Hello all,

I'm in my early forays into the exciting world of grains. I've read all the FAQs and plenty posts on the subject, but thought i'd test the local water on the subject of soaking and simmering pre-PC:

some teks recommend just pcing the dry grain with the right amount of water.
some teks suggest soaking beforehand, for 6 or as long as 24 hours, then draining 30 mins.
some teks suggest simmering until a few grains explode, then draining 30 mins.
some teks even say soak, simmer then pc.

i have birdseed. who can recommend a particular course of action (or, better, who advises against one from experience) ?

right now i'm 15psi/60min pc-ing seed that soaked for 24h and was well drained. floating seeds scooped and chucked. syringe making in progress at the same time, with an unlabelled cubensis that i have no use for: inoc tomorrow.
i don't mind too much if it all goes pearshaped, as this is the steep end of the learning curve.

Thanks to all who respond.


P.S. no war in Iraq!

some teks also recommend boiling till explode and 20 min again and drain
a tried at last time soak boil and pc.
but germination for bactari usually starts if it wants after 24 hour
for this reason 24-48 hour is suggested
i didnt read yet nowhere soak boil and pc but i did it
some of my jars are going good and also i didnt soak them 24 hour
i have got a question about do i have to put a little water in soaked or boiled grains
if yes how much -why -

mushroom culture history making ...Mr. Allan is the best .....

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson
