Equipment Questions.
    #3210381 - 10/03/04 06:06 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to ask a few questions. I'm in Australia by the way.

1. Is pea straw any good? I havent been able to find any posts that discuss it.

2. I've been looking for some jars, In a tek I read you could use Dolmio jars, but I havent seen any of those type jars around. If I cant find anything suitable, I'm just going to order some Ball or Kerr Canning Jars off the internet.

3. Should I rinse all of my Geolite balls before I put them into the bottom of the PMP?

4. When fruiting cakes into a PMP, should I place the cakes on the bottom, on an upside down lid from one of the jars? Or should I place them in direct contact with the Geolite?

Thanks,

Arbalest

gday mate :grin: where about in australia are ya?

yes pea straw is fine.

just use some jars that are as big for what you need, i use 1lt olive jars.

yes rinse the geolite balls

it's fine either way, you'll find the ones you put on the geolite will be a little waterlogged thou :thumbup:

Thanks for that, I'm in melbourne.

I'm looking for some jars that dont go inwards at all, so I can fruit them as cakes, but I cant find any. Nearly all jars I see in the shops at least go inwards a tiny bit. so im worried i wont be able to get the cakes out.

From what i've read there is mixed opinion on this, what gauge needle should i get? The only thing worrying me is if I get too big a gauge, will the solution flow out to quickly, as I'm only a noob and havent done this before.

Also, as I asked in the post above, anyone know of any suitable jars that I could get in melbourne, Australia, that do not go inwards at all, cause I want to fruit them as cakes for my first time.

Thanks

I used 18 gage, and worked fine. For spores I heard it doesn't matter much, though.

Two popular jars are Ball and Kerr(wide mouth preferred over regular) but even a regular glass works as long as you maintain strict controls to prevent contamination. You can find the jars in the canning section(usually next to tupperware and dishes). I found similar jars with hard plastic suitable at 99cent store. If you can't find them, you can order on line. Good luck

Sam
