What is the point of boiling the popcorn?

The popcorn tek says to boil the popcorn before putting it in jars and PCing it. What is the point of that? Its clearly not to kill contams because you have to strain it for half an hour anyway.

I think it is to make the popcorn hold the most moisture.

Ah I see. I have two more questions.

1. My pressure cooker is OLD (1940's) and it is very difficult to control pressure. Normally, pressure goes up to 20 psi if I don't constantly play with it. Is this alright? Can I shorten the cooking time if I have it at 20?

2. My friend has 3 jars, and 2 different liquid mycellium cultures. One of them is Golden Teacher, and the other is Mazapatc. Since he has 3 jars, 2 of the jars have to be the same strain. Which strain is better to put in the jar?

You should go with putting Mazapatc in the two jars because Mazapatc has 8 letters in it.

you should let it soak over night some contamination spores have an outer layer that can withstand pc'ing just after you have boiled it and are letting it sit for draining cover it with foil this will cut down on the chances of failure
