Jars probably aren't supposed to explode, right?
    #370150 - 08/11/01 12:30 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

This is kind of a strange question i guess. a few of my rye jars got contaminated with cobweb and that green shit, so i secluded them from the rest and tightened the lid down real hard to keep the contams. from escaping. Well, i go to clean them out this morning, and some how the metal round disc in the jar lid got blown outward and ripped off the to off one of the jars. i opened the other one, and it sounded like a jet taking off as the pressure escaped. is it normal for contams. to create that much gas or pressure?

Holy shit I've never herd of that before, I have holes in my lids. so even if the presure got that high it could exscape. there needle sized holes so I can inoculate though them.

Molds do not typically give off as much gas as bacteria do... did the jars smell sweet or sour? That would be an indication of bacteria. How long were they sealed?

Bacteria caused the contamination. Why are you sealing your jas? They need to breathe.

I was sure you were supposed to seal the jars after inoculation to prevent contamination.

No, you don't want to seal your jars after inoculation. Mycellium is an aerobic life form....it needs oxygen just like you or me. If you seal the jars it won't have axcess to oxygen, will deplete its isolated supply, and stall the growth.

If your using the PF Tek, the dry layer of verm is enough to block contaminants from getting onto your sexy little substrate. If your using a rye, popcorn, or whatever other method that might need to be shaken, you should use some polyfill or tyvek to allow for gas exchange, but also protects from contaminatoin.
