Jars cooling?
    #550114 - 02/13/02 03:35 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Would putting the jars in a pot with cold water half way up the jars be bad for cooling? Not directly from the hot to the cold, not trying to break the jars:)

Should the jars be completely cool before innoculating?

I have read the FAQ on cooling, but waiting 6 hours for them to cool sounds risky, since I can't lock my cats in a room for that long (they would destroy it) and I can't keep a sterile environment for that long. They have been cooling for an hour and a half, the glass is noticably warm to the touch, but just barely. What would you people reccomend?

I am not sure if putting the jars in cold water would be bad. You should wait until the jars are completely cool though before innoculation. One time I didn't wait long enough and it killed all the spores.

The time that I killed the spores I think I waited for 3 or four hours, I can't remember exactly. Now I leave them overnight, just to make sure the get cooled off well enough.

You cats would open the pressure cooker, take the jars out and slam them?

Damn, you got smart cats :wink:

Wait till the jars are completely cool before innoculating. I innoculated my first batch of mushrooms ever and it took more than one month for the spores to germinate because the jars were to warm when I sprayed in the spores. Since that time I have always waited at least 8 hours for jars to cool.

Ps- rapid cool will cause cracking

Even if they got the pressure cooker open... I think they would have trouble getting their little paws to get those lids unscrewed... but if they do... we want to see the videos! ;-)
