Before you start...Do you have a Pressure Cooker and a Dehydrator? I highly recommend getting both!

So I'm using this method with one lonely jar I have and it's pinning on the sides. I was wondering if you have any suggestions to encourage fruiting on top, like in the example photos?

I'm almost fully colonized because of this tek. Almost the same as cannabis growing but not quite. It's only been 3 days and these jars are going nuts.

I'm doing this with 2 jars of PESA that I was originally going to use as grain masters. Seems
fun. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works out.

I like this when I got an extra spawn jar. These are the best results I've gotten so far.

If i use 1 pint jars instead of half pint jars, i still want the cake to only be half pint sized right? So what do i do with the leftover space in the jar? Fill with dry verm? Im confused because it says not to do the dry verm barrier if using larger jars.

Re read it lol.
It says to use a grain jar lid (gas exchange lid). The pictures don't show the void space filled with vermiculite.

Literally read it 10+ times. Thats why i finally decided to post. It looks like the jars are all the way full but with what? Does the substrate just expand? Or is it mycelium that filled up the space? And how do i make a grain jar lid? I used the search on here but it didnt give me any results on how to best make one.

That's how i do it with tyvek. Can also poly fill a hole. Look in Bod's Stickied Tek list if you need more details, his lids are in there.

Looks like only his 1/2 pint jars are full.

So short answer is extra space at the top of a larger jar is fine? And thank you very much for that link

Extra space is fine IF you have a lid filter, like bod said.

The bigger jars just have void space. A grain jar lid is a lid that provides gas exchange that is filtered so no contamination can enter the jar. Usually this is tyvek, polyfil, synthetic filter disk.
