Sterilized the jars over a week ago

Should I resterilize them? I'm doing the PF tek, steam sterilized the jars for over an hour, but they've been sitting in a warm, humid environment for probably between 1 and 2 weeks now. I can't see anything growing on them, and I took the lids off of two of them to check and see if I could smell anything, they just smelled like vermiculite to me.

they should be fine...except that you opened them up to smell them (introduce possible contams). Once you sterilize a jar, it is good to go for a long long time. I'd resterilize the two you opened. the rest should be good to go.

Did you spray any lysol before smelling?

No, but I thought i had read somewhere that the vermiculite layer would protect against that. Anyway, I innoculated one last night, i'm going to let it go for a week and see what happens before i try anything with the other ones.

Resterilize the ones that you opened and checked up on. Better to be safe than sorry.
