PFtek Up In Smoke
    #4066375 - 04/17/05 09:27 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I was sterilizing my BRF/verm jars yesterday when the rag underneath the jars on the bottom of the pot caught on fire. I had stepped out of my buddy's dorm kitchen to play a game of halo2, and we soon smelled smoke. All of the water must have evaporated after boiling for about 45 minutes, allowing the rag to ignite in flames. We let everything cool down (and opened all the windows to prevent the fire alarm from going off), and assessed the situation. I thought at first that everything was ruined, but it turned out that just the bottoms of the jars got burned (with a little melting of the glass), and my buddy said that I could continue with the inoculation. I did so, but I'm just wondering if anyone has an opinion on whether the process is fucked or not. Is it possible for sterilizing temps to be too hot (as in on fire)? Did the melting of the outer surface of the bottoms of the jars cause any damage inside the jars? The only problem I see as of right now is not being able to observe colonization on the bottoms because they have turned brown, but will I encounter any other problems? Thanks. Peace.

I've heard that it's not good for the verm to burn... also, the heat may've caused a loss of moisture from the jars. Yeah, you gotta watch those jars, when you're boiling, the water evaporates pretty quickly. I say better safe than sorry; since you were at step 1, just do it over and do it right. You don't wanna wait weeks for a colonization that isn't gonna happen.

Melting glass? I can only imagine your water content is f'ed up, and Personally, I wouldn't continue. I'd start over, but you already inoculated. jeesh, I don't even know what to say... :shake:

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.

maybe he should give you his halo 2 name so that you can start reminding him to check his jars
