Rust on top of jars?
    #11403140 - 11/07/09 10:49 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

So after about a week the jars are showing signs of healthy white growth inside.  It is noticed on the micropore tape there is rust or a rust color/ brown/ orange.  Is this something I should be worried about and fix? inoculation was done through the tape and then left on, no additional tape was added.  Everything pf tek style.

What  Would  Jerry  Do?

If the rust is on the lid it won't hurt. Leave it alone until you birth the cakes to avoid unnecessary exposure to contams. My jars almost always get a tiny bit of rust on the inoculation whole where the bare metal meets the tape. It may rust on the screw grooves of the lids too.

No worries, wash/scrub it off after everything is out. :smile:

:thumbup: Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like? :mushroom2:
