Possible to make 1/2 seal with anything other than verm?
    #1400617 - 03/22/03 02:11 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hey, SWIM was just mixing up a batch of BRF/verm cake substrate, and stupidly he used all his verm, he forgot about saving some for the verm barrier. It's a bit of a drive to the nearest verm supplier, so he was wondering if there are any other things he could use instead. (perlite? unkooked grains? Maybe a combo of popcorn kernels with a tin foil barrier?) Any ideas?

i did the saaaaaame thing once. i tried this out and it worked fine: take 3 coffee filters and put them over the top of the jar. put the lid on so that the jagged metal parts from where you punched the holes in it face up. then put the band on it. tape the holes. tear off the excess coffee filter from around the edges. sterilize. inoculate by piercing the needle through the tape and the coffee filters at each hole. then loosen the band and spin the lid 1/8 of a turn so that the holes in the lid no longer line up with the holes in the filter. i did that and it worked ok. they actually colonized faster than verm seal jars.

If you have any of that polyfill stuff it works in a pinch.

Put heavy duty foil across the top of the jar.Poke a few holes around the middle with a needle,not to close to each other but not around the edge.Put polyfil across the top.Put foil over the top,past the lid threads.Pull the foil tightly and screw a band over the foil.Poke less holes in the top for air exchange.Cover the top with foil or coffee filters to keep water from the polyfil.When you heat a needle and poke it fast enough it will melt its way in.Wait a few minutes to cool then squirt away.After you pull it out poke the polyfil hole to cover the burned hole.Verm is good for casing,and cakes are good for nothing.
