Bonne maman jars
    #3227127 - 10/07/04 01:25 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

hi it's my first attempt to cultivate and i bought "bonne maman" jam to use the jars. i bought 15 of them to realise that they are not 1/2 pint. i read that i can use bonne maman jars somewhere here and also in pf tek for simple minds. maybe the jars' size has changed so be careful.
i was to make 4 of these jars and finally the substrate fitted (exactly!!) in 3. i suppose i can't inoculate these jars huh? :frown:

you can inoculate any size jars as long as you keep the ratios of substrate the same
why didn't you just buy ball 1/2 pints, they are available in any grocery store
much cheaper than eating a bunch of jam

IIRC someone in the UK mentioned jars are hard to find over there and there is a particular jam that works good for mushy cultivating. If you can find them though (hardware stores also have them along with walmart type places) just buy the jars. like 6-8 bucks for a dozen of whatever sizes you'll need.

Hehe, the jars will be fine. I am using them now and they are the easiest source of wideneck jars in the UK. They're not that much bigger, and really thinking about it - at the end you will have more myc to case, or whatever, which is good right?
