Sterilization Techniques?
    #622052 - 04/29/02 09:56 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys. I don't have a pressure cooker and was wondering about how you guys sterilize your jars. I've been steaming them, but I was wondering how you guys setup your steaming operation. Do you leave the jars on the bottom or use a steamer rack. Any thoughts would be great!

I take a washcloth and fold it so its about 1/2" thick. Then fill the water a little higher than the washcloth, and set my jars on that. So far ive only had 1 jar out of probably 60-80 total which got contammed over the past few months... *knock on wood*

do you use any other techs to avoid comtams? I've done the same thing but close to 40% of my jars fuck up! Any pre sterilization techs?

Are you wiping the rims before you put in your top layer of vermiculite?

Contams can get in that way if ANY substrate is exposed.
