Postal Tyvek

If someone was to use tyvek from postal envelopes, to filter quarts, how many layers of tyvek would that person need? :syringe: :mushroom2:

that's it! just one and a coffee filter. have you ever tried 2 or 3? what difference would it have on the rye?

One works & why fix it - if it isn't broke.
More than one chokes off gas exchange & is simply overkill.

I don't do straight rye. I do WBS, with a little rye (10%)& rape (canola) seed (5%) in it.

What happens between 4 and 5?
Also, I assume you remove the coffee filters to innoc and replace them right after... is this correct?

Thanks.

I use two, i think only one lets the stuff in the jar dry out too quickly, and i always like that feeling of security, two barriers is always safer than one

more of a thick & unique paper.  I'd say any part of the envelope that does have glue on it.  I'm with agar.  anymore than 1 tyvek layer is going to choke off gas exchange. :syringe: :mushroom2:

I say don't waste your time on envelopes. At home depot 3 days ago i got 18ft2 of house tyvek for $2.30.

This will last me prolly until next year.

Nice face you have..... :grin:

Tyvek here is hard to get and expensive. So I am very happy with the person who sended some tyvek envelopes to me.

BTW why is going for free envelopes wasting time, and going for paod tyvek not wasted time?
IMHO both take time, but one is for free, the other one is not.... :lol:

One layer of tyvek is fine and no coffee filters are needed. Use only the priorety mail ones the others are 25% recycled paper.
