filter question
    #3070779 - 08/30/04 09:42 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

When using tyvek filter tops I have noticed that the substrate in my jars begins to dry out very quickly. I now am going to try coffee pot filters insted of tyvek. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for keeping the substrate in the jars from drying out?

Tyvek micron ratings are about 5......an average coffee filter is over 10.......you do the math on dehydration.........

good luck

Coffee filters filter coffee not contams. Tyvek all the way. If your not soaking and simmering your jars and just adding water then that is your problem. I dont think tyvek is it.
