Popcorn contams, me blames tyvec
    #2328715 - 02/13/04 12:29 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I made up a dozen jars of popcorn about 2 weeks ago with pieces of tyvec for lids to see if they would keep, and guess what. out of twelve, 5 of them have clear signs of contamination. They were PC'd for an hour at 15 lbs and like the title says I blame the tyvec.

They all contaminated on the top first is the main reason I blame the tyvec, or at least the seals. Something got in after they were completely sterilized.

My friend has had similar results w/ popcorn and tyvec. What did your contams look like? My friends looked like the popcorn was growing grey hairs.

tyvec compaired to the layer of verm in a pf style cake is worthless. every time i have used tyvec in bulk grain inoculations i have had major loses compaired to almost no loses with pf style jars employing the 1/4 - 1/2 layer of verm.

Yeah that is the difference in PF style cakes and bulk grains I would guess. My friend finds grains much more fufilling than anything pf style.
