    Quite nicely. I have everything pretty much at this point. I'm just looking for a good pressure cooker that wont break the bank, or other sterilization means. Hoping to start it up when its not a winter "wonderland".

    Awesome!
    Why exactly a pressure cooker though? Can't you simply boil the equipment in water?

    Water boils at too low of a temperature to effectively sterilize all microbes. You'd be surprised how resilient these single cell organisms are.

    It is not so much just an issue of temperature; but also the increase in atmospheric pressure offered by a pressure cooker / autoclave, which ensures sterility. Find a cooker which allows for at least 15 psi setting; anything below that is worthless . . .
