PF Jars
    #4490121 - 08/03/05 04:05 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hey guys, I've got a question about sterilization of my PF jars. I am trying to do a batch of 12 jars but I can only fit 8 jars into my PC at a time. I would like to do my inoculations all at once but I want to make sure everything is sterile when doing it. If I cook 1/2 the jars and let them cool overnight, where do I store them to keep them sterile? Is it OK to just put them in the fridge? I will have 2 layers foil over them, is that enough? Once I finish the 2nd half of the jars and let them cool overnight, I'll just pull them from the PC when I'm going to inoculate them.

Also, if I've got another set of jars that have a different strain incubating, is it OK to put these into the same box to incubate? I have a plastic container with a thermometer and I've got the foil off the jars as well. They have been in there for maybe a week. I have a separate terrarium for the two strains but am just wondering about the incubation period.

Thanks!

just leave them on the counter or in a cab. till there all done pc ing
then knock them all up

you can put them all in the same cont. to incu. just make sure you label them so you know which is which

incubation ? could be 2 weeks could be a good part of a month depends on temp how often you peak at them just put them in there and forget them for like 2 weeks

The dry verm layer will keep out contams pretty well. I wouldn't worry too much about where to store them during cooling.

Great thanks guys.  I will label them so I don't mix them up.  My container for the incubation stage is see through so I don't mess with them when I check on them :smile:

you can steam the jars in a pot with water, but it isn't as fail safe as the pc. when i first started out, the steaming method worked just fin... as long as you follow the sterile techniques with everything else , shouldn't have a prob.
