tinfoil on jars..
    #2960045 - 08/03/04 02:05 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

does the foil need to be left over the jars until fully colonized or can it be taken off when about 50 % colonized? i hear different things like the foil to to keep moisture out when pc/boiling jars, or that it is to keep contams out when incubating?

take it off after u innoculate. thats what the layer of verm is for. plus youll kill ur gas exchange if u leave it on.

A FOAF leaves the foil there the whole time and doesn't use tape.

He also recycles the foil and uses it time and time again.

The foil keeps contams out.

I don't know what it does in the PC besides that I'd rather the foil be sterile also.

I have to disagree here, leave it on untill 100% colonised, if its
held on with an elastic band, or lightly sueezed on, then theres plenty of air exchange.

I find the gas exchange is fine when the foil is on the top.

My philosophy is leave it on unless there is some stalling.

i'd say to leave it on at least until the jars are 50% done.
