Jar sterility
    #4246807 - 06/02/05 03:57 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I don't have a regular opportunity to sterilize jars, so I was thinking that I could do large batches at a time, and just use them as needed. I think that if I put in a dry verm layer, a piece of tyvek between the band and lid, and left the foil lid on the jar until I was going to inoculate it, the possibility of the jar contaminating while being stored would be fairly low. Do you think this will work, or are there better ways of keeping jars sterile, if any?

Yeah.. you can leave the jars for a long, long time. Maybe put a piece of tape over the holes.. and then leave the foil on as a dust cover. Do what you said.. it will work fine.

Then if you wanted.. put em in a sealed tupperware.. you wont have any problems.

Good luck

no need to use Tyvek on BRF/Verm jars.

just pressure cook them...leave the foil on the jar.

and put them back in the box that the jars came in.

store them in a cool place...

use as needed.
