Help needed!!!
    #859049 - 09/02/02 03:15 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I am sterilizing my jars right now and I had a quick couple of questions...

I just tryed to sterilize a batch of jars and the water boiled away and the jars were still in the pot cooking. I could smell the rice flour cooking before I realized what had happened (this is my first attempt at growing). How do i know if the jars are still usable?

Also...Is it ok to take the lid off and add water before all the water boils away? I would think that it would be bad to let the steam out...

Considering your not too far into it, I would trash the jars and start over. Just make sure you add enough water this time

I can't make more substrate right now because i dont have any more rice flour, and I have no way of getting any. how do i tell if the substrate in the jars is too dry?

Yes start over, and it is OK to remove the lid as much as u like the steam builds up within 30 seconds. Better to make sure the water level stays about half way up the jars.

It`s not actually too good to open your pot too much or at all for that matter.
You need the steam and the slight pressure of a std pot to sterilise.
When working with a PC you don`t open the pot at all and let the pressure build up for 1 hour.
So a PC works better by not openeing the lid and allowing pressure to build up.
By opening a normal pot whenever isn`t going to work as well.
Just start the process and leave the lid on.
Just make sure from the start that you have enough water.
Another thing would be that you shouldn`t actually boil the water for a solid hour, you need to bring it to a SLOW boil and maintain that temperature.
Which inevitably would not boil off any water.
S turn your temperature down.
