PC vs Boil Question
    #3147264 - 09/17/04 08:49 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

So, I plan on trying out some of that alien substrate that I mentioned in my last post.  I'm just wondering though, someone mentioned in another post that you CAN'T boil grain jars, that you need to PC them.

Is this true?

I can't boil my  alien substrate  jars to sterilize them?

Incase you need to know, the ingredients are as follows:

3/4 cup of quinoa (health food store)        NOT GROUND UP
3/4 cup long grain brown rice (grocery store) NOT GROUND UP
3 cups spring water
1 1/2 cups vermiculite (Wal-Mart)
1/4 cup finch seed (measured before grinding)
1/8 cup flax seed (measured before grinding)

Anyway, thanks for help in advance.

3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

That post was absolutely correct, you'll be riddled with contams if you try to boil it to sterilize. If money is a problem, you can get a pretty cheap one at wal-mart for like 23-30 bucks.

I appreciate the quick response.  I guess I'm making a trip up to Wally World tonight then after work.

This may sound really dumb considering i'm coming up with it very late at night/early in the morning, but has anyone tried sterilizing jars (probably BRF would be best) by placing the jars in a big container with water in it and then just microwaving it for a couple of minutes?

You don't want to put metal in a microwave. Not good. Makes sparks. Fire hazard. Many deaths.

George, I hate you. I'm trying to quit smoking cigarettes and I won't smoke anything until I've quit.

I wanna be high, too. Maybe I could make some cannabutter...
