Tyvek!

The only thing I've heard about tyvek is that you cant use coffee filters as a replacement. But what the hell is it for? I haven't seen it in any PF Tek videos or documents. Do I need it?

If you plan on doing grains you will eventually need tyvek or polyfill or filter disks.

Tyvek as I understand is a filter thing you put over your inoc holes on your colonization jars so that con tams have a smaller chance of getting inside and...contaminating.

Coffee filters have too big of pores to catch contams. As some put it, "Like trying to catch a mosquito with barbed wire".

Don't use them

Quite true. If you choose Tyvek like me [so far], read the lid tek in my sig.
