1/2 Pint Glass Jars!
    #2978394 - 08/08/04 03:49 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hey guys,well I have been looking all over for these jars, I want to sterlize my vermiculite/brown rice flour mix in these sized jars for my myc- using a pressure cooker of course- but i was not able to find the jars at target, home depot, walgreens, eckerds.... any ideas? thx any help appreciated greatly

also a question about a pressure cooker, is a pressure cooker pretty much an ordinary stove ready pot with a lid to covere the top? you know the lid holds the pressure inside or am i mistaken.

Pressure cookers make 10 or more PSI of pressure inside. A pot with a lid is no pressure cooker. You want a 15psi pressure cooker, or you will likely be dealing with a much higher percentage of failed jars due to contams (which don't show up until later, so out of 6 jars you will be caring for for at least a week during incubation, you may lose 3 or more of them if you don't invest in a pressure cooker). You cannot ignore contaminants, the resulting mushrooms will likely make you pretty sick as a side effect if you don't abort/toss the cake. Save yourself aggravation and get one - if $30-40 is too much for a new one then try hitting garage sales, yard sales, or resale shops for one.

The lid has to seal to creat preasure. although I have had great luck with using a reagular large pot with a lid and filling it with 1 inch of water and boiling it on low for one hour both times I have tried this and have had no contamintaed jars if you can't find 1/2 pints order them online or use 1 pint. and double the recipe it will work but take a little longer but you can produce more mushrooms.

You can get jars of varying sizes at Walmart, grocery stores, health food stores, Ace True Value hardware stores and arts and craft stores, to name a few. I recommend getting larger jars and some grains (rye berries, millet, whole brown rice, popcorn, etc.) It much simpler than the pf tek. Just soak the grain overnight, rise it, strain it for 5 minutes, then load it in the jars 60% full and pressure cook for an hour. It should be fully colonized within 10 days and will produce way more and bigger shrooms than brf+verm. Theres way more info on grains in the shroomery faq
