A question I can't get answered.
    #1479090 - 04/21/03 03:10 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Is tyvek home wrap ok to use for jars?

What side do you use?

Do you combine it with anything else?

My pet prarie dog used it the last couple batches. Some print up,some down,didnt seem to matter.
He must have cooked up at least 20 jars,and had no contams with the Tyvek.He was using stuff from USPS (free). I am not sure,but it seems like the housewrap stuff might be thicker.

Print side out . It does matter , the stuff used to build homes is a moisture barrier , one side resists water , the other alllows for some air flow to prevent mold from growing in walls .

ok i got a hundred of those envelopes but, you put the tyvek ontop of the verm barrier right? why the hell would i want to filter air to .3 microns, only to put big holes in it with a syringe. also the holes would line up with the ones in the lids. seems pointless to me. or do you put it on after inoculation? i never had a contam in jars so i'm not that concerned, just curious how ya'll use it.

Wouldn't it need both sides to be equally permeable to have adequate air exchange?

Cause if air could get in, but couldn't displace what was already in there (due to gaseous impermeability), wouldn't that be a problem?

It'd be like trying to blow more air into a pop bottle.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. In fact, dude got a bunch of filter bags recently, and I would swear the filters were on backwards. Air could be sucked through the filter out of the bag, but no air could be sucked in. Dude tried some of the bags inside out, but either way, he is having a tough time getting them to work. Out of the 20 or so that he has tried, 12 had small holes upon taking out of the pc. From the other eight, only one made it all of the way. The rest contaminated (either green mold or bacteria). I hope that it is something he is doing wrong. That way, it can eventually be fixed through trial and error.
