need help can i re sterilize or is it a lost cause
    #11181512 - 10/04/09 06:38 PM (8 years, 14 days ago)

i made the mistake of inoculating a few jars when they were still hot its been 2 weeks and no sign of any growth i also have a few that i did a week later that i did the right way and are showing signs of growth all ready. is it possible for me to re pressure cook the first jars  which probably had dead spores due to the heat of the jars, and reuse them ? or is it a lost cause?

It would be best to start over with new grain, but feel free to try it.

I hate to be devil's advocate but if you think the problem was hot jars and you think you otherwise maintained a sterile environment then you might want to try reknocking a cupla jars to see if it takes. Then you won't be wasting all your materials. You may be wasting the serum you use to reknock (spore syringe or what have you) if it doesn't work, which is why I suggest just trying a few jars first to see if they are viable. But if the problem is that the jars were hot and you have a good lid tek then you might be able to get away with re-innoculating the jars just as if the first knock never happened. Of course you must continue to use sterile procedures but you knew that....

Yup, I would hit them again to be sure before I tossed them, but I have plenty of spore solution.
