Filter question concerning 6T WBS Tek (Wild Bird Seed) Bulk
    #1741054 - 07/23/03 02:21 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Alright, concerning filter discs with this Tek...
Would it be possible to use coffee filters of some kind in place of filter discs when PC'ing the jars? Or can some other kind of house hold item be used?

Right now I simply have no filter discs, or money to afford them (I start working again in a week).

Tyvek is far superior to coffee filters and it's free



These pics show the FedEx envelope but the USPS has the same stuff

The wise one himself (6T) says you can use coffee filters rubberbanded over the lid to act as a barrier that reduces or prevents contams from entering the colonizing jar . You can also put 3m MICROPORE tape over the holes in the lid to act as a filter , air exchanger .

Tyvek and polyfil both work well. My friend prefers polyfil simply because he has enough on hand to last him for years.  :cool:

IMO, coffee filters are too porous to get consistently good results when used alone.

This is a great question!!! The answer simply is YES you can use it. There are better materials out there but you can use coffee filters. Unfortunately Pat has a LOT of experience with contams and she would suggest the polyfil or tyvek

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23619

Read carefully Tripindicular... Tyvek is placed between the lid and jar. The coffee filters is "added" protection. 6T refers to it as a "dust cover" But the Tyvek is the real filter

Interesting.. so FedEx isnt using paper packages eh?
Heh, anyways, thanks for the responses..

Polyfil sounds interesting if I cant see myself getting my hands on a package. Any ideas where I can get some?

Check hobby and craft stores, or sewing supply stores. It's used as a stuffing for pillows, etc..

Wal Mart sells big bags of polyfill for about $3 that will last you forever.

I used one coffee filter between lid and jar, one between lid and outer ring, and two over the lid and ring held on with rubberbands around the neck. No contams so far after 8 days. Just sweet white fuzzyness.

you can find 9"x16" tyvek envelopes from staples. When cutting the envelopes, cut off the parts with glue b/c it'll get hot and stick to your jars inside the PC.
