Is this bird seed ok to use ?
    #4325982 - 06/22/05 07:44 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Is this bird seed ok to use ?



Ingredients: Milo, Millet, Black Oil Sunflower, Vitamin A supplement, Vitamin d-3 supplement, potassium iodine.

Also, would these jars be ok to use:



I used the ball wide mouths for my BRF cakes but these tapered jars were all i could find this time. And finally, is it ok to use 1/2 pint jars for WBS ?

Thanks in advance....looking forward to my first grain venture !

The bird seed looks good. That is a wide mouth jar pictured, by the way. I used to do WBS in 1/2 pint jars. It's nowhere near as effective as pint, quart or 1/2 gallon jars of course, but it works in a pinch or simply for a smaller scale grow.

Thanks Diver,
According to the box it says that these are regular 1/2 pint tapered jars. Hopefully they will do ok....anyway my $1.98 pressure cooker is only a 4 quart, so maybe the 1/2 pinters will fit in there better.

You may want to be thorough in your rinsing in case the iodine in the the potassium iodide is at a high enough level to be toxic to the mycelium.

That jar is probably a pint jar. Should work fine.

Good luck.

Ive found in my current wbs from liquid culture grow, that pint jars definetly colonize faster, i cant tell you why, but they def colonize much faster, and ther is actually more grain there than in the half pinters..

The pint jars colonize faster than the 1/2 pints ? Damn..that's the main reason I got the 1/2 pinters....Well as long as they DO colonize ok I'll be happy. This will be my first try with grain.  :bongload:

And yes, those are tall 1/2 pint ball tapered jars.
