What instructions are you following? Essentially, here are the main steps:

1) Soak 24 hours
2) Simmer 1-2 hours (don't let water boil out or get too mushy)
3) Drain an hour
4) Put in jars with tyvek or polyfill and PC for an hour or so
5) Let cool for a few hours, take jars out, shake them to distribute wet kernels
6) Innoculate

IM(Friend's)E following these steps regardless of what the popcorn "feels" like is succesfully. The popcorn post simmering is about as soft as it gets, and even then it's not really that soft at all, still pretty firm. And my friend gets excellent colonization with this.

Does this answer your question?

Contamination resistance is the wrong choice of words. How about less contamination prone? I would have to say that popcorn (or some form of corn) is by far the most forgiving of all the grains.

But, I think all of the problems encountered with all the different grains are related to improper water content and improper sterilization techniques. Any grain will resist contamination when prepared correctly, simply because there is no contamination present. So essentially there is nothing to resist. If you have massive failures using a type of grain, you need to examine your methods before you look to the substrate as the cause.
