I'm sure we've all heard the different ways of covering the holes on the jars during sterilization... but, what works best??? Whether it be a certain kind of tape, aluminum foil, or nothing at all, give me your opinions and experiences.

When I was doing BRF jars, I just used Aluminium foil.

use some professional masking tape, its water proof and can stand the pressure cooker. i tape up all the holes and leave the lid loose while i cook. when i open the pressure cooker i just tighten the lid.

Isn't there a possibility that the steam could enter the jar condense causing the vermiculite to become soaked??? Also, is it always necessary to cover the holes on the jar during sterilization??? After all, the steam does sterilize it... but is the point of sterilization to sterilize the outside of heat sterilize the vermiculite also???

Wrong. The heat sterilizes it.

Yes... but the steam sterilizes the outside of the jar. So, do you need tape at all or even aluminum foil???

So, should they be sterilized with tape on them then leave the tape on after innoculation, or should they be sterilized with aluminum foil then leave the foil on after innoculation???

During sterilization, my jar lids are covered with aluminum foil. The foil is taken off for innoculation, then two coffee filters are placed on the lids with a rubber band to keep them there.

4 holes, duct tape, no foil. Simple and effective.

I cover the holes with 3M micropore surgical tape. Get it from your chemist. This allows air into the jars to speed up colonisation, but keeps contams out. Aluminium foil over the top 1/2 of the jars while Pressure cooking.

I don't have a chemist, if I did I wouldn't be asking for tape, he'd be making me some LSD. But I'm assuming that chemist is something else like a drug store?
