I'm gonna go for this popcorn thang.
    #1637651 - 06/16/03 04:42 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok-someone make sure there is nothing wrong with this outline. This is my first time with grains-so I dont wanna fuck up. Lemme know if you see any steps missing here.

a. Take 12 jars and fill them 2/3 full of dry popcorn
b. Pour the popcorn out into a bowl
c. Pour spring water into the bowl until covered with ?? of water
d. Let soak for 24 hours
e. Check for ?? water, if not add more water
f. Low boil for 1 hour
g. Pour through a strainer and let drip drain for HALF HOUR
h. Now load the jars with a spoon 2/3 full
i. Put lid rings/tyvek on the jars
j. Pressure cook for 90 minutes at 15 psi
k. Let cool over night and inoculate
i. African ? Inoculate 6 jars and label with masking tape
ii. Mazatapec ? Inoculate 6 jars and label with masking tape
l. FLAME BETWEEN EACH INOCULATION
m. Cover inoculation hole with scotch tape
n. Put in incubator with previous twelve at 84 degrees


Am I missing something? Sorry-just a bit paranoid prolly, but please someone check this over for me. Just my first time with grains and I dont wanna mess anything up.

If you're gonna with corn, go for cracked corn. Effed has great results with it and has written a tek for using cracked corn in the Shroomery's document/info area.

Love & Light,

Boppity

doesn't look like it Mrsleep - you should be fine with that process. Boppity, why cracked corn over popcorn? Do you know for a fact that it is easier/better etc or is this more a personal preference thing. I ask because my friend is going to do more popcorn soon or maybe cracked corn. Anyone else have recommendations between the two?

Only if you plan on doing 24-30 jars. Popcorn swells up 2-2.5 times it's dry volume after soaking and boiling.

Of what, Cracked Corn vs. Popcorn?

Popcorn is probably easier, and less likely to fail, while CC is better for spawning bulk substrates, colonizes faster, and is the cheapest of all the grains.

Around here CC costs the same as straw. $5 for a 50 lb bag of CC, or $4 for a 40 lb bale of straw.

I think the trick to CC is to rinse the shit out of it, then drain the shit out of it.

I'm just now starting my first experiments with CC. I have Pioppino, and Elm Oyster just started Friday.

IME cracked corn colonizes a little bit faster but not much.  I filled my jars 1/2 full w/ dry popcorn to compensate for the expansion of the kernels.

Pink buffalo on cc on the left/ Lipa Yai on pc on the right both 100% colonized by the 9th day.  The pink buf was cased w/ 50/50+ a few days ago and the Lipa Yai was used to spawn some earthworm castings/verm.  Results pending :smile:

I agree you want to use less than 2/3 a jar of popcorn. I filled my jars 2/3 full BEFORE I pressure cooked (followed essentially the same procedures you outlined) and the popcorn swelled so much there was no room to shake. Since then I've switched to just slightly more than half a jar.
