3 quarts is usually the minimum.

Look up the manual for your PC

Thanks again Gentlemen! I'm still waiting for it to arrive but will look as soon as I get it. Quicki question: Is one lid eek better than another for PC? I've read some say go plastic and others say Shit NO only use metal? I bought some plastic ones off eBay and some metal ones off etsy BUT I would rather make my own but want them to be able to handle the pressure of the PC and still be economically feasible! Etsy sells some for 7.00 each!!! are they that much better???? I've looked at most posts re:lids and they all seem practical but is one TEK better than another?

I haven't found one to be better than another. They all have their ups and downs. Plastic one piece may warp a little. Never had the narrow mouth warp, only the wide mouth. Metal 2 piece lids, if you flip it rubber side down it'll seal and be a bitch to come off. If you flip it over it'll slid all over the place. I use both, I like my plastic lids and my 2 piece lids. I've taken several of my two piece lids and ripped the rubber seal out so they wouldn't seal and won't slid like a flipped lid. I've used poly stuffing, micropore tape and sfd stickers. I like the stickers the best cause I don't have to tape or stuff poly in holes. But I don't even wash my lids anymore. I'll wipe the inside and that's all. The PC is going to kill the bad shit.

quick question Crack after one innocs an agar plate where does one put it for optimal myc? I ask because the agar plates have to stay refrigerated but it doesn't make sense to put an innoc plate back in fridge?:confused:

You can put it on a bookcase, just wrap it up. I put mine where it gets ambient light, sometimes too much sunlight. I usually just stack them on my flowhood or right next to it on my shelf.

I cut saran wrap into 1 inch little rolls and use that to wrap my plate a couple times. It seals and lets you move them around lids falling off. Some use Para film or tree grafting wrap.
