What should I use for this sterilization?
    #1557154 - 05/18/03 01:30 AM (15 years, 12 days ago)

I am going to be starting 12 corn jars with Mazatapec spores. I don't have a pressure cooker so I'm going to steam sterilize the jars, what time of pot should I use for this? I've got one that's typically used for cooking lobsters, do you think I could just put an inch of water in the pot and let it steam the jars? Gimme some tips please.

This is my first post but I have been browsing here for a year now. You not only need to steam the jars, you have to boil them too. Fill the water up until it is just under the rim of the jar, make sure the lid of the pot fits over so you can also keep the steam in. I advise you to put a cloth or cooking tray at the bottom of the pot to prevent the bottom of your jars burning to. Hope I helped a little.

I had no success with grians before I got a PC. And don't know of too many people that have.

Yeah, I should have mentioned that I think you definitely need a Pressure Cooker as grains are way more open to contamination compared to other substrates.

A pressure cooker is the way to go on grains but i've heard stories of successful steam sterilization, usually it involved soaking like normal but you have to go through the same steam sterilization process like 3 or more times over the course of a few days. Might want to research it a little more before trying it out, save ya time.
