Not to insult your intelligence, but sometimes I forget to lock my lid on (mine has a switch you push up to "lock" the lid on and allow pressure to build).

im sterilizing 10 grain jars in my 921 right now. its been at 15 psi for about 45 minutes now. i was reading what u guys were saying and, i dunno, my release valve (with the weight on) almost continually releases very light puffs of steam, which evaporate pretty much the moment it gets out. i put 3" of water in the PC before i started and i can still hear quite a bit of water boiling in there. again, its maintaining 15, i hear the water boiling, and, well, now i've probably got 40 minutes left. everything seems to me to be working fine. should there REALLY be steam coming out only a couple times per minute??

oh yeah, and these little puffs of steam that are coming out smell like the rye berries... which i assume is a good thing.

jars turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!!

happy camper;)

after PC, turned off heat and went to sleep. got up this morning and opened the PC - 8 of the 10 jars were perfect - exactly like RR's in the grain spawn video. 2 of the 10 jars were just a little bit wet. i could shake them and they'd bust up and separate. but, hey, 8 out of 10 aint bad as far as i'm concerned.

**Bad thing**

This means your moisture is escaping from your berries.
Yes you SHOULD run it with as little steam escaping as possible.. This will prevent moisture loss, and extend the allowable lengths of run time. Pretty much, Your better off running your PC at 14.5 PSI then 15. You should NOT hear the water boiling. It should be just under its boiling point (But above 212* obviously..(Boiling points raise with pressure))

AGAIN... I didnt say anyone elses meathods were WRONG.... I said they were not OPTIMAL. In mycology we should all be aiming for 100% and nothing less... Just try the ***OPTIMAL meathod, you probably wont notice anything to drastic, But there is an improvement.

The ***OPTIMAL*** way is they way any AUTOCLAVE works. Autoclaves are designed to STERILIZE pressure cookers are designed to COOK at faster speeds. You are using a pressure cooker for unintended uses, so you should do so in the way a STERILIZER works.

Do youself(s) a favor, And look up the AA STERILIZERS, and the AA PRESSURE COOKERS. Sterilizers dont release steam the same way. They hold their pressure, and release it only a few times every minute or so, this is ***OPTIMAL***. The only real significant difference is the stainless steel basket that comes with the STERILIZERS. but for the price differnece we use the cookers instead.

When my autoclave runs it doesnt release any pressure.. It fully vents steam untill the temp inside reaches 214*F (2* above the boiling point, or 1PSI) then it closes... This way all "Cold spots" are forced out the bottom, becasue heat rises. Once the chamber closes it builds to the desired pressure, 15-21PSI and holds that temp by adjusting the heat, Not by releiving pressure. You only hear water boiling untill it reaches its setting, At that point it just maintains a constant pressure (temperature).

At the end of its cycle you have 2 options, a quick release for solids, and a slow release for liquids.. If you release the pressure from your cooker/sterilizer before it has cooled, You will steam off all the moisture in your grains, witch is also a bad thing, This is why we let them cool SLOWLY overnight.

From start to finish you should only loose water from the start-up, and from venting steam at the begining of its cycle.
