I just PC jars for 10 min @ 15psi. The white residue on the outside came from the water, don't worry about it. I know why you did it this time, but next time, PC the jars asap after preparing the substrate, once sterilize you can let the jars sit for a while if you have to.

Just to make it clear - this ain't me.
I had a hunch that the residue was mineral deposits from undistilled water. Do you think that the smell is just left over that everything has been properly boiled to death? I have finished another few paragraphs, and it appears that she plans to wash them in hot water with dish soap to see if that removes the smell.

Hears what I think she should do, wash the jars in a bleach solution, then PC the jars. Let the jars cool down for a while (oh I don't know about 2 hours) in the sealed PC. Mix up the substrate and bring the jars straight from PC to be filled, put lid on, and start sterilization process.

If you find that residue from mineral deposits annoying, then just add about a tablespoon of white vinegar to the water in the PC. No more white stuff!
