Pressure cooker victims....PFJARS...! ! !
    #2779465 - 06/09/04 11:13 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

This guy has a problem with the substrate in PF jars becoming almost solid when sterilized.He uses the standard recipe when making his jars; which is 1/2 c VERM, 1/4 c BRF, and a little less then 1/4 c H2O. They are pressure cooked at 15 PSI for 30 minutes. Only a few jars fall victim in each batch so i do not think it is the formula or ingredients. As you may be able to see how the top shrinks a little and the shit inside looks solid. Has anyone ever experienced this problem before and what could be the causes?? I do use filter disks which i sandwich between the lid (upside down) to prevent sealing and the band.Could water be making its way into the jars?? :eek:

Are you putting alum. foil over the jars. I forgot once was that fucked. Won't do that again.

How much water are you puttting in the pressure cooker? You only need about an inch.Foil over the lid helps too.

also make sure you aren't packing the substrate in the jars, i use the pf formula also but i always have extra substrate left over. Just drop it in there lightly.
