will this 50/50 mix still be good?
    #4275492 - 06/09/05 12:52 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

AFOAF made some 50/50 mix, wet it to field capacity, nuked for 5 minutes with a 1000 watt microwave with the lid cracked open on the gladware. When it was done, she closed the lid, holding in the moisture, and put it on a cool shelf.

This was yesterday, and there is some moisture in the containers still that she can see in the form of condensation on the inside of the container.

Will this mix stay in it's pretty-much-sterilized condition for a few days like this?

Sure will, that's how I sterilize and store casing mixtures.

That's exactly right. I nuke my casing mix and use it weeks later, without opening it of course. Once you open and partially use it, you'll have to sterilize it again.

Tell your FOAF to quit being such a wuss and let him ask his own damn questions.

Nope can't blame her.  It's the worst feeling when a the casing layer itself contams.

You spent all the time letting the sub colonize and then just before you're ready to fruit, you notice that green has crept in.

I play it very safe when dealing with my casing. :smile:
