my friend was wondering if she NEEDED to use canning jars when doing WBS in her PC.

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.

In fact, the Classico spaghetti sauce comes in Atlas mason jars. They work great.

Hey dudes, quick question for you all.


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 =)

are you doing cakes or grain?
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

That seems like it would favor contamination my friend.

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

Just make sure the tyvek stays dry especially with grains. Damp tyvek will still contam grains IME.

And make sure you listen to the suggestion of taping up the majority of the surface, or you WILL dry out your grains too much.
(Lids are super cheap $3 for a dozen at nearly any grocery store)

be sure to cover tyvek with foil while cooking,
don't want it getting wet.
and yeah, you'll need to cover much of it
else the jar will dry out PDQ

Thanks guys. One dude mentioned Tyvek was available at USPS, does he mean the envelopes that they are made of?

you can even log on to the USPS website and have them send you a good stack of envolopes for free...
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

Hippie, are those are the right envelopes?
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)

The free postal tyvek is all i've ever used and it works fine for me. I've never seen a contam grow on tyvek yet either.

thanx for the heads up on using the post office for FREE tyvek. i was about to dish out for a large ream of paper that was rather expensive. to people who haven't used it, they'll send you 10-500 per order from there website, free of charge. not even any shipping costs.
