Sterile jars
    #1022362 - 11/04/02 10:20 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

What would happen if I sterilized a few dozen BRF jars all at once, but didn't inoculate them for several weeks or even months? Obviously after a week or so I could tell which jars are really sterile and which got contaminated. My question is, how long can you leave sterilized jars around without inoculating them? Will the moisture break the rice down or cause any negative effects after a while?

I've left some jars for about a month, but they didn't have holes in the lids, I think if they had holes in the lids the time may be shorter, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, I was thinking of having it all set up with the holes and everything and just leaving the tin foil covering the lids until inoculation.

Not sure how long they'll last with holes in the lid, I think anything over a week may be excessive, but I don't really know, I've never waited that long.

If kept in a cool sterile enviornmrnt they would last several months. Problem is the BRF is better the fresher it is. Thats why its better to grind the rice in a coffee grinder than buy already ground rice. It is a good idea however to allow the jars to sit a few days to check for contams.
Peace,
Bob
