I just want to say that you should give it your best shot on your first time but don't give up if you fail. My first flushes were small and didn't produce good. People get so impatient and want them to grow now. It just takes a lot of time and patience (i'm still learning that).
BTW I used the pf strain with the pf tek and my jars were fully colonized in about two weeks, which is pretty fast. BUT, I also hear that the pf strain is known to put out a lot of aborts (mushrooms that stop growing). Good luck man.

My friend started out exactly as you describe. She bought
two syringes from PF and innoculated 24 jars. She did not
sterilize one jar so she would have a control. Of the
remaining 23 jars, 22 of them colonized with none of them
except the non-sterilized jar, lost to contaminants. Her
first time, she got two flushes from the cakes and had
more fruit bodies than she or all her friends knew what to
do with (not a bad situation).

Since her first time, she has been experimenting with
various methods. The first couple of tries with casing
didn't do well. The last batch was much better (bigger
fruit and more of them) than anything she ever got with
jars. The moral here is start with what other people have
figured out before trying something new, and the PF tex
is a time tested method which is difficult for beginners
to mess up.

The only other thing my friend suggests is getting two
different strains rather than two syringes of the same
strain. Keep the strains (races) seperate... don't use
them both in the same jar, or they tend to fight each other.

Just another spore in the wind.
