Proper way to sterilize syringe?
    #3253803 - 10/20/04 12:02 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

What would the proper way be to sterilize some water in a syringe?

Fill it up, put it in a jar with the needle facing upwards, PC for 20 minutes?

Anything else I should know?

You've got it pretty much

you can either wrap it in tin foil and boil it or pc.

boil some water, suck up, squirt into sink a number of times
the final time leave it and cook

Can I just put the syringe in with the jars i'm about to do? I don't want to run the PC twice unless I have to.

What will happen if you sterilize it for an hour instead of 20 minutes?

I've read a number of times of people throwing a few syringes in with their jars. But, I never have, and I don't know how long the jars (or jars of what) were cooked. Try a search.

sure you can. Throw anything you need to sterilize in with your jars. Just make sure the plastic doesn't come in direct contact with hot metal on the bottom.

Well, scratch that. There's no room for the syringe, lol.

Even though my All American 7 quart pressure cooker was a steal at 23$, I do kinda wish I had a bigger one now. It can only hold 8 1/2 pints(the short stubby kind), or 3 quart jars at a time.. lol

You want the water in a seperate jar, the syringes in an empty jar (just to hold them) wrapped in foil preferably. PC for 15 minutes at 15 PSI. Suck up the sterile water with the sterile syringe when you need to use it. Water can sqirt out if you PC the syringe full of it. Will make it easier to fit in the PC as well..

I got 2 PCs off ebay for just over 50 bucks total (like 24 for one and 28 for the other I think). One holds 10 quart jars, the other holds 9 quart jars and a pint. The lid is just a little more bubbled so it wont fit 3 quarts on top.

I could've gotten a larger PC for only a little more, but I really wanted an All American style one, not one of the sh!tty(In my eyes) Mirro ones. I just like having the visual gauge for some reason. At the time I was looking, the larger AM PC's were going for 50 - 60+, and I didn't have that much at the time.

Both mine have visual guages, Burpee is one Magic Seal the other. Both very solid PC's. Stand up to 20 PSI when it accidently gets there :smile: Never went above either..just stayed there. Its all about ebay man..

Yeah, that's where I got mine.

I also wanted one that was self-sealing so I didn't have to deal with any gaskets.

I'll pick up a larger one eventually, this one is fine for now.. I'm not trying to turn my house into a giant wad of mycelium or anything.. yet.. lol
