TiT Diagnostic. Help please
    #4362808 - 07/02/05 12:49 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I am a greenmeanie maniac :rolleyes: and I am trying to diagnose the problem.  Could it be the fact that my TiT is as follows:

8gal tub inside a 18gal tub, no air holes in either (except the one for the cord in the 18gal and two tiny ones under the handles of the 8gal).  The 8gal floats aound in the 28gal partially submerged due to the weight of its contents.  No I need to punch a bunch of air holes in these tubs?

My PF jars all contam with greenies under almost all air exchange holes.  I have tried using postal tyvek under the lid but the contams seem to go right through it.  I have opened the lid on one contaminated jar :shocked: to inspect but the tyvek and the verm layer look completely dry.  wtf mates

PC 60-90minutes with aluminum foil over the lids. I use a silly cardboard box with saran wrap on top for a semi-static glovebox. Flame-sterilize needle with lighter and cool with 70% rubbing alcohol soaked paper towels. IMO I am pretty sterile compared to many I have heard success stories from.

Cardboard alone will harbor more green mold spores than you can shake a stick at. Your glove box may be hurting more than helping. A simple clear plastic tub with hand holes would be easier to clean. Being smoothe instead of porous. I have seen damp cardboard turn green before. Saran wrap top also posesses the great ability to help suspend spores into the air electrostatically.

I was about to say the same thing - cardboard is a no no.

Go with what ninja said...stay away from anything that will decompose within a million years.

Vendor syringe. I have only used 1 syringe so it could be bad although it was from a good vendor. Sounds like I should make a better glovebox. So is the TiT not really a reasonable source for contamination? I Tilex (with bleech) the shit out of it before I used it. The water has bleech in it too.
Thanks everyone
