preparing popcorn
    #2058313 - 10/30/03 08:38 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

i hear good things about using popcorn. someone is gonna try it soon.

searched via search and through last 25 pages or so, no specific preperation teks out there. so i take it you just would simmer it for 45 min or so, drain and let cool, then load up the jars and PC it?

is there an ideal temperature or time for the simmering? some grains take water faster than others, whadda yall say, 30 min??? 45???

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!
BUCKETS BRIGADE left hand man!!!

let the pop corn sit in a continar of water over night, making sure the water is covering the pop corn. than i simmered the pop corn on low heat for 15mins drained for a 1/2 hour pc'ed and . Let cool and you are ready to go. Mine is colonizing very fast, good luck

Yes soaking for 24 hrs should be done, then simmer for 45 minutes+ (an hour wouldn't hurt), then drain for a while and pc.

The one or two day soaking allows potential bad things to germinate.

Here is a simple tec borrowed from Jay at Freespores- the site is closed so I can't give the link-I will do my best recreate it:

1/2 pint of popcorn for every pint jar you want of finished product
put desired amount of popcorn in Pressure Cooker in the bottom with water covering and allowing for room to expand- Just put it straight in there.
PC at 15 pounds for 45-60 min
Let drain for at least one hour-
Put popcorn into jars- fill 3/4 (or a little more)allowing room to shake the jars
Put tyvek squares on top of jars then put on metal bands and cover with foil
PC again at 15 pounds for 45-60 min.
Let cool overnight and then inject with 2-3 cc of spore solution
Cover needle hole with tape and recover with foil
This is an easy tech-It has worked very well and there hasn't been a problem with too much moisture.

Hope this helps- Let me know if you have any more questions or if it
wasn't clear enough.

No, I do not think I am above the law. There are times; inspired and enraptured that I feel I am BEYOND the law.
