Quick Questions
    #3017189 - 08/18/04 08:12 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Ok... my last attempt failed miserably so I'm asking some questions before this time. I read a ton of stuff and it all has different times for stuff to be in the pressure cooker. If there are PF Tek jars in the cooker, how long and at what psi have you had success with? The one I see most recently was 15 psi for 45 mins. Also... I've never used a pressure cooker and it's hard to find info. Do I need to add water in with the jars or just set em in there? Last time there was 80% contam using steam so any help is welcomed.

Also... how much quicker will jars colonize at 70 degrees then at 86? Just trying to see if a incubator is really worth the trouble of making.

Thanks in advance. later

Ok here is what you do. You pressure cook your jars at 15 psi (if you don't have a guage just make sure there is a nice SMOOTH flow of steam comming from the valve) for 1 hour (45 minutes is sufficient but 1 hour is usually better). About the incubator, yes it usually does help colonization times, not to mention it helps to lower your chance of contams. Just get two sterilite containers sized to fit your needs. Get a fish tank water heater (one that can be fully submersed in water). Take one of the sterilite containers and put about 3-4 inches of water in the bottom of it. Place your water heater in the water and then place the other sterilite container inside of the one with the water and the heater (so the water and water heater are covered). Then place your jars inside of your new incubator and put the lid on. Just make sure you sterilize everything real good with lysol or rubbing alchohol and make sure you keep an eye on your temp inside of the incubator using a thermometer. I'd say keep it anywhere from 80 - 85 degrees farenheit (depending on your strain). Hope that helps you out! Good luck with your grow. If you need anything else just let me know.

Should it be 80-85 degrees for grain too?

What type of stores should I check out for rye grain? I checked out normal grocery stores and nothing... walmart's food section, nothing. Just curious what store types I should be checking out. Thanks

I absolutly love doing rye dude. Read up on magash's tek, i love it. Go to any health food store. Chances are they wont have it, but....they will specialy order it for you. If you want it without having to get it ordered, see if there is like a healthfood superstore (in az there is), they should have it for sure.

Larger grocery stores carry rye and organic rye in the healthfood section, healthfood coops carry it too. WBS works good also.
