whats better?
    #4137813 - 05/05/05 03:26 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

i was reading some people have problems because they used a vermiculite that was to fine in theyre jars, and most ppl said this was becasue not enough oxegen can get in there sence it was so compact, that got me wondering, if im using brown rice flour is this going to not leave space throughout my jars for oxegen? is it better to use the actual grain brown rice? or is there not much diffrence? whats ur alls experience with it? :sun:

when you hydrate your brf/verm mix, your trying to get the brf to cover the outside of all the pieces of verm. it shouldn't compact at all or yes, you would have colonization probs, GL

I take the verm after its at field capacity, I sprinkle the verm with the BRF- over a strainer and a plate. Coating the verm with the flour, then recycling the flour off the plate until no more will stick.

I found this works after a number of PF-TEK jars I had made over the months that just had too much flour in the recipie.

I would watch the myc stonewall at the areas where the flour was to much and there was not enough air or water. Now with this way all my jars finish in UNDER two weeks. All light and airy, the myc rips though them.

I use the largest grade verm also.
