grain 2 grain transfer ?
    #4136951 - 05/05/05 11:43 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Quick question
Is it better to transfer from quart jars to 1 gal. or 1/2 gal. jars? Any difference in colonization times?

I bet if you put the same ratio in each jar, they'd colonize at about the same rate.. just a guess.

I wouldn't do up a 1/2 gallon or 1 gallon freakin jar though!! Do up some pints or quarts.. that's the way. Quarts give you a lot of material to work with!

Colonization time will be determined by how much spawn you get in there, and how evenly it's spread out once you shake. Jar size has little to do with it.

I like to use about a spoonful from the master jar for a G2G. Shake to spread the new mycelium, and watch how fast it grows a few days later.

G2G......1 quart will get you 20+ more quarts.

It's okay to step up to 1/2 gallons - with a higher G2G ratio.

1 gallons tend to stall, if the moisture content is not PERFECT.

Trouble is both half & one gallon jars are a PITA to PC.

Best - quick - easy - cheap method I have found is a healthy LC, inoculated into big spawn bags.

These 3 bags have about 15 quarts of spawn in them.

With a double coffee filter over the internal filter (as a dust cover).
