jars need air... but also need water
    #2528460 - 04/05/04 06:34 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

it has come to my attention that allowing gas exchange for pf jars will speed up the process. im concerned that opening up their holes will allow too much water to escape--especially if the substrate looks a little on the dry side to begin with. is it still worth it?

how far along are the jars. opening the top and flipping them may allow for a quick colonization so you could get them outta the jars asap and dunk.

as long as your proportions were right when you preped your jars you should be fine... I've had a gas exchange hole as large as 1"x1" with out much problem

the recipe:
1/2 cup verm (relatively fine grade--not the big chunky stuff)
1/4 cup BRF (freshly ground, organic short grain)
1/4 cup water

done most the same way from pf tek for simple minds. when mixed the parts, it seemed to be extremely dry although mixed the parts properly. maybe didnt mix well enough, as i added the parts all at once on top of each other (clumped up water--or does it spread out?)

I think tyvek will allow gas exchange but no/little water vapor loss
