Huh, that's a new one.  It's worth an experiment.  Can you post the pictures?  If it works you will have something new to show us!

felt will work in a pinch.. i would suggest taking a trip to the post office and picking up some tyvek envelopes,  they will work best as a filter. make sure you still use the lid otherwise the cake will dry out real quick.

 

problem with felt if it is made from wool or cotton may contribute to contaminates because the myc will eat through the material. If it is a synthetic material then you will be just fine

Brother, you want to avoid Lysol if you can. It will cause mutations.

I'm using pressed felt sheets, I think they call it stiffened felt, from WallyWorld cut into discs as GE on some of my plastic lids for grain jars.........it works

 

And I spray 92% isopropyl alcohol judiciously............on my hands, the jars, while working and etc.........

Actually 70% iso is best, it has just the right water content to allow penetration through cell walls to kill anything bad, anything higher in alcohol content simply just doesn't have enough time or ability to make it through the cell walls like the 70% can with it's water content to break through and let in the alcohol otherwise your just germinating spores and bacteria.

 

Got my info from a RR PDF and researched it on a few sites, don't mean to step on any toes and lysol is basically water and alcohol (and fragrance if thats what you get) and is the same 70%/30% , just don't spray with the lid off or directly on the sub or inside the bin if you make one and as I read again from RR, Lysol dose not in fact cause mutations and I forgot what he said, if it's MS you might just get a few mutants, I have never used lysol and have had some cool looking ones like a mushies growing perfect with another developing at the cap making another mushroom cap to cap standing on one another and a mutant we called it the still water effect because it looked like a mirrored image.

 

Anyways welcome to this great nook in the woods friend!

The "eco felt" at Wally World and hobby lobby is a synthetic made of recycled plastic bottles and can be used as a synthetic filter disc on top of a jar inside a lid

Eazyfelt works great and I used to use it exclusively. Eazyfelt should be doubled up or used with a layer of micropore tape.

Why did you use such a large piece? Is it functioning as the lid also the same way some people use actual synthetic filter disc? If so the your jars will dry out. The downside to eazyfelt compared to SFD's that it allows more water and water vapor in/out.

of course i used the lids.. i put tiny inoculation/breathing holes in the lid too. and i doubled up cause i could see thru the felt so i wanted to make sure it did the job properly after sticking a needle thru it.

I punch or cut circles or squares slightly larger then GE hole and then attach it with a piece of micropore tape. I think it is almost as effective as SFD's and IMO it is better then tyvek.
