Grain technique. Is this gonna work?
    #1939454 - 09/22/03 02:21 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I'm just using a bag of no-name parrot seed. Dunno exactly what the grains are, there are lots of different ones.

My plan was to simmer them for 30mins, strain for 20mins, then fill jars and sterilize.

Is it that simple, or do I have to do something to ensure the correct water/grain ratio, or have I used the wrong grains or something?

In the shroomery FAQ it says virtually any whole grain would be suitable, so I figure I'm covered there. But it also lists some ratios of water/grain depending on different types of grain. I don't get how you can ensure this ratio if you strain the grain and then put it into jars.

If 30 minutes is sufficient time for the seed to fully abosorb allthe water its going to then you should be fine. Grain will absorb as much water as it can hold if simmered enough.

Thanks dude. I think it's all okay, not sure though. I simmered for about 35 minutes, strained for 20 minutes. The seeds are quite soft. I filled the jars up 2/3rd full.

They look damp in the jars, so I hope the water ratio isn't too high. There's obvious moisture in the jars, little misty droplets on the glass and "wet spots" where the grain is pressed against the glass. It's certainly dry enough so that there are no water pools or anything if you tilt the jar. Is this okay?

I would be inclined to soak the seed for 24hrs before you simmer so you hatch out the endospores so the PC process kills everything off.

The simmer processs IMO is to reduce thermal shock (broken glassware) as a PC climbs quickly to 121C, that's 15psi. Put simply, cold wet seed inside cold glass just won't hack that temp jump IME. Other people will beg to differ. I put the jars into a stock pot of water and bring to the boil, then they simmer in that water for 30minutes. That way they (glassware/contents) hit the PC at 90C+ temp to avoid breakage.

That said, hope it works with what you did.

Btw. If you work out what your water content is by a few trials of various measures of seed to water (not too dry & not too wet), then you'll be able to do the 24hr soak and simmer direct in the jar and there's no loss of nutes to rinse nor mess.
