question about h2o
    #2556431 - 04/13/04 08:52 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i know this might not be the right place, but i figured the experienced people would know the answer best. I prepared pf style jars completely up to the stage of steaming. I didnt have time to do it and i had to go away for some days. 6 days later i get home and do it....the jars were left in a dark cool place, sealed tightly with tape over the holes...would they have lost h2o within this time and not work right?

As long as they were sealed up good the amount of water that could have escaped through the tape is insignifigant so you should be good to go!!!!!!

Toss that stuff. Sitting around for six days without any kind of sterilization would have been ample time for contams to take hold. I would really doubt steaming now would sterilize it enough.

i dunno, you could probably get away with keeping them, since the shit's floating around in the air from the get-go. its definitely in the bag of vermiculite. and probably even in the bag of BRF.

Why do we sterilize??? to kill these foreign particulates.
If you go ahead and sterilize the jars now, i'd say you have a pretty good chance of being ok. Especially since you had them in a dark, cool area.

BUT...I'm pretty new here, compared to @cro, so I'd listen to his advice and toss em. Verm and BRF are cheap, make up another batch.
