Sterilzing the PF Jar?
    #4632352 - 09/08/05 12:59 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Okay so I bought some spores a few days ago and I should be getting them soon I want to do this as perfectly as possible so I actaully get shrooms because where I live it's impossible to get shrooms. Anyways in the guides it talks about putting the jars into a boiling pot of water to sterilize the stuff. Okay how does it sterilize it if the stuff is inside the jar?? Also if I leave it in a boiling pot of water won't the jar burst because of the heat? Answers would be greatly appreciated.

The water and steam causes the inside of the jar to heat up, which, kills all of the microbes inside of the jar.

The jars will not burst as long asyou have your holes poked in the lid and you make sure that the jars aren't directly touching the bottom of the pot (i fold a dish towel in half and put my jars ontop of it).

Also, I wouldn't do anything with your substrate until you receive your spores.
