Rust introducing contams?
    #3282683 - 10/27/04 03:12 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Crap. So I just got done casing my WBS jars. Two 1/2 pints per casing. Anyways, I was cleaning up the jars and the lids, throwing away the tyvek. When I made the jars I tried to punch a hole on one of the lids and the nail slid across and gouged some of the metal. So when I took the tyvek off of that lid I noticed there was some rust on it, and a tiny tiny bit reached the other side of the tyvek. The jar was only 3/4's full of WBS, so I don't think the mycelium was in contact with it a lot, if at all.
So my question is, will this rust contaminate the casing I just made with it?

Unless the rust had a contaminate on it, you should be fine. Alot of jar lids get rusty after you use them for a while. You'll just have to wait and see, and I'd get new lids as well.

Rust is fine and doesn't harbor contaminants. Nor do you need to get new lids. Worry not.

just an idea... if you don't like the rust you can get this stuff at Lowes and probably at Home Depot in the spray paint section called "Plasti-Dip" It looks like a spraypaint but its like spray on plastic.  You can buy it in tons of different colors and my friends and I use it to label different strains with different colors, etc, it works really well... i mean if rust bothers you! :smile: Just a thought... hope someone finds it useful.
