Filters?
    #2647642 - 05/06/04 10:34 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hello, when making your jars do any of you use filters under the lid? If so when do you keep them on while sterilizing? Thx in advance!

A friend of mine has had plenty of success with just simply putting a double layer of coffee filters beneath the rubber ring part of the jar lid and screwing the lid on tight with rubber down. He then puts foil over the top and puts them into the pc. I think he has had maybe 1 in 20 jars contaminate using this method.(he does use the high quality cone type filters because they seem to be more sturdy)

Here is a little tip on cutting the coffee filters into discs that are the perfect size for putting under the lid.

Place the outer ring portion of the lid onto a stack of filters and trace a circle around it. Then just cut them out with scissors and your done. This will save you the tedious step of trimming the excess exposed filter when you are done. This is very important to do,by the way,because humid conditions within the inccubator may moisten the exposed part of the filter and turn it into a wick for contams to find there way into your jars. If you use the method I mentioned and carefully place the discs before screwing the lid on you wont have any filter exposed at all once your done!-----You still need the dry verm layer inside the jar. The filters add an extra layer of protection as well as preventing a vaccuum seal,but they cant be depended on the work by themselves.

Good Luck
MYKEY
