improvising jars & lids
Posted 21 March 2005 - 11:45 PM
she doesnt have any canning jars and doesnt have access to any right now
but what she DOES HAVE is a lot of spaghetti jars.
now are they a diff thickness as far as the glass is concerned? is there a different type of seal that the canning jars create?
or can she just punch her air hole in the center, put her filter/make her tyvek filter. and use the spaghetti jars?

I agree. Anything that will withstand the PC will be fine to use.
Im sure she'll be fine using speghetti jars...Ive used pickle jars and they turned out ok with WBS.

I got some small canning jars, that have metal ring which screws on, but no center piece for them. Woud tyvek stretches across and then held in place by this metal ring work? Thanks =)

if your doing cakes a peice of tinfoil will work well
if you are doing grains they tyvek will work... you'll just wanna make sure to tape up about 90% of the surface once they come out of the PC so the grains don't dry out during colonization

I say it ain't worth the effort & time. Just go spend a few bucks for some lids.

(Lids are super cheap $3 for a dozen at nearly any grocery store)

personaly i would just shell out the $$ for some lids.. though you will still need some form of filter like tyvek it makes shaking the jars a little less sketchy

Don't you want the ones that are not 25% recycled? Just have the Tyvek Trademark on them. (That is what I have always heard, but then again, tyvek is tyvek regardless if it is recycled or not I would guess)
