Filter disks - how to use?
    #4010371 - 04/03/05 11:16 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

For good gas exchange, I was thinking using the disks as the lid (with 1/2 pint metal jar lid bans/rings) and breathable tape over the inoculation holes during incubation.

Does this sound like a good use for synthetic filter disks or does anyone have a better idea? Thanks.

I have holes drilled in the metal lids, and I put the filter disk over that. Then screw it into place.

What are you doing, grains or the 4 hole PF style jars?

Does anyone have any suggestions? Would using the filter disks alone for a lid (with the metal band of course) be overkill and cause contaminents?

Extreme overkill.

you don't need to use filter discs on pf-jars.

just use the metal lids with the 4 holes.

the dry verm layer will keep out contams.
