These lids are great for Grain Spawn!! You can noc in open air with little risk of contam!I would not use them for LC though. If LC gets on the tyvek your LC is dead meat, so that means you cant shake it to bust up the myc,Once again Beyond2, hats off to you! Very nice tek.

whats the point of the tyvek if your just siliconing the center anyway with a solid lid under the tyvek and silicon over both holes essentially? JW maybe I just need a little clarification.

The silicone is a Self Healing Injector Port (SHIP). It eliminates the need for micropore tape, and just makes things easier for WBS. Dont use this tek for LC.

I get that but, wouldn't you disregard the metal lid in place of the tyvek? or does it allow a small enough gap between the lid and tyvek to allow air exchange ?

There is a hole in the lid. You do not want very much gas exchange, or evaporation. Without the lid your jars would fail.

I got it! the laws of physics would tell me the paper thin gap between the tyvek and lid is enough to allow gas exchange .

MZ would you suggest two cut outs of tyvek or is one enough? I believe I have read that you should use two slips of tyvek.

one is fine, there is no real reason for two other than belief.

Can I use these as PF Tek style jars? Only thing is the holes for PF Tek are suppose to be closer to the wall of the jar?

You can. If you use this style, you do not need the dry layer of verm, and can fill the jar up with sub.

This is the lid i use for grain spawn. but with a variation. I find that is you place the clean tyvek on the lid, with the band. I then press on the tyvek where the hole is at in the lid, it leaves a imprint of the hole and I know exactly where I can place the RVT. This tek. can be done with grain already in the jars and you do not have to wait for the RVT to dry before you PC , it will come out of the PC solid.

This is true. RTV works the same way in a car engine. If you apply some to a head or something, and put the head back on, you can start the car right up, without having to wait for full cure in 24 hours. makes sense.
