I followed the BRF/VERM recipe in pf tek but i have like 3 jars worth of substrate left over. I didnt pack it all like the thing says so maybe i was supposed to pack just a tiny bit?

When I did mine all I did was shake the jars a bit to settle the material. No doubt the left over stuff, is from just a bit of miscalculation. Chances are you just mixed up a bit too much. As long as they're settled nicely, all should be well....

i can never fit the whole amount in and usually have left over. i tap the jars a little, but leave it lose so it colonizes faster.

i sometimes make bulk amounts on purpose and freeze in bags.. very nice to just pull out a lot of substrate ready to pack.. it also comforts me a little that the substrate has been frozen.. so that's another assurance of less contams.. in my opinion.. i just thaw in the microwave.. pack and pc..
have fun

Not true, sir]. Most all of the contams you need to worry about will be unaffected by the temps reached in your freezer. I do like the idea of mixing up bulk quantities and freezing, though. Anybody else out there know if there are any ADVERSE effects to previously frozen substrates?
