how long to sterilized jars last?
    #3339795 - 11/10/04 02:59 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

About 5 months ago my elephant sterilized 6 quart jars of popcorn with his PC to start a grow op. The plan didn't happen because of roommate problems (solved that one, thank ya very much ), and now he's planning on doing some invitro growing for the hell of it. He's was wondering how long well-kept sterilized jars of popcorn will stay good? If they're still good (he'll have a look tomorrow, haven't opened to check for sterility), he's gonna be growing some Puerto Rican strain cubies! If not, then he'll just wither in sorrow...or sterilize some more jars, hehe. Peace

One more thing, how would i go about making sure these jars are sterile enough to inject spores into after sitting in a cooler for so long? I will use a glovebox to inoculate. Thanks

If they weren't sterile, there would be sh!t growing in them. So that alone will tell you if they're sterile or not.

Ok, they seem very well and the same as when i sterilized them. I'm going to wash out a cooler with bleach water and disinfectant spray and inoculate tonight. I will have pictures as soon as myc starts growing!

Generally a week or two is the rule of thumb. :wink: Try to be ready to innoc what's coming out of your PC ASAP.

What kinda lid you got on those jars? I've never used popcorn, but whole grains can be tough to get the water level just so.

As long as they're not stinky, really, you should be fine. :smile:

I just have regular canning lid jars on them, then 2 layers of foil over those taped down, then bubblewrap on each one. Attempting to find the right space to put the cooler right now, this is a toughy.

After inoculation, are the jars very susceptible to contamination if they're in a cooler in a fairly clean closet?

jars are pretty safe inside the jars, provided your sterilization and inoculation of jars were good. But take no chances. Sterilize the cooler(I hope it's not cool in there. 82-86F is what you should have) and keep it closed.

But just to recap, it's reasonably safe how you have it.
