Storing non-sterilized jars of substrate
    #2086992 - 11/09/03 07:48 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

A friend of mine has a question that has been bothering him. He just recently prepared some substrate of verm, brown rice flour, and water. He has all jars prepared with the substrate and was ready to sterilize them with his pressure cooker but it is now nonfunctioning. Well the cakes be OK if left in a cold dark place for a few days till he sterilizes. He's thinking of using a fridge or freezer to keep them chilled to prevent bacteria from forming. He mentioned that he will be buying a new cooker in 2 days time.

What do you recommend I tell him?

No.
Boil them now for at least 90 minutes if you don?t have a functioning PC.

the fridge may stop bacteria but i dont know. i left unsterilized jars in a dark place for a bit while waiting for my spores to arrive and when i looked at them last, the middles of the jars were covered in white stuff (looked sorta like micelium) and the tops and bottoms were host to some green shit. i say go with what anno said and boil them to pre-sterilize them

My friend wanted to send a thanks for the advice.
By the way he looked over the jars before boiling them and
didn't see any forms of contamination, and no funny smells.
He mentioned he hopes for the best but knows he doesn't have
perfect conditions. He's thinking he might prepare another
few jars just cause.
