1/2 pint or 1 pint, which is better?
    #3350679 - 11/12/04 10:54 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

i am going to start growing pan cyans off of bird seed. i have seen many teks saying to use the full pint jars when doing this. i have also seen a couple saying to use the 1/2 pint jars and to just drill four hours instead of one in the middle, like used on the full pint. what do you guys and gals recommend. i mean i would rather use the 1/2 pint they are cheaper and i can fit more in the pc. thanks

If you use a cake technique, use 1/2 pints and 4 holes.
If you are using whole grain, use a pint or a quart jar and a polyfill lid.

You can use pints with brf/verm...

Anno's the man when it comes to more advanced stuff so i'd go with his advice...

The 1/2 pints are what you should go with when using BRF unless your experienced. You would think pint would be better since your using twice the amount of space but it takes twice as long for pint to colonize than 1/2 pint. In turn, this gives contams. twice the time to make their way into your jars. So go with 1/2 pints when doing BRF.

I've also had success using pint jars using the 9er tek, using just cooked brown rice as substrate. It seems that mycelium spreads more quickly over the rice surface. One hint though is to hollow out the core and fill it with moist verm, as a resevoir and to prevent contams from the inside, because it takes a while for the inside of the cake to colonize.

i don't really see many positives to using pint jars... they take longer and are more succeptable to contamination. only if space is a premium...

only like em for spawing compost or bulk...
they can contam easier but the colonization times aren't that drastic~ It's not twice as much time for pints as it is for half pints...
