PC'ing after contam?
    #1585245 - 05/28/03 04:12 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I had 2 dozen jars to innoculate. 9 of them didn't get PC'd right away and got contam. I decided to PC and innoculate anyway. Should produce some interesting results, or nothing at all. Anyone ever done this?

Now you'll se how good your PC is.

there might be more spores in there that survived your PC.

PC it one day, then let it cool, and PC the next, and let it cool, and then PC the third and let it cool. That should kill all endospores and junk.

Contams also produce toxins that aren't removed by PC'ng. Sterilization only kills living things, it does not remove toxic contaminants. I wouldn't eat anything from that jar.

You're half right about that. I think only a couple of toxins (both from bacterial origin) can survive Pcing for 45 minutes. Molecular structures can be changed by heat, so it's not killing but destroying, breaking down or neutralizing the toxin molecule.
Note that the lecture i have about the toxins above only refers a situation with boiling for an hour (not PCing) and being heat resistant.
