need help
    #609190 - 04/15/02 03:35 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

i'm boiling my half pint jars in water to sterilize them. before i do that, do i put tape on the holes in the lids and boil them with the holes covered or not? MMGG says to just put a piece of tin foil over the holes and boil them, but i think that would let all of the water in the substrate evaporate. but if i do tape the holes, will my jars blow up from pressure? somebody please help me out

what I do is 2 layer tin foil (or 1 piece folded in half) over the lid, then the ring over that. Then when I innoculate just pierce with the syringe, then 2 coffie filters and rubber band em on.


hey, kid.... you wanna buy some lsd?? -me

keep them covered w/ foil and dont tape them.
nothing substantial will evaporate.
cover the pan with boiling water to keep teh steam in and it will heat your jars more effectively.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

I just make lids up with polyfill to vent(poke about 1/4 inch hole and fill with filter floss) and tape over Innoculation holes with masking tape. Then when I want to innoculate jar I just wipe tape with alcohol and stick needle thru it, then put another piece of tape over needle hole and flame needle between holes. I have very few problems with contamination that way

I'm never SURE of anything
