Spores properly stored won't go bad, they just germinate progressively slower according to how old they are.

I would recommend the PC, but you can boil cakes. Someone around here knows how to do it, I never bothered to learn.

I get about a 30% contam rate boiling my jars, mostly bacterial contaminations.

I use a BIG pot with about 5 inches of water and a bath towel on the bottom. I bring it to a boil, turn down the heat and put 12 jars inside and let it boil slowly for 1.5 hours. You might try 2 hours just make sure the jars don't get burnt.

But uh..I've said it before, and I'll say it again..

Mirro 8 quart model, $40, Wallymart. Does 5, 10, or 15 psi, fits 5 pints or 3 quart jars.

(I originally said 4 quarts, but I just found out it's really 3)

If you want good results, 40 bucks ain't so bad when you get some scratch together to invest.
