Is The Lowest Boiling Temp For Sterilizing PF Tek Jars the Correct Boiling Temp?
    #11285429 - 10/20/09 06:13 PM (8 years, 5 days ago)

Right now I'm sterilizing jars in a stock pot, and the water is boiling at it's lowest possible boiling temp on the stove. Is this good, or should I increase the temp on the stove.

Also, if I posted a grow log, do you guys still check them out? Not sure if the shroomeries are tired of seeing grow logs yet.

Water boils at the same temp which is ~100C, it is the power you are increasing. With increased power you get more steam generated and so it can transfer heat better to the jars. You can test this effect with your hand, stick you hand over a simmering pot and the steam will not burn you much, stick it over a wildly boiling pot and you notice it far more. At the start you could have a good powerful boil, to get the jar up to temperature, then you can turn down the boil later.

If your jars are actually sitting in the water it will not make much difference.

As for growlogs I only bother with ones doing something unusual.

Increasing the temp might boil the water dry :o

* Depends where you are located at..

At standard pressure, the pressure of the earth's atmosphere at sea level, water boils at 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. At lower pressure, like at higher altitudes, water will boil before reaching 100 degrees Celsius while at higher pressure, like that inside a pressure cooker, it will take a higher temperature than 100 degrees Celsius to boil water.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

guess i gave a 1/2 assed response since i'm kinda doing homework...
but he did say he was using a normal pot and if he were in denver or some other city like that then hopefully he would all ready know to increase sterilization time.

It's like asking if i put an icecube tray in liquid nitrogen will the water in it freeze at something lower that 32°.

oddly enough we talked about phase diagrams in one of my classes today.
