Lowes has it.  Most garden stores/nurseries have it.  I have tired it and noticed very little difference, but its supposed to keep your grains from sticking together.

There are loads of posts on gypsum aka plaster of paris etc.

I have pc'd bird seed and have had no need for gypsum - none of my stuff has clumped together etc.  I have not tried rye berries they may be different.

Curtesy of Mickey Rouke  "I just simmer high millet birdseed for 30-45 minutes, rinse, and then strain. Let the grain dry for 15 minutes or so, then pack your jars and PC. Perfect water content every time."  PLUS no clumps !  :smirk:

I couldn't find gypsum either although I guess you could always rip apart some drywall.

Rye grain is most popular because it does not stick together and breaks apart easily without the need of gypsum.

I didn't realize that's what gypsum was.  It might be easier to find now.
Thanks! :wink:

If you have any home brewing stores in your area, they would be sure to have it.

thanks for the replies i'll call the home brew store. :smile: what exactly is the purpose of the gypsum? only to stop clumping  :confused: or is it a mandatory ingrediant? kramer is going to try a couple jars of rye berries. he heard they work nice.

Not mandatory - just to stop clumps
