Tyvek on Jars in PC?
    #4102058 - 04/27/05 10:55 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys

Some of our wonderfull members send me some tyvek, which I never used be4.

My questions is if I can prepare my rye jars, and cover them with the tyvek and put that in the PC?

Or isnt the Tyvek capable of letting enough air through. There will be a lid underneath with a half an inch hole with polyfill in it.

Thanks!

MF

if your using Tyvek you dont need pollyfill also.Just cut out a disc and place it under cap with hole,then cover with foil like you normally would and PC.

I know I dont need to use polyfill feels save to leave it there. Might prohibit air exchange though so I might remove it.

I just want to know if I can place the tyvek tight on the lid which has that half inch hole in it, and PC that together with the lid screwed on the jar.

But I understand that I can do that?

Thanks,
MF

if your really worried just use 2 layers of tyvek.But whether you use 1 or 2 layers,place them UNDER the cap with the hole,then screw lid down on top of that tightly as you wont get the vacuem,and cover with foil and pc.or just leave cap off all together,cover top with tyvek and screw ring over that.

Caps are pretty useless with tyvek, I just use tyvek, lid and foil top.

Same here,I agree.The only problem is sometimes if the moisture content wasnt right they dry out faster with no lid,but i havent had that problem,just heard others have.

Could someone please explain this better? Should it be:

Aluminum Foil Top
Ring/Band
Tyvek
Metal Lid with Holes

Or

Aluminum Foil top
Ring/Band
Metal Lid with holes
Tyvek

Also if your doing quarts of WBS, do you need more than one hole?

This is how I do my jars prior to PC'ing(from bottom up, in order of being placed on):
Metal lid (with 5 holes 1/8" in an "X" pattern)
Tyvek
Metal ring (tightened securely)
edit: Before someone asks, I do not put foil over my jars in the PC, you don't really need it w/ the Tyvek and metal lid

This has never let me down, or allowed my jars to dry out.

I can already see this question coming so I'll answer it beforehand.  The difference between my order and agar's is that he uses coffee filters as well.  If I were to use coffee filters, then I would be going in the same order.  However, I'm not, and I like to write info on my jars (strain, innoc date, innoc method, etc.), thus the Tyvek is after the metal lid.  Both methods work equally well... GL peeps :stoned:

BTW, nice pic agar, very easy to follow :wink:

It was more kind of lazy and like the polyfill wont harm so i leave it there. But I might take it away and cover the hole loosly with a bandaid. As I also do with the jars when I have polyfill.

Those rings we dont have them here, and tyvek is costy and hard to get. So I will use one piece of tyvek on each jar, screw lid on tight, apply alufoil. I also do that with polyfill the first couple of days. Then I remove it and apply the band aid.

Thanks! The poo is already waiting... ;P

MF

Edit: What are all those  rings and caps you guys have? :tongue: I only have a jar and a lid. The lid I have a hole in where the polyfill is usually in and where I inoculate through. During PC alufoil is covering the jar.

So I can just take the jar with rye, put tyvek over it, screw lid on real tight. Cover with alufoil (or not like NMS) and PC it, right?

Thanks everyone! :thumbup:

MF

I write the date/strain/innoc type on the coffee filter. The coffee filter simply serves as an external dust cover over the lids.
