Alternative to jars?
    #22724070 - 01/01/16 11:57 AM (5 years, 4 months ago)

Maybe I'm thinking too far outside of the box here, or I'm just determined to reinvent the wheel. Would using a flat rectangular or square container instead of a jar work with BRF?

My thinking here is that the flat rectangular shape would provide more surface area for fruiting once birthed. I got the idea from looking over the over priced "kits" at the local head shop. Would this increase yields at all do you think?

Ive seen people use rectangular tupperware containers for their pf cakes. It seemed to work for them.

This thread was moved from The Psychedelic Experience.

Increased surface area in a birthed cake will likely result in lower yield if you're only using the same amount of substrate.  Cylindrical cakes already have a large enough surface area to where drying them out is a concern, and pretty much requires a certain fruiting chamber (sgfc) for that reason.
You'll only increase yield if you increase the cake size itself.

If you're just wanting to find something better than glass jars, consider something like Ziploc screw-top containers.  They'll make your cakes larger and increase your yield, get away from glass, have many other uses, and are infinitely easier to birth cakes from.
Best of all, you don't even have to birth them.  You can just open the lids, wash off the top if you used a dry verm layer, and put them in the fruiting chamber.  They're much more likely to retain their moisture in a wider variety of fruiting conditions, and instead of dunks you can just add water, while mushrooms are growing, to the container in the space between the cake and container.

If you use any other containers with more surface area up top, I suggest leaving the cake in it to fruit.

All sorts of containers have been used for cakes. As long as you understand how to actually do shit you can figure out how to use any sterilizable container that's small enough to do brf cakes

it might be possible if you find the right containers but why try to reinvent the wheel?

cakes are good and so is bulk.
