Problem: I soaked the grain, rinsed but still came out dry!!
    #1819325 - 08/16/03 09:21 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

soaked millet seed for aprox. 18 hours, rinsed it and let it drain.

loaded into jars, pressure cooked @ 15 psi for 90 minutes.

they still came out dry... no moisture in the jars, almost like the cooker cooked out all the water.


what shall I do? maybe a soak for longer or what?

well what the fuck is going on... maybe my cooker is cooking too high or something???

i let the steam roll out for a minute or two, then i cap it with the regulator then wait untill it starts rocking heavily and then put it on low

When you took the jars out of the PC, was there any water left in the PC?

thats why I use BRF because it keeps the mositure in away better I never had a jar dry up on me yet when usinf it,But when I used rye I had jars dry up like you said and I had to take them and colonize a tray of sterizlied substrate and case it or else it would go to waste

You must leave your grains in boiling water for about 45 min. ( @ lowest temp. setting).... That's what makes 'em absorb water...... And no water droplets @ the sides of the jar is alright.... You should drain them for at least 6 hours after soaking.... So having no sign of moisture @ the sides of the jar is positive after boiling....

i've found that when using a ratio of 140ml seed to 80ml water works just fine. purfect moisutre content and nice golden colors.

i know when my FOAF did his first grains, he never boiled them and thats what caused him his porlbems with drying out and such, once they boiling came into play, everything has been hunky dory!

the problem was that my jars were too small. the box said 1pint jars, but they were the jars you use for small jam jars. so i got new ones, bigger mason jars which also said 1pint but just larger jars.... and that ratio works excellent.

as far as endospores germinating if you don't soak/boil..... nothing lives after a 90-minute, 15psi blast.


Another Q::::

the substrate comes out clumped but breaks up VERY nicely. however, i opened one and the substrate was very moist, but a tad sticky.

just curious to see if sticky is good?

There shouldn't be any visible moisture in the jars anyway. It's all in the grain. This is where it's supposed to be. Just inoculate them. They should grow just fine.
