Dumb PC question
    #1362091 - 03/10/03 07:36 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)


So, a friend of mine has been lurking around here for a month or so and finally decided to try his hand at fungi growing.  He is just stuck on one thing.  In all of the teks that he has read, it says to screw the jar lids on tightly and to cover them with tape/aluminum foil/whatever, and then to sterilize them in the pressure cooker.  His question is this:

If you put a completely sealed jar into a pressure cooker, won?t it crack?

Stupid question I know, but my friend isn?t the brightest of people.  :crazy:

Thank You

First off, if it says to put some foil on the jar it's because there is a whole in the lid for innoculation. Air will move around freely in there ao there is no way your jar will crack. If you don't put aluminium paper put the seal upside down and don't tighten it to much to permit air exchange during sterilisation. Theorically even if you tighten the lid with the seal in the right position it shouldn't crack since that is the normal way to do canned goods. Make sure you know how to work your PC though. Cheers!

people make jelly in completely sealed jars all the time, people underestimate the pressure that a glass jar can hold, if you want to find out for yourself, make 2 drano bombs, on with a 40 ounce plastic bottle, and one with a 40 ounce glass bottle, the glass will b 10x louder then the plastin, be carefull not to get a face full of glass though.
