bigger flushes if birthed as cakes if compared to standard brf cakes?

I've read a few post that suggest that grain doesn't fruit very well as cakes because of moisture content. Maybe add some verm to the grain and test it out. It really is best to just spawn your grain to a bulk substrate.

would a casing fit in to the bulk substrate group?

my grain were about.... lets say 7/8 of the way full and they colonized fine.... in fact some of them colonized BETTER than the jars that were less full.

Casing refers to the practice of adding a non-nutritive layer to the top of your substrate that will hold in moisture and create a micro-climate for the substrate.

Bulk refers to adding colonized material to more substrate in order to increase the size of the mycelia network that will be supporting the production of shrooms.

I hope that clears things up for you.
