Millet spawn bag just out of the PC
    #1862181 - 08/29/03 10:51 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

One hour ago I put 500ml of millet and 400ml of water into a spawnbag then into the PC. I've just taken it out and there is no sign of any liquid left but 50% of the grain is exploded. How do I stand with this, should I bother to innoculate once it cools or just start over again with a little extra water?

I also read another tek and I've been soaking 500ml of millet in warm water for a few hours now. Will I have more luck with this if I leave it till tomorrow morning then PC it for an hour.

Anyone who's used millet help if you can. I think shirleyknott posted a while back I'd be interested to know how you did it.

Look up 6T's wbs tek... it rocks.

Soak your grain overnight and drain and load.. it will be perfect!

no need to measure and mix...

I tried 6t's tek last night I didn't get as many explode but I'm worried there isn't enough water in there. His tek was with WBS not just straight millet.

should work either way....

How long did you soak for?

I find that it's a good idea to stirr the grain a few times every few hours to get the water in there as they expand.. always make sure you have a good few inches of water above the level of the grain!

Cheers PooPs. I've done that with this next batch and I'm soaking in warm water because i thought it might help the grains take on more of it. As for the last batch I soaked it for about 10 hours. What constancy is your grain when it comes out of the PC does it look wet or fairly dry?

I'm not sure if it's extra water you're wanting.. that already seems like a very high ratio of water:millet to me.
I've been doing loads of millet jars lately by just soaking it for 1/2 hour, giving a quick drain, load up the jars with the millet and then pour water in until it's at half the level that the millet's at. Which works out something like a mere 40ml of water to 300ml of millet. I've had no problems at all with it being too dry.

Edit: shoulda said that that was 300ml of dry millet when I measured it to check ratios.. when preparing jars you'd have the extra water that gets scooped in along with the wet millet. I use this method, with less water as suggested for millet.. http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...true#Post644625

dansta: you don't want it too wet.. if you soaked for 10 hours and then rinsed and drained if should have all the water is needs..

if you see water droplets it's probably a bit too wet!!
