Popcorn Rinse Q
    #1787922 - 08/07/03 12:27 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Do any of you rinse after you boil for 1hr and before draining for 1 hour? I simply strain the corn, then run it under cold water to rinse off excess starch. Now in doing this we are cooling the corn, and basically elimanating the evaporation that would take place if we dident wash it. So should we let it drain for slightly longer to compensate for the lack of evaporation? Do any of you not rinse your corn and still have good results?

yes rinsing corn is very important the starch build up on the corn will inhibit the growth of mycelium and still let drain for a good bit after wards corn holds alot of moisture that will pool up after a day

So after the rinse should I let it drain for slightly longer than 1hour(like 20 minutes). I have done the tek this way beofore with exellent results but I noticed the pooling of water at the bottom of my jars and realized that there holding more water in, due to the lack of evaporation. Why dosent someone add the rinse step in the faq?

I think a 2 hour drain wouldent be out of the question, after you rinse. I just pc'd 6 jars and there wet as hell inside. I see condensation everywhere! When I loaded the corn in it felt dry to the touch. Shit, I think I have a problem

i also have been adding dry verm to the bottom to hold access moisture and has been working very well also i have switched to cracked corn i find this much better then pop corn and less water pooling in the jar

All of my friend's popcorn jars have never been rinsed, and they colonized completely in 2 weeks. He just soaked, boiled, and drained per the FAQ. He did notice condensation in the jars, but no water ever pooled. IMO, the rinse is more of a factor with CC, or if you blow up a lot of the kernels in the popcorn.

Any insight on where I can get cracked corn(for cheep)? How much verm do you use? Does the verm colonize?

You can get big ass bags of CC at feed stores cheap as hell. It is often sold for deer feeders.
