Sterilizing Time and Other ?s
    #4537476 - 08/15/05 12:52 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I ordered some 1/2 pint jars to do the PF-tek with. The substrate I will be using will be a mix of verm/manure/brf. I am a little confused because some posts/archives say to pressure cook them at 15 psi for 20 minutes, some say 45 minutes, and some say 60 minutes. Which is it? Also, some say to tighten the lids down completely and some say to leave them loose. Once again, which is it? TIA

Loosen the lids, and cover with tinfoil and pc for 60mins. You may get away with a little less time, but do you really want to save 15mins only too see all your work down the drain and wasted spores in a weeks time.

They do not need to be pc'd at all, but if you have a pc go for it.
