Question about sterilizing
    #603877 - 04/10/02 02:23 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

hello, i just got all the supplies and im just waiting for my syringe to get here, but i have one question, when i am using my pressure cooker should the lid be on tight? or loose? and should the innoulation holes be covered? i was just wondering how the inside of the jars would be sterile if they were closed, thanks Seth

The lid on the pressure-cooker needs to be tight. Yes, cover the holes by using a piece of tinfoil wrapped tightly around the lid of the jar like this:


The jars will sterilize when the substrate heats up in the jars during pressure-cooking

Thanks alot, that helped a ton, one more question though the technique i am planning on using is the one where you make a reseviour of tin foil inside of the jar and then put the vermaculite over the resevoir, should i still put tin foil over the jar too to keep out contaminates from the holes??

Thanx
Mr.J

You're lucky, i didn't understand how to make that seal. Perhaps you could drive to my house and i could show you how to put the tinfoil over the jar, and you could show me how to put the tinfoil in the jar.

>? i was just wondering how the inside of the jars would be sterile if they were closed

The water and steam in the pressure cooker heats the whole jar from the outside, thus the inside also reaches the pressure cooking temperature over time.

Yes you still need to tinfoil the jars. The tinfoil over the jars is to keep the substrate from getting soaked during pressure-cooking. The substrate has the right mix of water in it; you don?t want to add more. All contams should be killed during pressure-cooking if done correctly.
