Yes you could get bigger fruits and yeilds from a pint jar.....over the 1/2 pint.

Pint jars take longer to colonize.....if we are talking about BRF substrate.
Also with pint jars there is more chance of getting contams with the longer colonization time.

If you want bigger fruits and larger yeild .....look into birdseed and Grain Teks.... for casing.

Larger fruit only because there is more substrate. If your casing your cakes then just use 1/2 pints and make more of them. You will combine them anyways and they colonize faster. L8rs.

Definitely higher yield. I can get 5-8 flushes, typically, from my pint cakes using the dunk tek. Large flushes even to the last.
And they will only take two or three days longer to colonize than a half pint when incubated at the right temp.
First flush fruits off the pint cakes can be pretty large. after that they tend to level out with medium to large size fruits but many more of them.
If you keep dunking pint cakes you can get a shitload of shrooms off of them.....
