Bugs in my Grain???
    #1046185 - 11/12/02 02:05 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I always wondered why they kept the health food store so freakin' COLD! Now I know....
I was previously throwing rye and water into jars and pc'ing with pretty lackluster results. I'm now trying various methods of soaking, simmering, even drenching in h202 in hopes of better results. Too early to tell if I'm going in the right direction, BUT -
While simmering my first batch of rye grain, I saw these little black things floating to the top. I fished some out and they were bugs. I called the store, and they said that the grains all have bugs and have to be kept cold or frozen to keep the eggs from hatching. I was keeping my grains in the cabinet - duh!
Now I'm fishing out every little black bastard I can - do I need to? Are these bugs detrimental to my experiments in any way?

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.

it'll add some protein.  :grin:  I doubt it would be harmful, unless there's an extraordinarily amount of bugs.

As long as you "sterilize" properly , no they should not cause harm , but pick as many out when rinsing grain before use . Hell a little extra protien might be of help .
Good Luck 
D you stole my smartass coment about "protien" , damn quick draw !  :wink:

Not many at all - maybe a dozen or so per 3 cups of grain. If I don't have to worry about them, I'm gonna' quit fishing them out. They are SO tiny, and I make myself crazy trying to find them all...
Oops, posted too fast. Guess I'll just keep on fishin' then..
