Three days is not long to wait. Sometimes there are no signs of growth for 2 weeks or even more. Now that you've opened the jars, it is even more likely that they have become contaminated, even if they weren't origianlly.

The first thing you should do is go to walmart and buy an extra large bag of patients. You opened the jars after three days? I've had jars that haven't germinated for weeks. But anyways, If your jars smell bitter then you probably do have contams. You can leave them to see what happens, or you could just cook up another batch, make sure you sterilize properly. Good luck.

I've only boiled so far, and I've gotten it up to about a 85% success rate. Just boil for longer than you would PC, I boil my jars for about an hour.

The best way to sterilize jars without a PC is to follow the PF Tek .

I leave my lids tight, holes open, with foil over the jar.

Yeah, just like Sts said, I do mine tight, with foil over the holes. Oh yeah if you didn't already, put a level of strait verm on top of the substrate. This forms a barrier that contamination has a hard tme getting to the substrate.

As long as you rinse them good with hot water, they'll be cool.  Sometimes this forum works fast, sometimes not, depends who's hanging around.  But you only need to wash your jars out with regular dish soap.  The sterilizing process kills anything lingering. :grin:
