    #1258298 - 01/29/03 11:16 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I dont have a PC so imma use a regular pot with the water up to 1/3 of the jars and the rag on bottem question is can i put tape over the holes and if so what kind of tape or do i just put tin foil around it really tight with a rubber band or will the heat break the rubber band?

I've had good results covering the holes with duct tape.  :smile:

Just wrap a layer of tin foil over it. If the foil rips a little add another layer.

You don't need a PC. Some people swear by it, but I have always gotten along well with a big pot and a wire vegetable steamer basket. I would not recommend setting the jars on the bottom of the pot, they might crack. I use high adhesive masking tape to tape my holes. I don't put the foil on tight, just so the water on the lid doesn't drop onto the jars. Hope this helps.

I've never taped my holes when doing BRF. Foil has always worked fine for me.

why do peeps say not to use the jars on the bottom.. is this just to prevent the jars from breaking or this will mess up the substrate..?

It might crack and/ or overdry substrate. I use paper towels on the bottom. Worked well for me.

h2o liquid temp will only reach 212*F unless under pressure, but the bottom of the pot could get much hotter .

The metal can get much hotter than 100.

Be careful with that rag on the bottom... It will burn, and it happens quickly! I was checking the water in my pot every 20, but it still started to burn when too much water evaporated. Bad stuff.
