To those who use/have used Tyvek for jars.

When using Tyvek as a filter for your jars, when you take them out of the PC and shake, would it be better to shake side to side, because it seems like you could rip the tyvek if you shook real hard up and down. Also, do any precautions need to be taken to keep the tyvek from getting wet other than wrapping foil around the top?? Thanks for the help!!

Make sure the hole in the jar's metal lid is made from the buttom side up. So when you do shake, there are no sharp peices of metal ripping the tyvek. Up and down, side to side, whatever. Fuck, they are hard enough to shake as it is.

Tin foil will keep it dry enough.

So do I need to be using the metal lids in addition to the tyvek?? I thought you could just use tyvek and the metal bands.

Anno did an experiment on the subject. He Concluded that tyvek alone dries out the jars too much. Tyvek + a lid with a 1/2-1/4" hole works best. To preserve lids, I sometimes make no holes in my lids and just make sure the lids are fairly loose.
