I'm sterilizing my jars, did i mess them up??
    #3697270 - 01/29/05 09:02 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

They've been steaming for about a half hour now. I used tin foil lids and when I lifted the pot lid the tin foil looked almost burnt and dirty. The foil was also puffed up a little bit. I think it got all discoloured because the steam was so hot.

I did have it on high for away and it was running low on water. I turned it from "simmer" to low. The simmer on my stove is almost a rolling boil so you can see why I turned it down. Do you guys think my jars will still be alright to inoculate once cool to the touch??

Thanks,
SN03

I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

I think maybe some water droplets landed on the lids from boiling and evaporated so fast from the heat that it left a slight brownish stain. Whachaguys think?

Thanks,

i burnt my tin foil on my first try to, i incoculated jars and they came out fine. as long as the substrate and jars are ok. it should be fine. i burnt the shit out of my tin foil too. half of it was charred black.
