How long can sterilized jars sit w/ out use?
    #2368545 - 02/22/04 05:54 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

My friend has a few jars he steam sterilized a week back. he Hasnt innoced yet cause hes waiting for some B+ spores to arrive. Should he re-sterilize these jars? Or are they ok to innoc? They have polyfill in all of the holes except the small hole he was going to use for innoculation. Thanks!

If you use grains with a PC then you'll be all good. You could wait two weeks with no problems, however it's best to inoculate ASAP . I waited about 3 weeks with a jar of popcorn and its did just fine. I waited about 5 or 6 weeks once with jars of popcorn and had a contam in every jar. Popcorn is also less resistant to contams than WBS.

my 2 cents
