Tyvek with just ring and no lid = bad myth?
    #3255500 - 10/20/04 12:05 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Isn't the air-tight rubber seal that the lid provides on mason jars the whole reason we use mason jars in the first place? Sure, they say Tyvek is contam-proof, but, seriously?

I've had 2 out of 8 jars so far contam BAD with green mold with just tyvek under the ring. What's a good way to use both tyvek AND a lid?

my friend's dog just uses the tyvec and the ring with no contam problems. make sure you pressure cook for at least an hour.

there is usally glue under the tyvek which is used to hold it up maybe that is what is causing it to grow green mold. i took mine off and all my jars have no contams and this is my firs time growing.

I use Tyvek and bands only on my grain jars with no contams. proper sterilization is the key. :wink:

What kind of tyvek are you using? There are a few types of tyvec products. You need the tyvek tape, not plastic or cloth. I would have more then one sealing meathod if your using tyvek with comtams. Drill out your lids for polyfill wads. Then throw tyvek cloth or plastic over the lid assembely held with a rubberband. Then put your foil on top that.
