does a cigarette lighter leave "dangerous" residue on the needle after heating up the syringe? is a alcohol flame really needed?

I havn't used a flame yet! I squeeze a "small" amount of water out the tip to clean anything that might be inside the tip. Then I wipe down with a guaze pad soaked with 92% alcohol and then wipe between inoculation of each jar. I havn't had 1 contam out of about 40-50 pint jars. Some WBS, some BRF/Verm.

Maybe I'm just Lucky!

if you hold the needle just above the flame (as opposed to in it) it will not accumulate any carbon residue.
