which PF meathod is better??
    #865193 - 09/05/02 10:33 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Hello, new member, new grower.. etc

I have been researching the PF teks and they look great. I'm going out and buying 12, 8oz jelly jars today from the dollah' store for my cakes. Anyways, I am stuck between two meathods, one.. of just straight rye and water, and the other of BRF/vermiculite/water. I found some GREAT Brown Rice at a good price of 1.12$ USD/LB, and the BRF for 2.32$USD/LB. Both look great but I'm on a hunt for vermiculite. If I can find vermiculite, which meathod would be best for my Treasure Coast strain?? Which is easier to maintain??

I would start with the brf and verm. Verm can be found at wal-mart and as stated by someone here before pretty much any place that ends with "mart" will carry it. But use the brf to get a grasp of what your getting into rather then grain. Good luck  :grin:

I would add that with brf you don't need a pressure cooker. steam cooking is enough.

I wouldn't use 8 oz. jelly jars.
I'd go find some 1/2 pint jars.

If you are going to try using Rye grain......use Quart size jars.

Why use quart sized??? Why aren't 8oz jars large enough??

I'm pretty sure 1/2 pint IS 8 Oz.

1 quart = 32 oz.
1 quart = 2 pints
1 pint = 16 oz.
1/2 pint = 8 oz.

That's all well and good, but why do you reccomend I not use the 8oz and get the quart sized?? Would this be a better meathod of caking to have larger jars?? If I cannot find larger ones will these be okay??

Because, if you're using grain, you'll probably want to be able to shake it so that you can speed up colonization time. If you want to play with PF cakes, try wide mouth 1/2 pint or 1 pint jars.

Peace

Cool, will do. I have wide mouth Jelly Jars .. they're doing good. I have a LARGE vase that I've been eyeing. It is the same shape as the jelly jars.. Wonder if it'd work. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Thats not quite what I meant.

8 oz jelly jars are labelled just that here....and some are not usable.

Some of the 8 oz jelly jars don't have screw on lids.
Some of the 8 oz jelly jars don't have the right shape to get a BRF cake out of.
That is why I suggested using 1/2 pint jars.

As far as using Quart jars for Rye Grain.....that is the best way....IMHO.

These jelly jars get larger from bottom to top, have screw on lids with a rubber style seal, and have no tapered top. Shaped like a beer glass. I'm going to a few more stores tomorrow to see if they have the quart style containers. I wish I understood the other way to grow mushrooms, when you mix the mycellium with a medium. Oh well.. research research research!!
