Sterilization and point of implementation.
    #364809 - 08/01/01 04:05 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I just got done with my first ever flush and now it's time to make new jars. After thinking about my sterilization procedures of preparing jars I think I may change my tech to save some time. The first time I created a complete sterile enviroment to prepare the jars, pressure cook, and inoculate. This took me half a day just to create the enviroment, then a second half slaving away trying to get all the procedures done at once in a hot exclosed kitchen.
My question is this. Why is a complete sterile enviroment nessacary for the preping of the jars when the pressure cooking is going to kill everything anyway? Wouldnt it suffice to have a sterile enviroment just from the point of taking the foil off the jars and innoculation?
I would like to get the opinion of some of the senior members here. As well as everybody elses opinion.

Thanks

It's not needed for pressure cooking. Yes, keep it clean when you inoculate. You're working to hard.

you don't need a sterile environment to prepare your substrate before you PC it

Sterility is usually over stressed in cultivation techs because alot of newbies won't take proper techniques when you need them. For preparing the jars sterility doesn't matter cuz your PCing everything your using. If you are innoculating through holes in the lid of the jar, ala PF/MMGG, then just flame the needle between jars, thats all the sterility needed. But if you are taking the lid off and innoculating then a sterile environment is definately needed.

I have been going to extremes to get a sterile environment and putting alot of effort into it. After I did this for my first time I realized that prepping the jars didnt need as much sterility as I originaly thought. Although I see how other procedures like taking prints may warrant my efforts at sterility.

Thanks for the responses y'all.
