Sterilization through Boiling/Steaming
    #639985 - 05/22/02 07:36 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys, I've yet to attain a pressure cooker and have some questions regarding sterilization through boiling. In the past I've had only about a 50% success rate with my method and I would like some input. My standar operating procedure is to boil the jars for 1 hour with a low water level and sometimes I use a vegitable steamer. Last week I mad 12 jars and innoculated batches of 6, with a different syringe for each 6. I lost 6 jars to contams but can trace that back to a poorly made syringe. For my own interest please leave a detailed description of your own personal boiling/steaming methods. For all those out there, I have RTFM many times, and many versions. Just curious about everyone else's procedures for sterilization. Thanks.

I don't use this method myself because I have a PC, but...

Boil the jars just like you do now. Let them sit for 12-24 hrs, and then do it again. If you still have problems, add another 12-24 hrs rest period and a third boil. This method has some scientific name which I can't remember right now.

This method is called tyndallization or fractional sterilisation.
