pint vs half for pf tek?
    #3400225 - 11/23/04 09:35 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have a couple dozen widemouth pint jars already. Should I make cakes out of these or go buy the half pints? This is my first time so i want to follow the tek as close as possible but I just happen to have these on hand.

It depends on if you are willing to take a risk and possibly receive a larger flush. My boyfriend and I are still on our first grow and we used quart size jars. (We  are doing casings not cakes) which are huge but we also have two very large PMP's and we just built a Martha's Closet.
So what I am getting at is... If you have the means to experiment then do it, but if you feel better knowing you are doing things strictly by the book; that's cool too. Also another thing to think about is that the bigger the jar the more substrate you have! Just a thought although bigger is not always better.
:goodluck:

the risk that sassy is talking about is with a bigger jar it takes longer to colonize which allows more of a risk for contams. just wanted to put my 2 cents in.

k, I have an endless supply of vermiculite flour and spores so I'll go ahead and give it try. If I get one or two good cakes for my first try i'll be happy.

thats the spirit. id like to make a little suggestion. how bout go ahead with these cakes, and go buy some 1/2 pints. then you cant go wrong. then you can copare the difference for yourself.

Cool!!!  I found two half pint jars in the cupboard.  My wifes friend gave them to us with tuna in them, now they are for shrooms.  I went ahead and made six pint jars and two half pints.  I don't have a pressure cooker though so I am just cookin em hard on the stove.  if they all get contaminated well...I guess i'll go buy a damn PC! :crazy2:  WoW!! these vodka and crans are starting to kick in!!

I love finding jars now. I was at a thrift store the other day and I found 3 x 2 pint jars. My friend looked at me like I was crazy cause I was so happy to have found some stupid jars. Do a lot of jars and your bound to have a couple work out... if you follow the tek well.

When you inject your pints let your spore solution get down to the bottom of the jar and your colonization times will be fairly close to that of half pints. You did say you had an endless supply of spores.
