You mean a pf cake. Im not sure what you are saying but if its a pf cake yes you can re-boil your jars. It will be fine.

If thats not what your asking then I dont know.

Timmer!!
Yeah, you will be alright, but if you are boiling (not pressure cooking) I suggest 90 minutes. That's how long I did mine, and I have no contamination at all. Better safe than sorry, but yeah, just sterilize them again, I'm sure it will be alright.

You boil the cakes to (hopefully) kill any bacteria or fungus that may already be in the rice flour/vermiculite. This is necessary to ensure healthy and non-contaminated growth of the *good* fungus you will be putting in the jar. Boil the hell out of it, but make sure you let it cool to room temperature before injecting spores.

nonono just put several inches of water in the bottom of your pot and low boil that for 90 minutes with a tight lid on the pot. you want steam, not boiling water sloshing into the jars.

AFOAF bakes his verm and BRF at 300F for about 1 hour, just as an added precaution.Let it cool, make jars,and boil.
