I used it anyways, but is there anything I can do to prevent an outburst of contams? Anything I can do to treat the contams if they start? thank you

I was under the impression that you want to keep the temp around 170 to kill off "bad" (endospores??????) but leave the "good" ones. So I would assume that temps going in the 190's wouldn't cause an outburst of contams. But don't qoute me either, just a thought! Hope someone can answer you better!!! Good Luck!

I believe you wont actually get into any trouble until you go over 200,but since it is quite easy to go over the mark I always tell people not to let it get up to 185or so +. I think it just gives a little cushion so people will start to get paranoid at a temp that is actually a little lower than the failure level.

Everyones setup is different so it is a good idea to experiment a little with stabilizing the temp before you plop your sack into the water for pasteurization. (sack of substrate that is!)

Good Luck
MYKEY
