First innoculation
    #1819237 - 08/16/03 06:07 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Smartest thing I did: use an electric mixer to blend & aerate the substrate.

Other smart things: used cloth surgical tape over the holes instead of foil, and shoved the needle through it instead of having to uncover anything. More tape can then be applied over the punctures.

Dumbest thing I did: put a washcloth on the bottom of the pressure cooker to prevent the bottoms of the jars from having direct contact with the hot metal. This worked in the regular pans I used, but in the pressure cooker it burned up. Carbon yuckiness resulted.

Other dumb thing: didn't have a lighter, and tried to use a candle to sterilize the needle. Damned carbon.

Biggest fear: contams

Second-biggest fear: Lysol-induced asphyxiation

Anyway, here's to hoping. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Heh. That pic is way old. I just like using the icon. Anyway, now that you mention it, I think I'm overdue for a new mohawk. This messy mussed look is over.

I'm preparing for my first PC use. If you cant use a washcloth, what should you do?
