Maybe for regular canning you want 10 psi, don't know, have never used mine for that,lol,but for mushroom cultivation, you want 15 psi.Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.  :heart:Hippie Chick :mushroom2:

PC's can be quite dangerous (not if you know what your doing, though). I'd highly recommend reading the instruction manual on something like that.

1-2 inches of water inside your PC w/ jars. Bring it to pressure on full heat, then turn the heat down to the lowest setting.

10 P.S.I. works for BRF and grains. With grains you'll need to cook longer then regular if <15 P.S.I.

Would it be ok to put a second layer of jars on the original when i PC them, i can only fit 5 in but if i can add that second layer i would be able to fit all 10 at one time.

Yes, double layer in the PC is fine if you have the space. They will get sterilized same as the bottom layer. Just make sure to turn it down to minimal heat once up to pressure or you can risk running out of water.

You should also let it vent steam for at least five minutes before you put the weight on. When it reaches 15lbs, reduce heat to the minimum that will maintain the pressure without excessive rattling of the weight. Be sure to use the rack or a rag on the bottom. Never let your glass jars sit directly on the floor of the pc.
