Type of jars for grains?
« on: July 24, 2007, 10:28:35 PM »

What type of jars are recomended for grains? I am gonna do the Grain for Simple Minds tek and it calls for pint jars but also says that you can use quart jars. Which size is recomended? I know for PF tek 1/2 pint is recomended over pint.  Also if I go with quart jars (if that is ok) I am also buying a pressure cooker, how big should it be so that I can fit serveral jars in at once. Thanks

For grain, quart jar is recommended over the pint jar.
I am using 720ml(that is 3/4 quart), because pickled cucumbers and other pickled food comes in them. I then fit the jar with a Polyfil lid. http://www.fungifun.org/English/Polyfil

>how big should it be so that I can fit several jars in at once.

As big as possible.
From the cost perscpective you can't beat the 23 qt Presto canner,
http://www.pressurecooker-outlet.com/prestop23qtcan.htm or http://www.amazon.com/Presto-23-Quart-Pressure-Cooker-Canner/dp/B0000BYCFU

It holds 14 of the 3/4qt jars, or 7 1qt jars. It also holds 4 spawn bags to 5 pounds each.

Similar size, better quality but more expensive,  the All American Pressure Canner 21 Quart http://www.pressurecooker-outlet.com/921.htm
