hawk sub - Too sticky?
    #462141 - 11/18/01 12:35 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Friends wombat just PC'd some hawk substrate. It came out in a clump which he wonders if that is supposed to be. Thought that the instructions might have indicated that the sub should be shakeable. Should it be a clump or shakeable so that the seed is essentially loose. Thanks in advacne.

Hawk substrate, like pf cakes are not shakeable. If you want a shakeable substrate, go with plain birdseed or rye grain in quarts.

the wombat comined the micron birdseed and the hawk formula. So he has quart jars with hawk substrate. Trying to mesh the recipies. The jars only have two cups as per the micron tek. Will having that much air in there flub the whole deal?

Way to cross post dumbie! Better watch yourself or.....
or... or I'm gonna tell!!!
The recipe was originally intended for the pf jars. So you haven't really made a bulk substrate, just a bulk cake dumbie. Stop asking questions dumbie. All question are dumb dumbie!

c-mon man be nice...

blahblah is right don't crosspost! In fact dont even ask a question like this in Advanced!

First i dont know what the hell the micron tek is and im not going to find out just to answer your question. But the air space probably wont be a problem, but what will be a problem is if your jars are not tapered like most quarts. You'll have to go in with a fork or knife after colonization to remove your substrate in chunks. If it even makes it that far. It will be a good opportunity to try casing.

Me and blah are just fine thank you. I searched in both boards for an answer to this question before I posted. I would have accessed the akashic(sp) plane if I thought I could have answered the question there. Nowhere is holy and so is everywhere. I have seen dumber questions on the ADVANCED board than this one to be sure.

LEAVE BERT OUT OF THIS!(crying)
I was just playing about the cross posting, people shouldn't take things so serious. I mean its not like he is doing it in every forum or anything, he's just making sure that his question will be awnsered.

more air is probably better, except the fact that there is less substrate the more air you allow. meh, I dont use tapered jars and I like digging my substrate out, actually it is kind of a pain. Micron tek is just birdseed tek for use with the filter disks, hey btw upup dont take the lids off until the jars are like 60-70% otherwise they will dry out. How the filter disks working for ya?

Fuck Bert! Barbie is sooooooooooo much cooler! (in west coast bimbo voice)
