Using 1 pint jars for PF method
    #2261375 - 01/22/04 12:13 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Okay, let me start out by saying that I'm very new at mushroom cultivation.

Here's my question. A friend of mine is growing some psilocybe cubensis and I've been assisting him quite a bit with the info this site gave me. He has a grow kit right now and he's in the middle of his second flush. Now that he's gotten his feet wet he'd like to try it without the convenience of a kit.

He's going to use the PF method and has already purchased the main supplies(pressure cooker, vermiculite, brown rice flour, etc.) To our surprise, the hardest item to find was the half pint tapered jars. He finally gave up and bought full pint tapered jars. I saw that full pint jars are usable(but not ideal). The question is if we use the full pint jars would it be better to double the ingredients or just make half a jar of substrate.

Thanks in advance guys...BTW this is my first post the The Shroomery and I hope to become a regular.

I would make 1/2 jars so you can bust em up and shake em! The only disadvantage to a whole pint of substrate is the longer colonization time, which gives contams more time to set in. Many ppl use full pint jars very effectively...

I would go with WBS sinse you have a pc and WBS colinizes faster and is more potent. Plus how can you beat $10 for 40 pounds of it. And go for bags and case im getting ahead of myself but in my opinion do WBS and you can fruit it like a cake then when you comfortable with that you can case it and when you comfortable with that you can spawn bulk. I have been at this for allmost two years and I just tried pf I still havent got a fully colinized half pint jar but in the meentime the 3 pint bags of WBS is colinized. WBS is way quicker and better all around I could go on all day about it

Go with grains.



6 day old quart of rye. Ended up finishing in 8 days. This jar was a fast one but the average is two weeks for quarts. Grains are very easy. All of this grains suck and crap is usually done by people who tried it one or two times had a contam and quit trying it.

I am in no way knocking the PF tek. Tek



I'm just saying give grains a shot.
