Need pressure guage for pc?
Posted 06 February 2005 - 08:31 PM
I am having about 50% contam rate on my pcorn jars. Is this normal? Should I bite the bullet get a pc with a guage off of ebay?

I feel it should be added that popcorn was nothing short of a headache compared to other types of substrates, like brf and rye and whatnot.
Hope that helps.

Anyone know if it hits 15 psi?
It does PF jars well but I'm moving on to WBS and see if my success rate improves.

Just FYI I installed one on my 22 qt Mirro just for kicks and the rocker is dead on accurate. They make these things to high specs so that people don't poison themselves with rotten food.
I hate the sound of the rocker so I put a mug over top of it once it starts jiggling. This incidentally increases the pressure to 18 lbs which can be dangerous but it has a safety valve and It has never blown, so I feel ok with that.
I must say I have done probably 500 runs with the old Mirro and in my mind it is the best value for the buck. An AA stereoclave will be the next step for me....I understand there is no annoying jiggling.
One more thing....if your going to drill and tap your PC make sure you know what your doing and get it right. If you screw up, your buying a new PC.
