popcorn tek?
    #1535827 - 05/09/03 11:12 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I am new to using popcorn .I first boiled the popcorn for about 10 min then let it sit for 24hrs and boiled it for about 10 more.Now the popcorn doesn't seem like it has absorbed enough water cause it is still a little hard.I can crush it with my fingers but it takes a lot of pressure.Will it soften up in the pressure cooker or should I be boiling it longer or is this the nature of popcorn to stay this firm.I never had this problem with rye but my house smelled like shit while cooking rye.That is why i want to use corn.

That sounds about right for popcorn.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.
