Problems in PC'ing :(
    #910092 - 09/26/02 04:35 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

The way i do it is pressure cook my jars @ 10psi for 20 minutes and takeout.  I use one layer of tin foil and mascon tape but water seeps in under my tinfoil layer???  Anyone else have this prob and if so how to fix it  also all jars i've done this way have not shown any growth after 16 days :frown:  Bad syringe or what?

I haven't worked with a PC before, (not for long, got mine in the mail today, WOOOOHOOOOOO) , but from all that I have read, I think that 10psi maybe a litlle too low. I think the lowest that I've seen anybody use was 12 psi. But like i said, i haven't worked with them so I may be WAY, WAY off.

Maybe too much water in the bottom of your PC? 1-1/2" should be enough.

Well good thing is i left some out of the PC and didn't innoc and theres no contams or anything i just had worried bout dryin out the substrate. Well i put just enuff water so that its barely over the lil thing that sits on the bottom and it still gets moist under the foil??? Also going to order a 15psi top for my pc'er.

Your jars should look relatively the same coming out of the pressure cooker as when
they went in. For instance, if their were air gaps between chunks of substrate before
PCing, there should be gaps when they are removed. The substrate should not be
waterlogged and pressed against 100% of the glass surface.

Another way to tell if there is too much water in the jar is if they gain weight after
coming out of the PC. If they are heavier than the jars that haven't been PCed yet,
there is definetely a problem. If they are waterlogged, don't waste your spore solution
on them.

I usually use two pieces of foil on my jars, with no tape. I also elevate the jars with some
spare jar lids over about 2 inches of water. 20 minutes at 10 PSI for me.

found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear.
