2 noob Questions regarding PC and Coolmist ;)
    #3328199 - 11/06/04 06:44 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I'm about to PC my jars and I was wondering if it would be ok to use the boiling water method and then also PC them so I could be sure of no contams. :rolleyes:

And second, I've been interested in buying a Vicks Coolmist for my terranium and I've seen 2 different pictures, so I was wondering if you guys could tell me which one looks correct.. Thanks!

Just PC at 15 psi for 1 hour or a little longer. Use that other pot for pasteurizing.

As for #2 just make sure it does NOT have a wick or says anything about a wick.

hmm ok. I PC'd my jars already and let them sit overnight to cool.. Planning to inoculate them in a couple hours.

Can anyone with a Vicks Coolmist possibly shed some more light on #2?

Thanks. :smile:

The first humidifier is the wick type "evaporative" humidifier...it uses an absorbent pad to draw up moisture which is evaporated by fan-blown air. The second is the cool mist type, where water is drawn up through a tube into an impeller blade which "vaporises" the water into a mist. Number one is not what you want...wick type, evaporative, both are no good IMHO. The cool mist (#2) is the one you want...
