PF Tek...bigger jars bigger shrooms?
    #3074823 - 08/31/04 06:32 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Well my first attempt seems to be dooing good!Only thing is I have a mass load of pins forming on the underside of the cake (not around the edge but under the cake)on one cake.

But I just thought of something and couldn't find the answer.If I were to go PF Tek again,only with Pint or Quart jars instead of half pint jars....would the mushrooms they produce be larger?

If using quart jars what would you get ,a few big ass caps ora whole mass of regular sized shrooms?

It would be hard to do the PF tex with quart jars. I haven't see any with straight sides yet. But I do the Pf tex with pint jars. Does it make bigger shrooms???? well mabey but it def. makes more.

The problem with the bottom of the cake getting alot of pins is from the bottom being uneven and allowing light under the cake. Just turn it over and let thoses babies grow.

PF Tek with quart jars=waiting for many months for colonization if you ever got there. Plus it would be tought to get it out as fucknuckle says...pain in the ass flattened sides.

I do quart jars all the time but, for casing and they do not take months. 86 degs incubation = 10 days.  :thumbup:

You do brown rice flour in quart jars and it takes 10 days? Even using myc I dont see how. Takes me like 12 days using grains...

My guess is he ment grains

Maybe, I was talking about the PF Tek taking months though as thats what the post was asking about using quarts for. -shrug-

AFOAF used pint jars for their first time and worked wonderfuly even tho 1/2 pint would be super faster it took him 27 days to fully conolize 5 of them with 2CC of spore solution im sure 1/2's would take way less time. hes just birthed those too so its hard to say how well they will work...

Pints work. Give a extra few weeks for it to colonize tho. I think quarts using pftek would contam before they finished. Just try some WBS, its easy.
