Steaming concerns..
    #4426052 - 07/20/05 01:08 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Once I steam/boil all of the jars, how long do I have until they may not be so sterile anymore? I was thinking of creating the substrate and setting them up for inoculation when the syringe comes in a few days. If I were to prep them for inoculation say, tomorrow, would they remain sterile enough to inoculate in 4 or 5 days?

And an added concern is that the syringe might be overheated during transit, I mean it's hot as hell this week and I wouldn't want to go through all this prep only to recieve a dead spore syringe. Think they'll be OK?

if they're properly sterilized then they will be ok (btw, pc'ing is the best means of sterilization_)..... and yea yer spores will be okay unless you leave them in a box in the direct sun for along time

I definitely plan on a PC when I start picking up on this down the road, but for now all I can really afford is what I already have. Also, once I sterilize them can I just keep them in a rubbermaid container in my closet or is that kind of heat/humidity bad for it at this stage? If not would a basement be better, it's definitely a lot cooler down there. Another thing is the tape, I went out and got strong electrical tape. Will that stay on during steaming or no?

You can wait a couple days but I wouldn't wait more than a week.

Keep the jars in a closet.

Electrical tape will work fine.

Thanks for the advice! Now I have the two-piece jar tops. When I tape the 2 parts together do I just put a piece of tape across the whole top (band+cover) to make it one unit? Will it be sturdy and not come apart if I have to adjust the tightness?
