my little project
    #3738322 - 02/06/05 01:23 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

while waiting for my birdseed to colonize i have decide to mix up 8 mini jars of BRF and Verm. since i cannot PC them i have decided to nuke them for a few min then let them cool and inc. all of them with 4B+ and 4EQ since i have some extra laying around. i have no idea that this will work or that just nuking will get rid of contams but what the hell.

Should work if you get the times just right. Do yourself a favor and don't listen to anyone. Start a new easy to use tek.

look up the use of microwaves for sterilization. you'll see the few people have had any success using a microwave. and I can speak first hand saying that it's not very effective. I played around with the idea when I first started growing, before I got a PC. If you're using grain, you need a PC. Yeah, you can do fractal sterilization but its not as effective as a PC.

sorry bro I thought you were talking about preparing your WBS in a microwave. Yeah, I don't see why it wouldn't work for BRF. I don't know for sure if it'd work, I'd still recommend PC'ing or boiling but I think you've got a decent shot at getting it to work, just make sure that you microwave for a good amount of time because for anything to get killed, you'll need sustained high temps. How long? I don't know. 15 minutes sounds good but thats just a number I pulled out of my ass.

It could be a good to leave one closed as a control.  Don't do anything with this container after you  think you have sterilized it.  If that one shows no signs of growth at all after a month than you can pretty sure that the others won't have any contams left over from the medium not being fully sterilized by the microwave.  Good luck with everything :smile:

CAUTION: Vermeculite can reach over 1400F in a microwave!

I had vermeculite in a glass, it melted into the glass!

It is cool to watch it expand though!

I even got some sparks from the metalic minerals in the vermeculite!

I don't think you can get the moisture right. A pressure cooker leaves all the water in the jars. Your microwave is going to boil some of it out. You might be perfectly sterile, but too dry to grow anything. JMO
