yet another question about jars
    #2761412 - 06/03/04 10:41 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i'm cheap.it's just something i want to point out.But it's stating the obvious.I want to know if its alright/possible to use a 1/2 pint tek with a 10oz jar.I'd put in a (8oz)1/2 pint recipe then fill the remaining space with verm.Any problems?

I think you may have a problem getting the syringe all the way down through the thick layer of dry verm. You need to inject against the glass at the top of the brf substrate. If you inject into the dry verm it will suck up the spore suspension and probably not germinate very well,if at all. I would suggest that you go ahead and fill the jar up to about a half an inch from the top and add the last bit to the top with dry verm. It will take a little longer to colonize but you should be fine.

Good Luck!
MYKEY

there shouldn't be much difference between the 8 oz and 10 oz jars... you should be fine with a 1/2" verm barrier

i think using small tupperware containers is the pefect cake. It makes a block of mycelium when its done which is about the same time cause i inject 8 holes in the block, 2 on each longer side, 1 on each shorter side, and 2 in the middle. It also has much more surface area at the top to fruit from cause i never see fruits from the sides of cakes even with dunking/rolling.
