Help me!! (oh god)
    #617545 - 04/25/02 01:16 AM (20 years, 5 months ago)

hi, i think i messed up horribly bad! can someone shed some light on this!
ok, i was pasturizing some cow shit, and afterwards, i dumped it in the bucket i was going to use. i then cut up my cakes (which werent fully colonized, i think to lack of water) and grinded them to a meal. then i layed em on top of the shit, and started mixing. but i forgot to let the shit cool! so while i was mixing, it was pouring out steam, and it was hot to the touch! i believe i killed all the jars!! this was last night, this morning, i added 3 other jars (10 gallon bucket) hopping that this would make up for my terrible mistake! can someone please tell me what i should do! i really really dont want to have to start over, but i will. i still have 3 jars left, that i can use. if someone could fill me in, then that would be so great. thanks for your help

10 galon is a big amount...

I don?t know how big your jars are.

The spawning rate should be anything from 10% by volume.

im not really sure if i understand what you mean..... the jars are 1/2 pints, and the bucket is half way full of cow shit. what do you mean 10%? will the 3 jars i put in there work fine? or should i go ahead, and do the other 3 in there as well? thanks again

10% by volume. Means that 3 half pint jars can inoculate 15 pints of substrate.

ok, im trying to grasp this, please bear with me :smile: i looked up the convertion chart, and it said that pints to gallons is 0.125. so does that mean that if i have 5 gallons of shit, that i should use 5 jars, or is 3 enough?? im sorry, im totally lost now. if you could please get back to me, and shed some light, i would really appreciate it.
thanks anno

10 gallon = 160 1/2 pints = 16 half pints by the 10% rule i think

i'm no expert but sounds like you got too much cow shit to the jars. if .125 is pint to gallon then you divide that in half since your'e dealing w/ 1/2 pints. that right there is enough math to show your cow shit/jar ratio is way unballanced. i'd say throw in the other jars, but i know how valuable jars are and how stingy one may be(especially for a newbie). just leave it as it is and see what happens.
