BRF Question
    #4595366 - 08/29/05 04:32 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey, I'm getting set up for my first grow, and I made my jars up yesterday morning with brf/verm but I decided to go ahead and wait to get some tyvek from the post office today. So when I opened them back up today I smelled them and noticed a gross stagnant smell. Should I remake them, or should they be ok after they are pressure cooked? Also, should i even use the tyvek, because ive only seen it used with grains, but i figured it couldnt hurt if it still allows air exchange and helps with avoiding contam.

Re-do your jars and do it just like the PF-Tek says to do it, anything that smells bad needs to bo chunked
I can put it this way you wouldnt eat skanky shit outta a dumpster so what makes you think stinky shit should be used making shrooms you will probably be wanting to Eat...they probably wouldnt grow anyway

did you put the dry verm layer on top of the mix after it was in the jarf? this is a must for the pf tek, that is the reason you don't see people using tyvek. this dry verm layer will keep contams off the nutrient rich layer of the cake. remember to wipe the rim/inside lip of the jar off before you add the dry verm.
just use the ratios 2 parts verm,1 part brf, 1 part h2o and you will have success.
best of luck
:peace:

yeah, i followed the tek on every single step besides putting tyvek under the lids, which when i went to do that was when i noticed the strong smell, but i did just go back and smell the dry verm and it smells alot like what the jars smell like, but the jars smell stronger of the dry verm smell. And to Alounacara, would horse shit not be classified as stinky shit?...im just trying to be cautious, im new but ive read every single tek on this site, I just dont have the first hand experience to know what wet brf/verm should smell like.

i used the tyvek on my last brf jars to be extra safe... had only 1 out of 12 contam. and the brf should just smell like grain... no pungent odors at all, anything like that, chuck em
