    Default Moisture after Sterilizing ! PLZ HELP!

    Hey guys so i recently purchased a pressure cooker for my sterilizing of my media bottles and vials. I went to sterilize one media bottle tonight in the pressure cooker after i had cook for 15 min at 15psi i got the pressure out fairly fast to keep the bottle hot then i covered with foil and put it in the oven at 350 f for like 10 min and now i have let it cool down there is moister inside the bottle but i do not want to take the foil off cause that will make is unsterile but how else do i get all moister out after sterilzing process ?

    Please help me out would be greatly appreciated ! For sure theres some tricks of the trade !

    Is your pressure cooker big enough so you can have the media bottle standing upwards. Because then you can just turn it around in the pressurecooker, and leave it there with the top left a little bit open. Be sure to remove the water from the pressure cooker before you do this.

    If not you have to make small holes in the aluminum foil so the moisture can escape. "worst case" you'll have to use aluminum foil to cover it while you sterilize.

    So i tryed again last night while i was finished cooking it i got the water out while it was still hot and kept it inside the pressure cooker with the corner cracked open a bit. Check it this morning and it still had water in it!

    I was thinking to presser cooker for 15 min at 15psi then right from the pressure cooker into the oven that will already be preheated at 350f leave it in the for 15-30 min (not covereD) and right when i take it out of the oven cover with tin foil to keep sterile. ? Would think be ok ?

    Usually if you remove all water from the pressurecooker and place the bottle upwards water should evaporate.

    You can also dry it in the microwave, if your microwave is clean that is

    Make some small holes on the aluminium foil so that you minimize the risk of getting anything in the bottle and place it in the oven so the moisture can evaporate.

    Worst case, dry it out again and place it in the preesurecooker with aluminum foil covering it.

    You donít have to put holes in foil, just bake at 350 for 30 mins and you wonít have any water issues.

    The reason i put the holes in the foil with the foil covering the media bottles is to release the moister and letting them cool in an oven that you use to cook ect is a perfect way for bacteria to form while you leave it in there to cool .

    I understand why you do it. Iím saying the vapor (you know when liquid changes forms) will be able to escape even without holes. Poking holes defeats the whole purpose of putting foil! Why even put it on if you are just going to poke holes in it?? To each their own, everyone has their own way and there is more than 1000 ways to do it and get great results.

    Another thing I do is after final rinse I put rubbing alcohol in vial, shake it, dump it out then put new piece of foil before I put in oven (buy a toaster oven strictly for home brew. Never put anything else in there) the alcohol isnít required as Iíve done it for a long time without it but added that step just because the last thing I need is an infection.

    Not trying to start an argument or anything just giving my opinions and concerns with putting holes in foil.

    Vapor won't escape if the bottle is covered.
    Just heating stuff does not make them sterile. (I'm talking about things that we can use at home)
    You need to apply heat and pressure to destroy most type of spores and bacteria.
    Poking holes does not defeat the purpose since the chance of getting anything in there is slim.


    I really don't recommend you guys doing what I'm about to tell you now.

    If you get clean vials (cases that come clean already wrapped in plastic from factories) the chance of getting an infection is still slim.

    As I've always told you guys, only thing we can do is lower the chances of getting an infection. If you're unlucky you'll get an infection because there are several factors that can cause an infection.


    Forgot one thing. If you guys buy sterile vials you really don't know what you're getting. They are only considered sterile if they are recently sterilized.
    And I never recommend medlabsupply. Specially not for people outside the U.S.
