I would just like to say the following to those who have not gotten a pressure cooker: I boiled. I gotcontaminated horribly contaminated. I got cobb web and green mold, which was later taken over by just cobb web contamination. So its best to get a pressure cooker. I now have one. Its too much of a risk of time and materials, which is ultimately a waste of money.

Boiling is fine for the standard PF tek with brown rice and verm. You will run into problems if you try boiling whole grains.

I boiled my jars (pf tek) and of the jars that I inoculated with a sterile syringe (ordered a syringe that was contaminated) not a single one developed contams. I boiled my jars for 90 minutes each and used plenty of alcohol throughout the whole procedure. If you were innoculating them near an active fan or air conditioner that could contribute to an otherwise sterile environment. From what I've read, it's best to close all windows and turn off all fans/ACs 30 minutes prior to working with your jars.
