Effects of too much BRF using PF Tek
    #3534240 - 12/23/04 01:49 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Right now I'm pressure cookin my first of three batches of four PF jars each. I mixed up eight of the jars using the standard method outlined in the original PF tek method (pretty much just mixed up the ingredients) The remaining four jars I did sort of like the "simple man's PF Tek". I drenched the verm and set it aside for like 45 minuntes to drain in a cullender over some paper towel. So the time I got to mixing that up I was workin on a doob and I forgot if I'd used verm for 6 or 12 jars. I think I may have put in more BRF than is called for. These jars are a little bit whiter than the others but there is more vern than BRF.

I figured I'll just try them out anyways. Any speculation on what the affects may be? Or any predictions of utter failure?

My spores probably won't arrive for about a week so I'll just let the jars set and see if any contaminents pop up. Would I be correct in figuring a week should be enough time to catch anything major?

Thanks all...

My first ones with too much BRF were so gooey! They turned into a putty, like play-dough. They also fermented quicker then they cultivated.

That's just my experience

I think more verm is better than more flour. Just through my experience.

I never supposed for the love of me that it would all be so vivid.

Son of a bitch...pressure cooker ran out of water and burnt my first batch of jars.

Substrate mix is burt for almost the first 1/4th of the jar, then the last 1/4 of straight verm looks burnt too, looks a grey/silver/black color kind of like shiny ashes or charcoal or something. The middles look just slightly darker than the uncooked jars.

Should I throw them out or are they useable?

The tek says nothing about this. Chances are, particularly since you used more BRF than specified, that the substrate is on the dry side. It might work nevertheless, but it isn't as it is supposed to be.

Well yeah thats why I said it was "sort of like the 'simple man's'" tek

I figured I'd try it and see what happens....

I'll be tossing the burnt ones though I guess...I put about 1-1/2" of water in the pc...next time i'll use more... at what point do you strt to have too much water in there?

Well look at it like a learning experience!  Now you will be sure to check the water!  I myself had the same learning experience several years ago :wink:
