Error With Steam Sterlization
    #2989332 - 08/11/04 03:21 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Was sterlizing my PF Verm/BFL in a pot on top of a rag (as so the heat doesnt crack the jars) with boiling water.... well I had tin foil lids on my jars and upon the sterlization the bubbling of the water forced a lid or two off giving water some access into the pf tek jar (wetting it) this did not worry me so much since the water being boiled was being sterlizied and I know mushroom thrives on water but i fear maybe now this will cause problems with innoculation, so i am hesitant and come for your advice please.

My statistical assumption is that chemical tapering should begin when the rate of visiting ODD exceeds the rate of visiting Pub, or any other Shroomery forum.

If it?s just a little water, you don?t need to worry too much as long as water content, probably the verm barrier did absorb it. If too much water did get in, the water/substrate ratio is fucked up so IMO, I wouldn?t inoc. those jars.
Sterility is what would worry me, you said it?s sterilized water, but you know a pot is a pot and I don?t trust the sterility of a pot, even if you leave the water boiling for 1 hour. But you know, that?s me  :cool:
