Polyfill is what I use. Also tyvek. I swear by it. I've never had a contam get in the jar except when it came from a bad print.

i would take it with those jars you have that you are going with some kind of grain tek? don't try and do brf cakes in them unless you plan on casing, otherwise you will never get a colonized brf (pf tek) cake out of them without breaking it up.
the tyvek or polyfil will work with great success.
good luck
peace

I like the 'furnace filters' from Walmart or home depot. it's a polyester type 'mesh' material. Good air exchange, no extra coffee filters required, easy to put a needle through them, and the cost about $3 for enough to do 10-12 jars. It's mentioned in the FAQ under tips and goodies.
