Can you sterilize in the PC without the jars?
    #3837609 - 02/26/05 05:14 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

If I fill up my pressure cooker with casing mix and throw the lid on (with the proper water content, maybe even a little extra water sitting there) and PC it will it work? Oven cooking takes so long and I cant do so much at once, not a big enough pot. Plus I like sterilizing. But loading into jars is a pain in the ass. I thought only 2 casings I did would be done by today but alas, the 5 I did of creeper easily caught the amazons and I have 7 casings 12x24 and enough casing mix sterilized for only 2 :frown: Grr.

Maybe if I cant just throw it in the PC I'll just hot water pasteurize it...

Der...I forgot all about bags.

I dont have any here though and I'd like to not go out to buy some (snowy roads) but I may if I have to....

I get your drift, Imagine the PC as one big jar. Don't see a problem with it as long as you open your PC in a pretty sterile enviroment.

i don't know why, but that doesn't sound like it would work. i mean if u did do that then what are you going to do with all of the substrate in there? it seems like it would be even more of a pain to work with a big pot of substrate and keep it sterile.. what do i know though....

It's not the substrate, it's the casing mix, a huge difference. But if you were in a extremely clean room maybe even a substrate would work.

Exactly, not substrate, casing mix. I thought of it before with substrate but if it contams (pretty good chance), you lose it all of course. Casing mix though doesn't need to stay sterile, just be sterilized once. As long as I'm not gonna cook it to the bottom of the pot and it will reach 15 PSI then I should be ok..I just dont know if either of these things will happen. You give me hope though penlight. I think I shall do it. Did you have it floating in water, a little extra water on the bottom, or just slightly moist? And did you do it to sterilize it or just to get it to soak up the water fast?

I put about 2 inches of water in the PC followed by casing mix with standard water content, theis worked fine but was a bitch to clean up, now I just drop in the bottom rack put standard pcing water and place my mix in a smaller pot with the handle sawed off and put that in the PC,

again the first method worked fine, but my PC couldn't fit in the sink and the smaller pot could so it is easier for me to do it that way

Hmm a pan in there could also help the clean up and I may have something that will work. Thanks!
