ok, how about if i use pint jars, is that too bad an idea, the only problem is all i cAn find is quart jars, guess ill keep on looking. also, on the thehawkseye.com, were i got the syringes, it says that tasmania is an extremely fast colonizer, faster than most other "fast strains".

A quart jar has a larger surface area than a half pint jar, but four half pint jars have a much larger surface area than a quart jar. Bottom line; Four half pint jars will colonise faster, have a larger surface area (for shrooms to grow on), and have a lower contamination risk (or rather, if one jar is contaminated, you won't lose all of them).

Anyway, any comments on the rye flour question? I've been wondering the same myself...

I agree with matts. For a newbie I would not really recomend using whole pints. Lilke he said, 5 weeks is generally the colonization time. I've used them before and have had them colonize anywhere from 4-7 weeks. Plus being a newbie there is a better chance of a contam, but not always. Try and stick to the teks as much as possible when you are starting out, you will benifit from it in the long run.

f8l.. why not bother with the verm on the bottom? even if you've been partially lobotomized it's pretty hard to mess up the double ended tek and it speeds up the process substantially. If he's using PF jars it'll also help prevent any possible stalling on the bottom of the jar, thus negating the need to go prying. I dunno, i think the double ended tek is a good thing to do with all your PF jars. it can't hurt but it sure as poop can help.
