Steam Sterilization
    #3897907 - 03/10/05 03:30 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey all - I'm a first timer. If I want to steam my jars - do they need to actually sit in the water, or can I put them in a veggie steaming basket above the water. The lid fits pretty tight. I just worry about water splashing up into the holes in the jars.
Second I've read two teks. One tapes the holes after inoc. the other doesn't and I was wondering if it was just left out or if there might be a reason for not taping. This whole process is making me feel really anal, but I'm looking forward to a fun summer. BK  :tongue:

well, wut u should do is put about an inch and a half or 2 inches of water (basically jus below the lid of ure jars) and put something to weigh them down in a pot, i use a glass pot lid. then boil them so that way the hot water touches them. As for the tape thing goes some suggest no tape at all considering u hopefully have a layer of dry vermiculite on top to prevent against contams, that layer should do plenty good so jus dont tape them, if u didnt put that layer of dry verm then use breathable tape such as a band aid, surgical tape, etc. a way to test if its breathable is to put a piece over ure mouth and see if u can get air to pass through it, if so then its good to go
