Tyvek filter lids cut when PCed
    #4312744 - 06/19/05 02:36 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Should I wait to tighten the lids all the way after they finish in the PC? Cause all but one of the filters cut a perfect circle detaching from the lid. Any help?

I've never left the lids loose when pc'ing jars with tyvek over the holes. Just cover with foil.

I only have a sheet of tyvek screwed on, no lid at all. Is this incorrect, should I have left the lid on? I thought this would make for better air exchange.

Or is that too much exchange, and the mycelium is going to begin fruiting before it finishes colonizing my cake?

If you're using grains, it may dry them out too quick.. You're supposed to put the lid over the tyvek, with a 1/2 in hole in it.

I only use a 1/4 inch hole in the lid for gas exchange (tyvek underneath).

Speaking of Tyvek, how did everyone get their hands on the stuff. Will the post office just sell you an envelope made of it? Are there any other alternatives that can be purchased in a store like (ack!) Wal/K-Mart, or any hardware store?

Also, when you inoculate, you have to remove the Tyvek completely right?  Or can you remove the lid (with the 1/4" to 1/2" hole) and inoculate near the edges of the Tyvek and glass, then put the lid back on?

Just seems as though, when using a filter, it definitely has advantages. But if you have to take the filter off, it greatly increases the chances of a contam. So, anyway to innoc with the filter  in place? I suppose you could "peel" up the edged, but still increases chances...

I'm a noob.

Be nice.  :wink:

Go to any USPS, its free (priority mail envelopes).



You leave the tyvek in place. Inoculate right through it. Then tape over that hole. #5 jar is after PC'ing.
