How do you put holes in your lids?
    #4195208 - 05/19/05 01:55 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey, Just wondering how everyone does it and whats the best way. I tried a bunch of ways a lot were messy. I am thinking drilling is the best way, but what kinda bit should I use and its size for inoculation holes and for gas exchange holes.

i tried a drill and that seemed to fuck them up more than not. right now i just pound a screw through the top with a hammer and use ever bigger flathead screw drivers to keep enlarging the whole until i get to about 1/2 inch.

holes for pf style jars: small nail
holes for grain: small nail (no need for the big hole if you use tyvek filters instead of stuffing it with polyfill)

I drill mine.

1/8th for pf jars...with 4 hole inoculation points.

9/32nd or 5/16th for a gas exchange hole on quart jars.
with one 1/8th for one inoculation point.

I'm switching from metal to plastic lids also.
Easier to drill...and no rust to worry about later.

I got a 9/32 bit and it works good, left a little bit of a sharp edge, but that was easily taken care of, thanks!
