if you stick to the tek and dont vary you will succeed. dont try to vary it untill you are experienced. make sure everything is as close to perfect as possible.

If you followed the TEK exactly then you should have it right. :thumbup:

Your question is hard to answer but,

If, you take a handfull and can squeeze more than one,two drops of water from it before it goes into jars. Too wet

If, after PCing and there is more than a few drops of water in the bottom of the jars. Too wet

If, when the jars are 50% colinized and you have a teaspoon of water rolling around the bottom of your jars or the MYC is yellow in spots. Too wet


Did I answer your question? :laugh:
