Oven sterilization?
    #4697720 - 09/22/05 11:58 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Is there any particular reason that substrate jars are sterilized in a pressure cooker? An oven can achieve the same temperatures, and has certain advantages such as being able to handle larger batches.

moisture... baking would bake the moisture right out, while PC'ing takes it to high temperatures while still keeping the moisture levels of the substrate.

This occurred to me, but if the jars are sealed I wouldn't think it would be an issue. There's the possibility that significant moisture would escape through the polyfill/Tyvek, but Tyvek in particular is advertised as being waterproof.
