    #2961994 - 08/03/04 11:43 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Would it be alrite if i got straight 1/2 pint jars with no shoulders and that aren't tapered? Or do they have to be tapered?

if there are no shoulders then the inside is tapered... the reason for the tapered jars is to prevent having to break up the substrate, the cakes can just slide right out...

Maybe. Seems Pyrex would only allow you to skip the slow heat-up phase with the PC step, and have little or no advantage with the rest.

Oh, and to help the original topic, I used Ziplock brand 1/2 pint (8 oz, 1 cup) round plastic microwaveable containers and they made it thru the PC just fine and worked really well. But I also got some "jelly" jars, just like normal jars but with pretty baskets of fruit on the lids and faceted sides which seem like they will work out OK as well (still colonizing them). If anything, you'll not be able to slide them out as complete cakes and may have to 'spoon' them out instead when it comes time - if so no big deal you can case them using one of the 'tear it up into chunks' casing teks.

Okay, Since i keep seeing this again and again. Here is the definition of Tapered


ta?pered, ta?per?ing, ta?pers
v. intr.
To become gradually narrower or thinner toward one end.
To diminish or lessen gradually. Often used with off: The storm finally tapered off.

v. tr.
To make thinner or narrower at one end.
To make smaller gradually.

adj.
Gradually decreasing in size toward a point.




I really hope this clears things up for people. Im going to reiterate this. What you want are wide mouth jars. WIDE MOUTH. Those jars allow you to not have to break up the substrate. If i seem to be coming off pissy I apologise. But ive seen this same post a few times in the past day or two and it would be nice to make sure we dont have false info floating around.

"I celebrate the Earth, my home, my mother, my grave, and as long as men are Man they must, if they would preserve the integrated being, do the same---[and preserve]--this rank casual hungry smelly sweaty lusting transitory body, my oozy pulpy liquid-bag-swollen body, bones, blood, hair glands, my bejeweled sex; I love and celebrate it all.  never to let men forget that they are animals as much as gods---that is one thing I shall say."
