Would substituting poo for the brf in the pf max fruiting formula work well?
Would it work better?

I'm not an expert on this but it seems that most poo teks involve pasturizing not sterlizing (perhaps to prevent destroying nutrients?) So sterilizing the jars might make the poo less useful? If it were me I would stick with the brf in the pf jars and then spawn them to poo if you wanted

I'm also no expert in Poo,but I think I saw something in the archives with someone using Poo water instead of natural water for the PF TEK.

I have read about poo water too but have never tried it, I think they called it compost tea or something like that...

The answer to your question is no. The PF tek is a proved, reliable tek as it stands. Don't try to improve it. Follow it to the letter. BRF is a spawn, poo is a bulk substrate. They are not in any way interchangable.

ounce for ounce poo has less food energy than grains ,so even if u could colonize a half pint ,the yield would be a fraction of the brf potential.

The water ratio for poo vs. BRF is probably different so the recipe would have to change and now you are reinventing the wheel.

Experimentation is great, its just that your results will vary.
