1st time grower useing 12 pf style 1pint jars B+
    #880694 - 09/12/02 03:50 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

hello this is my first grow im using 1 pint jars with: 1cup verm-1/2 cup brf- 3/4 cup water. and my question is, has anybody had success with 1 pint jars if so can you tell me your substrate ratios and any tips i need on sterilzation or any thing in paticular about these jars.
also i have a question about lids during sterilzation am i suppose to flip the lids.
i have four holes in the top so do i still use the tin foil while steaming them, and i dont know what to do with the tape?
ive read the the about the whole FAQ, pf-tek for dummies, and the pf instructions at fanaticus.com

Tape up the four holes on the lids. Cover the lids with foil. Steam the jars. Remove foil, remove tap, innoculate. Very easy.

1) 1/2 cup brf to 3/4 cup water may be a little too wet, my buddy uses 1 to 1 ratio of brf to water, so in your case 1/2 cup brf to 1/2 cup water.

2) My buddy sterilised his by putting wash clothe on the bottom of a pot then putting the jars of substrate with foil on top to cover the holes, filled water half way up the jars, brought to a boil on med-low heat, put top on pot and let boil for 45 min to an hour. Took off heat, left top on, allowed to cool until pot was just warm to the touch. 5/6 jars colonized completely, 1 lost to contaims. But if you have a P.C., well than you are luckier and wealthier than my buddy

3) the only difference in using 1 pint jars instead of 1/2 jars is colonisation time.

have fun, good luck

My buddy has growen with pint jars with little problem, it is true though that you will see a jump in colonization time, allso be carfull about moisture in pint jars. As far as the other questions this is how my friend does it.. Lid up Lid down doesn't really matter that much, some people thought that with the lid up it would allow for some airflow however the seal makes a seal up or down. Instead of tape just use tinfoil in the sterilization faze. Slide off jar, incoulate and slide back on, the tin foil is loose and will allow a little air exchange if you deside to tip them, The only reason people have given to use a tight seal like tape is that leaving the hole exposed can lead to contams, just make sure your clean and you will have no contams, use the original box to store your jars in spray with lysol and your set
