Question about the holes in jar lids using rye
    #3381618 - 11/18/04 10:34 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I am using Magash rye tek, and I see that he suggests using 2 holes in the lid, 1 for inoculation and 1 for a breather.

In his illustration, it appears that breather hole is significantly larger than the other.

Any suggestions on how to make a larger hole? Is it even necessary?

Thanks in advance!

You would need a railroad stake to make the hole =)

A drill bit might work, but the hole appears to be quite larger than the inoc hole.

Easy. Make 4 holes with a standard nail, as close as possible to eachother. Now, put the nail back in each hole, and bend it around. If you made the holes close enough, they should start to break, making two holes side by side into one. Repeat on the other two, and you should have one large hole.

I really recommend using both the lid and tyvek.

Just jam a knife in the lid and give it a good twist.
