Any updates on those jars? :smile:
I'm interested in using CC as a substrate for some of the edible wedges I've recieved in the mail and it's a HELL of a lot cheaper than popcorn.

Let us know Effed?

My friend tried this with C.C, 5 times now. using different draining techniques. rinsing or draining overnight and still nothing..

It turns into like mushie corn pieces, He bought the cc from a pet feed store and Did Everything right, Pre-Boiled and all, Good prints and All.

It keeps coming back with nothing, corn turn dark and nothing.
Hes using a poly filter disks too.
What Keeps happening??? i though it was gonna be my golden friend but whats happening?

over cooked.
excess starch is bad.
reduce your cooking time and results should improve.

My foaf spawned (to straw) those three Amazonian quarts that you saw there and these were his results..





So if you heard that corn doesnt fruit.. you heard wrong.
This tek can be a little tricky, however it pays off.

Pussycontrol: I think you need to rinse the corn better, like a few times, and as hippie said reduce the cooking time.  :smile:
Good luck.

When the TEK mentions watching for a "slime" coating, does it refer to water that gets starchy and murky during simmering?

It refers to the corn getting a somewhat slimy coating on the outside.
Its not super critical but.. its does help.  :smile:

Good luck.

Which is better? Cracked corn or popcorn?

Elm oysters colonized Cracked Corn 100% in 10 days. Agrocybe aegerita is still just a little fuzzy on top, as slow as or slower than Shitake on popcorn so far.

Results are excelent. Cracked corn is the same price as straw here. $5 for 50 pounds of CC and $4 for a 40 pound bale of straw.
