Ambiguity of Jar Size.
    #569115 - 03/03/02 10:59 PM (22 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, you'uns:
My friend has 36 jars he has accumulated upon searching his house High and low. He first thought that they were 1/2 pint jars, but now he's wondering if they're 1 pint (they weren't labeled, see.) I told him ..."man, just chill out...we'll find you some answers.."

After he calmed down, He said that the jars are taller than they are wide, but most of the pictures that he's seen online (upon double-checking) seemed to him to be wider than they are tall, but some appear to be the tall variety. He said, "man... If I only had a milk carton handy, I'd have this figured out."

So, my question is, what is a 1/2 pint jar supposed to look like? And can he go ahead and use the tall jars if they're 1 pint?

Thank You,
Esta

You can't tell what a jar is supposed to look like based on it's volume.

If it can hold 250ml [1 cup], it's a half pint. A pint will obviously hold twice as much which is 500ml.

Now the mouth of the jar is not important if you plan on using grain but if you are going to use the PF Tek than you will want a tapered jar with no shoulders.

No need to blush, Nightie...(Can I call you Nighty?... OK.)

But thank you for the course in common sense (something My friend has been known to lack in)... Luckily, my friend took a deep look inside himself to memories long forgotten (physical Science class). Then he consulted the nifty little app. available on the wonderful Shroomery, mind you, that converts volume ( and other) measurements...
With just a click.

My friend sends a humongous "thanks" to the wonderful people that continue to provide useful information on "The Shroomery." And a big "Fuck you" to those who wish to send bad energy........

Nighty Night,
Esta
