Oversterilization?
    #4310176 - 06/18/05 05:56 AM (13 years, 8 days ago)

I'm doing the PF tek and I was sterilizing the jars but I believe the water ran out 45 - 60 mins in the process and burned a hole in the pot. In not 100% sure that the jars are sterilized...should I just resterilize them for another hour? Will this over-sterilize and kill the nutrients in the BRF because I certainly don't want that.

If the water ran out, then the substrate is likely burned.

Discard the substrate and start anew.

If it burned a hole in the pot, it fried metal. I would agree with Anno. They are toast. I am surprised the jars did not break.

I had the water almost run out before and there looked like there was some "cooked" grain which looked sticky at the bottom of some of the jars.

This shit stayed stuck to the bottom even when I shook them. I proceeded to inoculate them anyway because this stuff represented only a very small part of the grain, perhaps 1%. They appeared to have colonized without a problem.

Since then I've been using more water, I think the rocker on my PC does not seal completely when it isn't rocking, and therefore uses more water than usual.

I just fill extra like said ^ But i use heavy duty aluminum foil, and i wrap it all the way accross the bottom so there is no way any water is gettin in thur. As far as "oversterilization" I dont think you can go anywhere past sterile.. Its kind of like having a light bulb that is "over on"

Most people who run out of water in their pressure cooker are turning the heat up WAY too high. The rocker weight type should just be rocking barely at all or on the verge of rocking but not rocking. If it sounds like a steam engine or something, you need to turn down the heat. Over heating a pressure cooker doesn't get it hotter, but it does dry the contents out faster, including the water on the bottom.

I stacked the jars and only the ones on the bottom burned the substrate and cracked the jars, the rest were fine... should I just steam the jars that aren't burned once more for safety reasons?
