to do the inner resivour tek(when you make the 1/2 pints..
stick you finger in the middle of the cake and fill it in
with feild capacity verm) and just go along with
teh chronic tek....
use the k.i.s.s. method......start small then work from there..IME..
sounds like your on your way to doing a good job man...
hope to see some mushies soon..:)

else the tissue will cover over them quickly.
but don't over-do adding water,
that's number #1 newbie mistake.

Found this in Mycotopia's Archives---Gives a rough idea

I just got some fresh info about the inner reservoir tek. The guy that sent it to me says that when he births the cake, he injects 10cc of sterile water into the reservoir. That is a whole syringe full.
It is so easy to set up. All you do is use one of those SHARPIE pens. MAke the hole all the way through.
So then, when you inject water, if it is to much, the excess just runs out the bottom into the bottom verm layer.
I think this tek can replace casing. Because the idea is sort of like an internal casing.

Canning jars are tempered (hardened) to survive multiple uses without scratching/weakening. I could be wrong, but I think you'll shatter a lot of them, even with a high speed diamond/carbide bit.
The only safe way I know to make holes in tempered glass is with a sandblaster. Sandblasters, by the way, are expensive, noisy and a pain in the buttocks to work with.
Just my .02...

U have 36 jars, that amounts to a huge flush even with the plain ol' birth em and fruit em' scenario. U R just creating big efforts, big hassels and big missions for no gain.. If U want yeilds, case those cakes. If you want it simple, just fruit the cakes. In any case this is U'r learning curve, so fruit em and understand...nothing that is not neccesary, otherwise you lessen you're chances of success at all!
Drilling holes in jars??? WHY WHY WHY??? Sounds like a nightmare to me, for what? If U fruited and then dunked your cakes after each flush, I think U'd see the same flushes as internal reservoirs anyway... If you want more yield, grow more cakes. If you want more yield out of your current cakes, grow some more ! haha U just inviting complete failure if you venture from a tried and trusted TEK. Let someone else do the figuring out and once he has it working follow his example.
Make a fruiting chamber, it will cost U fuck all! Fruit your cakes traditionally, and above all else learn.. 36 reasonably fruiting cakes is better than 0 excellently fruiting cakes. Cakes are the simplest method, so keep em simple ! If you want to get complicated, then get complicated properly( casings, dung, straw, lime, automation etc....)
Once U have a few cakes fruiting and a casing or 2 pinning, U'll wonder "what the fuck was I thinking!"
