Filter lids for grain help.
    #25823517 - 02/19/19 09:23 PM (2 years, 9 days ago)

Yo
I finally found myself a large sheet of tyvek. I got hella jar lids to make. I got plastic  white lids and also the metal ring ones they came with.
Should I just cut the tyvek and use metal ones or should I just tape down the tyvek or the holes?
I’m doing a few unmodded and just loosen it a tiny it.
What works best for y’all. Last time I used micro tape. But further reading made me feel dumb for using it haha. Any advice  is appreciated

I use a saudering  Iron to melt holes in the plastic lids. Super easy and fast.
I use High Temp RTV to secure the Tyvek.
I  also use RTV for Self healing ports. Just put paper on them so they dry flat.
I also slightly loosen the lids before Pressure cooking. To avoid cracked jars.

My first lids I just used the metal lids.  I drilled a hole in it and put the lid on, then a layer of polyfil, then the tyvek, then the ring to hold it all down.  Presto. 

If you’re planning to inject with a syringe I’d consider using injection ports. Frankly I don’t think it’s a good way to grow.  Use agar.

I have a few pasty plates I been working on.  No need for injection.
I been just dropping a wedge in them.
Also I do not have rtv silicon. I gotta work with what I got.

I like to use a normal metal ring with 2 1/4 inch holes (I use a hole punch to make them) and cover with two layers of Micropore tape, one piece on top side one on bottom side, if I really feel like it i add some polyfill then the micropore tape

I don’t have any polyfill at hand. And can’t rip up my pillow at the moment haha.
I may just try to tape down a layer of tyvek on some and leave the rest in modified
I really like dropping agar in the plastic one piece lids there much easier for me to open in my s. A. B.
Than it is for metal ringed ones.  Same wiith agar. I did a few in half pint jars and it’s just easier unscrewing a one piece for me.

If you Opt for the metal lids. Save you self A shit ton of time  and Energy by Putting the lid on a jar with A ring holding the lid. And use various size Phillips screw driver to just Punch a hole in it. I hated drilling into lids. Way more jagged and such a time waste.

Does nobody else just use a hole punch (like for paper) to punch holes in the metal lids? Its great it leaves no jagged edges

I've read about people doing that. It's not overthinking anything. If I had one, I'd give it a try. Drilling works fine and doesn't leave too ragged an edge if you use a piece of wood as a backer and a sharp drill bit.

I just use polyfil personally. Takes about 4 mins to do 12 lids

So this is what I’m doing. Taping down tyvek squares over the hole. I’m about to run my pc tonight.

If anything looks wrong please tell me I’m pretty sure this will work fine. 
I’m also doing the other half of my lids unmodded

Is that micropore tape? If so, you can tape right over the tyvek and hole. I've read that some people do layers: tyvek - mp tape - tyvek - mp tape, (so two layers of tyvek) and it works well for them

Yes it’s micro pore tape.
I wasn’t planning on covering it with mp tape but I may do a few like that. I’m just trying to find what is gonna work out for me the best.

I just figured you could use fewer pieces of tape that way :shrug:. i.e. cut the tyvek slightly smaller than the width of the tape, attach it to the tape, attach the tape to the lid. Repeat once, done.

Haven't tried it, but what you did seems fine to me

Ive never made hand-cut lids, but i have used pre-cut wide mouth synthetic fiber filters. I just put the filter disk on top the jar then tighten with the metal ring. Thats it :shrug:
