Question about Sterilization
    #3196095 - 09/29/04 04:56 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys, I read the FAQ and didnt see this in there, so heres my question! Do you leave the aluminum foil on the lids of the jars when you put them in the pressure cooker?  I'm using the "simple cubensis growing technique" Also, when they say "Carefully wipe clean the exposed inner wall of the jar and the rim", what do they want you to wipe it clean with? Just a cloth or something like an alcohol swab? Does it really affect the results if its not wiped clean?

And as for the contamination box, which I plan on using, I was wondering a good way to make sure that its clean before i put the sterilized jars and spores in there. Is it safe to spray the entire inside of the box with an aerosol can of lysol beforehand or would that contaminate the jars?

After inoculation, do I put the aluminum foil back onto the lid of the jars?

Sorry if these seem like real stupid questions, but Ive been reading about this stuff for days now and Im really trying to get some positive results, so when I dont understand something I feel like you guys would be the best people to clarify it for me. Thanks :smile:

all they mean by wipe it clean is to make sure there is no brf+verm mix on the rim of the jar... i just use a wet paper towel, i figure you don't need to be too sterile before pc'ing them... even if you put contams in there on this step, they will be removed later

and for the aluminum foil on the jars, i don't think it matters, but i always leave it on (but im not really that experianced)

Yes, loosely. The jars need to "breath".

>Sorry if these seem like real stupid questions
Not at all, one can see that you were doing your homework.
Good luck!
