i have a really simple question.  if im using PF tek using BRF and vermiculite.  would it be safe to bake this in an oven for sterilization? would the jar, lid, and foil have any problem with being baked? 

just asking to be sure.

this is what thisspock told me:
Quote:


Hey I used that for my first cultivation. Just make sure you steralize it(vermiculite) in an oven first! I used it and just used a pressure cooker and I ended up with what looked like meal worms eating their way out of my cakes and casings!!! If you bake it for liek 25 minutes in the oven at 375 or so it kills those sucker's eggs.



Hope it helps

sixcee.... your right :confused: I read it a few times and im confuesd. I thought he was saying b4 he PCed it. If you want to bake the verm, then bake it before you put the verm in the jars  with the BRF. THEN PC it.

thanks NTTG.  i saw that quote that trippinspinners said in another thread and i thought maybe PCing wasnt good enough for PF jars or something like that.  i guess i was being a lil paranoid but i wanna make sure this project goes well :smile:

thanks for the help

Using ovens for sterilization is neither here nor there. Some people swear by it while others deplore it. It's really a matter of opinion, but if you are that concerned about sterility then microwave the soaked vermiculite for 5 minutes on high before pressure cooking it.
