need help quick!
    #4252243 - 06/03/05 03:08 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

in docs tek, he mentions that after simmering, you load the jars up 1/2 way before pressure cooking. why is only 1/2? i noticed when i did my first WBS jar that even though the WBS had reached its max absorbtion, whatever moisture that was on the WBS before pressure cooking got absorbed into the seeds and it expanded in the jars after.

so my question is: how much does the WBS normally expand during PC'ing? how full should the jar be so that i end up with a jar thats 80% full?

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

They only absord water during simmering. I think you only fill it up that much is so that the jars can be shaken and then colonize quicker.

Mine expand a bit also. I fill mine 2/3 full and pc. They usually pan out perfectly. About 3/4 full after the pc run.
