Can I use a vegetable steamer as a pressure cooker?
    #4697541 - 09/22/05 11:18 PM (12 years, 3 days ago)

All I have is a vegetable steamer for my jars, which basically means the jars are simply above some water in a pot. Should I boil at a lower level for longer or do something different?

I've used my steamer twice and had zero contamination....but I onsider myself lucky. I had it going full blast for an hour and a half. This kind of info is in all sorts of FAQs.

Is it normal that when you take the jars out there all wet on the outside?

it's not a pressure cooker, so no it can't be used like a pressure cooker. It is a pot with a lid and a means for keeping jars off the bottom so it can be used for preparing BRF jars. Yes, they are bound to get wet on the outside, you did have the tops covered, yeah?

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

steamer works ok for brf cakes but fails horribly at everything else like WBS or LC

If your doing BRF cakes the steamer will work just fine.

As for anything else (grains) you can use it but you have to do fractional sterilization. You can llok it up if you want but basically it take 3-4 days steaming your subtrait for 1hr at a time three to four times alowing 16-24hrs bwn steaming sessions.
