Wet Jars
    #1280401 - 02/05/03 04:00 AM (21 years, 3 months ago)

This is going to be my third attempt at PF style cakes. I managed to screw it up two times in the past. I just steamed my jars last night, and I'm worried they're too wet now. What can I do to reduce the ammount of water in there? Could I try putting the cakes in a pot on the stove for half an hour or something with no towel in the pot, so the glass canning jars are touching the bottom of the pot? Or should I just trash these cakes and start over?

Damn. Thats not wat I wanted to hear, but exactly what I was expecting. Now I gotta find brown rice flower somewhere. Any whole grain flower works, right? What are some examples of other whole grain flowers?

just get whole grain brown rice!! unkle bens style..

and grind it in the blender!!/food processor..

if you do what you suggested above, i'd asssume that the bottom of the jars will dry out, and the middle will still be soggy!!!

good luck!

4 of my 30 jars were way too packed and wet. However, my kik ass spore syringes has super power it seams and are trying desperatelly to colonize... but it was not enough. What can I do to reduce water in there? This is my second batch in life, and I still want to be able to say, I never had a contam or faliure...

they are (all) still taped with breathable tape...

you can buy brown rice flour at whole foods instead of ordering through internet and getting ripped on the shipping charge.

if you are having trouble with your jars being wet try this:
let your verm and brf sit for 12 hours before you put into jars. use tyvek also. i had the same problem, but the more you do it the closer you are to mastering your tek. gl

Be Sterile follow the tek to a T and you should be fine. I am doing my first ever batch and have all ten jars colonizing just fine. it has been 16 days since inoculation and almost ready to incude pinning. Get a good pressure cooker/canner and makes everthing easy. Good Luck and I hope it goes well for you.

I was never a fan of steaming. Invest in a cheap PC for now. Get a bigger one when your ready. Maybe you can try to completely cover your jars with foil. Wrap them up good. This may help. I got bags of brown rice from an asian food store. If you can find one, they'll have agar too, but thats alittle bit down the road for you. Try, try, and try again bro. Most of us here didnt have sucess right away. Keep your head up and give it another whirl!
