Condensation outside of lid prior to innoculation...problem?
    #2847662 - 07/01/04 04:19 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I PC'd my jars last night using the PF Tek for Simple Minds. I used the lids with four holes and a layer of aluminum foil wraped over the top and sides. I PC'd them for 1 hour and then let them cool and they stayed in the PC until just now (about 13 hours total). I then took them out of the PC and transferred them to a glove box and took off the foil.

The foil appears to have some condensation on the inside. The lids also have 2-3 small drops on them as well. My question is whether this is a contamination concern or not? Should I replace the foil? Wipe the lids dry? Just go with the flow? HELP!!!

I'm new here too but earlier there was a post regarding water drops. It's on the first page of the forums somewhere. It say's the drops are fine.

I saw that one but it seemed to be referring to drops IN the jars after/during growth.  Maybe it's the same either way.  Anyway, glad to see I'm not the only FNG around here :smile:

i don't think it will be a problem...as long as it isn't excessive looking. i would be worried about a visible saturation of the bottom of the jar though. that could invite contams or slow growth.
