Popcorn tek questions/ideas
    #1226888 - 01/17/03 02:49 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

As an extra sterilization step:

before soaking the kernels in water, microwave them for 1 minute or until the first kernel pops whichever is first. Let cool and then either begin soaking or microwave again if desired.

I just tried microwaving some kernels for a minute, then measured their temperature. My thermometer stops at 220F and it went all the way up. I think that should be good enough to kill any endospores or anything living in the kernels.

Any ideas?

That will be great if that works.

I'm going to try making two sets of jars: one that is microwave sterilized first, and one that isn't. I'll boil them both like normal (as I don't have a PC-the reason for this experiment) and then let them sit in my incubator without innoculating them.

If the unmicrowaved jars show consistently higher contamination, I think we'll know this works.

I am sure the unmicrowaved one will contaminate. Im not sure about the other though, interesting.
