I left them in the covered pot overnight to cool, the aluminum foil and the dry layer of verm should keep it sterile inside the jars. Im new at this also but the 6 jars i left out show no signs of contams as of yet.

Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

I've said it before and I'll say it again...A simple little steamer from Wal-Mart is all you need for s t e r i l i z a t i o n. It sounds as if you have a pressure cooker already....great, but really just leave the cakes in a semi-safe place for a few hours and you'll be OK. No contaminants will bother your little guys, promise. W/ my steamer I can cook 3-4 bastards every 20 min or so. They only take 1 hour or 2 at most to cool. I'm not bragging but you seem to want quicker results and by the end of my evenings after s t e r i l i z a t i o n, I can still innoculate. But hey, I'm not using a pressure cooker and I'm considered a "stranger" here so, more power to ya!!!!

If all you are doing is "simple cakes" then all you need is a "simple little steamer from Wal-Mart". If your planning to s t e r i l i z e  w-h-o-l-e grains, your going to need a pressure cooker..... "stranger" :wink:

There is an important detail to prevent airborne contamination entering the jars. Take a clean plastic bag and spray the inner side with Lysol. Rub it from outside so the Lysol is evenly dispersed on the inner surface of the bag. When the sterilization time is over, wait a few minutes for the pressure to build down to ambient. Then take a clean, folded cloth or thick gloves, open the cooker and transfer the (burning hot!) jars to the bag. Roll the rest of the bag together, so you get it pretty airtight. As the hot air in the jars is cooling down and its volume decreases, fresh (contaminated!) air from outside is drawn in. This setup will accomplish that the contaminants from the air set down on the wet bag surface and don't come into the jars!

Thanx Anno for the info, I'll keep that in mind for the next time.
BTW I used a big ole pot with a large dish and 15lbs of weights on top to keep in the "stem".
