30% isnt a good rate. 10% is better. 5% is good. 2% is GREAT.

BTW, jars of what?

Yep, that's a really high contam ratio.  Invest in a good pressure cooker if you want to get past the starting line in this hobby  :laugh:

I actually used no pressure cooker and ive successfully started 20 jars, all contam free. You just have to be fast and efficient in what you are doing. I used a regular soup pan and a vegetable or pasta cooker. I cooked over boiling water for about 90 minutes. Still though the first jars i ever did, which was a joint process with my cousin, we used the same cookers and 6 out of 12 contamed. So it really has to do with how well prepared you are to just get er done.

a FOAF boiled his first 12 PF cakes and didnt lose a singe one to contamination. 2-3 hours boiling/steaming has worked for him
I recommend aluminium foil lids, one permanant, one you can take off for inoculation.

I lost maybe 3 out of 12 cakes (1/2 pint) my first time around only boiling the jars. Since i bought a pressure cooker i havent lost any of 50 or so quart jars and 30 pint jars.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
