Need advice: Possibly jars too full and/or soggy. HELP
    #1773096 - 08/02/03 04:30 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I put 140ml of millet and 80ml of water into each 1 pint jar.

pressure cooked for 90 minutes at 15 psi. all jars were covered with tin foil.

the only problem is that the jars look a little too wet, meaning you can see water on the sides of the jars between the kernels.

However, when you tip the jars around no water is flowing at all.

The seeds are nice and golden color (originally white millet) and there are no exploded kernels.

Also I really cant shake the jars that much because it seems the jars are too full...


my question is will this little bit of water really harm them?

No worries. With millet you can have a bit too much water. It's not good, but not incredibly harmfull either. By chance did you soak the seed for awhile first? I like to soak my wbs for at least 12 hours then drain for 2 hours.

Sounds like there is just a little too much in there. Just when incubation unscrew the lids a bit and let it evaporate.

well i opened one up to see what was inside and it was one big clump of seed.

when it fell out it was hard, soggy and def. WAY too tight for mycelium to colonize.

so I emptied them all out and tried 2/3cup seed to 1/3cup water. the ratio is almost the same but a little less, and I drained a tad bit of water out of each one this time.

and ive got a bowl of seed soaking for 5 hours now so in about 4 more hours I can do another one if this batch fucks up.

Good call. After pc'ing remember to shake before innoc. the ssed always settles quite a bit especially in the pc.
