Sterilization
    #1022067 - 11/04/02 08:50 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I finally got all my supplies together and am planning on starting my first cakes tonight. My question is however, really what sterile precautions do I NEED to take? I've been reading this board and various teks and everyone seems to have a different opinion. My plan is to steam (no PC yet) the jars, and then innoculate by the oven and use a cigarette lighter to sterlize the needle between jars. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The oven tek is completely unnecessary with the PF Tek, all you need to do is make sure the needle is sterile.

Thanks, how do you suggest I make the needle sterile? Will simply heating it with a lighter be sufficient?

Your original plan sounds fine. I don't use the oven tek either, just wear a bandana as a mask, and flame sterilize the needle between each jar. Squirt out a couple drops after flaming to cool the needle. Using a light is fine, make sure the needles gets red hot and don't worry about the soot. If you'd rather not have the soot though, use a thimble/metal bottle cap/ or something like that, fill with rubbing alcohol and light that. It makes a nice blue flame that doesn't leave soot, but like I said, the soot is harmless.

Before I built my flowhood I never used the oven tek.
I just sprayed the air with Lysol.
Make sure you don't have a draft running through your house.
Clean counters are a plus too.

If you don't like soot, you can use the butane lighters.
