I was a bit careless when mixing my substrate and filling my jars in regards to sterilizing my work area and myself. I was just wondering if I should start over and be more careful when preparing the substrate or if that even matters. I don?t mean to sound lazy or something, but when using a pressure cooker to sterilize the substrate aren?t you pretty much guaranteed a germ-free jar right out of the PC? I remember reading somewhere that if you are using a PC to sterilize that you don?t really have to be careful when mixing the ingredients, of course, it wouldn?t hurt though. Is this correct?

After I?m done sterilizing I will be much, much, much more careful when inoculating, dunking, and birthing. I just don?t want to go ahead and inoculate some dirty substrate!

Thanks a bunch!

I don't think you can ever be to clean imo. It would be a shame to have to go through all that work again, just because you weren't clean enough.

You can't be "sterile" at home, it's next to impossible.
