Instant Pot Sterilization

  • Just though I’d through this here so it may be more searchable. If you have an Instant Pot, it’s a good way to sterilize your homebrew gear. Just throw that bitch on steam for 10-15 minutes and let it naturally aspirate. I recently found not as many people were aware this has been tested safe for lab grade materials, as per a study by Dakota State University.

    It’s only Instant Pot’s that this level of sterilization is regarded as consistent, I’m unaware of other pressure cookers ability.

    Hope this helps some of you

  • I can also turn 5lbs frozen chicken breast into shredded BBQ in 25 minutes!

  • Are you saying throw finished vials of gear in? I’ve never really found a definitive answer on if that’s okay as a way of terminal sterilization, or if you’ll be risking your vial tops blowing out. So I guess we can assume the instant pot reaches 15 psi on a particular setting. Do you know which setting that would be?
