You'd be a little better off doing WBS/Rye combo. Rye is good in nutrient content. Maybe 50/50. You can also add a little verm. for texture and moisture if you choose.

Jars will increase in volume by some after PC'ing. Level could rise by a 1/2" - 1".

You sound like you have a handle on the casing layers and depths. :thumbup:

Good Luck.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

1. it will expand some. i fill mine to about 2/3.
2. for cubs use 1/4" casing for each inch of substrate.
3. IMO millet is the best grain substrate, but is hard to find unhulled.
so, WBS and finch seed are the next best thing.
  :thumbdown: to cakes.
lack of nutes is not the issue, but water content, if you plan to case grain alone  add 25% verm to the jars.

First :
The WBS will expand when Simmering & Pc'ing.So fill each jar 1/2-2/3 of the way full(Before simmering/PC'ing)This will allow you to measure out how much to use.

Second:
Lack of nutes?
WBS does just fine cased alone as a straight grain casing VVVVVVVV

Third:
The sunflower seeds need to be removed(They have a tendacy to contam-IMO)there will be enough of them(without the Hulls )to provide the Lignin.

Adding Vermiculite/coir to a Grain casing only adds water content-which in turn gives you more fruits/flushes in the long run.I don't add anything-just hand Mist them.Everytime I add verm they contam quicker than normal---thats in my exp.

As for casing materials :
I use straight Coco Coir 100%
But any combination has been proven to work well also.

Good Luck!
