jar broke in PC... wtf!
    #3953922 - 03/22/05 03:52 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I had a jar of water and honey in my PC, getting ready to do a liquid cult for the first time. I PC for about 30 mins. Let it cool. I'm all ready to inoculate, but I open it up and the bottom of the jar looks like it just FELL off!

I had the stove set at the exact same setting as I usually do, and I did it for 15 mins less than usual. I've done casings in the same jars and this didn't happen...

Any ideas? I'm about to try again in 15 mins. I want some feedback first though...

you can bend wire mesh to make a 1 in shelf on bottom of pc, somtimes my jars will crack if I have PCed them a bunch of times, jars clanking together in boiling water can do it somtimes.

you might have already had a crack on the bottom of the jar and didn't know it.

always look for cracks...before loading them with substrate or what have you.

---

Are you using a wire rack or a divet type rack?

If your using a wire rack...I'd suggest getting a divet type.

---

If you are using a divet type rack...and your jars didn't have a crack to begin with.

If you have enough room inside your pressure cooker...prop the jars up with something else to raise them up a little more.

---

I have noticed that alot of my Kerr jars are getting these little round cracks in the bottom of them...that are hardly noticable.
I plan on buying some new jars and returning the ones that have the little round cracks in them.

I think they are defective...cause it can't be me.
lolzz

good luck!~

yeah, I might've had a crack. But the bottom FELL OFF, like in a perfect circle. I figured it was from direct heat transfer, so I just put a towel under it and started it up again just now.

the jars are heat resistant. Their fucking mason jelly jars...

The rack I have is a flat peice of metal with little round holes in it. It only props it up like 1/4" though. I don't know if this would be wire or divet

We'll see how this goes.

I am doing this honey culture for the first time because I have about 2cc of 1+ year old B+ spores. I got them for free, so I don't really care if this doesn't work. I don't really expect it to since they are so old. The syringe has no threads for a needle, so I figure I'll stick em in a liquid culture since I can't inject any jars.

Thanks for the help

About 1 out of 200 / 300 / 500 quart mason type jars will have an air bubble flaw in it - the factory doesnt catch. Or - sometimes you already have a micron size crack in one. Over the years, I have had about 5 jars crack / bust for no apperant reason. One I picked out of PC & bottom just fell off. Shit just happens - sometimes.

Hundreds of jars here and I've never seen one break.  I've always wondered how people end up breaking their jars.  :shrug:

If your jars are carefully inspected for cracks / chips, it seldom if ever happens. Only happened a few times over the YEARS, for me.
