Rookie questions on starting
    #25339911 - 07/22/18 02:50 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

Just starting out and have read and watched quite a bit of information but I still have a few questions after seeing so many different setups. I'm starting with syringes and 1/2 pint mason jars. But I'm lost as to what people would recommend for a rookie to use. Should I just stick with vermiculite and brown rice flower or add flax seed, coconut flakes, corn meal, gypson and bee pollen ?

No no no. This hobby has 2 main tricks :
1 be patient
And 2 don't over think it
Stick with verm and BRF don't mess with other stuff like flax seeds and so on.
If you got a PC (pressure cooker) you can try 1 or 2 jars of grains.
What I recommend :
Learn from PF tek and learn how to do agar.
Go to grains grow them in the jars with casing, in a sgfc.
Once you get that all good try spawning to coir or straw by this time you'll know enough to know where you want to go from here.

The half pint jar method is the PF tek
It uses BRF, water, and vermiculite.
It doesn't use flax, coconut, corn, or bee polen(flowers make polen not bees)

All that extra shit just waters down your cake.

Use BOD’s easy as fuck TEK. PF TEK is like writing with a chisel and a hammer on stone. Its so simple and super inexpensive.  Why would you want to mess around with all those little jars and have all the tiny step in between? Good luck!

Can you post a link  pastorar of the BOD method.  Also if I do mason jars do I really need a vent on them ? Like medical tape or poly fill?

It is the fourth link into the stickied thread and so I would just assume it was a tek being that the 2 post directly above are tek's, I guess if there was some text after each link stating that it was a grow log or they had "log" in the link name like the ones below have tek in theirs, It just makes one assume it is a locked tek for people that have been around for a while and active with the community. Anyways thanks for the clarification.

Well I already have canning jars and a pressure cooker along with the brown rice flower.  Just trying to decide on which type of lid to use
Also will be building my still air chamber Thursday if all goes well.

No you cannot over steam sterilize your brf jars, it's fine to let it go for hours, the only thing is that if you let the pot go dry it will get damaged.

P.S. sorry for the late reply and that no one else was able to answer this for you.

Not 100% accurate
Yes you can steam/PC it for hours but yes you can over do it.

Steaming/PC is not really sterilizing but rather think of it as knocking the bad things down long enough for the mycelium to colonize it.
Now if you truly wanted to sterilize it you'll have to PC it for more the 24 hours straight this will end up with a sterilized jar of mash that can't be used

Why am I telling you this
1 more knowledge never hurts
2 everything has a perfect point or zone
PF tek for this long WBS this long Rye berry that and so on
As a rule don't steam/PC PF more the 1 hour and for grains 2(I like doing 2 runs in the PC each 90min).
