Read PF TEK over and over untill you are familiar with the procedures and various steps, first of all try to understand what a mushroom is, in what habitat and conditions they grow, at the end this is all about a mimic of mother nature.
You can find several TEKs in this site, just go to the main page and follow the links. Remember that patience is really needed if you want to go with this hobby.

Cheers,
MAIA

Yeah, the key word is PATIENCE. Don't expect the people on these boards to write a whole tek down for you, explaining how to do everything... All the info. you need about growing can be found in the "Grow/Find" section here at the shroomery. Read the PF Tek, the MMGG, read them over. Then read them over again. Now, after you have done that, you will understand what you need, and how you're going to do it. If you have ?'s after reading these teks, please ask us.

thanks guys. i went where u told me to go & i decided to use " the quart jar way revised " seems simple enough. i just got 3 easy q's 4 u guys. In the article it says' place jars in classic upside down ( seals up ), what does that mean, turn the jar upside down ?How do u put them in the pressure cooker, upside down ? & last When u r supposed to tip the jar to release c02 do u take the lid off , i just dont understand this. But if i can understand these i think i can grow shrooms , so please reply, thanks

that tek is simple, but I think it's better to go with the PF tek or the MMGG tek, IMO.

Well if it said seals up, then put them up, the normal way.
When you pressure cook them, put them up, not down.
When you put the jars on their sides (which I don't recommend doing until the jars are colonized) you don't take the lids off. You simply loosen the lid by giving it a 1/4 turn, and you remove the tinfoil and/or tape that was once covering the innoculation holes.

>> In the article it says' place jars in classic upside down ( seals up )

That means the lids of the jar. The inner part of the lid has rubber or something on one side. Thsi gets melted and causes the jars to seal so air can not get in and out. You want to turn this around so that the jar does not seal air tight. In other words the rubber part touches the other part of the lid not the jar.

As 420 said the jars go right side up. you don't want water getting in them.

>> When u r supposed to tip the jar to release c02 do u take the lid off

provided you did the lid correctly and have holes in the lid(not sure if that tek requires it) then you do not take the lid off. if you have no holes in the lid you can loosen it up a little bit then tip it so the co2 will drain out. (loosening the lid can increase chances of contams)

Hope that helps and good luck on your first time. as a newby my self i would also recommend PFTEK or MMGG but then again i read them all cancame up with my own setup for my first tiem so waht do i know aobut following directions. J/k most of my stuff came out of the MMGG except i used Brown rice insted of brown rice flower. i did try BRF later and still prefer BR (more sapce for it to grow).

You don't really need to buy a print, because a syringe that you buy from a vendor is a print inside of the syringe. If you buy a print, you'll have to make your own syringe, so it is better to buy a syringe.

There's a lot of vendors to buy from: sporechicks, thehawkseye, fanaticus, 3m, CaptainMax, etc... Go to the vendor forum and ask there...

Once you get the syringe, you use it to innoculate the jars... Read more about this in the PF tek.

you can print out the Pf tek (which is the best for newbies like me and you) from this website. It'll tell you what to do in the directions with everything. And you can buy a syringe (that has spores in them already) you don't need both.
