I just had a quick question actually. im using this tek
http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7919/pag/2

after you put the contents in the jars(before pressure cooking), do you place foil on the closed jar? or do you place it on top, then close up the jars.  The Tek says on top, but in soo many pictures, it looks like foil is underneath the jar lid.  Sorry for the newb question :rolleyes:

Thanks in advance.  :mushroom2:

I've recently learned from mistakes..

Are you using the jar's lid with holes? If not, you'll need the 2 layers (one of them double) of tin foil.

If you're using the lid, just crumple a layer or two of tin foil over the top before pressure cooking. People do it different ways, some place the lid band thing over the foil.

I bought jars, and drilled 4 holes on top. im guessing i just need to cover them with foil then with a closed jar?

The point of the tinfoil is to seal the jar from the PC so you do not change the water content of the substrate.

It should go disc > Tyvek(if you're so inclined)> band > 2 layers of tinfoil.
