How do I sterilize my casing?
    #1591629 - 05/30/03 12:49 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I prepared a 60/40 casing then put it in a microwave safe container, covered with plastic wrap, and nuked for 5 minutes. When i took it out, all the water had evaporated away and it was completely dry. Do i need a tupperware container that will seal to do this? Will the steam cause the lid to blow off?

I dont remember ever sterilizing my casings, just pasteurizing.

Microwave ovens do not sterilize.

And you should be pasteurizing the casing layer material, not sterilizing it.

And a 60/40 mix of what exactly are you using?
