A very large rubbermaid and and a 100-200 watt heater set around 80-82. The jars should generate some of their own heat.

GO to wal mart, they have large 40 gal rubbermaids that should fit tons of jars. I'd advise you not to do PF on such a large scale, its much more effecint to make 6-12 quart jars of WBS and spawn to pasturized straw and mabey some manure. With one quart jar of WBS you can spawn about 1sq ft of straw/manure or just straw and get ~3-6 oz if all goes well. Going bulk saves allot of time and money and yields much, much more. :wink:

I use two tub in tubs in a closet. Put in a shelf and stacked them. approx 30 jars fit in each one. I could fit bigger ones but they arent really needed. I dont think they were doing PF Tek Grower, they mentioned the 60 jars being quarts. I use quarts of rye and lots of it. Poo/straw comming in and out of the house and being pasturized (apartment in the dead center of town where cops sit to get speeders) could draw more attention then a 50 pound bag of rye every few weeks comming in at night. And a 50 pound bag costs about 29 bucks and each pound gives me around 4 ounces when all said and done (1 pound does two quarts which makes two casings at about 20 grams each for about 3 flushes). Not a bad cost ratio if you ask me. Not that bulk isnt the way to go for some situations but not for everyone!

You could also thinking about a space heater in a closet and just stacking shelves. You'd need a fan blowing the air around and no jars right next to the heat but it could be done...

Yea my bad I thought he was using pints for some reason. Not like it killed the thread though. :smile:

Thats a good idea using a closet w/ space heater. With shelves there more visible and accesable. With tubs you'll need to dig out all the jars to inspect rather then looking on the shelves and sliding jars around a bit.

Yes it can be a pain, two well designed shelves with big incubators works but the bottom jars need a little work to be looked at. I feel its easier then trying to insulate a whole closet at this point anyway, I just check my jars less. Rotate them every two days or so, shake what needs to be shaken and it works out ok. Takes about half an hour to go through and check them all/rotate them/shake/put them back/remove colonized jars if both incubators are full (like 48-60 jars). Fucknuckle mentioned that he used a space heater closet deal, thats where the idea came from..sounds like it could be gotten to work if one were so inclined...
