Did I contaminate?
    #1257631 - 01/29/03 07:30 AM (18 years, 1 month ago)

A few days ago, I prepared my substrate, packed my jars, and sterilized in a PC. My lids were loose and covered with tin foil as directed in PF Tek. After sterilizing, I was concerned that water may have bubbled up and entered my jars. I briefly removed the lids on a couple of the jars for inspection. The vermiculite on top of the substrate appeared to be moist. It wasn't overly saturated, however, leading me to believe this could have just been from the steam. Is this correct or did water get into my jars? What are the chances that I contaminated those jars by removing the lids? I was in a fairly clean room with no draft and the lids were only off for a few seconds. Could they be resterilized by putting them back in the PC or should I just throw them out? Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
A Newbie

If i was you id sterilize some verm and then turn your oven on and put each jar infront of the oven and dump the verm out into a trash can and then add the new sterilized verm on top of the substrate and re screw the lid and wait to cool. Or try to dry the verm thats already in the jar in front of the oven to dry it out and scare contams away. THATS JUST MY IDEA

Chances are High.
They aren't sterile anymore.
