About to begin, questions
    #2852379 - 07/02/04 08:42 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Today i picked up my Brown Rice flour, vermiculite, PINT jars (couldn't find half pints), and a pressure cooker that can fit about 4 of those pint jars. What i would like to know is, with my pressure cooker, do i put the wholes in the lid first, then cover with aluminum foil over that or beneath it, over the jar itself with the lid over it. And, Do i screw the lids on tight or leave them loose or do what with them when they're IN the pressure cooker? I don't want anything to Explode. Also, i picked up some Rye Grain Flour, can someone give me a link to a tek involving a substrate of Rye grain flour and Verm? This is my first grow, i had the best time of my life with some mushrooms from bonaroo that my boy brought back and i feel like a better person ever since, ints unexplainable but its definitely compelled me to grow my own.

ANY other general tips, advice, encouragement or criticism would be greatly appreciated.

First, you may have problems with pint jars. They'll take a long time to fully colonize. Next, to set up the jars do the following:

-Put holes in the jar. I tend to use 4 around the edge.
-I tend to put a coffee filter over the lid but under the screw on part.
-Tighten jar and then unscrew about a quarter turn.
-Cover with foil
-Pressure cook for about an hour and half at 15 psi.
-Let them cool over night.
-Inject about 1cc of spore solution into each jar.

Here's the most valuable tip ever: be patient.

Though I am not as experienced as many of the others on the boards, I believe I can answer some of these questions for you. Firstly, if your going with cakes, make sure to search for more information on the difference between 1/2 pint and 1 pint jars in your tek of choice, there will be minor differences. First, poke your holes, fill jars with substrate, cover lid with foil (over top), screw lid on tightly and Pressure Cook. If your worried about an explosion I would suggest becoming familiar with your PC instructions, and be sure its in proper condition, it is going to make some strange noises when it gets going, dont be alarmed, most PC's are designed to come apart on their own accord before the pressure gets high enough to explode. Most of your questions can be answered by looking through the forums, make sure to get a wide variety of opinions, as everyone has thier own, by making sure to expand your sources you can develop your own educated opinion. Good luck.

yeah i couldnt find half pints and got the big ones, i say do what i did. go back somewhere else and get the right jars or order them, im colinising a full jar now just for kicks and it is taking forever, over twice as long atleast. also id advise you do some reading before you attempt anything

If I was you,IMO,I would just go to Wal-Mart and get this VVVV


Or a health food store and get "rye Berries",or any grain you want to try.
and do this:

You allready have pint jars,and a pc.You won't regret it and it is just as easy as cakes,but with better and quicker results.Although,this is your first time and everyone else will tell you to follow the PF Tek,I thought I would toss this out there as an equal alternative.

I have only fruited one cake and before it even pinned I was on to grains.Far easier and less work,bigger and better flushes,what takes 6-8 weeks is done in less than 4 weeks(using karo instead of multispore).

If you can get a cake to colonize,you can do grains!

Just a thought for ya!Let us know either way!
