If I just Pressure cook some jars w/WBS in them with out poking any holes in the top how long will they stay good for? Or would it be better if I just P.C. them and immediately innoculate them?

I've pc'ed a jar ( with holes ) had it sit on a shelf for over 4 months... transfered some colonized grain to it and it's 100% done in 10 days.

Sure.. it will work.

I dont know if its a good idea not to poke any holes in them, if you dont then at least make the lids loose, it may explode if you dont.

no.. don't worry about the exploding part.. but the lids will seal if you put the rubber side down.. flip the lid or use plastic lids.. I"d recommend making holes with polyfill.. even if you are going to keep them for a bit. just make sure to cover them and seal them so they don't dry out on you!

Afoaf of mine didnt make holes in his and just kept them loosely on, and even then the lids bulged at least half an inch, i dont think itd be worth the risk, it wouldnt hurt though to make the holes.

You want holes in the lids, for gas exchange. Using sterilized grain spawn jars ASAP is wise, the sooner the better.

Any sterilized nutriant is a contam feeding ground, waiting to happen. The longer you wait, the larger the chance it will happen, IMHO.
