dry p.c. !!!!!
    #1859092 - 08/28/03 03:30 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

when my p.c. was done cooking(60 min @15psi) it was still rockin but when i opened it, it was dry! all the wqater evaporated really quick. now, on 5 of the jars the substrate looks darker on the bottom. did it cook or scorch or what? can i rehydrate it if it is dry or do i have to start all over again? i am hoping it just dried it up and will need more water, please help folks...

Try a new batch, put more water in the PC and turn it back once the pressure is up just to maintain a slow, steady rocking motion. Slow and steady.

how far up the jars did you fill the pc with.. water that is. ???

i usually fill my pc with about 1 inch of water ( with the jars in it ) and still have more than 1/2 after over an hour cook!

i usually have 1 inch with out the jars ..works for me
..well it also pends ON how much substrate you pack it..just fill it in tap gently and fill whaevas not level and pack lighty so the substrate is airy ..if you pack it too much theres no room for myco to grow..and has a hard time!
