Does it quickly go moldy with more than just a normal light, gray fuzz? The media will immediately be put into a non sterile environment anyway, so is it necessary to take steps that will only slightly delay critters or spores, while at the same time degrading your media with excessive heat?Yeah that's a good point. Attempting sterilization is something I'd only consider if you absolutely need to. A simple rinsing will take care of the vast majority of problems.
