the pint will take longer to colonize aka, more chance of contams taking hold, go with the 1/4 pints.

Your yields won't be squat. Pints will work fine (until you ready for quarts). If you're really worried about long colonization, only fill them half way.

Good call man. That could be a prob. Maybe fill them 3/4 of the way then. Or even all the way. My FOAF has used pints that fully colonized w/ no pinning. He was using a pressure cooker, though. Not sure reliable it is to sterilize a full pint without one. Maybe someone else has some thoughts on it..
