Sometimes when i've printed some nice caps they were really too wet to store safely..Often they look reasonably dry untill u slide em in the baggie..
So
what
to
do...?
First off , i like to print onto flat 1.5 inch squares of tinfoil where the cap
sits on a raised grid and never actually touches the foil....

The printed square is then just slipped into sterile 3x5 inch baggies...
This way the print is easy to see and u can either scrape spores from or inject sterile water with minimal hassel...

Well my last batch were initially a bit wet , so i placed the baggies in a larger freezer type ziplock with a handfull of dessicant ...
24hrs later the moisture had been pulled right out of the sealed polly bags
[moisture will pass directly through the polly]
and are now perfect for normal storage...

I sterilize half-pint jars with a piece of
foil inside and a poly filtered lid.

Then I put the cap on the foil for a day,
remove, and leave the print to dry in the jar.
