23 Quart Presto is what's often recommended.

I use an AA921- though I wish I had gone ahead and sprang for the AA941.

No. That is what the dry verm layer is for. If you'd like you can put a layer of micropore tape over them.

Updated OP with correct jar sizes. 4 oz and 8 oz jelly jars. Had half pints on there and those dont work very well for MS to pftek. 1/2 pints would work fine when using an LC or LI thou

Bookmarked this as i am doing my first PF grow this coming week.. i did have a couple of questions.. Why do you put foil between the perl and the cake? Just curious why the cake can't sit on the perl.

Also.. what is the advantage of wide mouth jars? i got the normal kerrs 1/2pint jelly jars with no shoulder..

Last.. i have read people saying cover innoc holes. and others say it doesn't matter due to the dry layer acting like a filter. Is covering them with pore tape or whatever you want just more protection?

1. The foil keeps it from trying to grow into the perlite. If it is growing it is not fruiting.

2. The wide mouth cakes are more stable. Less prone to tipping from a good sized fruit. I personally use wide mouth full pints instead of half pints, but I also run mine through a pressure cooker, can't steam pints.

3. The micro pore tape will help keep even more contams out. some of us use it on our grain jars just fine, as well as our no pour agar plates. I personally would trust the MP tape over the layer of vermiculite.

I got a little write up in my journal of easy made lids for PF tek. Uses silicone for a self healing injection port and MP tape for Gas Exchange.

You cant really birth a tapered jar. The wide mouth jars the cake will pop right out when you birth it.

Sorry, one last thing.. brought my jar lids to work to pop holes in them (going with 2 holes since the non wide mouths are not very large and 4 seems excessive)

As far as tape goes. i have been reading and of course getting tons of different ways of doing things.. i will assume if using MP tape you put it on right after innoc? i know it probably seems silly but i keep seeing people putting it on before PC and just double checking..

If anything the non widemouth jars need more than 4 holes they stall out way more easily than the correct sized jars, the wide mouth ones.

I wouldn't bother with tape at all period

What type of silicone? I have done this w RTV silicone but I am wondering if regular construction silicone would work. When I first tried this my injection ports were a little thick. I found if you cut a condom into little pieces you can flatten out your RTV silicone injection port to about 1/4 inch thick with the condom scraps and then carefully remove the condom scrap after a couple hours of cure time. It will leave you with a nice flat disc shaped injection port. Do it on both top and bottom side of the lid. Makes a real nice professional looking port.


--------------------
There are three distinct realities occurring simultaneously.

The first involves a single point or object.
The second involves that point/object's relationship with other points/objects.
The third involves their relationships in motion.
