Sterilizing Pint Jars
    #2197037 - 12/23/03 02:32 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Is it fine to sterilize BRF full pint jars using the boiling method (as opposed to a PC)? I used half pint jars last time and it worked fine, but was wondering if the step up to full pint jars would make a difference. I'm probably moving soon and would rather not invest in a PC since it would only be used for a short time.

and one more question, on my fourth flush last grow, after i dunked and rolled, i suddenly got that cobweb mold on the cakes. is that usually due to inadequate air movement, too much humidity, or just contamination?

Thanks a lot

You should have the same or better results from boiling pints (my friend noticed better). And for your last grow, my friend also noticed that after several flushes his cakes sometimes become infected with a contam, and he just takes it as normal from the myc getting weaker over several flushes.

Yep! Old myc gets a little tired and eventually gives in.

But lots of fresh air is still your best defense.

I'm so ready to start growing. I've shroomed twice and loved it to no extent. --Mindgames
