I don't use a hood to inoculate my jars, I just turn the A/C off, fans off and spray the air with 95% ethanol as well as wiping my area down with the ethanol. Then I use a face mask and sterile gloves (if they aren't sterile just rub the ethanol on your hands). Only have one contam but it was a week and a half later. It happened while handling the jars too much during the colonization period. Gloves are a few $s so are the masks and the ethanol is ~ $10 from a chemical supply place (will last you for a LONG time). Good Luck.

Never, ever use an oven for a flow hood period. Build yourself a cheap gloove box out of a cardboard box instead or use a large Rubbermaid in replacement.

This is great advice if your not going to build a flow hood.
