Try #2-- Boiling?
    #932541 - 10/04/02 06:17 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Well. After a first batch gone bad (12 out of 12 contaminated), I find out that the syringes i was given were horribly cantaminated from the get-go. Nice waste of my time eh? Anywho, There will be a new batch started soon enough so here in lays the question. Will boiling of the jar as described in the PF TEK really sterilize the jars as needed, or is a preasure cooker really needed? If anyone has boiled substrate jars and had growing success, please reply and let me know. Thanks guys and wish luck on try #2!

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

I grew for over a year without a pressure cooker, I think I've lost maybe 8 out of hundreds of jars to contams.

All my friends have had great success! Make sure to sterile your jars with bleach and water mix for a couple hours before reusing or your next try will fall to contams.
goodluck
