Tyvek Grain Lids
    #15000035 - 08/30/11 02:55 AM (9 years, 8 months ago)

Okay so i have quart sized canning jars and i have many
100% tyvek envelops. I do not own a drill and i was going
to buy some sort of punch to make the holes. I'm also planning on buying silicone. I just have a few question's.

Should i put the tyvek on top of lid or bottom?

What size hole should i make for GE so i wont dry out my grain?

Should i make 1 hole for GE and one for inoculation?

Do i only cover with one layer of tyvek?

What you should do is look up lid teks.

You don't make lids out of tyvek.  In addition, envelopes are a piss-poor filter because the pore size changes in the sterilizer.  Get a drill.

If you are using canning jars with mason style lids, I would put it on top of the lid with the band over the tyvek so it is on the outside of the jar so it doesn't get moist allowing contams to colonize.

Currently I am using bootleg lids on 1pint/half quart jars, they have one 8mm hole, this is pretty big. IME the size of the hole doesn't need to be exact, but others may say otherwise. I've seen 4 1mm holes on larger mason jars. You can pull that off with a nail and hammer.

I only use one, in addition I use polyfil although both aren't necessary. The setup I have seems to work perfectly. Your best off getting filter disks though.
