innoc'd some .5 pints bout 19 days ago just and zero signs of growth? :frown: joy i think i did dry out the substrate apparently or something but i pc'd for an hour with 1 layer of tin foil and masking tape over the lids.  I think it was a shot syringe or is it just my imagination? Temps are in upper 70s close to 80s can that be a reason?  They look as if they've never been innoc'd and the other jars have some kinda caramel brown chunks in em it looks like which i didnt innoc to see if my sterilization procedures were good or not?

19 days sounds way too long to me. Also, PC'ing PF jars for an hour is overkill. Try 20 minutes next time.

Nope I let the jars setlle for overnite but anyone have any idea on what that brown/caramel patch is? Burnt substrate i'm thinking and I did at an hour at 10 psi thats why i did an hour vs. 20 minutes. Next time ima do 20 minutes and thats it with very little water. Also after I noticed that water made it under the tinfoil which I just dabbed off with a towel is this normal as well?

Hi, I don't know what to say.... Weather an hour or 20 minutes shouldn't make
the jars have zero growth. Sounds to me that your water in the substrate must be fucked either its too dry and thats why you're not seeing anything OR
I'm thinking when you pressure cooked you got water on the inside of your jars and they're too wet. Also when you have super wet substrate they seem to be more contaminate prone maybe this is why you"re seeing a weird patch of color.

Goodluck !

Open one up and smell inside, you may very well find that you have bacterial contamination (ie will smell not nice).
