sterile water question
    #1695516 - 07/08/03 05:24 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

is the distilled water bought from stores in jugs sterile? like for use in perlite humidification, cakes, dunking, casing? i know boiling water sterilizes it, but how long would you have to microwave a water/verm casing layer to sterilize it?

No need to sterilize water for humidification.

Cakes are sterilized when you PC them.

Never heard of using sterile water for dunking, but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt.

Casings need to be sterilized any way.

it is not guaranteed sterile but is usually clean. you dont need to sterilize casings, some say it is better not to as they can contain beneficial bacteria

to pasteurize: moisten your casing material to field capacity (just before it is dripping wet). place in an airtight microwavable container and nuke for 10 minutes on high. if you want you can stir it up at the 5-min mark. use clean hands and sterile technique.
