Sterilizing Verm..... BIG !!KABOOM!!
    #3926115 - 03/16/05 05:23 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I was sterilizing some verm. for my casings. I had 2 pints jars and 1 quart jar filled with verm. and fuckin my steamer need some water so I put some more in like I useally do. I slowly pored it and BOOM my 1 quart (biggest glass with verm.) explodes. Scared the shit outta me. and was close to my face, cuz had to put my face in the steam to see the bottom. So yea, I just lost a lot of verm. o well. So now I have 2 pint jars cooling and I just filled another 2 pints to sterilize cuz I lost my quart.

Thing is, I wet down my verm a little, w/ the 1 quart and 2 pints was that alright? After the explosion I just put some dry verm and sealed it. and threw it in there. Should it be fine, should still sterilize?

Ok, peace. Thank you!

When you added water to the steamer, were you adding hot water?

be glad that you lost verm and not an eye or a smooth cheek......

next time just put it in heat resistant container and microwave it for 5 minutes.

verm comes pretty sterile since in the production process it is heated to more then 500 Celsius!

Many things i put in the PC but my casingmaterial I always put in the MW. Takes much less time and is less work, just fill a tupperware container, put in the MW and 5 mins later its done.

Have been putting it in my PC as well, but too much time and work consuming.
