PC'ing BRF 1/2 Pints
    #1546225 - 05/13/03 08:46 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I've heard a variety of ways/methods.

Some are 45min@10psi, and others are up to 60min@15psi.

I will be using metal lids+tape to seal holes+wrapped in aluminum foil.

^At least this is what the majority of people seem to have did, with good results. I would prefer to skip the aluminum foil, but I'm tired of contams and wasted time.

TIA.

I'll make you a little bet. I bet cakes at 45 min at 10 psi colonize faster then 1hr at 15 psi. Of course I don't know shit about jars.

Whats the reasoning behind this?

Take a look at your jars befor you put them into a pc for 1hr at 15 psi and then after and you'll know why. The more the color of the BRF changes the longer it's gonna take to colonize. The reason for the color change is that the BRF is carmalizing or cooking.

You want to make it easy on yourself. Just boil them for 1 hr. This works great for brf plenty of people here do it with much success.

Interesting, I remember reading on the PF website that they experimented with using gamma rays for sterilization of the PF jars, but the mycellium had too tough a time colonizing the substrate when it was sterilized like this. I guess what you have done Magash is found a safe, and effective middle ground good job dude :grin: :grin: :grin:

Question..

Do you just tape the holes on your metal lids and let em rip in the PC, or do you wrap the assembled jars/lids in something along the lines of saran wrap/alum. foil?

Thanks.

I make my jars in advance often times due to time constraints during some days of the week, and usually cooking at 15PSI for 20 minutes sterilizes PF jars ok. More isnt always better

tape... yes, foil over the jars to keep water out... sure, wrap in saran wrap... NO! That'll cause quite a mess (at least a 15 psi).
Pc your jars at too high a pressure for too long and your lookin' at a lot a water loss through evap. 30 min at 15 psi has never failed nor hurt my buddy's colonization times.
