WBS too Wet?
    #11380062 - 11/03/09 11:00 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Hello all,

  First off, whoever said having multiple projects going at once takes your mind off things couldn't of been more accurate!

  It's day 5 (first two the temp was 62, now it's controlled and up to 74) on my first BRF cakes w/ no signs either good, nor bad. I'm assuming that's OK.

  Anyhow, I'm working on my WBS, and am ready to jar them in quarts, but if I put a small handful on a paper towel they leave a bit of wetness behind.

  I've searched, and would like current thoughts on whether or not that's too damp. I've left them draining in the colander for 40 min's instead of Doc's recommendation (who's Tek I'm following) of only 20 min's.

  Thanks in advance, and you all rock! :wink:

  Sincerely,

  Sondor

Scoop some up with a spoon or your hand and then let it go. If a lot sticks it's too wet. If only a few stick then it's good.

Hey Feelfunny, and Nexus,

  Thanks for the speedy replies.

  You'll be happy to know I now have WBS scattered over my counter on paper towels, and some scattered across my linoleum :laugh:

  I think I'm borderline too wet based on the awesome Tek you posted, so will work on it. I'd really like these to come out well, so taking the extra step.

  For the record, I can't even feel any moisture on the bottom of my colander, but it's really quite overloaded.

  Thanks again.

  Sincerely,

  Sondor

When I prepare it, my counters are covered with paper towels so I can spread it all out to dry more efficiently; I can relate. I take paper towels and wipe them over the tops of the grains well to dry quicker.

It's just with all the time it takes to prepare that much grain, especially with the long PC times for bags, I try to cut down on time where I can.  Not only that, but it gives the perfect moisture content too.
