Water-Logged Jars--How'd this happen?!!!
    #3306583 - 11/01/04 10:09 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

When I put 8 out of my 10 jars in the PC, the water content was perfect. Now, I'd say 7 out of the 8 are almost completely water-logged inside. I had tin foil covering the top of the jars. How'd this happen? And, most important, how can I prevent it? They were so water-logged that when I went to dump them out, I had to scoop out the mixture--it wouldn't come out on its own. Ahh--this is bullshit. HELP!

Maybe water from the PC got inside?

Did you tape the holes before you PC them?

Well first off you don't need tape OK? :wink: Foil works just fine, but I need to ask how deep a water level you using in that there PC? 1in. is more than enough BTW :wink:

I'm gonna re-do them now. I'll tape the holes and use a little less water.

Was the foil placed on loosely? I have never had a problem like this, if you have a weighted regulator and let it giggle to much then this allows the water inside to boil excessively and could account for the moisture content being thrown off.

I placed the foil on as tight as possible; but I do have a weighted regulator. Will taping and using a little less water stop this from happening again?

Yes that (tape) will solve the immediate problem but you shouldn't of had that problem in the first place. What type PC and how many times a minute do you allow the weight to giggle? Most are 4 times a minute in order to maintain 15lbs. These are the 5-10-15lbs. round weights I'm talking now. :wink:

I have a Mirro 8qt PC. And it doesn't say anything about "jiggles per minute." It says once it starts to jiggle VIGOROUSLY, reduce the heat so it jiggles GENTLY.

Using tape worked. The jars aren't water-logged this time around. They are definitely a little wetter due to condensation, I'm sure, but I believe they are well within the correct moisture content.
