Use a coco coir/vermiculite mix or just straight coir. Those jars should be fine.

I use peat moss (must be high quality or you will be picking sticks out of your casing) pearlite and hydrated lime
I put 1/2 in layer of moist pearlite
substrate
1/2 in layer of 50/50 peat and pearlite
I mix in a little lime for a ph buffer also

my vote would be coco coir (petsmart as bed a beast) and vermiculite (garden supply store, nursery) 50:50, 60:40, eyeballing the amounts should be fine...just make sure the coir is expanded first :wink:

Add water til a good squeeze gives a few drips, and load into qut jars (with some sort of hole in lid to let out pressure) and PC for about an hour (little more little less shouldn't hurt if at 15 psi)

Just seems easiest to use right off, because, at least for the first flush, pH seems to be right about 7 (neutral)... It's better to use a buffer, but plenty of folk (myself) haven't gotten away without one.

If you plan on staying in the game for a while, then definately invest in some powdered oyster shell (recommended by scatmanrav and agar, among others)...really nice to ward off contams who like an acidic environment (mean green).  After the myc colonizes the casing you will see the pH start dropping, so that's where the buffer comes into play.

Hope that helps
