Sounds about right for the water level, maybe a little less, about an inch or so. It doesn't have to jiggle constantly, just a couple times per minute.

It depends on what type of pressure cooker you have. There I two types I think, the one with a gauge and the one with the weight. I don't have a gauge one but I think it allows you to set the pressure and there is a valve that exhausts steam when the pressure gets too high. The weight one (jiggler type) has a heavy metal thingie you put on top of the lid vent and when the pressure gets too high the steam pushes the weight up and you get a jiggling noise.

Funny story. When I first used my jiggler PC I didn't realize that it was supposed to jiggle. Basically I had the pressure too low for each batch (of food of course :wink: )I made. Luckily I didn't have too many contamination problems. Just recently I got the pressure up high enough that the PC jiggled and it scared the shit out of me. Quite a loud, startling noise. :wink:

Yeah, substrate recipies are dicey due to the amount of cooking and water that the grains take up. Do it enough times and you'll find that you estimate much closer for the amount of jars you have.
