poke holes in lid -or- 2 layer tinfoil ?

To me it would seem that covering your jars with two layers of pro grade aluminum foil, sterilizing, then removing 1 layer, poking 4 holes and replacing second layer of foil would be an improvement over poking holes in the lid of the jar, the only disadvantage i could imagine would be a slightly tighter seal with aluminum foil, keeping the jars from being able to breath as much as the 4 holes in the jar lid.

I'd really appreciate any feed back from those who've tried both methods.

2. My friend who has never done it before wants to inoculate 36 jars and use 6 sepperate terrariums, and crumble and case half to one third of the cakes. Does any of this sound like something you'd recomend against ?

Um, if it's your first time i'd start small first, so then ud learn a lot more from exp, which in turn would help yield you a much better amount in your upcoming cakes, experience and knowledge(reading) is def. a good way to start but i wouldnt do that much,lol, but thats just me, my first cake was Nothing compared to my later ones and if you get tyvek or polyfil then you dont need to wry about that, well gl and if u ever need help jus drop me a pm or w/e, well Gl, later

are you trying to keep your jars from breathing? a jar with holes covered with tinfoil will do just as good as tinfoil with holes covered with tinfoil IMO. listen to ignostic on the tyvek or polyfil

Tyvek is a micro-filter and polyfil is a bit les dense so it doesnt filter out as well but it gets the job done. You can find out how to use it if you use the search, if you cant find it then ill help you the best i can, jus pm if you get lost, gl....later
