is aluminum foil sufficient to cover a jar?
    #2922169 - 07/23/04 11:04 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

i was so happy to see my first jar moving along so well (nearly 50% after 5 days, at room temp none the less) and then.. BAM! it was contaminated by nasty green mold. i used aluminum foil as a lid and i'm wondering if this was a good idea or not? or could it be that i boiled the jar for to short a time period (1 hour)?

man you need to cover that jar with a real lid. get some plastic lids for storing jam jars. drill a 1 inch hole init and silicon some tyvek or run some polyfill through a small hole in a metal lid. this should be covered in the pftek if thats what your using. tin foil is mainly used to keep moisture from enter the jar during PC. the foil is used afterwards to keep stuff from getting to the filter and possible harboring mold. do some searching to find a tek on lids that best suit your needs. just plain tin foil is just asking for problems.

good luck and read read read.

from experience, if you have a pretty sanitary environment, a foil cover and boiliing for an hour is sufficient. but to be sure, a nice long boil or pressure cooking and a regular lid is good.

i use foil.
