I can only tell you this, if there's steam leaking from the seal...well, I am not really sure that you should be using this cooker!
I can only give you this advice: try to get your hands on a proper pressure cooker - I've been using a pressure cooker right from the start and I suppose that as a result of this I never had a jar contaminated (I've been growing now for 2.5 years).
I've tried sterilization once with a normal pot (i.e. steaming for one hour) and the result was: 3 contaminated out of 6.

Hey Pantera,
I cooked substrate this past week for first time. I didnt think it would be noisy at all. I used a pot w/ lid even though I have a P.C. I put jars in and let boil, it was TERRIBLY loud. I did it in the morn. when my mom went out, and brother was sleeping. I thought Id get caught for sure. My advice to you, only cook substrate when you are POSITIVE no one will be home in an hours time.

Thank's a lot for you're help. I actually think it's the steam coming from the bottom of the pressure regulator because the gasket isn't loose anywhere and it's not really that much steam coming out. Oh and by the way i'm growing ecuadorians, do you think it would be better for me to use birdseed as a substrate instead of the old pf cakes?

I have a Mirro pressure canner, and there is a valve built into one of the handles. It leaks steam until the canner reaches a certain psi, then you can hear it close with a thunk, and the steam leak ceases. It's some sort of safety factor. Check out your canner manual and see if there is any info pertaining to this or to whatever other problems you might be having with it. Since high-pressure devices can prove to be pretty dangerous, they usually have a troubleshooting and safety section in there.

Pantera ,,,I have been exposed to Pressure cookers since I was 5 yrs old and never have seen one blow up on any of my half dozen relatives who cans food and vegetables.

Not to say it hasent happend I too have read a few horror stories,,,but if after careful research I suspect you will find that most Pressure Cooker accidents have been caused by a total lack of, or improper maintanence.

Besides most "new" cookers and 2 of the most popular brands Presto & Mirro in the last 15 to 20 years have implamented fairly stupid resistant steam safeties.

So if your cooker has a giggler on top that lets off steam every so often "Mirro" or a model that gently rocks back in forth like " Presto" your probably never going to get a n unsafe condition since you can take off the giggler by hand " with a glove" under full pressure and all that will happen is it makes a jet engine noise and will after a few minutes reach room pressure.

JUST MAKE SURE THE HOLE THE GIGGLER SITS ON IS CLEAR OF ALL OBSTRUCTIONS.

Hope this helps.

Per Hoyt. :-)
