Soak Grain???
    #1049416 - 11/13/02 03:15 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Should I soak crushed rye grain similar to millet? I expect this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything via search.

Also to save time can I stack jars in my PC? I only have a small PC which can only hold 4 jars unless I stack them. The bad thing is that the jars on top won't even be partially submerged. How much water should I put in, whether for one layer of jars or 2 (being stacked).

If the rye is for making spawn? CRUSHED rye will CLUMP (bad). Whole rye is better.

You can stack jars in a PC. Same amount of water as when you don't stack.

yes, stack them. it doesn't matter if they are submerged. the steam is what does the sterilizing. why would you crush the rye? seems kind of pointless. stamets recommends 1 cup whole rye grain to 1/2 to 3/4 cups water in quart jars. works like a charm... or so i've heard.
