rusted jar tops reusable?
    #3182427 - 09/26/04 02:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

7 pf jars were to be made over because last time there was no colonization in the batch for nearly 2 weeks. Sooo, the tops of the jars were observed to have rust around the holes and a small portion underneath the lid. I threw them away, but, is rust bad enough to not use the jar lids next time (for future reference)?

I've had no real problem....until the rust starts to compromise the lid integrity.

There's plastic jar lids out there....those look worth buying.

Afoaf has used VERY rusty lids over and over with no problems.
However he has also used the plastic lids. He always complained about them staying tight. Everytime the pc is opened 30% of the lids have come loose and he has even tightened them with a bandwrench before pc'ing to no avail. So he went back to his rusty ass metal lids.

rust is the metal oxidizing... i don't imagine that it should cause any real harm...

Rust is not a problem as you can see the mycelium will even grow through a rusty lid/tyvek and polyfill.



:cool: :thumbup:
