Re-sterilize syringe between each quart jar?
    #1781337 - 08/05/03 01:02 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Should my buddy re-sterilize the syringe he is using after he innoculates a single quart jar? (innoculate --> sterilize --> innoculate --> sterilize --> etc.)

My friend wipes the needle with an alcohol saturated pad between jars. Works for him.

it wouldn't hurt. instead of flame sterilizing every time try using just a lint-free cloth soaked in alcohol. that way you won't kill spores in the needle that haven't been exposed to air.

when you flame steralize the needle, everything that is in the needle at that time is killed including the spores.

Everything in the syringe that is not in the metal needle is left untouched. the metal needle is connected the syringe with a plastic fitting so flaming it doesnt harm the contents of the syringe.

I flame and then I dunk in alochol, give it a little dripity drip (let that alochol drip out or it will kill the spores).

always wait a few seconds before putting into jars after flame because dunking or wiping will cool it down but sometimes not enough,.
