Tyvek and PF
    #3693853 - 01/28/05 04:38 PM (12 years, 24 days ago)

I just prepared my 4 oz. PF jars for sterilization. I used tyvek for a cover, but I also put a layer of dry vermiculite. Should I poke holes for inoculation now? If so, should I cover them with tape? Is it possible just to poke the syringe through without holes when I inoculate?

HELP!

I am not sure if tyvek is transparant enough to let enough hot air through in teh PC. I use alufoil when PC-ing, with pre made holes.

Make the holes before PC, cover with alufoil so no water comes in. Dont bend the foil to the jar. Wrap it so it wont come of during PC.

Just before inoc you take the foil away and in you go with tha Squirter! :laugh:

MF,I do it a little differant.I have had fruit fly and contam problems.This now what I'm doing.
1)use verm layer as per PF
2)cover top with tyvek,use rubber band to hold down.Mark holes so you can find later.
3)cover with foil
After PC'ing
Shot up thur tyvek cover hole with band aid or tape.

Only difference is marking of the holes?

Actually, if I remember well, you had some contams in grainjars right?

I think its no bad idea to apply a little verm layer to those as well! Fill the jars up high, so the needle can get through the verm.

Gonna test that next time! Also in bags (with (ghetto)filterpatch in top) that can be applied as an extra contambarrier.
