Sterilizing spore syringe?
Posted 28 April 2021 - 02:24 PM
Last time I just pulled a few cc's of alcohol and then rinsed with clean purified water.... Wondering if it's better to pc them.

Sure, works fine. I've PC'd some syringes more times than I remember. I like to wrap them in foil first so that they stay clean if I don't use them for a while.
I sometimes set a few on top of my jars or bags when PC'ing grain for spawn, but for just empty syringes they don't need to be cooked at 15 psi. Even 5 psi for ~30 min seems plenty (I've never had a problem I could trace back to reused syringes).

Yep only need 10 minutes @ whatever psi. They can take up to 20 psi.

I was thinking of putting 3 of them in a pint jar covered with foil while I ran some grain jars. Just wanted to make sure they wouldn't melt. I'm gonna use them to noc up said grain jars with some LC

I did this just today, actually. I like to individually wrap mine (perhaps overkill). Then I put them in a quart jar, cap THAT, and PC. I've always done 30 minutes at 15 psi. Overkill again, probably. But they can take it. Sometimes I've thrown them in with LC.

Think next time I'm gonna wrap them though so I can use one at a time. Makes sense to keep em clean.
