how to estimate correct ammount of straw for containers
    #3330069 - 11/07/04 12:35 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

hey!

every time i pasteurized straw,
i noticed the INCREDIBLE shrinkage it goes through after it has been finally drained.

why this happenes is clear to me, since it softenes up and doesnt take as much
space as the dry straw, but the thing is, i usually end up with too little
straw even though i cut up LOADS.

so my question is, by what factor do u fix ur straw?

i mean this like, twice the size of the container, or three times the size of it,
talking dry, cut up straw.

all about perfection u know :wink:
peace ohm :mushroom2:

Just guess. Straw can usually be pushed until it fits.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match.
