sterile gauze
    #4561484 - 08/21/05 02:25 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm gathering supplies for a first attempt. I've read a lot of the different teks, most of the faqs, etc...When people mentioned putting (and leaving) tape over the holes after inoculation...wouldn't sterile guaze placed over the 4 holes provide ample covering of the holes with added air exchange? Or could this trap possible contams in the guaze and cause problems later (assuming a jar was contamed)?

when using the pf tek (brf cakes) there is no need for anything on the innoc holes, provided you added the dry verm layer on top of the cakes. this will give your cake all the protection it needs until after colonization.

if you are doing grains then some kind of micropore tape, polyfil, tyvek, or filter disks should be used as a contam barrier/gas exchange instead of the gauze. the gauze would allow all kinds on contams to get through.

best of luck

Thanks for a quick response. I wasn't sure and wanted to check before i gave it a test. But i don't think i'll try, not worth the loss of jars.

in this case no it wouldn't be worth the try. the gauze is not a barrier able to keep microscopic spores/bacteria from passing through it.
best of luck to ya
peace
