Rusty lids

After drilling holes in these things, it takes no time for these things to rust. How do you combat it?

Easily, get a rust solvant. The best is to get new jars or lids.

Would painting or using some kind of sealer prevent it?

The rust won't hurt a thing.My jar lids are really rusty and the results are the same as if I had brand new lids VVV




As you can see the mycelium even grew through the rusty holes.So don't worry about them being rusty.Plus if they get too bad,you can go to Wal-Mart and buy replacement lids for a buck or two-alot cheaper than buying a can of Rust-o-leum.

Same here , had rusty lids after a few cooks (PF TEK). I just add a layer of tinfoil to the top of the jar after adding the dry verm , then fit the lid. I've had zero problems.

Rust really isn't an issue, but you can get away from it completely by using plastic lids (which only go bad after MANY resterilizations). At some point rust may get to the point where you need to replace the lids but even new "bands and domes" are pretty negligable considering the amount of use you can get out of them.
