Very simple(maybe stupid) PC question
    #2268429 - 01/24/04 04:19 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Alright i've got my PC but my jars are to large to go in right side up.  Can i just turn them on their sides and PC like that.  Or possibly get some kind of sloping rack to go sideways?  Thanks in advance  :thumbup:

dont tighten the lids all the way, no matter how badly u want to.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

They will be fine sideways, unless they become water-logged by the water boiling in the PC. You can cover any holes in the lid (for gas exchange) with aluminum foil to prevent this. Just be sure to protect them from filling with the water in the PC so that the water content of your jars in spot-on when it is time to innoculate.

I don't know for sure but but I think he can stab the polyfill. Did he purchase the $20 6 qt. presto from wal-mart? It does very well for small jars in my opinion.

Injecting through the polyfill works fine...just make sure the needle clears it. Make sure to cover your lids w/ foil before pc'ing. This guy I know had polyfill break loose from some lids and clog his vent pipe. Needles to say this had undesirable effects, namely the overpressure plug leaving the lid at its own chosen speed.

Yeah, inoculating through the polyfil hole will work just fine. I have found that wax paper is better at keeping the polyfil dry during the PC process than foil.

May not amount to much, but I like the idea of having dry polyfil, especially when inoculating through it.

Good point. How do you keep the paper on the jars?
