Question Concerning Cracked Corn Incubation....
    #1576082 - 05/25/03 11:38 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

6 days ago afoaf inoculated his cracked corn jars (12 x 250ml) with Ecuador...During inoculation he noticed that the grains were all stuck together, making it hard if not impossible to shake up the grains....

2 days ago he managed to smack his jars hard enough to loosen up most of the kernels in his jars.

His jars are incubating as we speak at a nice controlled 86 degrees.

When talking with Anno, he told him that if the cracked corn was clumped like that, and he couldn't get it apart, that colonization probably would not occur. And that he should empty his jars, pressure cook the jars again, but this time with some moist verm in the jars as well.

But now that he's finally got the kernels separated, he's wondering how long he should wait for colonization to show before he calls the batch a bust and tries out what Anno suggested?

Is cracked corn any different then just using corn? BTW I'm loving the signature. Fear and Loathing is great.

afoaf has had some success mixing cracked corn with whole brown rice. he mixes them 50/50 and lets it soak in a pot for about 12 hours then jars em. he thinks the whole rice makes it easier to shake the jars and they colonize very fast even if you don't shake em. you might want to try adding some gypsum as well.
