boil or pressure cook
    #754481 - 07/17/02 09:00 PM (15 years, 9 days ago)

hey im a newbie to culitvation and ive been reading a lot about it and think i am about ready to start, but is it REAALLLY necessary to pressure cook the pf jars rather than boiling them? in the general info section of the shroomery it says that boiling can be used to get rid of most of the contam nasties but that pressure cooking is better to get rid of almost all the nasties. but is there a big chance of contam if i just boil the jars (since i dont have a pc at easy access)? and if i boil the jars how long do i do it for? i know that ur arent really supposed to boil the jar but just to put it over the steam to reach the highest temp w/o cooking ur substrate

Boiling can work, but if you can afford it get a PC, it's well worth it!

you can get a pressure cooker off of ebay...i just got one for pretty cheap, but its was a high quality one. they have pressure cookers for every price range on there. just look up key word pressure cooker, or canner:) happy hunting. i have a feeling a pressure cooker is going to be the way you want to go in the long run.

I hear boiling works ok with flour (hence BRF and Verm substrate for newbs), but for the superior grain substrate, pressure cooking is pretty much required.
