1/2 pint jars substitutes
    #869504 - 09/07/02 05:40 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have searched and found nothing. There are no 1/2 pint jars in my area, nothing, nowhere! So I have to substitute them with something else but I don't know what. Mickey Rourke, you suggested shot glasses, that is great and all except i dont have too many. Can someone please help me on this?

Thanks.

Is this a joke? You live in the fucking third largest metropolitan area in the United States, and you can?t find canning jars or anything to use for PF? What exactly do you need help with?specifically? Do you want us to tell you somewhere that sells shot glasses? There are probably a few places in Chicago that have them. Do you want us to give you the address of a website that sells canning jars?
Order some fucking jars, or go look for some tapered glasses. Or just do casings so that tapered containers aren?t terribly important. You have plenty of options?I mean, seriously?how fucking hard is this? You live in one of the largest cities in the most advanced civilization on this planet, and all you need are some fucking glass containers. This is ridiculous.
And my advice is to not use shot glasses?just too small, IMO. But if you don?t mind the hassle, then go ahead. Oh, and if you go to a large grocery store, there is a very good chance that you will find some jelly sold in 4-8 oz jars that would work well. Have a toast party and then use the jars. There are plenty of things you could do.

Mechanical Man? More like mechanical dick head! No im not fucking retarded, I checked the local round of grocery stores! Chicago is the biggest city, and that's why im not gonna fucking drive to the other side of it looking for jars! Buy a bunch of shot glasses!? They cost more than jars! Im not gonna order a bunch of presterilized jars to my house when I can easily subs. them for something else.

"There are plenty of things you could do."
I didn't here you name any.

Hilarious Mech. Man. Seriously sixcee, did you try Jewel? They're only the biggest grocer in Illinois and every Jewel I've ever been in has pint and half-pint jars. There's also pint and half-pint jars at a small obscure chain called Wal-mart, but such specialty markets are only for the hardcore shroom-heads.

Hmm, you are pretty much contradicting yourself. You claim that you aren?t ?retarded,? yet it hasn?t occurred to you that you can order fucking canning jars on the web. I?ll tell you where if you ask nice :tongue:

Hey, jackass, I already told you NOT to use shot glasses.

BTW, if you did a decent job searching the forums you would have found ways of getting canning jars or subs. I already told you some things you could do, since you couldn?t fucking handle this on your own. If you want to know where to get some jars, then you can ask without calling me ?mechanical dick head,? or you can wait for someone else to tell you.

go to some hardware stores and ask someone who works there where the canning jars are. you can also get vermiculite and perlite there.

Yeah, I prefer to just use two layers of foil on my canning jars anyway.

heh,... thats pretty hard to believe that chicago doesnt have at least 1 dozen kerr 1/2 pint canning jars in that whole city...
hell u can buy some over the internet, u can even buy presterilized substrate ones...
or u can use shot glasses, drinking glasses, other sized jars.... they work no different than jars... just maybe easier to contam...

ill buy you some jars and send them to you @ cost if you want (cost of jars plus shipping cost. the only problem is that havent found any wide mouth half pints. so if you want them for cakes its not a good idea, but if you dont mind scooping them out and casing them, then this would be fine. the actuall cost of the jars is going to be under 10 dollars, and im nbot sure about shipping, but if you really want them ill help you out. pm me or just responde and we'll work it out. good luck:) phil

dude my god, walmart has them, if not there try dollar stores or anything. i swear walmart has them, grocery stores have them. if all else fails go to fucking walmart and buy those small plastic 6 oz juice cups. i used two of those and they are colonizing faster than the half pint jars

*edit* a box of 12 jars at walmart is like $7

if the above posts dont help you, then i suggest you go back to these stores you went to and ASK someone that works there where the jars are, because sometimes stuff is hard to find. took me a long time to find the verm at lowes

Thanks for the advice Ripple, I haven't thought about that! Great idea! Thanks for tryin to help Mile69.

Like I said before, Im not gonna drive through Chicago searching for 1/2 pint jars. So when you say, "no jars in all of chicago!?" Im just talkin about my area.

Im gonna use drinking glasses, that's a great idea. Thanks

LOL this is just funny!

Dont go to grocery, i searched grocery stores a long time ago and no luck. Try K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Zellers or any general house supplies store. It cant be that hard, especially if you live in a huge fuckin city like Chicago!

"Chicago is the biggest city, and that's why im not gonna fucking drive to the other side of it looking for jars!"
Well then you shouldn't grow mushrooms. You need to put some effort into it, and it starts with driving around for supplies. I drove around for an entire day, a whole fuckin day looking for Dessicant and didnt find any but at least i tried!

Its not that hard, really its not!
Fd :grin:
