Grain prep ala GGMM
    #1862661 - 08/29/03 02:33 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Last night me and my roommates prepared 23 jars with 10 lbs of WBS. We used the recipe in GGMM, 200 grams seed to 220 ml water. The jars were left to sit overnight. I am kind of concerned because they show a VERY HIGH water content. There is at least a quarter cup of water in each jar that has not been absorbed. There are no exploded kernels. I am not sure what to do at this point. I could drain the excess water, allow to sit longer, or add verm to correct the water content. Any suggestions? I want to spawn these to oysters tomorrow.

In general for grains you want to soak overnight as you did and then drain excess water. Standing water in the jars is a no-no. I would drain them all in a couple collanders and then refill your jars, then PC. Grains are pretty easy, honestly, it's usually easier to just stick all your grain into one bug (or several big) containers and let soak together, drain, then put into jars and PC. You should be fine if you drain the water now.

Thanks for the help. I was under the impression that preparing grains in this method didn't require draining. Oh well. We drained them in the jars using the lid to hold the grains back. There was still more than acceptable residual moisture left so I added vermiculite by the quarter cup until there was no water standing in the bottom.

You should see my stove right now. My 941 is on the front right burner and my old shitty PC is on the back left. There are 20 quart jars inside the 941 and three in the old one. My old pressure cooker fits only 4 jars. My old PC would fit inside the 941 handle and all.
