I have a jar that is 100% white, and has been for 3 days I took it out o the heat yesterday. Then today I cold dunked it for around 8hrs (not like it needed it or anything) I then put it in my perlite box with a fish tank pump pumping into it to it 24/7. Will it pin? I understand that higher levers of co2 cause pinning, so should I kill my air pump?

lol.  two big misconceptions here.

First, dunking helps a lot.  If you want a good flush, it's needed.  Also, normal time for coldshocking/dunking is 12-24 hours.  Rolling/double end casing is also very recommended.

Second, high level of CO2 promotes vegetative growth, not generative growth.  That means, lots of fresh air will help induce pins.  It is one of 3 pinning strategies. :wink:  The other two are temp drop(thus cold shock to give it a kick start) and light.

Good luck!

Rye? I wouldn't. Case them with moist casing mix and give them good misting to near saturation.

I don't know if your Qt jars have lips, but it'll be hard to keep the substrate from disintegrating into pieces under water if you have to pull them through the lips. Also, the benefit would be minimal with rye. A good misting will be very very very effective. Stay with misting.
