A good question about lids
    #4072361 - 04/19/05 01:28 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Many pepole use different kinds of lids... and they're made in a variety of different ways.

So far I've seen
1) a lid with 1 layer of tyvek, and the metal ring to hold it down to the top.
2) a lid with a 1/2 or 1/3 in hole on the top of the metal disc of the lid..with polyfill coming through.
3) 1 layer of tyvek, then the lid with polyfill pulled through.. then the ring.. and coffee filters

The list goes on and on!!

Which of these works well?? Wouldn't the top made exclusively of tyvek dry the grains out?? (i'm working with WBS)

Also. Please reccomend how far up I fill my jars too. One TEK I read said to fill the 1QT jar 1/2 way up with WBS.. and others have told me 2/3 - 3/4 the way up!! HELP!!!

I'm about to do some tonight (WBS is already soaked and draining).. and I'd love your opinion.

Are WBS jars more prone to contams than PF jars would be??

I have a Pressure Cooker also... plan on PC'ing @15lbs - 90 min.

Thanks as always

Sammy

^^.... done this for years, never failed me yet.
Don't fill jars over 3/4 full, otherwise they become unshakeable.

Go for the Tyvek lid band with either aluminum foil or the coffee filter on it as agar suggested. Works wonders for colonization speeds with all that air exchange!
