Jars and Innoculation
    #380341 - 08/28/01 12:01 AM (16 years, 10 months ago)

Ok, I have made a few stupid newbee posts in the past, however, after lurking for a few more months I am ready to make the plunge into cultivation. (THANK YOU 4 THE SPORES RALPH ! ! !) That said, I have questions about what I am about to attempt.

1. I am unable to find 1/2 pint jars (wide or regular mouth), but I have just bought 1/4 pint jars. From reading PF TEK, my thought process was that the less volume of substrate equals quicker colonization . Has anyone done a 1/4 pint jar innoculation? What were your thoughts on it? I suspect it should colonize faster. BTW I plan on doing 6 1/4 pints and casing with 50/50 in a perlite humidified cooler.

2. This question has to do with the actual innoculation. I have seen that most TEKs say 4 holes around the perimeter of the jar, and to wait for another week after the visible colonization so that the mycelllium can reach the inside of the cake. I plan on 4 holes, three equidistant around the outside of the jar and one in the middle of the jar. I think that this way you should be able to birth the cake when you see full colonization around the glass. Any Thoughts?

Thanks for listening.

relax and have a homebrew

1/4 pints will be allright just not as much substrate. the hole config sounds fine. you may want to use the whole dozen though

if you get confused listen to the music play

1/4 jars are fine.

you innoculation idea will work also, however i still recommend waiting three days or so just to be sure.

I have used 1/4 pint they work great for caseings however cakes don;t do well after the first flush or 2. They will colonize faster but not 2x as fast. It's more likely it will save you a few days tough.

I would also recomend waiting the 3 days after 100% colonization. From my experince the ones that i waited a few days before birth produce larger flushes. So it is worth the wait in the long run. However you can do what i did and wait on half and birth the rest. that way you get your cake and can eat it too so to speak.
