Real newbish question...
    #3070277 - 08/30/04 07:26 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi all.. real newbish question here...Ok why does one turn over the jar lid so the rubber seal is facing up, wouldn't it seal better the other way around and be easier to poke the nail holes..or does it not make a difference?  Thanks alot for any replys :smile:

The whole "lid upside down" thing was a result of a vaccuum being created in the jars. If you didn't put any holes in your lid with tyvek or polyfil you would effectively "can" the substrate and when you open the jar to inocculate or do g2g you would get a bunch of contams sucked in when the pressure equalized. So to make this long story short,as long as you are using a filter of some sort you can put the seal down if you want.
