half pint jars or quart jars?
    #4709452 - 09/25/05 01:40 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I don't know what size jars to use either pint jars or quart jars. I figured the smaller the jars faster colonizing but I will most likely need more jars...

I'm using 6 12qt dishtubs if that's any help on what I should use.

what are you using as the substrate in the jars?
that could make a diff in what size you will want to use.

i'd go with the halfers just because u would get 100% colonization quicker. and if u loose a jar to contams, its less substrate that will have to be tossed. just my two bits though. Best of luck!

colinated, you mean colonized.

if you are using them as spawn then you could go with the quart jars to give yourself more spawn per jar. they may take a little longer then a 1/2 pint but would be worth the little bit of extra time. you won't get much as spawn in a 1/2 pint with wbs cause you need to leave some head room in the jars for shaking. 2/3 full is good.

:peace:

so i should leave my jars at just 2/3 full? i fill em all the way up nice and loose, but all the way up... is this not as efficient as leaving some room?
