How long before innoculation can I sterilize my jars?
    #2027292 - 10/21/03 01:09 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I'm waiting for some quaility spores from Ralphster. I am new to this process and am very eager to put everything in motion. I've built a nice setup for myself and am just waiting for the spores to get things going. I was wondering if I could go ahead and sterilize my jars and then store them until I get my spore syringes or if I should wait until I get my syringes to sterilize my jars. This may sound like a stupid question but I want to have everything ready so that as soon as I get my spores I can get started. Will sterilized jars store properly? Should I refrigerate them? Am I an idiot? I'm just impatient, I guess.

Wait. I know its hard the first time, but you'll thank me later. Even though it shouldn't be a problem doing it before hand, you are just asking for possible contam. Like I said, wait, you don't want to waste good spores on bad jars.

It makes sense. I just have done all this work and am so hyped up about the project that I can't wait. Thanks for the advice though. I definitely don't want to F things up at this point.

i pc'd my first jars about 2 weeks before i got my first spores.
having them sit around for a while will show you if your sterilisation methods are 100%. if your jars sit for a week contam free,then contam after inoculation it's easier to pinpoint the contam vector.i always allow my PC'd jars to sit atleast 3 days prior to inoculation for this reason.

If you followed procedure in the sterilization process, you wouldn't have a problem either way. I've done it both ways, sterilized before and right when I was ready. The latter worked better. The former caused problems because after awhile, somehow the rice turned bad.
