sterilization of culture jars
    #3561286 - 12/30/04 02:25 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Can you guys give some advice on sterilizing jars with the regular boiling method? Also is there such thing as leaving them to boil for too long? *edit* (I'm not talking about using a pressure cooker)

Your talking about BRF/verm right? Thats the only substrate you can boil...prepare the jars using the PF Tek and place in a pot and boil for 45-60 minutes or so (30 would probably work but whats a few more minutes for a little more peice of mind?). I'm not sure about boiling for to long but I think anywhere up to 2 hours would be ok..you can definatly PC for a good 2 hours and longer without problems so I dont see why boiling would hurt.

Some sort of towel or rack on the bottom of the pan to avoid direct jar contact would be good too. And I wouldnt use one with dyes unless you want a colored pot.
