How do _you_ steam sterilize PF Jars? (Pot+water)
    #3464212 - 12/08/04 01:28 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

Yesterday, I sterilized 8 jars by boiling them in a pot of water for an hour, with the water an inch from the top to half way full at almost all times. I read in a tek that the water should be 1 inch from the bottom of the pot, but it seems to me that this would evaporate rather quickly.

Question 1: How much water do you use?
Question 2: What setting do you put your stove on? (I used the highest setting the entire time)

you want the pot covered with tight fitting lid, you want a boil that is not violent, just a calm slow boil. you have to find the right setting on your stove. water goes a little over half way up jars, the way i understand it.

1) Get pot
2) Put wash cloth on bottom of pan
3) Put jars in pan
4) Fill the pan up until about 2/5 to 1/2 of the jars are covered in water
5) Bring to slow boil
6) Maintain heat, put tight lid on pan, allow to continue the boil for 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes
7) Turn heat off, remove jars from pan, allow to cool longer than it takes for the outside of the jar to get to room temperature because the middle is usually still much warmer and can kill your spores.
8) Knock them up with spores, liquid myc, or grain to grain transfer after they are completely cooled down.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

my friends dog fills the pot up so that the water goes about an inch up the jars. he puts a thin dish cloth in the bottom of the pan to keep the jars from directly touching the hot metal. boils on medium-high for about 45 minutes. let cool on the shelf for a half hour than tosses em in the freezer for about 20 minutes. then he lets lets em warm up to room temp again for about 15 minutes on the shelf and then knocks the jars up. this method seems to work good and is alot better than waiting 5 hours for the jars to cool.
