how do you do your quarts??
    #4035639 - 04/09/05 11:36 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

How do you seal the quarts?  In the past I have taken 2 squares of tyvek and thrown away the lids and screwed the tyvek on as the "lid".

I think another way that is done is to leave the metal lid on but poke a hole in it and put a square of tyvek over the top and screw the whole thing on.

another way I've heard is to use polypropelene fluffy stuff and stick it in the hole of the metal lid.

anyway I just got a new set of jars and I'm curious to your opinions of the best way.  I have loads of tyvek to waste. and virgin jars.  I can't wait to knock em up :wink:

How I do jar lids:

Drill or punch a 1/4" inch hole in the top. Stuff Polyfill in the hole moderately tight. They are PCable, reuseable, and you can inoculate directly through them.

I absolutely love these lids. Fast, simple and effective.

I drilled a 1/4" hole in all the lids. I then took a lid and traced it a bunch of times onto a sheet of tyvec. I cut them all out, and ended up with a ton of little filters.

I then put the lid on, the filter over that, and then I put the band on to hold both of them down. Cutting out like 40 of them only took me about a half hour, and I will have enough to last me ages. I have had great colonization in all of the jars that I have done this way, and never ever a contam.

Its also great to write on the tyvek - very clean and easy way to keep track of things. much better than tape or a label.

How are you suppose to inoculate through the tyvek? Wouldnt that poke a whole though it and let it be open to contams?

2 or 3 holes in the metal or plastic lid.

Inoculate through one & tape it over.
