boil sterilizing....
    #1215013 - 01/13/03 04:32 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I was reading through the Simple Cubensis Growing Technique that I found on this site. It said to poke as many holes as needed in the cap then sterilize the jars. Won't the jars get filled with steam and dry out the cakes? Or is it good that steam gets into the jars to sterilize better? Also should the cap be on tight or little bit lose?

A bit loose or air tight, your preferance. Make sure you wrap the top with tin foil.

I'd think you'd wanna keep the holes down to at least 5 (4 corners, 1 middle). You won't have to worry about excess water if you cover your jars with foil or tape (like 6C said).
