Confused, maybe because just woke up.
    #11296412 - 10/22/09 12:57 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

A question popped to my head.


Before you put jars in PC you put on the micro pore tape(on holes) then aluminium and to PC...

OK, so after the jars were pressure-cooked, you wait for them to cool and then you inoculate threw micro pore tape with whatever you have in your syringe.

So my question is:
Why putting a micro pore tape if you make hole in it with needle?
Or you put another layer after inoculation?

yeah if you're using just micropore tape you add another layer right after you pull the needle out.

if you're using grains you should look into making self healing lids so you don't have to worry about contams as much.. you just need some RTV silicone (whilch you can get at walmart for like 4 bucks)and an extra hole in your lid

when doing brf cakes i just left the holes open covered with foil and put the tape on after you dont even need tape really with cakes and the self healing lids are great for grains

As I am a newb, please correct me if I am wrong.
BUT
From what I understand,if you are using the PFtek BRF method, the layer of vermiculite on top is to create a filter layer to keep contams off.

So, I would assume that you could only use aluminum foil over the jars when in the PC and then remove them to inoculate, then set in your inc. chamber(just make sure your chamber is clean) and you will be ok.

Tons of people have been fine without using tape.

but if your worried about it you can go to walmart like MOPE said and get the good stuff for less than 5 bucks.

I used tape once. Horrible results so I decided to use the tape for its real purpose. Giant tape volleyballs. Waaaay better than stalling jars.

yeah, i guess im just overly cautious sometimes when it comes to sterility.  The only reason i would put tape on before the PC is because contams could get into that verm layer, and if you accidentally drop or shake the jar the verm could shake around and the contam could work its way down to the actual cake... :shrug: I know that it would work just fine without the tape before hand but like i said i get a lil paranoid aboot it haha

Tape is optional, yes, as long as you have a dry verm layer. 

It is nice to have when PC'ing for accidental water breaches.

I only use self-healing ports and grain though so no need for tape here.

Same, i haven't gotten one contam since i started using self healing lids with synthetic filter discs.  I love not having to peel micropore tape off all my lids anymore:thumbup:
